    This was our first trip to Dublin so we did not know where we wanted to be. Abbey Court was the perfect spot for walking and public transportation to everywhere we needed to go. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay there again.

    Very nice hostel in the middle of city center. Everything is in approachable distance. The breakfast is really nice (especially for the fact, that this for free and that the hostel is kind of a big place). Very clean. Very friendly, helpful and happy staff! The kitchen will be closed at breakfast time. That is kind of inconvenient, if you wanna have your own breakfast. And also: This is a place for bigger groups. So, if you are looking for a quite and more peaceful place...choose another one.

    Loved this place. Perfectly placed in the middle of the city, walking distance from SO MUCH stuff. Also super close to the bus stops, so I did not have a long walk at all after traveling. The hostel itself is huge, and was a bit confusing to get around, but I felt completely safe and everyone was so completely friendly and good to talk to and I met some really cool people here.

    The best thing about this hostel was the location! It was perfect, close to everything! I felt let down by the facilities, only 2 toilets per floor, 1 male, 1 female meant I would have to go to other floors often. The extras (cinema, hammock room etc) were shut (COVID), I understand this but for the price it was very expensive for what was a budget stay, breakfast was a great bonus tho! I would stay there again in a pinch as there were no major issues but I expected a lot more for the price.

    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.
