Liked: Basic amenities but location is great, really near to the Spire and all major attractions

Disliked: Cleanliness of the dorms..I slept in a 10-bedded dorm, but the rubbish in the room smelt bad as it has not been collected for days! Toilet paper are insufficient and the bunk bed creaked!

Liked: Well located close to the main areas of interest of Dublin. The 747 bus from the airport stops literally in front of the main entrance. Atmosphere is excellent and it is an ideal place for meeting people coming from all around the world.

Disliked: The cooking area in the kitchen is too small, and the safes for storing valuable, albeit existing are just not numerous enough.

Liked: It was a great to stay for a few days in Abraham House! Location is great, you can get everywhere by walk. Roommates were very kind and the funny guy in the reception was super nice. The matrace was better than usual in hostel of this kind! I hope I´ll come back one day :)

Disliked: I disliked only one thing - I totaly missed the plug in the bathroom... but it´s bagatelle.

Liked: The front desk staff was great. I really liked the kitchen facilities and it felt like being in a hotel room since it was ensuite. It was totally worth the money, since it was so cheap.

Disliked: It was really big, so it was a challenge to meet people.

Liked: I fully recommended Abraham House if you are looking for a budget place to stay in the city central of Dublin. The location is very central in the city, just few minutes walk from the Dublin Spike. There are bus stops just around the corner for buses that directly to airport (bus 41a /16). The staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The beds are very cozy and comfortable. There is even breakfast provided to give you an energetic start in the day.

Disliked: I am very happy for what I get with the money I paid. No complain at all though the free wifi is only working in the lounge area but not in room. But I tried in the lounge area but still not able to get connected. However, there are computers available for internet in the lounge area but you need to pay for it.

Liked: Liked the security of turning my key in when I left and the 24 hour friendly and awesome reception. Rooms and bathrooms were very clean always had hot water. Common areas were alright and they had free wifi. Pretty much everything is walking distance.

Disliked: Breakfast was pretty lame, canned fruit and toast and hard boiled eggs. 3 computers is not enough, bring your own to use wifi.

Liked: The location was good, the orange walls very easy to the eye, the heating system was decent.

Disliked: The bathroom door was missing the lock making #2 uncomfortable for the other guests, if you had beans for lunch. The beds were a bit uncomfortable, the mattress too thin and converging toward center, not to mention thick black hair on the sheets.

Liked: The hostel is right next to the bus stop, and free breakfast was good.

Disliked: The common room is tiny and there's not much of a social vibe so it's hard to meet people. And it's about 15 min walk from Temple bar.

Disliked: unfortunately I could not go online to study and contact my friends over the weekend but that just means more time to explore dublin =]
