The hostel is in a good location however we were told to stay away from that area as it is a bit dodgy. It was fine for us though. Rooms are great-really big and clean. Had a few issues with our shower being blocked and water going everywhere. Staff were not overly helpful. Security is good. There is not much of a social/hang out area.

It wasn't a pleasant stay at the Hostel, sorry! We arrived in the morning and had to wait until 2 pm for check-in - that was absolutely no problem! We could store our luggage and visit town. But when we came back and we checked - in and came into the room, we had to recognise we had to remove bed sheets on our own from guests who already left. Absolutley inacceptable! Showering in the morning before leaving was impossible due to the missing lights in Romm 19!

we do apologise about the inconvience you experienced during your stay, unfortunately some guests decided to move beds during their stay and did not take their used linen from their previous beds causing problems for you on arrival, maintenance are on hand to replace any bulbs that need changing once reported to reception

The bathrooms were not in a good shape, the building is very old.

Really nice hostel to stay. One disadvantage is that they do not provide lockers in the rooms.

Fantastic stay overall. The only negative points I can make is the lack of security (no lockers to place personal belongings) and the lobby area was a little bit smelly. Very clean room and a very comfortable bed!

The room was tiny, and the bathroom even smaller. The staff was really nice and the location is great. I guess for a hostel it is good, but if you want a single room I wouldn' recommend it.

Good value for Dublin, but it depends who's in your dorm as to how noisy it is! Was good to have a bathroom in our dorm but sometimes you had to wait a while to use it, with other 10 girls in the room, or find another bathroom outside. Also you have to make your own bed unlike in other hostels in Dublin but it's cheaper, so fair enough. Very close to the bus and train station. Kitchen very busy at breakfast time but you get an egg which is filling compared to just jam at other hostels.

I would have given the Staff an "excellent" review, was it not for the rudeness of one member of staff, a girl with hardly any English who was clueless.

Night receptionist could have been more friendly and helpful. Seemed to pretend not to notice us and then belatedly he would press the buzzer to unlock the door to the bedrooms despite us presenting our passes clearly. This happened more than once. This minor gripe aside, Abraham House has served me and my friends very well during 6 or 7 stays dating back to 2006 and we will certainly be back again.

Satisfactory, it's really value for money.

I think that they should have more control who is entering in a hostel. They don't always ask for a piece of paper that the costumers must have.

It was the only hostel out of 7 other hostels we have stayed so far in Ireland where we had to change the sheets on our beds ourselves when we arrived and then again when we were leaving. The staff was very unfriendly at the reception. The internet in the common room (which wasn´t very big and nice by the way) was charged, again the first hostel I have ever been in where the internet wasn´ t free. Not enough facilities for the amount of people in this hostel. Not nice atmosphere at all.

We provide clean linen packs at reception for guests on arrival and ask them to return their linen to reception upon departure. We provide free WIFI internet access in all common areas in the building and also have paid internet terminals at reception

I´m quite flabbergasted with this hostel because I didn't expect much and had a pleasant experience there. Shower very hot and good pressure of water, breakfast one of the best and staffs all very helpful and kind. I stayed in a room with 16 beds and it was very organised with clean linens even though it was a little bit noisy due some group arriving late night.
