Liked: We stayed in a private quad with a private bathroom, and while the room was rather small, it did what it said on the tin. The hostel's location is idea for getting to and from the airport (bus stops outside - no16 bus), it's a short walk to Temple Bar etc, and you've got access to Wexford Street and Camden Street, which boast some cheap eats and bars.

Disliked: Small-ish rooms and a little run-down, but overall fine for a few nights.

Liked: Avalon House was very clean and comfortable. The unisex washrooms were nice and had plenty of showers. The room I stayed in was nice, offering comfortable beds. I was lucky to have been in a quiet room, so I had a nice stay. Breakfast is included, though it is limited to cereal and toasts.As far as hostels go, Avalon is pretty plain, but it has a great location near Temple Bar and St Stephen Green.
