I needed to stay in the hostel for a few days while I was looking for a permanent place, on the 3rd day of my stay my bed was done, which I truly appreciated, however the make took my stuff out of the bed and laid over the window mantelpiece, half of my stuff was on the edge of it....

Hello, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Although I appreciate you are upset we moved your belongings, this is something we have to do in order to dress your bed with clean sheets, I have noted on your file for future reference if there is something on your bed it will not be dressed unless requested....

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...

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...

Hello, Thank you so much for the lovely review, we do get the odd review where people are perhaps expecting a Hotel and not a Holiday hostel we pride ourselves on friendly service and cleanliness to the best of our ability so thank you again for appreciating :) Hope to see you back in 2017 Management and Team @ Avalon...

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...

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...

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!...

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...

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....
