I visited Abigails Hostel in May as a cheap weekend away with students to have a central location. Just getting round to reviewing now. There was a group of 6 of us and on arrival we encountered our first problem - despite email confirmation, requests and the perfect number to take up a 6 bed dorm - we had all... More

I stayed at Abigail's hostel for 4 nights in a 6 bed female dorm with an ensuite. This hostel is clean, comfortable, affordable and accomodating. With free breakfast, good wifi connection and immaculate rooms and bathrooms I was very impressed. Staff were extremely helpful and we're happy to help with any questions/ concerns. The vibe from all other guests were... More

For the money you are paying, you really cannot complain. It's comfy enough, convenient and they give you breakfast. It's pretty much exactly as I expected it to be, which is functional and pretty friendly. If you want somewhere cheap for a couple of nights you can do a lot worse.

When I mean a Dublin stay I imply a good place to crash in at night after a hard day's travel and partying! And Abigails is really good for that. You have a great bunch of people staying there, the receptionists are really helpful and centrally located. To add, I had to leave early morning before breakfast is usually served... More

I stayed in this hostel for 3 nights and I came away feeling ambivalent. There were strong positive points to be made of my experience but my overall experience was outweighed by the negative points. Positives: good social lounge area; good self serving kitchen; efficient staff who helped booked a tour for me; great location Negatives: not very Clean in... More

I absolutely loved my stay at this hostel. I read the other reviews and did not know what to expect, but it has exceeded my expectations. I am the type of traveler that just needs a good bed. I had the 3 bed female room. It was great! Met really nice folks here and had the best time at a... More

My boyfriend and I are currently backpacking around the UK and Ireland. We have had some bad luck with hostels in the past, but we loved Abigail's. It was one of the best hostels we have stayed at so far. We stayed there for 4 nights and had no issues at all. The rooms are clean and warm, the bedding... More

You couldn't ask for a better location, the rooms are decent and clean, the staff is helpful, and breakfast (though pretty basic) is included. Would definitely recommend for young travellers, on a budget, who just want to make the most of staying bang in the centre of Dublin!

Had a great stay here, so good in fact I cancelled where I was booked to stay the night before my return and rebooked with Abigail's. Great for a female solo traveller, felt very safe and it was in a great spot to see the sites.
