We prove that amongst all hyperbolic triangles of equal perimeter or quadrilaterals in a given geodesic ball the regular polygon is the unique minimum for the first Dirichlet eigenvalue. Moreover, we give a geometric description of the set of all hyperbolic triangles with a fixed base and prescribed area.
