I loved this hostel. It was quiet when I was fresh off a plane and just needed a rest. It was loud when I was looking for fun, the staff were lovely, the curfew was enforced but wasn't suffocating. I absolutely recommend it.

The location is really good - less than 10 minute walk from Connolly Station and there's a bus stop to the airport literally right outside. Walking distance from everything in the city center. I was there in the major off-season (January) so I booked a 6-bed room but ended up having it to myself, which was nice. I imagine it...

The place is right in the center, and it is easy to walk to most of things you would like to see. However, you have to remember that it is a Hostel and not a Hotel. It is the small details like a noisy water system, neighbors coming late, and you wash your things after breakfast. But ... very central...

Good value for money and very convenient location. but this wasn't for me, the beds were uncomfortable and small, but the biggest downfall was breakfast... not a bad selection of what to eat, but with nowhere to sit was poor as it was so busy! also had a funny smell to the whole building which was off putting

I stay here regularly. The staff are friendly and helpful. The kitchen staff are superb. Place is always very clean and tidy. However the smell on the way into the kitchen isn't great. Very warm and safe place with a great breakfast free of charge. Would recommend.

I slept 4 nights in abrahams hostel. The staff is friendly. The room was very clean. I felt save with the front door always locked and there is another locked door after de reception. I was not worried at all. They offer lockers at great price for your luggages if you need to. Great stay!

Location is very good, just a 5 minute walk from O'Connell Street and the hostel is surrounded with many pubs, restaurants, shops and grocery stores. Getting to and from the airport is extremely easy; the bus stop is directly in front of the hostel entrance. The hostel itself is pretty decent, it's clean but nothing too fancy, and the wifi...

We stayed 2 nights in a 6 person room and one night in a 16 person room. The first one was quite small but if you just sleep there it's fine, it had it's own bathroom, the latter was quite big with two howers and two toilets. The sheets were unexpectedly clean and te bed was quite comfy. The breakfast...

Each time I stay at Abrahams I feel enchanted and I can’t say why. It goes beyond the lovely atmosphere, the walls decorated with paintings and happy colors, and plenty of tourists buzzing in the common rooms and through the corridors. It seems to me a living creature, not a hostel. The premises are big, with a number of rooms...
