Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel. It is very disappointing to get a review like this especially when we work very hard to ensure our guests are happy with their experience. Firstly, we have a large staff of cleaners who clean all common areas twice a day and sometimes more. We also check that... More

Except its location, I think this place is much worthier than the conditions offered by some other hostels near by (such as Abigails which is just on opposite side). The kitchen area is very dirty, common area is noisy and look like a pub, rooms are small (and in the room I booked heater was broken), the stuff is unfriendly... More

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are very disappointed you were unhappy with your experience here. Firstly I can assure you our staff do care about our customers - they are hired under very specific terms. We usually score very high for staff so perhaps someone was having a bad day and I... More

My friends and I stayed at Abbey Court Hostel for a weekend of fun, And the welcome we received was second to none, Lucas on reception took us through the drill, With much zest and energy - to him it was clearly run of the mill, He proved a real character as he told us what sights we could see,...

This is a very nice hostel, with plenty of pleople, and a great mood! breakfast are great, and the location is really good too. The staff is really generous and fun, is a different enviroment from the one you would get in other hostels like Jacobs or other kind of more professional hostel. Here you have a homy mood with...

Rezeption very small and often overcrouded; good kitchen but annoying hostel-owner, who grumbles all the time to clean the dishes, although really everyone did it, he always says it´s the cleanest hostel in Dublin, but it isn´t!! it´s ok but not super clean; very very central; lockers under the bed, very bad and slow computers in the computer room, all...

Could not recommend this hostel highly enough! Perfect location, really easy to find the place and it's literally right in the middle of the city,a few minutes walk from temple bar. Seems to be really well maintained, especially considering its quite a big hostel, as rooms and toilets were always clean. Loved the artistically painted walls - made the place... More

I spent a couple of nights here while backpacking in Dublin and it's a perfect spot for any backpacker. The best things are the location, it's right on the Liffey so everything you need is walking distance - pubs, shops, banks, sights, bus station and train station. Plus the Guinness brewery isn't too far either. The hostel is massive inside... More

Hi there, Our receptionist was only being nice when she said you can eat as much as you want. It was meant to mean you can enjoy it as an 'all you can eat' service. The bed may have been empty but that doesn't mean someone else hadn't booked it yet they just had not arrived. Moving peoples beds can... More

I spent one night in Abbey Court and was so impressed by how lovely and helpful the staff were. They even let us get ready for a night out the day after we left, letting us store our bags and booking us transport to the airport. Room was lovely and clean, good facilities for getting ready (bathrooms and mirrored areas)... More
