Liked: Good location. Bit run down but the hostel had character. Services were generally good. Free internet and wi-fi was good.

Disliked: The room stank a bit of urine. Floorboards could be replaced. Bathrooms were a bit old but did the job.

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.

Liked: The best coffee in Europe at the cafe attached to the hostel. Comfortable, great room. Friendly staff. Excellent cafe.

Disliked: It's unfortunate but the toilets were filthy the entire time we were there. As was the kitchen. The kitchen is huge with 3 or 4 separate sinks and stove tops. It should be up to guests to clean up after themselves but it appeared that no one cared, and not even the staff. The bathrooms were the issue though!!

Liked: Nice atmosphere, helpful staff.

Disliked: Very creaky beds. If I were the kind of person to complain about privelages and luxuries the hostel is under no obligation to offer, I would say the internet was a bit spotty and the free breakfast was very basic, but I'm not that kind of person!

Liked: Hostel was conveniently located near the town center. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. On the day we were leaving, we woke up at around 7am for breakfast but the kitchen wasn't opened yet. We had to catch a train ride and so a request was made to the staff to open it for us first. The staff who did so was very friendly even though the kitchen wasn't supposed to be open until 730am.

Disliked: We were staying in a private twin room and we felt that the room was a bit too small. There
