Very close to centre (simply because Galway main parts is small), very nice kitchen but just no heating in it so a bit cold but no worries rooms are warm enough for you to have a good sleep, I super like the pillow and blanket because they are strong and tall and big (pillow) and thick (blanket) for you to have a good sleep. Just the mattress is a slightly week. The sinks in bathrooms are quite small so I needed to do hand washing clothes and face washing and teeth brushing in the shower place.

While immediate neighborhood a bit sketchy, only on appearance, the facility very clean and accommodating while location with respect to ocean bay, services and city center including bus and train very convenient, literally 3-5 minutes from these key locations. First appearances of this facility are completely misleading. A surprising find and value.

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Celtic Tourist Hostel. It was difficult to find by once found proved to be a nice place to spend a few days visiting Galway.

The location was prime because it's a simple walk to the city center. But as for the cleanliness, we saw the employees change the bed so we know that was clean. But the floors were discussting

The rooms are very small but otherwise fine. There's free fruit in the kitchen. Not that many showers though.

Great location right next to all the bus stops and the main center, but far enough that you're not kept up all night by the partiers. The best place to meet people is definitely the kitchen! as with most hostels, the cooking utensils are kind of lacking, but there are 2 stove tops so 2 different people can be cooking dinner at once, which is nice.
