Liked: The location was fine.

Disliked: I disliked the low amount of computers and computer lobby space available. Also- I would not recommend this hostel to travellers over the age of 30- it´s definitely a younger crowd of travellers.

Liked: Lots of international travelers. Free wi-fi and international phone calls (although there was only one phone). Convenient bistro next door so you can get a hot breakfast or good coffee/teas in the morning if you wanted to. Very friendly staff. Sinks located in each private room so you can get ready quicker in the morning.

Disliked: Free internet has a timer that is supposed to limit you to 20 minutes, but every computer must have a glitch because they cut out every 2 minutes so you can't do any significant work. Small.

Liked: The Large kitchen and dining room was very nice. Several people were able to cook at once.

Disliked: There was a loud echo in the pipes whenever the folks in the room next to me used the sink. They have the pushbutton style valves on all the faucets, and I think one of them shuts off the water too quickly the pressure causes a load bang and reverberation

Liked: The location is great! Staff are very helpful. Everything was clean.

Disliked: Could do with new mattress protectors on bed as the ones that were on the bed were very worn out. A piece of fruit with breakfast would be good.

Liked: In Avalon House one can find an easy going atmosphere and friendly staff. The living room is accessorized and there are always people playing table tennis, pool or just chatting on the sofa and listening the good music put up by the staff. Furthermore the hostel is in the very center of the city and easy to reach from the airport with the bus 16A (i appreciated the refund of the ticket offered by the hostel) or at anytime with an aircoach that picks you up in front of the hostel.

Disliked: Nothing remarkable that i disliked

Liked: We had excellent service and the room was value for money with a simple breakfast included. We liked the location as it was in the city but not directly in the night-life. We have stayed in places in Temple Bar before and couldn't get to sleep due to the noise outside until 5am.

Liked: I liked the location, the facilities that were available and it was a fun place to meet people.

Disliked: Everything was fine. The only thing I had a problem with was the friendliness of the staff. As helpful as they were whenever I needed anything, I thought they were not very friendly about it, in fact they were more friendly with the other tourists who spoke their native language (french). I would expect hostel staff to be a lot friendlier with people who are staying there, especially that people from all countries and walks of life will turn up.

Liked: There are free computer and internet can use and there 's a kitchen which is good. I lived in a single private room with a shared bathroom. The room is valuable for the cheap price and it's clean.

Disliked: The bed I slept is not comfortable caz it's not flat. it need to change to a new one. but it doesn't matter if you are too tired.
