Visited Abigail's hostel in March and was really impressed with it. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The room was comfy and clean. It was really warm there with the heating so you won't get cold. The location is amazing! I'll definitely come back again and stay here. We had a 6 bed room for the 6 of us...

This is a nice place to stay if you're on a budget. Unfortunately, we had a room with large windows in the front of the hostel. So it was very cold in the room at all times. We asked them to turn up the heat, and they said they would, but we felt absolutely no change. It was December when...

Perfect Location (near to the principal attractions and nightlife, easy to find, good connection with the airport). Silent and warm rooms (there's also usb adaptor to recharge elettronic stuff). The staff is very friendly. Good breakfast, with a discrete choice! Wi-fi is free and very fast!

Absolutely loved our stay in Abigail's at the weekend. Staff were friendly and helpful and the accommodation was great! We were in a 6 bed all girls dorm and it was perfect- only downside was that the shower was cold but it woke us up that's for sure. Comfy bed, clean and good locker facilities (if you don't mind paying...

We spend a great time in Abigails Hostel! Amazing location, friendly staff and good quality services for the price :) Maybe they have to improve the cleaning of rooms and common zones. But generally and in relation with the price it's really good.

I had a great experience at Abigail's Hostel. The rooms were large and clean, and there was a nice modern lobby. The breakfast was great as well. You must show your key at all times to get into the hostel itself, so I never felt unsafe here. The bathroom was dimly lit and not so pleasant, but it was bearable....

We stayed 4 nights there, and it was rather nice. The dorm was clean, so was the bathroom, andevery bad had its own lamp and socket. We had a lot of choice for breakfast and the location is amazing (near Temple Bar). I highly recommand this place to stay in Dublin!

Abigail's is a good hostel. It's clean, the staff are friendly and its in a great location.. But if you're looking for a hostel where people talk to each other and hang out and go out together etc that doesnt happen here. It's so clean that it's kind of sterile. The lounge is in reception.. And that's the only hang...

It's a very comfortable place. Very friendly staff, security boxes, right in the city center, 24 hours reception, kitchen at any time, breakfast included, really clean rooms even if shared rooms. There's also a free-walking tour to show the city. Close to spire and temple bar

This hostel is pretty good. It's clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The common area and kicthen are pretty big. After my recent trip in Europe over the summer I have decided hostels are not my thing.. but this place wasn't too bad.
