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... More

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.... More

The Youth Hostel was in a good location. I liked having the use of a toaster for breakfast. It was noisy at 6am, there was a scuffle in one of the other dorms which woke us up, and whilst eating breakfast the light above us started leaking. It was generally fine, our room was an alright size and the food... More

I stayed at aavalon House for 2 nights. The only problem was the people in the room, they were really loud, even at 1 AM. The room was really small, I was in a 12 beds dorm. But the staff are very friendly and the location is perfect, at a walkable distance from the mains attractions.
