“Pure gem in the heart of dublin!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed here the end of may with my friend, we were attending a concert! Great value for money, can't get much more city centre than ere! One of the best hostels I have stayed in, very safe and we loved the fact we could charge our phones by usb or by plugging them in to a dock on the top of our bed! When we returned during the early hours we had to stop by reception and show our receipts to the receptionist on duty and they would return our room keys and buzz us into the accomadation section! Will definitely be returning again!!

For the price you pay, this hostel was awesome. Great location right downtown, and working wifi!! (This was huge as touring Europe in hostels usually it didn't work in your room) I would definitely go back.

A good hostel with all you need; bed, clean bathroom, breakfast included, wifi, and a good location in the centre of Dublin. Spent three night there with friends and we all agreed it was a good place to stay. And it's very cheap!

Great location close to city centre. Hostel was generally clean. The price was very reasonable. Had no problems what so ever and reception seemed fairly friendly offering advice etc. Would recommend and stay again.

I just needed this hostel to stay a for 3 nights to visit a friend while I was in Dublin. I recieved a very warm welcome when I arrived and the staff were very professional, friendly and helpful in every way.

The dorm I was in was right next to the road and right around the corner from temple bar so it got it was always noisy and busy at night time with traffic and drunken people.

Overall a great place to stay if your a young backpacker or in a youth group. well done to the staff

I genuinely can't fault this hostel. The location was perfectly central and close to all the main attractions. We stayed in a private room for 3 which was clean, comfortable and well equipped. It was a little noisy at night but that's the price you pay for being so close to all the action. Great value for money, helpful staff, good atmosphere and decent sized room. Would definitely recommend for a trip away with friends.

This was the first hostel I had ever stated at and my first trip abroad from the US. I was worried about how a hostel would be since they are so much cheaper than hotels but Abigail's was certainly a 5 star place in my opinion. The common room was nice, the room was clean and the private bathroom was an unexpected plus. As for the staff they were unbelievably helpful, especially one man named Ciaran who put in the extra effort, at 4am mind you, to help us find where the bus pickup was to the airport.
