Location is very good, right in the centre close to bars and shops. Stayed in a 12 bed mixed dorm which was fine, apart from the only way to regulate the temperature in the room was to have the windows open. We stayed on a very hot evening and our room was next to the main road outside which meant... More

My two girlfriends and I were travelling Europe for our first time together. We knew a good way to save on costs was to stay in hostels rather than hotels, but we were skeptical to say the least. Being from the Midwest, we were under the [FALSE] belief that hostels were dirty, scary places where serial killers lurked. (I think... More

The best thing is by far the location! Extremely close to everything including all attractions. We walked to everything except for Kilmainham Gaol. The streets are easy to navigate and it is situated on the river so that helped as well. The hostel is situated right next to the temple bar area which is the party spot but it wasn't... More

We spent 2 nights here and loved it! The staff was SO friendly and helpful! Breakfast is included, lots of common space to use, and they give clean sheets, duvet and pillow covers, and towels. Location was also perfect! Also a bonus - usb and other charging ports are installed on each bunk bed! Would definitely recommend and would stay... More

The staff here was super friendly and helpful, the breakfast fare was very comprehensive, the location is very central, and the common area near the entrance is very conducive to meeting folks. Can't think of much more to ask of from a hostel.

Location is fantastic, just a step away from Temple Bar, Trinity College, Grafton Street., and the bus stop for the airport. Romms are a bit too little, but well equipped. Wi-fi is in all rooms. We left too early and did not have breakfast, however it was possible to have a coffee and some food left from the guests also... More

Right next to all the main drinking spots and with rooms of up to 12 perfect for groups. About 10/15 mins from most of the main tourist attractions, easy to get to and right on the river. Security is excellent for a hostel and could not be better even for room access. Some slight issues - the temperature in the... More

This hostel was in an excellent location, and had a comfortable lobby/lounge with TV and Wifi. It was also very accommodating with luggage storage before check-in and after check-out. However, our bedroom (a 6-bed female dorm) was very small, Wifi was not accessible at all in the bedrooms, the lights in our room were very slow to turn on (one... More

I think Abigail's is great! The staff are very nice, the location is perfect ( right near temple bar, but not ok top of any bars so quiet in the evenings, it's close to restaurants and tout bus areas too), and every time I've come I've met some great people. I would and have recommended it! The only downside is... More

First impressions... Myself and my friend had added onto a hen do which had already booked, we couldn't get into their hotel so had a look around and came across this hostel. We'd never stayed in a hostel before and were a little nervous, however it offered rooms with just 3 beds and guaranteed all female guests in them so... More
