Stayed here while there for a weekend when the six nations was on. Excellent location , near to temple bar. Excellent service , girls behind desk sorted out a taxi for us to go to the sail port on the sunday. One of the cleanest hostels I've ever stayed in - good shower.Good selection for breakfast aswell.
Honestly have nothing bad to say. Spacious rooms, comfy beds, private bathroom and shower. The location is AMAZING and the stuff is the best I’ve ever met! An absolute recommendation for business and leisure!
I stayed at abigails hostel with a friend for 4 nights in a 8 bed mixed dorm. The last night we had some issues and last minute requested from the staff if they had any other available rooms. The staff at the counter were very helpful and pleasant and moved us and also assisted in organizing a taxi to the airport. The rooms are clean and basic, the location is great. For a bed and place to stay I would recommend Abigails. Thank you to all the staff at Abigails, you made our stay great.
We’re 2 females visiting Dublin for the weekend & booked Abigails for 1 night as it was in a great location (that’s the 1 star!) and price was reasonable compared to everywhere else. Staff were reluctant to help, not particularly welcoming or friendly, one gentleman on reception was extremely rude to us & argumentative when we asked him why the room was still occupied. The beds were unmade & dirty from last lot of guests. The cleaner did get round to our room but made 1 bed & left the bedding for the other for me to do my own! Bathroom was filthy. I dreaded getting a shower as the bottom of the bath was disgusting with muck. Sink was the same. Room was fairly spacious though & we used the free safes. All through the night people were knocking on doors, chatting loudly & slamming doors. I slept ok ear plugs too but got woken half a dozen times still. Breakfast was so so but I brought my own as they didn’t provide vegan milks, just cows milk so no good if you’ve an allergy to dairy like me. Rest was yoghurt, eggs, scones, muffins, toast, so not much if you’re dairy intolerant......never known anywhere not have a better alternative! Staff questioned me when I went to use the kitchen, it was blocked off with a trolley, defeats the point of a hostel where you can use the kitchen facilities. Shared areas were well worn & not exactly somewhere you’d go to socialise & meet fellow travellers. All in all it was pretty crap with rude staff. …
We needed a place to stay in Dublin and Hostel never deceived me. It was the first time for Abigails Hostel and it is very nice, the Hostel in general and the room are cleaned and little bonus, we can drop our luggage at the Hostel before taking our room.
