I really liked the over head charging ports, staff was friendly, place was clean enough. Nothing to complain about!

I stayed at a female room and nobody could open the doors cause the lock was not working well, they changed the lock the next morning. The door from the shower fell down, a few hours latter there was a curtain there. They have their problems, but they fix them as soon as possible. The kitchen is open 24/7, that's great 'cause there is the place where the internet works best, so if you need you time to solve your problems on your notebook you always have a place to go no matter what time it is.

Abrahams Hostel was one of my favourite places to stay so far. The breakfast was excellent for a hostel.

You need to put instructions on how to turn the shower on in at least room 41.

Great place!!! I would recommend this hostel for people who are staying in Dublin. Staff was very helpful and very nice. They knew what they were doing and they knew the area very well. Have great tips and advice.

Great choice in Dublin. While not the cheapest hostel or the nearest to O'Connell St. and Centre City, for a slightly longer walk they provide everything you would need/want out of a hostel and do it well. They have maybe the best breakfast I've ever had in a hostel.

Unpleasant surprise: We had to pay to use internet on the computersin common area!!! The lady at the reception the first day was arrogant, however, the man the next day was ok. Toasters didnt work which was quite disturbing during breakfast because there was a line of people waiting for their toast ... No need to wash the dishes after the breakfast, thats nice. The dining area is too small, the kitchen as well. Wifi didnt work.

This was an average hostel located in an average place. The bathroom in the 4-bed room I had was comically small and just unacceptable. My other big issue with this place was the lack of lockers in the rooms but rather pay as you go lockers on the main floor, this is a big issue for me. Security for your things should not be a profit center, as it really just hides the true cost to stay there and have your things secure.

I spent only one night and find it acceptable but there is something to improve about the rooms of multiple beds. It would be good to label the keys to the beds. When I was there, a guy who booked and came in the same night was forced to move twice because he occupied unknowingly beds occupied by people who were sojourning before him. They were not in at the arrival of the new mate and they had to ask him to move. It could be better to label the room 17 keys for example 17a, 17b,...17h.

I was very disappointed with unreliable wifi. You have to go to lobby areas for wifi, and even then it kept going down. You should be honest and inform potential customers of the actual situation. The staff was okay, but one in particular was very rude; the staff as a whole did not seem well trained or guided. The facilities were okay, and there's NO elevators! That should also be mentioned to potential customers, so 3 small women aren't carrying 50lb luggage to the top floor without help.

Good location, close to O' Connell street and the bus station. Friendly staff. Breakfast was ok (could improve a little bit. WIFI was a little slow or got disconnected when the hostel was crowded. Overall it was a pleasent stay.

The first time we stayed in the room it smelled like sweating feet. The toilet didn't flush. The tap leaked.There was only an open litter bin and i looked directly into used lady sanitary equipment, not nice. The windows were above the beds, so you should stand on (someone else) bed to open it, what was quite hard to do. The showers where full of shampoo and shower gel bottles what doesn't look really clean and pleasant. The second time, the toilet did flush again, but the tap still leaked.

Nice location, great free all you can eat breakfast, and many spots to hang around with free wifi.

The building is a bit old. Our room was very musty and hot, and the small window in the room didn't allow much air in. However, the hostel staff are very helpful, and the location is pretty good.
