Abigails is in a great location, overlooking the River Liffey, near the Halfpenny Bridge. The airport bus stops a couple of blocks away and there's a Tesco's nearby for self catering. The staff are helpful, efficient and friendly. The dorms have ensuite bathrooms and comfortable bunk beds, each with its own light and a couple of electric outlets for charging...

This was my first stay in a hostel. I was pretty good 😀 I enjoyed the feel of the place. It was relatively clean. I was a bit shocked when they handed me my bedding to make the bed myself. I wasn't expecting that 😂

The location couldn't be better, perfectly by all the pubs in the Temple area an easy walking distance for anything in city centre. Easily accessible to and from the airport for 6 Euro on the 747 bus and a car park around the corner. The staff was extremely friendly and the place had everything you'd need for a comfortable enough...

My friends and I shared our own room of 8 for 3 nights. It was our first experience with a hostel but came out thoroughly impressed. The rooms were well kept and exactly what you need. The front desk was very helpful and informative on what attractions to do and which ones were to be avoided. Also they have great...

My friends and I stayed in a 12-bed-room with dirty toilets and showers. We received sheets full of hair upon check-in which can be described as representative of the overall hygiene. Breakfast cups, plates and trays were dirty as well and the food on offer was presented in a highly unappetising manner. The whole experience was rather unpleasant and expensive!...

A group of 7 friends stayed here for 3 nights in Sept 2016. The location was perfect for everything, from sightseeing to bars and restaurants. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The staff were friendly and knowledgable. And I would highly recommend Abigail's as a great place to stay

I stayed at Abigails hostel for a weekend in Dublin. The location was great being in Temple Bar and close to pretty much everything for a night out within walking distance. It was nice that people had to be let into the main area by staff which made it feel secure and stopped random people wandering in. The staff were...
