This is a good place to stay if you are a backpacker on a budget. The rooms are small and clean. The room I stayed in had two singles with ensuite shower and toilet. It's also located close to the main attractions in Dublin. The staff I dealt with were also friendly. However I would advise some caution when staying...

Where to begin! My sister and I were desperately wandering the streets of Dublin early on a Saturday morning, going from hostel to hostel because everything was booked. When we came to Avalon they didn't have the room but they told us to help ourselves to breakfast and wait to see if something opened up. Shortly after one of the...

The location of the hostel is very good. It's fairly close to the Temple Bar area, St. Stephen's Green and the Castle, which is brilliant. The only downside about the hostel aside from the noise (which you do expect in a hostel, but it really wasn't that bad at all), was the quality of the wifi. Maybe it was just...

From reading some of the 1 and 2 star reviews on here after I booked, I was worried I was going to be staying in a hovel. Nothing could be further from the truth. I was on my own, meeting up with friends for the Ireland-Scotland football international, so I booked a private room. €70, or £50 to me, for...

Stayed in 4 person room with en-suite for recent football trip. Hostel is in a good location - close to bars, restaurants and is an easy enough walk to the Temple Bar area. The area around the hostel seemed very safe. The room itself was small (not a complaint as we knew it would be this size but may be...

Thank you for taking the time to review us, its great your group enjoyed the trip to Dublin and Avalon House. Security passes are checked every night however if you use your keycard to gain access to the building this is also enough as only residents have these keys.

It is a hostel that is close to everything which is good, and the price is fair. The only thing I would say is that the lockers should be complimentary since there aren't any in the rooms, besides that everything is good about the hostel. Budget hostel but in a central location.

I travelled to Dublin on my own and found Avalon House to be a welcoming environment. For a backpackers, it is cheap but breakfast is included and the rooms are spacious plus staying in a room full of people I didn't know was actually fun and I felt quite safe. It's central in Dublin and I really enjoyed my stay...

Good staff and good breakfast. It could be a good choice if you do not mind the hard bed and some noise. Near a mall, the city's center and the bus and train station. Low price but an option in a city not so cheap.

We stayed here after finding the hotel we were planning on staying in was $245.00 per night. The Avalon was almost $200 cheaper for a private double room. The location was in walking distance from a beautiful park, bars, grocery stores, and a shopping mall. We felt safe in the neighborhood and at the hostel as 2 girls traveling alone....
