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.
I stayed in an all female room for 3 throughout my trip to Ireland. Both rooms were OK with enough space. There are no bed assignment so you just choose the bed that’s available. Check in was ok but my only issue with the place was the staff. Most of them are pretty young and really not that friendly. Especially early mornings, you say good morning and they look at you funny and most of them look like they are pissed off at something. Overall it was a great stay because of location. Is close to pretty much everything including meet up locations for all kinds of tours. I would stay there again.
If you're just looking for a place to crash, Abigail's is a fine place to stay. It was clean, there was a kitchen and free breakfast, lockers, etc. As a solo traveler, I often look for hostels to have a welcoming, fun environment, such as a common area, walking tour, or bar. This hostel did not have any of these things and it was difficult to meet people. The clientele was also a bit older (50+) and there seemed to be many people staying here long-term. Nothing is wrong with this of course, but I was hoping to meet young, fellow travelers and did not meet many.
Expensive this time of year for what you get but close to everything you need . It is a hostel but our private room was ok but a little noisy as it is in the party district and it was Saturday night.Breakfast was ok but get in early before feeding time.
Stayed there in a three-guest room and appreciated how clean it was and we liked the key-pad safes available for each person in the room. We ended up only using one bed because our room had a bunk and a queen-size bed in it. Breakfast was good and the location was amazing. Glad to have a refrigerator to store food. Sorry to not have parking as local parking was about €35/day. Staff was very helpful
We stayed at Abigails Hostel for a three day stay in Dublin. Since we were a group of three, we were able to book a private room with our own washroom. The hostel is located in Temple Bar facing the river- it’s in a great location! Each morning, a typical hostel breakfast was included, which was nice. Wifi was also superb.
Second time I’ve been there and hostel is still a great place to be! Great location, great price and amazing staff!!! If you have big luggages they have a place to store it. Near temple bar and lots of shops and services.
Booked a room for me and two adult children and it's excellent. Managed to get a room for 3 with private bathroom ensuite for €305 For 3 nights. Light breakfast included and most important free Wi-Fi. It's a 2 minute walk to Temple Bar and Grafton Street and right on the river front. Yes there's no luxuries like toiletries or in room tea making but it's brilliantly placed in the centre of things. And it's not just for the young. I'm 51 and don't feel out if place in what is a back packer place. Yes there's noise, but so far nothing more than a hotel would get. There's a free to use kitchen, luggage stores and safes in rooms. You get bed linen and towels too. Beds are comfy with plenty of pillows. The bathrooms are dated but quite frankly ive stayed in hotels which are worse and twice the price. It's basic but comfortable but with Dublin right outside it's just a place to sleep. Love it.
I stayed at Abigails for 9 days on a solo trip. The manager and fellow employees were super helpful and friendly. I met many nice guests as well. I felt safe and comfortable staying there and would go back in a heartbeat! :)
