"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: Breakfast is included, which is always a bonus. Also liked that you had to show a security pass to get in.

Disliked: Ventilation wasn't the best in the rooms, so they got very hot and stuffy. Other than that, there was nothing I disliked.

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!

Disliked: Maja Eidsør left no negative feedback.

Liked: Quiet and warm bedroom (even they are in central location). Good and free wifi IN BEDROOM (if knew it before, I had bring my laptop w/ me). Hair dryer in bathroom (very convenient). Hot water 24/24. Good view from my room (river at night was so nice). Good lobby with big sofa and flat screen. Printer was equipped with computer. Helpful staffs. Actually there was a mistake in my receipt due to computer, and they patiently fixed it for me. Good buffet breakfast (toast, egg, fruit, chocolate cereal are my favourite) and always be served very early (from 7:05 or 7:10, instead of 7:30).

Disliked: Small room (it was fine for me). Bathroom was not cleaned in the morning. Only 2 sockets in room, then you might need to bring extension plug if your bed is far away from them.
