I went as a solo traveler ! More families and business men than anything else !! Hostel is very big and hard to socialise with other travers, wouldn't recommend for solo travelers ! Would recommend for older people !!! A lot of people staying here for reasons other than travel

Great place to stay in Dublin. The location is perfect, really near from the tourist points. The staff was really nice. The only bad thing was the noise in the bedroom from the street. But it was a good experience.

Stay was great. Staff very friendly. Place clean and even eggs as part of the continental breakfast. Great location in walking distance to everywhere in the city. Shared with 2 super quiet women and had a great sleep. Will definitely visit again.

Great location and awesome staff. Came with five other girls and had a room to ourself. The bathroom was nicer than expected and the rooms were ok! We kept finding hairs in our sheets though, which was a little gross, but that was the only downfall.

Having struggled to find a decent priced and good location triple room, Abigail's turned up trumps. The location couldn't be better, ideally sandwiched between temple bar and the river, just over from o'connells st it's the perfect place to explore from. Easily accessible from the airport for €6 on the 747 bus. The staff were extremely friendly and the place...

Hands up immediately, the only reason the three of us stayed here was because our daughter was complaing about the cost of hotel rooms in Dublin and said it would be a "life experience" for us to stay in a hostel as my wife and I have never been in one before. Well experience it certainly was. I've rated it...

The hostel is located really just in the centre of Dublin city. You can walk to a lot of places. The rooms are for 10 people big enough but only have one toilet and a shower together in one bathroom so "traffic jam" is pre programmed. There is a kitchen to cook and breakfast included in the price. The only...

The location of this hostel is amazing and it's right near lots of traditional bars with live music and you can stroll along the river or to any of the sightseeing destinations in town. The communal area was quite big and had room for lots of people at breakfast even when the hotel was full, it was also a comfortable...

Around the corner to Temple Bar district, and around the other side to Trinity College. The staff very knowledgable and helpful. I was in a dorm of four double bund beds and one bathroom/shower. I felt comfortable and secure. Mostly young travelers some ahem elderly. 18€ per night great location on the River Liffey. Laundry on the corner. All rooms...

Everything was perfect. I stayed in 3 bed female dorm and I was pleased how clean and cosy the room was. Good price, WiFi, hairdrier and breakfast just everything what you need for few nights in Dublin.
