    At first I had some trouble walking inside the hostel because there are many levels, stairs and hallways but after 2 days I got used to it. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The place is clean and I felt comfortable leaving my things on my bed when visiting Dublin. It was a really nice experience.

    Great location, cool decor, friendly staff, I had an ensuite dorm but there were also showers next door. Good facilities overall. I was only staying overnight before a tour but if I come back to Dublin I would look to stay here again

    Abbey Court had very nice and helpful staff and a great location (within short walking distance of main sight seeing areas without being too loud, and close to public transport.) However most staff members were not local and we did not get very helpful dinner suggestions when we asked. The atmosphere was probably great for party-ers and teenagers, but I would not describe it as cozy or chill. The size of the place and the number of people wasn't conducive to meeting other travelers.

    Definitely more aimed towards groups. Cool place with a great location but cages under the bed didn’t even fit my bag and my room key occasionally didn’t work. Breakfast was alright, good for being free, and all the extra rooms and amenities were pretty nice. Walking tour was awesome, highly recommend for solo travelers

    Close to the center. Hostel staff are nice. Breakfast is pretty good, but crowded. Kitchen has barely any decent pots and pans. Not a lot of communal necessities like oil. Beds are clean and comfortable. Pillows flat. Lockers under the beds. Mostly large groups that stay here- can be very inconsiderate. Showers are cold water only and work by continuously pressing a button. Pretty unusual for a European hostel to not even pretend to try to heat the water. Expensive for what you get.

    This hostel was not for me. The building was very confusing. I arrived late and had some concerns with the security of people coming in who were not hostel guests and then lurking in the halls. The front door was left open so anyone could wander in. Bedroom was clean but the shared bathroom only had two stalls. Wouldn’t stay here again or recommend it.

    It was the worst hostel that I have stayed at. It was dirty, the water for the shower was burning hot that can’t be adjusted, it was like a rat maze, I was only there one night it was so bad. Plus they tried to rip me of money. They tried to charge me more than what was advertised. I would never advise anyone to stay there.
