"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 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.

Liked: Skype "Feather" Phone was very nice, basically all rules seems to be based on common grounds for being togehter rather than from an authoritative point of view. Was like all pulling together to make the experience the best, seems to work great. Also, reducing costs of maintenance, administration etc. by using unisex washroms, toilets, guestrooms etc. was no problem at all. And all that for a very reasonable price!

Disliked: Nothing so far!

Liked: Location! 5 minutes away from temple bar area and near mayor shopping area and lots of pubs. Nice people at the room, every night we had a cool party in the room, guess it would be bad if you want to sleep....

Disliked: The internet was kinda sloooooooow, it was impossible to make skype calls sometimes. Breakfast was simple, oatmeal, milk, orange juice but hey it was free!!! Dont know why but even thought its 6am you can hear lots of music!!! but when you go out to find the party nobody is playing anything, weird.

Liked: Inexpensive place to stay, also attached to a cafe with good coffee

Disliked: The rooms are very small, and have about twice as many beds as you would normally find in a room. Very uncomfortable beds, at 6 feet tall, the beds were too short. While not far from the main attractions, it is a good 15-20 minute walk to the Temple Bar area. They seemed to mostly host groups of travelers, making a pour atmosphere for meeting others.

Liked: Really easy to get to; bus stop is just across the road. Also refunded our bus tickets. The staff were very helpful. The breakfast was good. Location was also really convenient for the price, everything is walking distance even the Guinness factory. Good, friendly atmosphere.

Disliked: There is a large window above every door that lets a lot of light in the room at night - take an eyemask with you! The room stays completely light all night because the lights in the corridor stay on which is really annoying!
