"I love how welcoming it was from the minute you got there. It felt very safe also because there were secure front doors. I was on my own but had absolutely no hassle with 5 other strangers, everyone was quiet and lovely!"

Liked: La ubicación es perfecta, está justo en el centro, cerca de o'connell street, temple bar, trinity college, la estación de autobuses, la limpieza es buena, el desayuno también. El staff es amable, llegué antes de la hora del check in y me dejaron guardar mi maleta, es muy seguro. Es una buena relación calidad-precio.

Disliked: Mi habitación estaba en el 4to piso y el wifi no llegaba hasta allí. El check out es muy temprano y el check in es muy tarde.

Liked: Great location.

Disliked: Slight problem with there only being 1 bathroom in the 8-bed dorm, and no communal ones on our floor - if you're in a group and all getting up at the same time, showers will take a long time!

Liked: The rooms are very nice, the shower in the room I used was a bit cramped but not a issue. Thought was good that each bed had its own individual plug socket- handy for charging things over night! The big lobby area was good with plenty of seating and a large tv for those who wanted to watch. Free breakfast offered. Location brilliant to access everything we wanted. Would definitely stay again!

Liked: Friendly helpful staff, good location, good Wi-Fi

Disliked: Seems pretty much impossible to close room door without it banging loudly, therefore we were kept awake by people coming and going in the early hours of the morning on our first night. Also the fire alarm went off intermittently on our first night making it hard to sleep/relax.

Liked: This is a decent hostel, I have been to Dublin twice and spent time at Abigails both times. I had fond memories of it the first time so I stayed there again and it was just as I remembered it. The private bathrooms are very clean (with great showers!) and the common room is quite nice and social. The kitchen is fairly small but has everything you need. It is definitely an above average hostel but it is not amazing. It's a very plain hostel with no real character or charm but if that is not what you're after then its a good clean option in a great location that seems to attract a good crowd. All the beds have power points which is extremely helpful.

Disliked: The main thing I didn't like this time was the staff. A couple of the staff members were helpful, but the rest were terrible. It was as if they had their own little social clique behind the desk and asking a question or even getting your key was an inconvenience. It's a very plain hostel with no real character or charm but if that is not what you're after then its a good clean option in a great location that seems to attract a pretty good crowd.

Liked: Good location, nice atmosphere. The staff is really friendly and the free breakfast makes everything perfect! It was a nice staying.

Disliked: The room was a mess, but I'm not sure if it was the other guest's fault or if it was because there is no space for placing your stuff.

Liked: This hostel was in an amazing location! It was a block away from Temple Bar which meant that going out at night wasn't a hassle and it wasn't noisy on the street at night. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful!

Disliked: The breakfast was typical hostel food (cereal, toast, coffee and juice) and they would run out of clean dishes very quickly. Most guests were eating breakfast at 8 am so if you were there between 8 and 9 you usually had to wait for clean dishes.
