Avalon House is one of the most popular budget accommodations
on the southside of Dublinand 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
