It would be great if the hostel features some activities like quiz, go all together to a pub, DVD night, dinner in the kitchen all together, ... activities in order to approximate customers. It would be great if the hostel features a telephone to let customers receive phone calls.

We only stayed at Abraham house for two nights so its hard to say much. The location is perfect, the staff was really nice and was able to tell us information about all trips we could enjoy. Breakfast was continental breakfast which only consisted of bread and jam. A toaster would have been nice and maybe more varieties of jam. We just saw orange jam. Dublin is an expensive city but seeing the price for those two nights the value for that money was good. Its still a nice hostel :-)

10-15minutes walk to the centre of Dublin and a Tesco near by. Supplied sheets and a free breakfast. Breakfast was bread, boiled eggs, canned fruit, cereal, coffee and tea. But whenever you leave/enter the building you give the key to the front desk, which would be fine, if there wasn't a line when you wanted to get the key to your room.Also, there were alot of families/school kids at the hostel. Wasn't easy to meet other travelers. Good for a money though,

We ended up staying here because other places didn't let us book less than 3 days during a weekend, but we were not disappointed. Good location and friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Thanks!

The staff here were extremely friendly and the location is great - a short walk to Temple Bar area. However, I booked here for a few euros more per night so my 3 friends and I could be in the same room - but we had to be split up the first night. There was a huge puddle outside our bathroom that did not dry and it smelled strongly of mildew. There is no housekeeping so you need to bring back the bed linens. I guess the above is common in most hostels, but I've paid less for better facilities.

3rd time at Abraham's with a group of students . I used to love the place but this year our food was constantly stolen from cupboards and fridges. Hard luck when you have to cook for 20 people. A coat disappeared from a bedroom too. Life must be getting harder in Dublin. The staff at the desk is extremely helpful and always very friendly. Rather noise on Friday night.

the washbasin is in the dormitory (for 12 people), so you have to wash yourself while 11 people are watching. the walls are very thin, so during the night you can hear everyone speaking in the staircase. guests in the dormitory were respectless and very loud all night long. only 1 very small shower room for 12 people (without washbasin, washbasin is in the dormitory). there is no possibility to lock the luggage in a drawer under the bed. all in all, hostel is loud and mainly for party people

Bathroom... OMG... it has its high time about 50 years ago. No exaggerating. And breakfast? Jam, yogurt, toasts and hard boiled egg... what cuisine was it? Seriously, if the staff was not so absolutely great and nice and helpful... Im moving out after first night.

It was like being in a rabbit warren, room was at the end of the building Breakfast was inadequate and the staff treated me like a child,they were very inflexible about the last night which I paid for and couldn't stay in due to my flight leaving the following morning.The staff seemed to think it was my job to bring down dirty linen too.Not impressive!

Security was good, all night reception was good. The beds had headboards with reading lights and you could plug a USB right into it. The bathroom was absolutely disgusting, very tiny and covered in mould and you could hardly breathe in it.

The bathrooms were very poorly equipped and tiny. There was mould around the window and the shower. The water in the shower was boiling hot, whether you turned it on hot or cold. Impossible to have a shower in the end...
