The staff is very friendly and helpful. You do want to have the pancakes in the morning. Brilliant! Tours can be booked at the hostel which makes it easier. Close to everything. Thanks for the great time.

so small, one common area- very nice kitchen but only one stove top and oven. found a used condom wrapper on the floor of the bathroom. freezing cold showers every single time of my 3 day stay.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel. I'm very surprised to hear about the cold water. This hostel was completely renovated in June this year. This renovation included a brand new heating and water system throughout the building. There was a little glitch in this new system & this was rectified within 5 minutes of our knowledge of it. It's a pity you didn't mention it to one of our team during your stay & we would have solved the issue immediately. Safe travels!

Great location, just a stone's throw from the bus station. City centre is close, only about a 5-minute walk. Staff was very friendly, they even reserved the lover bed from a bunk bed for me because I had hurt my foot :)

Best hostel I've ever stayed in. I'll be coming back for sure.

Friendly staff and quiet facilities. Great breakfast! It was hard to meet people though - the common area was small and since the hostel didn't organize any group outings, people didn't mingle much. I splurged for a 4 bed bunk and felt very claustrophobic and didn't sleep much due to a very squeaky and uncomfortable bed. Wasn't the worst hostel I've stayed in, but definitely wasn't the best. Not a bad place to crash for a couple nights.

We loved this hostel. Room and bathrooms were clean. Beds were comfortable. Staff was super friendly. Free breakfast was great. Nice common area filled with nice people. Right near downtown. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Loved my stay at the Galway city hostel, spotlessly clean with friendly helpful staff. Great location, well worth paying the little bit extra per night.
