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

Liked: perfect location. easy to get there and get around. secure. nice neighbourhood. a lot of bars and pubs and restaurants. close to trinity college, temple bars, and almost every attraction!!! room is clean. shower is good. room is a bit small but enough! wifi and breakfast included! staff is helpful and friendly :)

Disliked: nothing really. maybe the breakfast should be offered longer, as it closes at 10 am, we need to get up quite early for it and you know it is kinda hard to do when you drank waaay too much Guinness the night before. :P

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: 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
