    Superb hospitality! It was my partner and myself’s first time in Ireland and the staff at Abbey Court made us feel right at home and welcomed! They offered engaging conversations about the city and gave great suggestions on dining, drinks, and things to in Dublin! The rooms were great and the beds were comfier than any hostel we’ve been to before! Thanks for a great first time experience in Dublin!

    I absolutely loved our stay at Abbey Court! The front desk was so helpful with directions around Dublin and suggestions on food and activities. It's a great location, right on the Liffey, and walking distance to Temple Bar, Trinity College, Grafton St and so much more! We stayed in both a 6 bed mixed dorm and a 4 bed female suite. I definitely prefer the suite and having a private bathroom and shower. I will definitely be staying here again!

    First time in Ireland and using a hostel. Was traveling solo and looking for friends. Immediately as I entered I met so many people. Good atmosphere. The people in the reception were helpful especially Kai. I thought this place was 10/10. If possible, I would spend a little bit more to get a better room. My room had 6 beds and that was good. Other rooms with 12 beds may be too many people

    Mold in the rooms and you can't sit upright in the bottom bunks which makes it really uncomfortable. Other than that, the location is amazing and the breakfast is actually extensive and nice.

    The toilets and showers are honestly so gross, the staff are terribly unhelpful. I paid over 100€ for two nights, which I could’ve paid at a hotel for better service and clean facilities. I would look elsewhere for accomodation.

    It was dirty, the staff did not want to help me get into a lower bunk, I'm 63 with 2 false hips, until I told them I was leaving 3 hours after I checked in. NEVER AGAIN.
