Very good hostel. Friendly staff. Clean and cosy. Breakfast was excellent. The location is its most important asset. It's near the city centre, very close to the bus & train stations and the bus stop to and from the airport is right outside.

Abraham Hoise is a nice hostel but it really lacks a friendly atmosphere. There is no room to make yourself cosy and have a chat beside the kitchen in the basement and the reception hall which are both very busy. Also, you have to pay for the lockers and to have access to a computer.

I always like staying at Abraham House and have done many times over the past 25 years. It was just as good this time and the staff were very helpful apart from the overnight staff. While preparing for the early morning airport shuttle, the guy at the desk seemed miserable, unfriendly and unhelpful. He had the side hatch closed, which annoyed the shuttle driver. However, unfortunately I could only stay for one night on this occasion, so it might be unfair to judge.

Clean comfortable and quiet, while being only a short walk from the center of town. Great experience that I would readily recommend to others!

I would recommend staying at Abraham house. The rooms, bathroom and kitchen are kept clean. There is plugs, a light and USB charger at every bed which is really handy. The brekkie is decent, toast and cereal, the usual. The security is good but it's quite a process, you have to buzz to get into the building, then show a receipt to get your room key and then buzz to get into the part of the building with the rooms. It was a bit annoying when reception was busy. Overall it is a good hostel.

The hostel location etc was alright. Just the room. Need more cleaning although is not in a really bad state that is unlivable.

During our stay, in the first few hours, some pounds got lost from our backpack, which we noticed on the last day when we were about to head to UK. There were no locks provided, but one could buy quite a cheap lock from the poundshop nearby. The showers smelled like pee and the light in our other toilet did not work properly. Still, there was lot of space in the dorm and the location was superb! I would still recommend the hostel, especially because of the location!

A reasonable hostel close to the city centre and an easy walk to anywhere you'd like to go. Airport bus stops right outside the door, all the staff were friendly and helpful.

Abraham House felt pretty safe, and was located pretty close to a lot of major attractions in Dublin. You can walk pretty much anywhere within the city. The breakfast left a bit to be desired, but it was nice that sheets were provided. Rooms were small and a bit stuffy. Overall it felt decently clean. It was appreciated that bunk beds had individual sets of outlets and small reading lights.

I can really advise the Abrahams House. Location direct Dublin Centre with less than 2 minutes to go to the next bus station and less than 5 minutes to the next pub. The staff was very frendly and I had some very nice conversations with them.

The area the hostel is located, is perfect to do Dublin by walking. Every bed had a USB-power-station and a lamp. No dishes has been clean at the breakfast and all the doors has been sticky.

I liked that hostel, especially the rooms were great because u can charge ur phone on the bed like. The lobby just doesn't look good but the rest of this hostel is nice. :)

Hostel perfectly localized. Even though I visited Dublin for the first time I didn`t have any problem with finding the place. Staff was also super-friendly. And breakfast was awsome. I really recommend the 'Abraham`s house hostel'.

A lovely hostel just outside of the central hub of Dublin (about a 5-10 min walk fro O'Connell St). Location is good if you don't want to be in the middle of the tourist crush - depends on what you're looking for! The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the beds and rooms were clean and well-maintained. Be prepared for climbing a lot of stairs - you can go up four or five flights if you're up in one of the top rooms. Nice clean facilities en-suite. Great hostel, especially for the price!

Rather small room (5-bedroom), but clean, safe, excellent location and very nice breakfast included.

We loved the breakfasts - thanks! Misunderstanding regarding family in dormitory. Maybe it could be built into electronic booking that wrong booking is not allowed? Night staff was very helpful, but not day staff.
