We are sorry that you felt cold. The room you were in has two heaters. One of these can be adjusted by guests. We cannot control it if other guests are too warm and turn the heating down. We apologize for any inconvenience caused.

Good hostel. Although cheaper options exists, the help of the staff (especially Emma) is priceless for those just arriving to Galway, she saved me so much time with her great advice. thanks!
