My review regard the single room with private bathroom: The place is not to bad; suggested if you wanna travel with budget because the location is in the very city center; people who works there are very friendly and problem solver. Very young people choose this accomodation because of the budget price but if you don't have to stay long... More

I was told at the first time that it was cold but I didn't expect it woudl be that cold! The first night I couldn't sleep at all because even the blankets were freezing. I asked what happened but they "didn't know". The next days even though they gave me a heater it was still cold. It is not really... More

Stayed in Dublin two nights, city itself is great, full of energy and Avalon is very close to centre of it. Fortunately that's the only advantage of Avalon, place is not so clean, twin room was freezing in January, put heating system just for few hours during night. Cold bathroom as well. Breakfast is just a joke, thanks to Bald... More

We were supposed to stay in the Avalon House for about a week, but after 3-4 days we realized it's just not for us. The room we had was incredibly small (one of the smallest i've been to), the internet didn't work anywhere other than the reception, the breakfast was poor and un-satisfying and overall the place didn't feel very...

Really enjoyed our stay here, they had some excellent suggestions for what to do and where to eat in the city. Very conveniently located in the city and was a great value for anyone trying to save money. Rooms not huge but served their purpose well.

The location of the Avalon house was very nice, however, they didn't turn on the heat in the middle of winter. It happens to rain a lot in Dublin and when you are wet, you would like to come back to a warm place. There was also a crack in the window with a cold draft constantly coming through. The... More

For me Avalon House Hostel was perfect. It's near centre, the way to the hostel is easy and I enjoyed to walk to the centre. Staff in the hostel was friendly and if you need any help, they will help. There is free walking tour in the hostel if you want to explore Dublin with group but we didn't take... More

Beats an overpriced taxi. Stayed here after a night out. Good basic accommodation. Near to temple bar and George's St and all of the city centres nightlife. Four bed room was warms and quiet after everyone else had gone to bed. Easy check in and check out

I stayed at the hostel for the web summit in early November. The accommodation itself was not much to shout home about but I was incredibly impressed by the reception staff specifically the Czech guy who gave me really good tips about where to visit in Dublin. He was so warm and helpful. The staff is one reason I'd go... More
