This hostel is right on the river and it's next door to a supermarket, which puts it as the most accessible hostel I've ever stayed at! The rooms are nice and the beds comfortable, each one has its own little light and charging station. Outside noise can get a bit loud since the room I stayed in was directly over...

The room was clean and simple, the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. I would definitely recommend staying here if you want easy access to the Temple Bar area. Nice to walk along the Liffey in the morning too. Free breakfast was a bonus and the other guests were very friendly. just a generally chilled atmosphere.

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights. Hostel is in a super good location. The included breakfast is good. The 8 bed room gets very hot at night. It's what I expected from a hostel and for the price you pay. Would recommend it to friends coming to dublin

A hostel really close to everything. A few steps from the shoppingstreets. A supermarket right outside. Frindley staff and a very good and big breakfast. Rooms are clean and quite. Worth the higher price! Will recommand this hostel for everyone! Cheers for a good stay!

Abigail's Hostel its for sure one of the best hostel in Dublin, though it might be a little expensive. It's in the city centre and about 15 minutes on foot to the bus station. It's also very close to Temple Bar. Nice rooms e gentle staff. I strongly recommend.

This was by far my worst experience at a hostel to date. I stayed he before and had a wonderful time, however I stayed on a higher floor. Both trips were in 3 person rooms, which I booked since I prefer a little bit of a quieter room. The first time I stayed there was a little street noise, but...

Best location for exploring Dublin - it is just in the city center. Social area is also very nice, and so is staff. However, I wouldn't recommend female dorm rooms. Waiting for a bathroom when you're with few other women may be not easy;) But next time in Dublin I will definitely choose this place again!

The most important thing you need to know about this hostel is that its location is tremendously good, so that can actually overcome any other problems you might find there. I traveled solo, stayed there for 10 nights; it was my first time in a hostel and it’s (much) cheaper than any hotel – but I found some disadvantages: a...

I was in Dublin for work, but stayed an extra days for leisure and this hostel is just as good as it gets. The location is the best, close to all stations (tram -or Dart as it is called, trains and buses) as well as to all the major tourist attractions. I stayed in a three bed room and cleanliness...
