“Easy access to central Dublin”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

I have stayed here 3 times now (1 night each time). They have recently done up the place and put new signs out front. Its within 5 minutes walking from the Spire/ O'Connell street and very close to the bus station (Busaras) and the trail station.
Staff are very friendly and helpful and explain how the hostel works upon arrival. Room available to leave luggage and there is a safe area. Wifi is also available. Breakfast is included and basic.
The rooms are very clean (cleanest standard ive ever encountered at a hostel). Bathrooms are tiny but ensuite.
Beds are ok comfort wise. Your unlucky if you get a squeaky bed though.
WIll stay again.

Stayed here Last week on a Saturday night with a group of Friends,
The Hostel is very Central just a few minutes walk from O'Connell Street,
The Rooms are basic but clean and it is reasonably priced
especially for a Saturday night in the middle of summer,
There is a luggage room that you can store you luggage if you arrive early or
to store it the next day so you can explore Dublin or shop before you catch your bus.
The guys on reception were very nice and Friendly, Thanks Guys
I will be back again the next time i stay in Dublin.

Well I book one bed in a 4bedroom share flat and it has a one clean bathroom and also only thing you have to get is your bathing soap or shampoo because they provide hand wash soap only and in the room we had a small bedside table and one table lamp and junk beds in which you have to get the linen from the counter before you come to your bedroom and when you checkout you just have to bring your dirty linen to the laundry basket at the reception. They also provide a very healthy breakfast which I always go for and its free and the hostel is close to shops and bus stops and basically to all amenities. Thank you to the management of this hostel for your hospitality.

I stayed here for two nights with 7 other girls. We were on the top floor and the heat was almost unbearable, it was 18c outside. We had bunk beds which we had to make ourselves (not the actual beds, but the linen) and an en-suite which was convenient and it was not as dirty as other reviewers have made it out to be. There wasn't much choice at breakfast, most of it is basic toast or cereal and maybe some eggs with juice. The majority of the girls hadn't stayed at a hostel before and they all agreed that they would consider staying in a hostel again so it did make a good impression. The staff were friendly and the reception is open 24 hours so I did feel safe and secure and I didn't worry about any of my belongings being stolen. The people who were staying there weren't as friendly as I thought they would have been but the majority of them didn't speak English as a first language so this may have been a reason for lack of communication. The hostel is situated in a convenient place, close to the famous O'Connell Street and near Temple Bar and if you wanted to explore other places, there is always the hop on and hop off Dublin Bus Tour which is well worth the price. Overall, I would recommend this hostel to people who are travelling solo, backpacking or as a cheap weekend away with your friends. I don't know how much I payed for two nights stay but I do know that it cost us £50 overall for flights and accommodation so I'd say we got a fantastic deal. Thanks for your service Abraham House.

Room Tip: Top floors become very hot when the weather is warmer.

Was there for a conference in february. I arrived late evening. The place is clean and cosy. Room was good; i was supposed to have a single room but they gave me a family room so there was a lot of free space. Breakfast was very disappointed: just toast, butter, jam, milk and cereals some boiled eggs and nescafé coffé (really bad, at least some natural coffee would be a good idea). You get free wifi but in my room i had just some problems with the network (bad reception). They gave me a free towel at the reception. I didn't use the luggage room but they have safety lockers that you have to pay extra. Very secure place. there are a lot a cosy commun area places with sofas and small tables in all the building.

Room Tip: i didn't book by myself but i think you can have better value for the money somewhere else (it w...

My husband and two of our friends stayed in a four person room with private bathroom for one night. It was so disgusting we never took our shoes off and slept on the towels we had brought with us. The linen was never unfolded and no one dared take a shower in the dirt encrusted bathroom. The room smelled of urine and there was gum stuck to the bed frame that should have clearly been seen by housekeeping. Absolutely disgusting and would not recommend this to anyone. Do not waste your money.

Walking into this hostel I was surprised it had not been condemned. The stairs and floors felt like they would fall out beneath you at any moment. The hallways smelled like sweaty old socks. The entire building was loud and creeky. The worst part about it was our room was super hot and smelled like pee and the bathroom smelled like sewer gas. The shower and bathroom were covered in discussing black mold. The shower door was broken so water covered the bathroom floor after every shower. I felt like I was getting even more dirty when I took a shower here. The carpets and mattresses were stained and smelly. The breakfast isn't much unless you like warm yogurt and milk for some cereal. The staff however was friendly but I would never dream of coming back here since I was so discusted by everything about this place.
