Despite feeling like amaze to navigate, this hostel was great value for money for the weekend in Dublin. Plenty of space in the room and everything worked perfectly. Staff were nice. No complaints :)

Hostel was immaculate and the staff were very friendly. Very secure place to stay. Heating, toilets and showers all worked perfectly and there was a decent amount of space. Only real off putting thing for me was seeing a rat running around outside close to the entrance but obviously that is no fault of the hostel. Would recommend 👍

A great hostel, very nice staff and accommodation. If there was a room for chronic snorers it would be fantastic but only in a perfect world! 😂 Would highly recommend.

Abigails Hostel

Dublin, Ireland

Great location, helpful staff, several add-ons such as luggage storage came at a cost. Lights in toilet didn't work in our room which made things a bit inconvenient. The breakfast was good and it was a spacious hostel. The major turn-off for me was the inconsiderate French speaking guys in the room who had no problem having conversations at full volume while the rest of us tried to sleep.

Best hostel in Cork. Very easygoing and friendly staff. The cleaners are a credit to the place - it was immaculate! Sheila's Hostel need to seriously up their game.

Sheilas Cork Hostel

Sheila's ranks at the lower end of the scale. The room was cramped which I didn't mind, there were no lockers and storage came at an extra cost. The washrooms were fine, below average, but fine. Two serial snorers in the room with attitude problems who also got annoyed when another guy asked to turn the light off as the rest of us tried to sleep. There were two people sharing one bunk meaning one of them did not pay and stayed for free. Dark-haired female receptionist needs a new job elsewhere.

Sunflower Beach is closed for the season, a little disappointed but Rimini is dead at the moment! Staff were very helpful and really did their best to make sure everyone had a good time. Shower and toilet space is quite small which I did not mind but just an FYI if you are particular about things! Would certainly recommend :)

Great location, very good value for money (nicest free breakfasts I have had in any hostel!) would definitely recommend. Still no idea what the barman trying to be quirky was saying instead of "thank you very much" though!

Location is a bit far out, be very careful with the bus and train times or you'll have to pay €40 for a taxi from Leiden! Lovely hostel though, lovely staff and very easygoing (Emma, Melissa, Rob, etc) would recommend if you want to go to the beach and get out of the centre for a bit :)

Once again this hostel was fantastic. I always stay here when I come to Paris, and I will continue to do so! Great location, etc however the staff were a particular stand out positive on this occasion, in particular a girl from Belgium and a guy from Tunisia who were very helpful and friendly throughout - an even bigger bonus after running the Paris marathon! I always have and will always continue to recommend this hostel, it was worth every penny.

A nice hostel overall, I was lucky to find it to be honest and on one of the nights I never realised that there were blankets to use. Also In one of the 8 bedroom a bed blocks the door, which was a bit annoying. Other than that a great spot and not too far from the centre plus the dinner was really nice!

Definitely the best hostel that I have stayed in in Paris! Staff were extremely helpful and courteous, a great location (even if Gare du Nord doesn't have the greatest reputation!) and I met some lovely people there. Will certainly be staying here again!

It was a nice hostel, a bit expensive but it's in a great location and Athens itself is a bit expensive. Please fix the wifi though! Also I would highly recommend British George's walking tour! :D

West Ham was a lot harder to get to than I thought! (The train lines were a disaster at the weekend, make sure you check it out before arrival). I walked right past the hostel, you wouldn't even notice that it's there unless you go into the pub and ask the. It's a busy hostel but the staff are very welcoming and helpful. Free breakfast is also a huge benefit and it's comfortable. There was a funny smell but it didn't really bother me, excellent value for money!

This was a great hostel to stay in, and it has so much to offer! The staff were really friendly and helpful. The most off-putting thing about the hostel was the guests in fact, they didn't clean up after themselves, were noisy, etc. A lot of them were lacking in common courtesy and it's not the responsibility of anyone else to change that. Still though a nice location in a lovely area, I'd recommend this place to anyone visiting London!

Hostel is a bit far, but well connected with the metro! Not as hectic as well because it's quiet outside the area in comparison to the rest of Paris. Free wifi, plenty of space and place to put your bags. Very secure as well. Well worth staying in, free breakfast included in price also the staff are really friendly!

Zebra Hostel

A really nice hostel, fair enough the air-conditioning isn't great and the mosquitos are annoying at night but it's big, with a lot of facilities and a good atmosphere, I honestly don't know why people are complaining because it's a nice spot with a supermarket and metro stop not too far away.

Easy to find once you take the bus! Very big, spacious rooms as well and comfortable! Ended up being a nice group of us at night in the common room which created an atmosphere could be different other nights of course. No wifi though but the staff were nice and helpful, small supermarket nearby open until 7:30pm as well, I would recommend this place!

The hostel was difficult to find at first, but to be honest anywhere in Venice is! We ended up being given a 2 bed private room and it was great! The place was quiet enough which didn't bother us and there are a number of facilities available. There is no air-conditioning but it wasn't a big deal when we stayed there. There is a charge for wifi though, be warned!

Firstly, this hostel is nowhere near the centre of Bologna. It took us a good while to find it. Once we arrived there, they told us that there wasn't any room in the main building, so they moved us to another place which looked like a haunted house in a poorly lit area about 100m away. There was no wifi or facilities in this part so if we wanted to use anything we had to walk to the main building. The room was clean, the staff were friendly but to be honest I would not stay here again.

Had a great time here. Staff were really friendly, great location and a fantastic atmosphere! Their breakfast is excellent and included in the price, and it's so close to the beach. Only downside was the music during the day was so loud when we were trying to watch the Olympics but overall I would highly recommend this place and I would love to come back :)

Really enjoyed this hostel, was very lucky to be sharing with a really great gang! Plus AIR-CONDITIONING that actually works in Rome is a major plus. There is a bit of a backpacker/poser vibe to the place I will admit but for the most part I would highly recommend this hostel.

I think some of the comments I read before on this are a bit ridiculous, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this hostel. It's in a very nice location close to the Vatican and the shops/restaurants nearby are good value for money. The staff were friendly as well!

Such a fun hostel, met some great people, very friendly and accommodating staff! If the check out could be a bit later and possibly if there was somewhere to make food it would be ideal but even without those things it's top notch!

Certainly not the most central hostel, but still a good distance between the airport and the main centre. There was no real atmosphere around the hostel but the other guests were friendly, the only main recommendation I would have is to hair air-conditioning in the rooms!
