Hostelworld says

Kinlay House Hostel Galway is located on Eyre Square, a pretty green which is also the centre of nightlife in Galway. This lively hostel was recently renovated and modernised and features accommodating staff and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Hostelworld guests have said this hostel is 'very well thought-out', citing the very large common areas, guest kitchen, frequently-praised free breakfast and the power outlets in the lockers. We like that there's traditional Irish musical instruments for guests to use.

Latest Review

" I stayed just one night in Kinlay, a Saturday night in March. It suite my needs rather well. The eight-bed room I was in was simple & comfy. It wasn't a busy night at the hostel, though apparently weeknights are a bit mental with undergraduates from NUIG. I read in the common area and chatted with some interesting folks. Staff are there and visible and stay out of your way (unless there's trouble I can only assume). "
