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... More

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... More

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...

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... More
