Liked: Despite its massive hotel-like quality, Avalon House does a pretty great job of keeping facilites clean and friendly. My bed was immaculately clean, as were the sheets. The bathroom is roomy, unisex, and has a lot if shower stalls. The staff tries to be helpful and the guests were all pleasant and polite. The location is strikes a perfect balance of being in walking distance but far fromk the craziness of Dublin night life. Overall, the hostel is well designed and higly functional.

Disliked: Would be nice to provide free locker/storage options.
