Staying at Abigail's was great. Awesome location, met some awesome people, and staff was knowledgable and gave great recommendations! Even managed to get a free burger on recommendation from one of the guys at the front desk! Facilities are a little dated, but overall not too bad! Great stay in Dublin and Abigail's made it that much better!

Everything was super fine! Fine room and excellent placing, both room and hostel! Nice staff and many choices for breakfast. There was a good security at the hostel, so you felt safe and relaxed the whole time. I would definitely recommend it for others - good place for a good price

I left breakfast with a full stomach everyday! Highly recommend this hostel to anyone and I will be staying here if I come back again. One minor downside is the room got quite warm at...

I've travelled many places before, but have never have stayed in a hostel - this was a great place for my first time. The guys in particular at the reception desk were super helpful and very friendly. The rooms were decently clean, although the only complaint I have would be that they should provide two towels instead of one -...

My wife and I booked a night at the hostel two months in advance. I was charged a fee to reserve, which was paid. We arrive at the hostel to find our reservation was cancelled. I received no advance notice of this. I had to scramble at the last minute in peak season to find a new place to stay....

Hi ScottW, I understand how frustrating a situation this was but you have to appreciate that we didn't cancel the booking, it was cancelled by the website which you made the booking through. We did explain this to you at the time and also that as we didn't take the deposit, the website did, we could not refund it. We...

The best hostel I have ever stayed at (albeit I have only stayed at a handful of them), but I will stay again for sure! With brilliant value for money we secured beds in a 6 person dorm for around £20 a night, which included breakfast (cereals, toasts, eggs, fruit and yogurt - teas & coffees etc) which was great...

My girlfriend and I booked a private room for one night. Upon arrival we checked in which only took about 4 minutes. We were informed wifi might be spotty in our room, but we were lucky enough to have it work in our room. Breakfast in included which is nice, but we didn't take advantage. The rooms were clean and...

Stayed 4 nights in a 3 bed woman dorm which was just fine. The room was clean, and my bed was comfortable. Breakfast was typical hostel food, toast or bread with butter and jam, cereal, boiled egg, juice tea, coffee. The staff was really helpful and very friendly. I would really recommended staying here!

Location is very good, right in the centre close to bars and shops. Stayed in a 12 bed mixed dorm which was fine, apart from the only way to regulate the temperature in the room was to have the windows open. We stayed on a very hot evening and our room was next to the main road outside which meant...

My two girlfriends and I were travelling Europe for our first time together. We knew a good way to save on costs was to stay in hostels rather than hotels, but we were skeptical to say the least. Being from the Midwest, we were under the [FALSE] belief that hostels were dirty, scary places where serial killers lurked. (I think...
