We (3 hoteltrainees/ 5 star hotel in Germany) were travelling a week through Ireland and Avalon House was definately the best hostel we checked in. The staff at the front desk explained us everything we had to know and we were very amazed how professional they were! Kitchen is huge and well equiped. The dorms are very clean also the bathrooms! You get a nice breakfast as well and the hostel offers a lot of leisure opportunities! GREAT STAY!THANK YOU!!!
Very nice staff, great modern kitchen. Very close to Galways city centre and main shopping street! Unfortunately linen were very dirty and we felt we weren´t the first people sleeping on these!
Pretty rooms, nice kitchen, but annoying that hostel closes from 4am to 8am and that staff opens the door at night after ringing. This makes you feel uncomfortable when a staffmember needs to walk down the stairs only to open you the door and 10 minutes later again because you come back or forget something. Isn´t there a friendlier alternative for partypeople?
Very pretty hostel, everything made with a lot of love. For example leisure opportunities or FAQ´s wirtten on the walls, pictures or a "change books" corner. Nice kitchen, good facility to have dinner outside. The owners welcome you in their pretty house and inform you about the places you have to see, the next supermarket, so on. Great service! Nice advice: Maybe you offer salt/pepper/oil in your hostel like other hostels do because it´s a pain to travel around with spicery. GREAT STAY!
Nice hostel with nice staff! Unfortunately kitchen closes from 12pm to 5pm. This does not make any sense! We totally understand that the kitchen must be cleaned but especially in these 5 hours?! The hostel has pretty rooms and gives you opportunities to eat your self made meal outside!
