Lonely Planet review
One of the city's most popular hostels, welcoming Avalon House has pine floors, high ceilings and large, open fireplaces that create the ambience for a good spot of meet-the-backpacker lounging. Some of the cleverly designed rooms have mezzanine levels, which are great for families. Book well in advance.
Our independent authors have visited Avalon House and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Grafton Street & Around.

The cheapest way to get here is on the 16 bus from the airport. It will drop you right beside the hostel on Aungier Street and costs €3.05. Make sure you have exact change as none is given on the bus. The journey lasts about 40/60 minutes and it operates from 7.45am during the week and 8.30am on Sundays. The last bus is 10.40pm except Saturday when it is 10.20pm. Buses go roughly every 20 minutes but check the timetable at the bus stop for exact times
