Liked: We stayed in a private quad with a private bathroom, and while the room was rather small, it did what it said on the tin. The hostel's location is idea for getting to and from the airport (bus stops outside - no16 bus), it's a short walk to Temple Bar etc, and you've got access to Wexford Street and Camden Street, which boast some cheap eats and bars.

Disliked: Small-ish rooms and a little run-down, but overall fine for a few nights.

Liked: 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 room, so I had a nice stay. Breakfast is included, though it is limited to cereal and toasts. As far as hostels go, Avalon is pretty plain, but it has a great location near Temple Bar and St Stephen Green.

Disliked: Christopher left no negative feedback.

Liked: The location is good, it's in walking distance to all attractions, nightlife, shopping and the bus to the airport stops right outside. The hostel does free walking tours around Dublin and they have a pub crawl which would be good for people looking to meet others. There are nice common areas and a coffee shop within the building. There is free breakfast (though I missed this!)

Disliked: There was no locker inside the room. There was only 2 sockets in a 4 bedroom dorm. The dormroom was tiny!

16 August 2014 Carolyn would recommend this property

Liked: They had a cafe attached, which was nice if you missed breakfast.

Disliked: The rooms were small. There was barely any floor space for my stuff (plus eight other people) and I couldn't put it in my bed because I was on the top bunk. The bathroom was difficult to find. For two days I thought there was only one toilet on our side of the floor, but it turns out there were more up a few steps. Poorly labelled signs. The staff was rude, dismissive and generally unhelpful. I spoke with someone who was living/working there and he said that their towards him was similar and didn't change until he began working there.
