Front desk staff were fantastic. Cleaning staff could be a little rude. Breakfast was perfect, great selection. Comfy beds with own light and PowerPoint. Just no personal lockers in rooms, you had to pay for them downstairs. Great location, close to everything!

No lockers in the room, not enough lockers to pay for in the lobby, keys don't work, junk breakfast, loud at night, unfriendly staff. The list goes on... The only thing I'll give it is it's great location.

It was a great stay in Abigails with a staff very welcoming !!

Beds were comfy and each had its own set of outlets, a reading light, and a shelf. Some weren't working so be sure to test it out before picking a bed. The room had plenty of space and didn't feel too cramped. Bathroom was fairly clean. The wifi was fast. The only downside is the key cards; they very old-fashioned punch-cards and can be a bit difficult to use. The breakfast was better than most hostels.

Enjoyed my stay and it was worth the money paid for it, great location right in the center of the city and the staff was helpful. Would recommend to other travelers seeking similar accomodations

Great hostel and great location. Easy to get to from the airport (747 and get off at O'Connell). You can't beat the closeness to the Temple Bar area and the main part of Dublin. The staff was great- always someone at the desk and very helpful. The rooms were awesome- light and USB outlets above each bed. The kitchen and lounge area are right next to each other so everything is very close. The breakfast is pretty good as well. Highly recommend!

Stayed in a 12-bed mixed dorm. WC facilities in the room were not the best. There were 2 toilets (with sinks inside), 2 shower rooms and 1 open sink were in our dorm room. One of the toilets did not have a working light and the toilet with a working light did not have a toilet seat. It was a little annoying to have only one toilet that had a light but not a toilet seat but it was not a big deal. Otherwise pleasant stay at Abigails, and fantastic location in Dublin!

The location and staff are excellent, the breakfast is good, bedrooms were clean and shower was hot and with reasonably good pressure.

I ended up staying in two hostels in London. Sky Backpackers being the other. This one was the worse of the two. Not as clean and it was annoying having to return the key every time you left the building, and then having to pick it up again when you got back.

Really good facilities with the best/cleanest kitchen I have come across in a hostel. Huge common room with lots of sofas, tables and even a tv. No lockers in rooms but you could pay for ones to store your valuables downstairs. All rooms had ensuites which were well maintained and cleaned everyday. Breakfast was good and served for a long time which was handy, it consisted of boiled eggs, some fruit, cereal and toast plus tea, coffee and hot chocolate available all day.

It was my first experience staying in hostel and I can tell that it was really great! The location is awesome - everything in centre is 5-10inutes walk. Also the staff was really forthcoming and helped with some information about Dublin. I stayed in room for three people and got to sleep in big double bed which was really nice. Will consider staying again there if coming again to Dublin.

Good location and great common area for people on the hostel, nice opportunity to get to know other people there. Bedrooms were clean and shower was hot and with reasonably good pressure. Breakfast consisted of some serials, fruits, and toasted bread with butter, good enough.
