The location is easily its best feature - it's 10 minutes to all the major tourist sights and a bunch of great restaurants. The bus to the airport also stops right outside. Inside, this place needs a lot of work. The wifi is slow and somewhat spotty. Outlets are scarce in rooms - mine had only 1 functional one between... More

We got in quite late at night and as soon as we tried to open the door our roommates were annoyed. We tried to be quiet but the rooms were tiny and doors were noisy. The showers and everything were clean enough, and there were more than enough common areas to relax. We used the laundry service and enjoyed sandwiches... More

The hostel is very cheap and clean. The location is also very very good. However, the bed is very uncomfortable and I found the rooms pretty small. If you intend to stay one night or you don't want to spend much money, that's an option. But if you prefer comfort over price, you can find way better places!

1. good location 4 minutes walk from temple bar 2. We got perfectly satisfying room, with basic En Suite 3. The breakfast is not good in my opinion, maybe OK for a hostel but i've been to other hostels around the world who succeeded way more in a basic breakfast. The dining room has also a public cafe with sorts... More

I always stay here when I'm in Dublin so might be a bit biased now but I'm always welcomed back even if it's been a few months the staff still remember me and greet me by my name and always sort out any issues that may arise like this time with a smelly guest in the room they evicted him... More

The room was really small, not-so-clean and smelly (that gross odor was in our noses for both the days!) The breakfast is poor and during the night the noise came from the corridor is annoying. It is too much expensive for the services they offer as well. The only good (great) thing, that deserve a 2 of 5 score, is... More

We were going to a concert and wanted somewhere cheap and central to sleep. This hostel was ideal. Very central and really clean and well run. The staff were helpful and friendly. Overall a good experience and would stay again and would recommend.

Stayed in the Avalon house on the 20th August, reception staff were very helpful, room was clean and warm, very secure as you needed a security pass to get back in late at night, all in all a good place to put your head down for a night in Dublin.

Thank John B
