We went only 2 nights. We arrived and the toilette was broken. The hostel was full so they couldn't offer another room. Breakfast was fine. The best thing of the hostel is location. Honestly, I don't think I will be back again to this hostel.

As the title states, this was my first hostel experience. I was nervous making the reservation, but a friend was going with me, so that eased my worry. We booked two beds in a six bed room, female room. The hostel is located in prime walking distant from the Temple Bar area, so great for checking out lively night life....

This was my first ever trip going solo and first ever time staying in a hostel. I did a lot of research before booking a hostel and went with Abigail's based on the TripAdvisor reviews. With this being the only hostel I have ever stayed in I can't compare to others but I can say that the staff were great...

Location of this hostel is wonderful. I took a 22 hour layover in Dublin and booked here because of the location. It is close to the temple bar, and the University as well as the whole downtown area. It was my first time in a hostel. The common room was great to relax in. The beds each had a USB...

For my first experience in an hostel I have to say I was very surprised. Everyone was very nice with me, everything was clean, they have lockers and safe lockers too. A luggage room. Breakfast included.

This could not be better located, right by the Ha' Penny Bridge. The room I was in (3 beds) was very clean. The breakfast was good and most of the staff were quite helpful. I did have some issues with the airport transport recommended by the hostel and little to no help resolving it, but other than that my stay...

I stayed in a 10 female dorm bed; the hostel has a great location, walking distance to the most attractions such as Temple Bar, Trinity College, St Patricks. The staff was very polite, good atmosphere. There's room, which is used to serve the breakfast as well as a lounge. The room was clean as well as the bathroom. The USB...

Me and my friend stayed here for 3 nights during the New Year's Eve period. This was my first time at a hostel and my friend had previously filled me in on the things to expect. The staff were great, very welcoming and very helpful with information about the city. The accommodation is a little sub par if I'm honest....

Great location which made my trip easy!! Hostel was good, rooms clean, although no space to store luggage and lockers were downstairs. I was in a room towards the back so noise wasn't an issue. Super breakfast and common room. Would recommend to friends.

I stayed in an 8 bed female dorm. The room was clean and nice. The location is the best thing about this hostel though. It made my visit to Dublin easier than I thought it would be. The only bad thing was that people did check in right before midnight so they were really loud making their beds ready and...
