Everything is great and I have no bad comments
Amazing location. Everything is very close and the price is reasonable. The staff is very approachable and friendly. I commend the cleanliness and orderliness of the hostel. I am very happy and I hope to come again.

Great Location -- Large Hostel with Lots of People
Amazing location in Dublin and very easily accessible to anywhere. This hostel is a huge hostel, similar to a hotel, and as such it lacks the personal touch that most good hostels have. Functionally, this hostel worked great, stayed in the 12 bed dorm which had two showers and two toilets which worked fine for me. No lockers in the rooms was a bit annoying, and having to pay for lockers in the main lobby was out of the question. Breakfast was basic but free. Wifi worked well for me as the dorm is on the first level (lobby on level 0). Secure hostel with keycards and having to show your card to reception to enter the stairwell. The hostel had not only solo travelers, but groups of travelers and families with kids as well, so it is not a party hostel by any means.

Best hostel in Dublin
Neighborhood (Dublin City Centre) -- The hostel is situated at a bus stop so there are a lot of people just standing in front of the door at times. It is relatively safe, though there are many beggars around the streets of the place. There is always a good number of people walking around the streets though. The Stay -- The beds are averagely comfortable, as are the pillows. The rooms sometimes smell funny, but most of the time it's alright (I've stayed there on multiple occasions because it's the nicest hostel in town). The Environment -- The place is rather comfortable and kept relatively clean. If you don't have an en suite bathroom, you might consider shower shoes. The people are friendly and very quick with their work and such. Amenities -- The kitchen is rather large with two ovens and a full-sized refrigerator. There are two sets of hobs and two sinks. The toilets are very clean, no matter en suite or not. The time I stayed in an en suite room, there were two shower closets and two wash closets. Service -- Access into the hostel was gained by buzzing in and out. After checking in, the reception has to buzz you into the staircase to the rooms, no guests are allowed to go in with you. They give you a weird looking key (it looks like a piece of plastic with hole punches in it) that you put into the slot to get into your room. There's only a limited number of keys per room, so you have to give it back to reception before you leave for the day. They also give you your bed linen to your unassigned bed. After you check out, they ask you to bring the linens back to the reception desk. There are plenty of fliers for day tours and things to do around Dublin. There's also a free walking tour whose representative comes into the hostel at a certain time each day. Breakfast is provided from 7:30-10:30. If you need to eat earlier, you can request ahead of time. Breakfast consists of hard boiled eggs, fruits (usually pears and/or peaches) in syrup, two cereals (corn flakes and cocoa rice crispies), white and brown bread with butter and strawberry jam, coffee and tea, yogurt.
Especially good for the hearing impaired.
Very friendly and courteous staff. Clean. College dorm atmosphere. My roommates were friendly and considerate but snored most of the night. The luck of the draw. Parking in the garage behind the hostel was 24 Euros per day -- more than the car rental. One doesn't need a car when staying at Abigails and Dublin has very few parking spaces. The owners could do some acoustical remediation in the halls if they wanted to. Seems to be quite the cash cow ...

Good location & cheap, but overrated.
I stayed here two nights. I was first placed into a really smelly room where the toilet was leaking and the carpet was wet, but luckily the guy at the desk was nice and moved me to a better room. The breakfast was pretty basic, toast, eggs and cereal. The wifi doesnt work past the second floor though so that was really annoying as I had to go downstairs any time i needed to use the internet. There's also no where to lock your things in your room so if you need to store valuables you have to pay for the lockers which cost about £1 for every 6 hours. Overall the location is really good for the price and the people I met were quite friendly, but definitely not deserving of an 8/10, more like a 6 or 7/10.

Good enough but noisy
This hostel was clean and in an excellent location, close to everything. The breakfast was good. the common areas felt a bit sterile and harsh. Our room was upstairs, large with a nice bathroom. But it was at the front of the building, facing the street with a bus stop right below. Buses and loud people coming and going all night kept me awake. We canceled our second day in search of a quiet night sleep.
