The hostel is located right by the river Liffey, and by O'Connell Street, with connections to pretty much everywhere in Dublin. The rooms were good, no frills but also not dirty or horrible. There were a lot of noisy young people hanging out in the common area every night during our stay, who were very annoying, but their noise did... More

I just stayed here with two friends in a shared 6 mixed dorm with ensuite. The location was perfect, the staff was helpful and the bunks had a light and power outlet. To my surprise breakfast was included, it wasn't anything special (coffee, juice, tea, toast with butter and jam, hard boiled eggs, corn flakes, canned fruit and yogurt) but... More

Me and my friends had a really good stay at Abigails. Staff is really nice and are always willing to help you with anything or give you recommendations about the city. It is very well located; a short walk away from attractions like the City hall, the Castle, etc. and right next to the pubs and places with night life.... More

I got a 6-bed only female room and could not complain. The room was clean, the staff was nice, and the breakfast good enough. The wifi signal was not strong so I usually went downstair to use my laptop, but the common area is big and confortable, so not a problem. The localization is great, central with a walking distance... More

Great room, great location, great service. We were in a private room (43) which had a double, single, wardrobe and desk, with an ensuite. Ignore the horror stories its a great place. Easy to find and WiFi in the rooms (yeah the signals weaker than downstairs, but it's not a Hilton so stop expecting 5* amenities) Breakfast was super, had... More

Stayed here for a few nights with a group of friends over a weekend. Rooms were good size and amenities were good. It is really great location. Staff were friendly and professional. Great big common area on ground floor and very secure. Thanks for the stay.

I was tired, so I checked in and went to sleep early and I have a nice night. There were lights and plugs above every bed, wich was great, since you didn't need to fight with the other roomates about who is going to charge their phones. The internet signal wasn't strong on the rooms, but in the commom area... More

I found my stay at Abigails Hostel very average. The staff are not overly friendly. The cleaning and kitchen staff seem as though they don't enjoy their job at all. I stayed in both the eight bed and six bed dorms. The eight bed was much better, including electrical outlets and lights above each bed which was very nice. The... More

A great breakfast, modern decor, great customer service at reception. The biggest minuses for me were the prices of the lockers in reception and that there were none in the rooms. Not enough plugs in the rooms, but the beds are comfy. It can be quite noisy on party nights from the noise of the sidewalk outside, but the rest... More

I had backpacked for over 5 years and been a manager of hostels for 4 years and I have never seen a hostel as poorly ran as this one. When we checked in we asked if we could rebook as the prices had gone down considerably and if we could move our deposit from our previous booking to our new... More
