    It has been ages since I stayed in a hostel. I had thought about introducing my teenage daughter to hosteling this summer but wasn’t sure what to expect these days. So glad I booked at Abbey Court! It was great and I’d have no reservations booking here in the future. Great place to see Dublin from.

    The staff were very friendly and especially helpful. The hostel is located close to the main strip of bars which was great. However, the rooms are extremely cramped, making them very hot. There were no fans in the rooms, so the windows needed to stay open, but because of this it was hard to sleep because you would hear people yelling in the streets all night when they were coming home from the bars. The common rooms were a nice touch. The hostel was $91 one night which is insane and unrealistic.

    Very Good

    Great location and they have laundry, but probably the worst hostel I’ve been to so far. There’s no elevator so you have to carry your luggage up a lot of stairs. It’s like a maze to it was difficult to find my room. The room itself was bad. There’s a tiny window for a cramp room of ten people. It was difficult to breathe and it smelt like mildew. I realize the last day that there was mold on the corner one of the walls. They don’t clean very well. Housekeeping don’t clean the floors.

    The room with an en-suite is much nicer even though there were more beds in the room. Still weird that the curtains for both bunks were connected. Also made the booking with my friend, yet we were given two separate bunks the second time around. For what you pay it’s decent.

    The check in was easy. The building is old, so a little bit tough to get around. There were activities but they weren’t through the hostel, just other booking agents. There weren’t separate curtains between beds, which was a bit awkward.

    I wouldn't necessarily recommend this hostel...the mattresses on the beds are very hard and the atmosphere isn't very communal. The staff are very nice and helpful but the environment isnt very comfortable. There isn't really a place to relax ..because the mattresses are so hard. It kind of felt like living in a highschool lol I actually wouldn't doubt if the building used to be a school...
