    Location, location, location . . . and friendly staff !!

    Breakfast, toaster was not working, other than that all was good.

    close to city center for shopping and going out at night and close to the quays

    all rooms ensuite so noise at night when people go to the bathroom / no common bathroom and if you need the toilets when someone is showering you have to wait too long / on the pubs street so very noisy at night outside and in the corridors when people come back drunk

    Security was very good and I liked having a female dorm. Location was in great part of town, although away from bus terminal, which wasn't a problem.

    Booked here as was running in The Streets Of Galway 8k - just needed a place to leave baggage & have a shower & change of clothes after race - did not stay night- The girl at reception was very helpful & also allowed my friend to store his bag & get changed as well - thank you that was much appreciated- will defiantly be back next year

    - The atmosphere is extremely friendly and the staff very nice and helpful. Feels like home! - Rooms are nice and clean. Great value for money!

    I didn't like: - only WiFi Internet is free, but if you want to use the common computers you have to pay (1€ every 15 minutes)! - no toilets in the common spaces (you have to go to your room every time you need to wash your hands)

    Very friendly people, the hostel is well cleaned and the position is just perfect - right in the middle of the center. Wi-fi free, simple but good breakfast, tea and coffee available at all time. Will come back.

    To borrow the air-drier costs € 1,50 which is nothing really but still free in all the other accomodation I've been to.

    I loved the location, how helpful the staff were, the facilities and the general vibe about the place

  • Group of friends

    Great central location but with that comes the noise of shop st. Perfect for a party weekend.

  • Single

    The staff was so helpful!

    The facilities are old, and the rooms are smaller than any hostel I stayed at.
