The staff did not tell us that there was a luggage room, so we paid 3 euros each to rent a luggage locker...

I enjoyed the spacious rooms even when you are sharing the room with others. I didn't really enjoy the showers as they had no water pressure and were not big enough at all! Also, the bathrooms were disgusting and had a weird smelling musty ness to them. House keeping comes everyday and are very nice! Didn't meet anyone here as everyone seems to just be very cliquey and you don't get a tv in your room. Towels you can rent for 1Euro(great deal!).

Absolutely amazing, nothing less

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.

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!!
