The Avalon House has a good location and the staff is friendly. It provides Tablets for your personal use. But the Hostel is not nice. It is anonymous, not sociable. If you want the backpack Hostel feeling, try find something else. If you want to stay for yourself, go here. Definitely not worth the money, better than nothing.

My friend and I are on a two-month long Europe trip and this was our first stop. While we were here we enjoyed our stay, however after being to a few other hostels we've concluded that although it wasn't bad it wasn't particularly great either. There are no lockers in or anywhere in the room. This makes it a hassle...

Nice clean hostel, friendly staff - Location is great in heart of the city! Groovy Decor. Hostel also runs a free walking tour of dublin at 10:20 every morning but didnt get a chance to check it out and They also do a pubcrawl. Cafe linked to it where you can get a nice breakfast.

Great location, just 15/20 mins walk from the city centre. Hostel was very basic but clean and tidy, staff helpful and friendly and from all nationalities. really nice independent cafe attached. Breakfast basic, but did the job. Can rent storage/luggage space for €2 per day. As for the room itself, very basic but clean and comfortable! The shower was annoying...

Stayed one night for a concert in Dublin. No complaints whatsoever, perfect for what we wanted. The staff were very accommodating when we asked to all stay in the same room (4 bed). Free Wi-Fi in the room is a huge plus.

This friendly hostel has a cute cafe and tiny rooms that are comfy. Our private double had a sink. Despite a pretty scary elevator, the kitchen, cafe and the rest of the hostel were pefect for a quick stay and cheap eats. However, the hot water here is some eco-friendly nonsense (maybe solar, if I remember right). You press the...

This is a good place to stay if you are a backpacker on a budget. The rooms are small and clean. The room I stayed in had two singles with ensuite shower and toilet. It's also located close to the main attractions in Dublin. The staff I dealt with were also friendly. However I would advise some caution when staying...

Where to begin! My sister and I were desperately wandering the streets of Dublin early on a Saturday morning, going from hostel to hostel because everything was booked. When we came to Avalon they didn't have the room but they told us to help ourselves to breakfast and wait to see if something opened up. Shortly after one of the...

The location of the hostel is very good. It's fairly close to the Temple Bar area, St. Stephen's Green and the Castle, which is brilliant. The only downside about the hostel aside from the noise (which you do expect in a hostel, but it really wasn't that bad at all), was the quality of the wifi. Maybe it was just...
