Stayed 2 nights in a private single. Fairly small room with ensuite. Shower was decent. Didn't have a towel for first night but cleaner left one in the morning. WiFi came and went in my room on 1st floor. Staff not bad from who I encountered. Brief welcome. Good security having to leave room key. Reception area could do with a spruce up and more atmosphere. For the price I paid I was a little disappointed as had much better elsewhere for cheaper.

Positive: good location, fun staff, generous breakfast.... Globally, I am satisfied. To improve: No hand soap in bathrooms, heater was fully ON all night next to an open window I had to change to another bed.

Room and bathroom were clean. Beds could be more comfy but not a problem at all. Not the best breakfast but nice enough. The place looks really old but did not have any problem at all. It's near everything you wanna see in Dublin, and Staff is always there.

Good hostel, close to the very city centre, I recommend it even the staff could have been a little bit nicer.

Loved this hostel, very close to the centre of Dublin. Me and two friends shared a three bed private ensuite room and it was like a hotel room! Fantastic :) Really friendly staff too and free brekkie!

The cleanliness of the room was horrible: there were black stains in the narrow shower that looked a lot like mould and the sink was clogged for a few days. My bed was given away DAYS before my check out day and even though some of my belongings lay on the bed. Every other day the breakfast wasn't on time but up 'till 20 minutes late, which is totally inconvenient if you didn't come as a tourist but to work in Dublin.

The only negative point is the door of the room, people left it opened because it was so noisy and hard to close it. Warm, clean, bathroom in the room, bed comfortable with own plugg and light.

I know it's not you I could blame for this nonetheless I felt like you should know about this: I booked a ladies bedroom (8 beds) and one of the girls brought a guy with her in the middle of the night, who stayed until morning.

Wifi is good, staff is helpful. Great location. rooms are not clean. I don't think our bathroom (for 12 people) got cleaned once during my stay. Towels left on the floor turned brown... Also 2 men shared a bed in the full room.. Staff was very helpful in getting me a new bed away from being a 3rd person in their... love life? kinda dirty. There was a chicken strip in one of the toilets for my whole trip...? Also several older people (past 40) were there. and sometimes it made me uncomfortable

The best thing about this hostel was it's facilities - each bed in my room had its own lamp and TWO outlets. They also had a substantial breakfast with quite a bit of selection. Lacking in community culture, but I would definitely stay here again.

No security of any kind in the 6-bed dorm I stayed in. Free luggage room downstairs, but had to pay for lockers. The hallways and rooms just smelled bad and stale, like they had never been cleaned. Witnessed staff being extremely rude to others about their misunderstanding of the room key handling. Maybe they should learn to explain it better. Common rooms are practically nonexistent, so don't come here looking to meet people. Breakfast was okay, but silverware was unbelievably dirty.

During my stay in Dublin I have been in different hostels, subject to availability. If I come back to Dublin then Abrahams Hostel will be my only choice. Nice, friendly and helpful staff.

I stayed in a mixed bedroom. It wouldn't hurt to have a bin in the bathroom since us girls sometimes need to use pads and tampons, and it's a bit annoying to have to take them with us outside where everyone can see. Also having a hanger in the shower to put the clothes would be fantastic. Some of the beds were really noisy (check them in case they're half broken) and the sockets didn't work everytime (and one of them fried my mp3, I had to buy a new one) Everything else was good
