Liked: Location and price good

Disliked: Not the hostel's fault but some drunken jokers returned to the dorm at 4am and when I got up I couldnt find my trainers anywhere. Luckily I had other footwear with me. Had I been checking out that morning I would have been throwing the contents of all bags in the dorm onto the floor to find my footwear. Got back to the dorm that evening and my trainers had returned. I assumed that in the sober light of day someone decided that nicking them was a bad idea seeing as nobody else in the dorm had checked out that day.

Liked: Great location. ~6 min walk from Dublin Tourism Center on Suffolk St where all the tours leave in the morning and right next to Supervalu so you can get breakfast or a late night snack conveniently. Storage lockers and safety deposit boxes available for a fee. There is housekeeping everyday to clean the bathrooms and take out the trash in the rooms. There is an elevator if you have heavy luggage.

Disliked: You have to pay for the storage lockers and safety deposit boxes.

Liked: I traveled with a friend of mine, and we lived in a room with 12 other people. You'd think this would feel crowded, but it really didn't! The bed was comfortable, two toilets and showers in the room, and every single person we got to talking to were really nice! The employees are very friendly and helps you whenever you need it. They really make you feel welcome and in good hands. The location is also good, very close to everything (you can walk anywhere!) and right next to both Temple bar! The breakfast was pretty plain, with chocolate cereal, light bread with jam, orange juice and some fruit. I would recommend Abigail's to anyone who would travel to Dublin, if t is for a couple of days, or more, take the trip! If I ever go back, I will definetly stay here again!
