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.

Liked: The location is good, it's in walking distance to all attractions, nightlife, shopping and the bus to the airport stops right outside. The hostel does free walking tours around Dublin and they have a pub crawl which would be good for people looking to meet others. There are nice common areas and a coffee shop within the building. There is free breakfast (though I missed this!)

Disliked: There was no locker inside the room. There was only 2 sockets in a 4 bedroom dorm. The dormroom was tiny!
