Facilities were good, but the outlets on my bed weren't connected so I had to use the outlets on a different bed. Atmosphere was good and shower was better than most hostels. Relatively quite despite being very close to downtown. Would recommend.

Beds were very uncomfortable - we could feel every spring and left sore, bruised and sleepless as a result! The wifi did not work in the room we stayed in. Reported to staff and was assured that it would be fixed, but nothing was done. Shower early as hot water runs out. In all other respects, it's a typical hostel.

Great location, every thought its on a pretty busy street i didn't even hear much at night. I liked that they gave us towels too. The breakfast was okay,but the hard boiled eggs were nice. I was suppose to be in a 3 bed dorm with my aunt who i was travelling with however they put us in 2 separate 3 bed rooms, which wasn't a big deal cause we were only there for one night but just to warn anyone, they said that you should call a week before to assure you're in the same room together.

Worst wifi ever. Wifi only worked in lobby and stairwell. But, the room (I was in a 3-bed with bathroom) was excellent. So clean, comfortable, and nice. Clean shower, friendly staff, awesome breakfast, great location. Only issue was the wifi.

The curtain in the shower could be a newer one.

Nice location with a great view from my room. The ensuite bathroom is clean. It is very convenient for going out in Dublin. And once again thanks you all again :)

Three of us were traveling together, myself, my husband and our 84 year old friend who had never been to Ireland. I picked Abigail's because of its location and that it had a lift. I'd stay again because of its location, its security, the big common room, lockers, decent breakfast, not bad rooms (I've been in smaller!), and the helpfulness of the staff.

Possibly the best hostel we have stayed at during our gap year. It's very clean and the facilities are great! The kitchen is awesome, best we have had in a hostel. Wifi is great and there is a big common room you can sit in with comfy couches. The breakfast was really good! Again, best we have had at a hostel. The location couldn't be better. Loved our stay here! Would come back for sure.

Abigail hostel may want to consider offering a few washing machine for us to ease our trouble. Saw a few room mate refreshing their clothing instead of sending it for laundry which is few mins across the street.

Great location with a knowledgable staff. Breakfast was typical - nothing special. Stayed in a 12 bed mixed dorm which was nice. Lots of windows but when closed the noise from outside couldn't be heard. Multiple in suite bathrooms/showers but only one shower was working at the time :/.. I also stayed in an all female 8 bed dorm which was crammed and dark. I enjoyed the bigger room much more. All in all Abigail's got the job done and had free luggage storage which was convenient. good for price!
