Avalon House – Dublin Southside

Avalon HouseThe Avalon House is one of the most popular budget accommodations on the southside of Dublin—and there's good reason for that. Located 2 blocks from St. Stephen's Green, all of the best spots on the southside are in walking distance from the hostel. Dublin Castle, Grafton Street, and Trinity College are awaiting your visit. And of course we can't forget the Guinness Brewery!

Accommodations in this Victorian building range from singles to multi-bedded dorm rooms. All of the rooms are co-ed. They have a self-serve kitchen, continental breakfast in the morning and a café to boot!

One of the best things about this hostel is that it never closes! There is 24-hr access through their key card security system. This will allow you to come and go exactly as you please!

The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. Check in begins at 2pm. If you arrive earlier, you can leave your bags in their storage room downstairs and begin to explore Dublin straight away.

The atmosphere is a fun one. Its not difficult to meet other travelers here. There is always something going on in the café and games room. Internet access is available as well as a TV room downstairs by the storage room.

I found the rooms themselves to be very clean and comfortable. Most rooms have bunk beds. I stayed in a 4 bedded room on the third floor which had an incredible view of Dublin.

The other multi-bed room I saw wasn't your standard box with bunk beds aligned in rows. It was an interesting two-level room with side areas which had beds that allowed for more privacy even though there must have been 16 beds total.

As nice as this hostel is, you do still have to deal with bunking with others. I encountered a roommate who snored so loud I was amazed he didn't wake himself up in the process! But this certainly didn't spoil my time there or my option of Avalon House.

I definitely recommend a stay at Avalon House when you are in Dublin. Make an online reservation via HostelWorld.com now.
