Here’s some recent guest reviews, culled from Tripadvisor and, so you can check out what people have to say about Abigails:

‘Great hostel, will definitely stay here again!’, Jul 2014, USA, Male, 18-24

‘This place was fantastic’

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.

‘Staff were very friendly and helpful. My room was very clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place to anyone as it’s also in a great location right on the doorstep to temple bar.’, July 2014, England, Female, 31-40

‘Pure gem in the heart of Dublin!’

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 here! 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 accommodation section! Will definitely be returning again!!

‘Great hostel – awesome common area with plenty of space to hang out. Good breakfast. Easy to walk everywhere from here.’, Jul 2014, New Zealand, Female, 18-24

‘Excellent hostel – great location, good breakfast, friendly staff and clean and secure facilities.’, Jul 2014, Australia, Female, 18-24

‘Great staff/location/shower/food…what’s not to like!?’

I stayed here on Saturday 12th July with a group of eight 13 to 16yr olds who were at all times treated with friendliness and respect. The staff really make this place (not that there is anything wrong with it otherwise but they were just great) They were at all times friendly, knowledgable and helpful on every subject we threw at them (including where to find skate parks so not just your normal touristy stuff).
The room was lovely and clean with comfortable beds and an en suite, fantastic, hot, powerful shower (my daughter wanted to take it home with us).
The breakfast is also great for a hostel. Eggs, toast and jam, tea, coffee and juice, yoghurt and tinned fruit in unlimited quantities…just help yourself.
Unbeatable value for central Dublin. I would heartily recommend it to anyone and will be back again for sure.
