I needed to go to Dublin at short notice and all the hotels were booked out, All Ireland GAA semi-final. So, I booked the Avalon, €20 for a bed in a 4 bed room and free breakfast. Look, its Ok and for €20 what more can you ask for. The place is clean and the breakfast is OK. Free computer... More

Stayed here cause there wasnt room elsewhere. Facilities are fine and location is good but it doesnt seem like the staff knows much about dublin, they couldn't give recommendations for anything to eat/do. There isnt much of an ambience either, and there isnt any hostel bar, feels more like a hotel than a hostel, a bit tricky to meet people.

The location of the hostel is very appreciable: basically go everywhere within 20mns. The staff is ok. The rooms are very small, quite noisy (from the street and the rest of the building) and the shared bathrooms extremely simple and cold even in August. It's very difficult to enjoy the breakfast and to make your way in the overcrowded breakfast... More

Paid 50 euro for a shared room- top bunk. I am not 25 so this was an issue. Airport service they offer didn't bother to drop us off at the correct terminal . If I had paid less I would haven given a better rating- but if you have the extra 50 euro, get a hotel

My Dad and I stayed here for a couple days while in Dublin. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The beds were setup a little strange which made it tough to get on the top bunk. It was nice to have a bathroom in our room in case you have to get up in the night. They could install... More

Spent 2 nights from 21st August 2014 with my daughter. We had a private room with 2 single beds. Right near to The Temple Bar area and walking distance for all the attractions! Great staff on reception and check in was easy and fast! There's storage for your bags when you leave and nothing is to much trouble. Breakfast was... More

Me and my cousin arrived in Dublin and went there even without having booked before. The price is cheap, we paid 16 euros/night in common dorms. The beds were clean and rather comfortable. The staff was really nice and helpful, giving us some indications about the good spots and what to do at night for instance. The breakfast was included... More

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. Check-in and check-out were done very quickly even though we were there at a busy time. It wasn't too loud at night and beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were spotless and there was plenty of toilets and showers, no need to queue. The free breakfast was simple but wasn't expecting much more. The... More

This hostel was super cheap but such an amazing atmosphere to be in. I was in the Avalon Room (24 beds) with 2 other of my friends. We arrived in Dublin at 6 am - obviously too early to check in but reception let us pay just not receive keys and let us join in for breakie at 7. Super... More
