This hostel is very nice one! Your localization is strategic and the staff is very kind. You will not to regret.

The beds were SO uncomfortable. I understand the value of using upholstery foam instead of mattresses, but that stuff is not great for an extended stay.

It is a very busy hostel in the centre of Dublin, which is great. Staff is ok, in-room facilities are brilliant, the little power-station at each bed (USB Plug, Light, Power Plug) is amazing. All good, would stay again!

Great location. Guys on reception were helpful and friendly. We did sleep in a few mins on check out day but the girl who reminded us was in a foul mood. Hostel is clean. Unfortunately no outdoor area but the communal downstairs area is ok.

What you expect is what you get. Just a fine hostel if you're looking for a place situated around the corner of Temple Bar, with friendly staf, a decent breakfast and fine beds. The bathroom wasn't perfectly clean but ok. We, a group of friends in our late thirties got what we were looking for: a good and cheap place to sleep for a great weekend in Dublin. For that goal I can definitely recommend Abigail's.

Abigail's is in a perfect location near Trinity College, Temple bar area, and the CityLink bus stop, and they have a good breakfast (eggs, fruit, toast). The woman cleaning the common area was fairly rude, but the rest of the staff were great. The beds were clean and comfy, and private bathroom in the room was nice and clean, but if we had a full 10 person room, one bathroom could have been a problem. It did get very loud at night, though.

Solid Hostel. The location is the real selling point, right next to Dublin night life. Breakfast included, though a bit subpar. Had some difficulties with room assignment (my friend and I were not in the same room as requested) but an understandable situation with how busy they were. Guy at the front desk was very accommodating and kind. Would return.

Cheap but not really nice. Stuff was helpful and frendly, but the kitchen is far to small and one toilet for a 10 bed girls dorm is definitely not enough!

Dorms were horrible. 10 girls one bathroom. The matresses will hurt your back for at least a week. You have to go to breakfast very early, otherwise there would be too many people and no dishes. Would not stay there for another time.

Wifi is good throughout the hostel, the place was pretty clean, in a GREAT location. Staff is nice and friendly, too. The only drawback was that there aren't individual lockers in the rooms; you have to use one of the ones in the lobby, and you have to rent them out for periods of 6, 12, and 24 hours. Other than that, though, I would definitely stay here again.

The Location was perfect. We were able to walk to all major locations. The staff was very friendly. They had a ton of options for breakfast. I wasn't a fan of how it was displayed. The beds were comfortable. The floors needed a good vacuum. Overall we had a pleasant stay! The usb chargers on the Bunks were amazing to have!

The only negative say I have to say about this hostel is related to the clean staff. They could be a little bit more friendly or at least say good morning and/or excuse. In particulary the woman in the morning, reaponsible from cleaning the comum area downstairs.

Awesome!! The staff were so helpful in assisting us on which yours to take and what sights to see. We signed up for the Cliffs of Moher trip and weren't able to make it due to extenuating circumstances, Keith was able to switch our dates so we could still attend at a later date. It was a great experience... Thanks!!!
