Beds are dirty, toilet is not working probably. The staff locked themselves into our room early in the morning to see if a colleague was in there. They opened our windows and left the door open into out belongings while we were out and explained that it was because of renovation purposes???
Abraham’s Hostel is a lovely place to stay, it’s a twenty minute walk from several places to visit, shop, and eat. They staff was very friendly and helped us find some of the best places for a pint and a bowl of stew. The only reason this was not an excellent stay is the inconvenience of some remodeling, which I’m sure will only serve to make the place better in the future, and the thinness of the windows. You could hear all the street side conversations and even footfalls of people at 2am. Not the hostels fault for loud road noises but just be prepared to bring some earplugs!
This hostel was very affordable for a mixed dorm bed. It was about fifteen min walk from the bars. I did a pub crawl which I enjoyed. I got to meet lots of other travelers. I only stayed here one night.
Great accommodation, great location, we came with a car but only circulated by foot. Special thanks for Kitty from the staff that has been a huge help in both her informations and her welcome, we wouldn't have appreciated our stay enough if not for her intels. Regards, the frenchies
I recently traveled to the United Kingdom and stayed in a variety of hostels, and this was by far the worst. Myself and 4 friends had opted for the 12 bed dorm, as it was a relatively decent cost in a good location. We arrived in the room, and were greeted with some unfriendly and mildly creepy other guests (which I understand, is out of the hostels control). The 12 bed dorm only had one shower and one toilet for 12 people, which is ridiculous. The showers were DISGUSTING-- hair all over the walls and floor, grime and dust in the faucets, and there were even dead bugs all over the ceiling. The beds themselves were fine, it was nice that they gave us our own clean linens upon arrival. There is a kitchen located in the basement of the hostel, which feels more like a dungeon than it does an area to socialize with other travelers. The people working at the front desk didn't even tell us about the kitchen when we arrived, so they know its not their nicest asset. Not to mention, the front desk staff was quite passive aggressive when we tried to book a tour with them, the young girl behind even trying to get us to sign up for the pub crawl to "make her look good" in exchange for her help booking a tour. like who tf do u think you are??? anyways. Basically, the only redeeming quality this hostel had was the location to the city center, and even though the city itself was a weird ass place, the proximity to other attractions and food in the area was pretty good. all in all not a great place to stay…
