An old EuroCheapo hostel favorite, the Avalon House Hostel is housed in a majestic Victorian structure (itself a former medical school), far enough from the Dublin pub action to be a decent choice for the quieter hostel lover.

We’ve watched Avalon House over the years, and have to say that it hasn’t changed much. There are the same small dorm rooms and the same blue bunk beds reminiscent of army barrack beds. There’s free Wi-Fi now, which we love, and there are decent rates across all room types— both with private bathrooms or shared facilities.

Since our last visit, Avalon House added a branch of the Bald Barista. Having one of Dublin’s top coffee purveyors essentially in-house means that very high-quality espresso can be had without a lot of expended effort. This is perfect, it almost goes without saying, for those pub recovery mornings. We also like the basement lounge area, which feels both ratty and welcoming.

One thing to note, Lotharios and vixens. Avalon House is quite strict about not allowing guests to bring non-guests into the hostel. So think before you flirt.

A continental breakfast is included in the room rate. Wi-Fi is free throughout and there is also a free Internet station.

About the Avalon House neighborhood

Verdant St. Stephen’s Green is perhaps the largest, but certainly not the only, park in this quiet (yet central) sliver of Dublin. There's also Merrion Square, where stately Georgian homes and stattuettes of famed residents recall past grandeur, and Iveaugh Gardens with its elegant stone fountains. North of the Green, shopping, bars and throngs of people set the stage.
