Where do I start....The smell of stale cooking oil as soon as you walk through the door, the unhygienic and dirty carpets, the cramped rooms, lack of power points, the shared bathroom which seems like everyone on the 2nd and 3rd floors have to share and so very expensive €160 per night for 2 people. Avoid this place if at... More

Terrible environment, the room is too small and unhygienic, the staffs are also unhelpful, they don't know where the airport bus is, and then tell us the wrong station, luckily, we found the right station. How come the bath place have nth to cover?! Come if you want to see your friend nude or you want a erotic hotel with... More

People are really kind, the location is amazing, the rooms are really good. It was a really good experience. The breakfast was really good. It's one of the best hostels I've ever been. I'm totally coming back <3

It's dirty, it's noisy, it's expensive, the windows are broken, the bed is tiny, the walls are damp, the communal toilet (none in the room) is filthy. The only positives about this hotel is location and the very small shower has great hot water and good pressure. You can get so much better for the price you pay at Avondale.... More

Coming from a hospitality work background I can assure the staff in the Avondale Guesthouse, Dublin that I will never return. Myself and a friend stayed for one night and upon arrival to the hotel the receptionist did not even smile, look at us, just told us the price and then took our money off us. First impressions are always... More

Myself and a friend decided to stay here last Tuesday. We had walked in off the street and it was a busy evening I think there was a football match of some sort on. We were charged 90 euro for the room for the evening, there was only a shared bathroom and the actual condition of the place was unbelievably... More

Where to start... The first thing that hits you in Avondale House is the smell of stale fat. We had a shower cubicle in the room (I've been in a phonebox that was bigger) and a sink which had a missing handle on the hot tap, but the toilets were communal. Our window didn't close properly which meant the room... More

So first off this place was chosen for its price and location both of which were great. Slight mix up upon checking in stating they only had a double not a twin. Expressed not happy about this and thankfully the lady on the desk was able to accommodate us into a twin room. Shared bathroom meant toilets were down the... More
