Liked: close to our friends' lodgings, several bars and restaurants close by as well as joined to a cafe where you eat breakfast. free internet and computers a plus.

Disliked: cleanliness was an issue. Couldn't tell the last time someone washed the dorm room floor or hoovered the hallways. mattresses and pillows looked a bit sketch too. bunk beds sounded so creaky I thought they would fall on me

Liked: bathrooms on each floor had lots of showers, sinks and toilets.

Disliked: the floors generally didn't appear very clean - in the room it looked as if it had never been washed, grime and stains. Mattresses also could have been cleaner looking. Bunk beds sounded like they would collapse on top of the bottom person.

Liked: The location was great, the service was great, and the rooms were clean and private and it was really nice!

Disliked: When we were there, the bathroom on our floor and the floor below us was broken so every time we wanted to use the bathroom we had to go down or up another floor. Other than that, nothing!

Liked: Almost everything.

Disliked: I didn't dislike anything, but I'd find it a bit more comfortable if the mattresses weren't so soft (like the pillows) and the carpet were cleaner... Other than that my stay was pretty satisfactory.

29 August 2011

Liked: It's facilities on the ground floor looked friendly

Disliked: It's facilities on the ground floor were open all night. On the first floor not only did you hear the screaming of the Italian girls racing unchecked around the corridors but also everyone on the ground floor and the music on the ground floor. And the people clustered around the entrance drinking all night. If you would like a nights sleep this is not a good place to stay as it's really really noisy. I think you book a hostel for the cheap bed and then go out to the bar so wouldn't recommend staying here if you are here to see Dunlin and so want to get up in the morning and actually go out!

Liked: The staff at Avalon House were really helpful and friendly. They did not treat us as "just another customer", but as people they really wanted to ensure had the best time on their trip.

Disliked: I would not recommend this Hostle for people who are travelling with a family. We did hear people making noise throughout the night, but being young we expected it, and were okay with it.
