great staff, amazing location


80%

Staff helpful and pleasant. No pillow or blanket on my bed when I checked in but the staff were very quick to remedy this. Decent breakfast included. Location is fantastic, right in the heart of the action. Little pricey at the time of staying but can't fault this too much as it was the St. Patrick's Festival Weekend! Would stay again.

The hostel location was pretty good! But the staff were unpolite. The breakfast was awful, the dishes were dirty. We have to pay 3€ each 12h for the locker (it's suposed to be free). The atmosphere was weird.

Awful breakfast - our FREE breakfast consists of cereal, toast, eggs, fruit, yoghurt, juice, tea, coffee and hot chocolate - and its all you can eat we have a FREE luggage room and if you wish we also have lockers which can be hired , this is advertised clearly on our site

Not my favorite place I've ever stayed, but not bad either. Good location and nice facilities. The fact that there is a lift is definitely also an added plus.

Abigails was great. I was traveling on my own and felt very comfortable in this place. Staff on hand 24hrs and felt totally secure there. The rooms are nice and set up perfectly. I was in an 8bd and every bunk had its own over head light/shelf/charging station. Each room has its own bathroom too. Shower got real hot real fast, but the hostel doesn't supply towels.

My experience with Abigails was really good. The hostel was safe and clean and had a good breakfast. Also the staff was nice and helpful. My stay would have been a bit better if there were one more bathroom in my room (I stayed in a female dorm for ten people). But over all my stay at Abigails was really good. Oh, and the location is fantastic!

Its very good that they have breakfast included in the price but the rooms and the environment is a bit old and it smells chlorine everywhere

This was my first time staying in a hostel, and I was pleasantly surprised by my experience. My sister and I stayed in the 3 bed female dorm, and we both felt that the place was secure and clean, and we felt very comfortable there. My sister noted that it was way better in cleanliness and security than the hostel that she had stayed at in Barcelona, and she wished that she had heard of A Star Backpackers before. Overall, we were very pleased! Thank you!

Everything you want in a hostel. The best thing about it is the staff - top notch service all round. If you asked me to pick out something negative I would really struggle. Maybe the beds aren't as comfortable as they could be. But im really nitpicking. Great hostel.

Excellent location, near all the facilities and amazing night life! The beds with personal light and power spots (even usb) is really helpful, staff very friendly. Great breakfast!!! The shower box was dirty but it also depends of the people from your room, not a hostel problem ;).
