Really close to city center. The only things that made this place at all negative were the other people in the room and the lack of free lockers. But I love the amount of plugs and there are a variety right above every bed. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall a good experience.
Really enjoyed my stay here. Most of the staff were very friendly. Bathrooms and rooms were a little dirty but not too bad. Outdoor terrace area was a good place to meet new people but closes at 930 due to being surrounded by rooms. Great location! I'd be happy to stay again sometime.
Location was good and staff were helpful for the most part, but some of them seemed not to know the city very well. They didn't know how walkable anything was, which isn't ideal for tourists travelling on a budget and didn't know much about the surrounding seaside towns. Nowhere to lock things up except day lockers that cost money.
Seemed like a good hostel, however we were in a 10 person room and the door squeaked loudly whenever anyone walked in. Ended up continued woken up by the sound when people arrived and exited. Also the noise of squeaky bunks and snoring also contributed to both us only getting about 3 hours sleep during the night. Take care booking at Abrahams hostel.
I was blown away by this hostel. It was a wonderful experience! My only grievance was the ad on hostel world claims the hostel is 20 min from the Dublin airport - maybe for someone with a car! Unfortunately I didn't realize it would be a 45-1 hour long bus ride! That would be great info to have online. However, the stay was worth the travel :]
The showers were a little grimy and there's no bed numbering system which makes arriving late and trying to find a bed a bit difficult. Plus no lockers. But each bed has its own outlet and bed lamp which is awesome
. Easily booked a bed in a 6 room dorm and was very happy with my experience. The staff was very helpful and friendly - as were the people staying in the dorm - the rooms were very clean, good shower pressure, and one of the better hostel breakfasts I've had. My only qualm was the amount of security for luggage. There are no lockers in the rooms and several times I discovered tthe luggage storage room wide open. Overall, I wohls recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a base camp
This was our first hostel we stayed in ever. It was basic but had everything you needed. Breakfast was good. Lockers in the room would have been good. Location was good.
very big kitchen and dinning room.. great breakfast. cleanness acceptable. facilities: luggage room available if you need to leave after check out time, internet point 4 eu / h., but outside is cheaper. beds with usb slots, plugs and lights and luggage box. very confortable beds.
Everything was good except in there was mould in the bathroom ceiling which was clear that it was due to poor ventilation in bathroom. Another thing with the bathroom was we asked how often it was cleaned and they responded everyday, which was not the case.
For the price it's a good hostel, if you're looking for something cheaper this is it Nice staff, pretty good location, really good free breakfast, and an ok common room I do recommend this hostel if you're on a budget
We stay in this hostel the max of days (14 nights). It was a room for 10 people and still the service and our stay was excellent. Perfect location, and a great kitchen with an excellent breakfast service.
I stayed in a 10-12 person dorm, there was one TINY bathroom that wasn't very nice.. It was really hot in the room and the wifi was crappy. I wasn't going to write this review because I thought that it was perhaps just the standard in Dublin. Then I stayed at another hostel (same rating?!) and the quality was a million times better. The staff are lovely and they have good security, free breakfast which is great, but you can also find that at other hostels that are nicer at the same price.
Amazing location, right in the center of town. Also, great breakfast selection in the mornings. Staff was always very kind and helpful.
it was to stay there. the location is perfect

Security was a little lacking, they would just hand keys over to anybody who said their room number, as opposed to requiring to see the security slip they gave us at check in. Other than that this hostel was amazing! Very good value for the money, it was clean and spacious, and the breakfast was great! Would highly recommend this hostel to anybody staying in Dublin, that wants to be in a good convenient location without being in the major hustle and bustle!
Great hostel! The only negative was that the room was like a sauna, they need to turn down the heating in the rooms!
The beds are really nice. They have two or three chargers above as well as a shelf for storage and individual reading lamps. There's no really secure place to store your valuables, but everything else about the facility is nice. The breakfast was big and tasty and the staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. The next day we had to relocate to Isaac's Hostel (unfortunately) down the road for lack of beds at Abraham's, and the difference was night and day.
The hostel was in a great location as far as places in Dublin go. Super easy to get to. All the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly.
