I have stayed in Avalon hostel for five nights. Finding AH is extremely easy. It is situated on Aungier street. Bus 16 from Dublin airport will take one close to AH. Reception is open for 24/7 and they are very helpful. Rooms are cheap compare to other hostels, however weekend nights get crazy so if someone wants to stay on... More

A little context - before visiting I was imagining a pretty weird experience at this hostel based on the other reviews. I really don't understand the complaints! The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were adequate in size (we were in a four bed dorm). Beds were comfy and warm, although the radiator really blasted out heat. Better that... More

I recommend Avalan House because what you get for the price is quite fair. The dorms were clean and everything worked fine. The location is great, as it is just a 10 minutes walk to the city center. Also, the breakfast included is not bad (toast, cereal, coffee and tea) and keeps you going in a quite expensive city as... More

The hostel is in a great location, easy to walk anywhere and the local shops are open late and the streets really busy early evening. We had a twin room and shared bathrooms. The room looked fine until we tried to sleep in it. The heating felt like it was lumping out on full heat all night, had to get... More

We spent 4 days and got a double bed ensuite. I have traveled a lot in my life and stayed in from 9 euro student hostels in Rome to top notch hotels. But this hostel by far does not deserve its rating. It got 8,1 on hostelworld which makes me think that some of the reviews there are not genuine!... More

Stayed in this hostel October 2016 for two nights. Managed to get through the short stay but would not like to stay longer. Continental breakfast, included in the price you pay, consisted of cereal, bread, tea or coffee. Had a coffee then went out for breakfast. double room ensuite was tiny, freezing, but beds were comfy and clean. Went to... More

This place took minor annoyances to the next level. Seriously nothing in this hostel was easy or simple. I don't even know where to begin because everything is just not worth praising at all, don't stay here. The hostel itself has garbage wifi for such a massive place, it cuts out all the time, is sluggish, and has horrible range.... More

We arrived in Dublin at 6am. The hostel let us check our bags in lockers until check in time. We came back and had an easy check in. Didn't realize we had to pay for towels until early the next morning, so had to rush down to get some. 4 of our party shared a 4 bed room. It was... More

Very good avocado bread, pancakes, juice and coffee. Interiør below average but clean. It is also a hotel breakfast place so there are many people. Large portions an Quick service. Price was the Best of it all. Would visit again. Not for large groups.
