We stayed here on a Friday night at the beginning of July, after having stayed elsewhere in Ireland. We had originally booked a double ensuite room at Kinlay House but were later contacted & advised that our booking had been transferred to Avalon House as Kinlay was overbooked. Despite being a little further out we were happy to change. The hostel is in a good location on Aungier Street, surrounded by some nice bars & restaurants & a 5-10 min walk from Temple Bar.
We had a twin ensuite room that was on the top (4th floor). The room had bunkeds and a small kitchen area (cupboards, sink & 2 hobs – although nothing to cook with but imagine you could have borrowed from the kitchen downstairs). The room also had a balcony & ensuite toilet & shower. The shower was ok but like one at a swimming pool as you had to press the button every 9 seconds to keep the water flowing. It was pretty hot though so did the job. The hostel has everything you would need – a communal kitchen (noodles etc available to buy from reception although quite a few supermarkets nearby also), pool/games room, free wifi access & pcs in the lobby, big/small lockers for hire (€1 a day plus deposit) and a cheap café that serves good coffee & food. We also had breakfast included (served until 10am) but were so tired we didn’t bother. The only downside of here is that checkout is at 10am which we thought was a tad too early. All in all, this was a good base & would stay here again.
