"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…"

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: Good location, nice café next doors. A lot of internet computers.

Disliked: Staff uninterested and not very helpful. No lockers in rooms, they charge you extra for a small locker by the reception for your valuables. Hostel layout not really promoting meeting other travellers.

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

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.
