Bed linens looked like they had been used for centuries. Rooms were VERY small for the number of people shoved in. Awesome security and location though.

The dishes for the breakfast and to cook (lunch) was always kind of dirty (not well washed) and also the room and toilet (inside the room) was dirty too. Cleaning is very important when I choose a hostel and there was not good! They really should pay more attention on that. Apart from that, the location of Abigails hostel was excelent, very close to Temple Bar and in a central area with shops and restaurantes. It´s kind of safe, I just would prefer with if I have a locker inside the room.

Perfect location, and very good facilities. The common area is very good also for meeting people. The only suggestion is to have lockers in the dorms rather than at reception where you have to hire a locker.. I also liked in the dorms each bed had a small light and power plug.

A nice, clean, single-person bathroom was in the room rather than down the hall, which was a nice surprise. There was a bit of noise from the street but not too much, and the hostel itself was quiet and calm. The common room is pretty nice and sociable.

We really enjoyed our stay in Dublin and the amazing value of the hostel. I rated security 4* because of the self use of the luggage room without supervision. 4* for staff because night team less friendly and available than day team. 3* for atmosphere as one client used the lobby like his personal living room without consideration for others (watching videos high volume), and really loud people shouting in corridors at night. 3* cleanliness bc mould in the bathroom and food in plants in lobby!

Great location! There is a free breakfast that is decent, nothing too too special but it's free so hard to complain too too much about it! The staff were super nice. I forgot my earrings there and emailed them after and they kindly offered to send them to me.

Great place to stay. Only disappointing thing is that one of the toilet doors was busted and couldn't be locked.

No free lockers, other than that it was great!

Abigail's hostel was a great place to stay in Dublin. It is on the River Liffey and is a close walk to Temple Bar (such a great neighborhood) and a 20 minute walk from the Guinness Factory (really neat tour). We found it to be safe, clean, and a nice place to base our Dublin travels.

Loved it here! Staff is super friendly everything is within walking distance if you don't mind walking! Met some really cool people in the common area! I'd definitely stay here again!

The hostel has a lift in it which is extremely useful especially when travelling with heavy bags and staying all the way up the 3rd or 4th floor! The breakfast is simple but adequate, place is kept clean, and the ensuite bathroom is very much appreciated! No more clutching shampoo bottles and towels while looking for the shower. The staff is friendly and approachable at all times, even the cleaning lady was kind and friendly! each bunk bed had their own reading light and plug/USB points too!!

The bigger room we had was cleaner and the bathroom was bigger. Small room you could barely move in there and there was mold. Each bed had its own light and usb charger site which was lovely. Yogert and bread for breakfast. Safer to leave you bags in ur room then the luggage room. Staff were lovely. Hated how everytime we left we had to give back the key not loose a slip of paper and then chec back in.

Staff could have been friendlier on check in and explain the layout of hostel etc a little better. We had to ask the people in our dorm.

We really enjoyed are stay at Abigails. Stayed there 3 nights, and had good time watching World Cup soccer in the main lounge area. Security was great. Our room was near top floor, and windows out to alley. Not all windows had locks . Our room had an ensuite and it was fine . We were offered ear plugs when we checked in....so thought oh, oh.....but actually was quiet after about 10 or 11 p A quick update on facilities we checked in would have been helpful. Otherwise staff were great.
