This is perhaps the best hostel I've ever been in! Great location, everything was clean and even though it's a small hostel, everything was well-equipped. Really nice and helpful staff and the atmosphere in the hostel was wonderful! Each bed has a locker beneath the bed (bring your own lock) and it's own electrical sockets (both British and European). The kitchen and common room are basically the same room but that actually worked great for meeting new friends and a real homely feeling.

My stay in Galway was only made better by the wonderful staff and prime location of Galway City Hostel. The staff truly went above and beyond to make my stay "the best craic in Ireland". Will definitely be coming back here!

Overall a very good hostel. Particularly impressed by the cleanliness, the nice bedrooms and the excellent showers. Sadly though I managed to lock myself out my room in the middle of the night which of course was very careless of me but because you have to take your key card with you to the bathroom, easily done. So I was unable to get back in until the morning, because the reception is not open 24 hours. If it was, that problem would have been easily solved...but be careful!!

Everything is really good, nothing to complican. Excepto maybe that the hostel is located just by the bus station and, thus, it can get quite loud at night or early in the morning. Maybe the price for the rooms juts by the station should be cheaper.

Wish there would have been more storage space in the rooms or bins that came with locks rather than having to bring your own

Very good breakfast. A bit noisy in the Night.

Staff was very helpful and offered suggestions for dinner and drinks after. They have coupons for free drinks. The location is close to everything in town and both forms of public transportation (bus and train). Felt very safe and secure. Room was very quiet even though there's live music in the bar below.

We had a great stay at Galway City Hostel! Staff was very friendly and helpful, everything was very clean and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. It wasn't the cheapest option, but really worth the money. After all, you don't usually get fresh scones and homemade bread for breakfast in a hostel!

Super friendly staff and very clean. Small hostel so atmosphere is not very lively and farther than other hostels to the pubs but it's right next the coach/bus station making it quick and easy for day trips around Galway.

Maybe the rooms are a bit impersonal but at the same time super clean. The staff are simply lovely. The big table of the living room is the best way to meet new travel mates and the hostel is located in the main square 2, min walk from the bus station. One of the best hostel in which I've ever been.

This hostel was awesome. Very clean, very secure. The location was perfect, literally 10 seconds from the bus stop. It was an incredible value for the money.
