Excellent hostel in a great location


100%

The staff was great!!! The hostel is awesome, on of the best i've ever been. They print whatever you need for free, they also have loads of instruments so if you are into music you'll love it. It's in a very central location, it's really great!

Loved that there were lockers right underneath the beds (bring your own lock, of course). They had great free services (printing, laundry, etc.) and breakfast was decent. A little expensive to stay on a weekend, but then again it is the city… on a weekend. Loved that the bathrooms were ensuite, and the location is a fantastic distance to all of the main attractions and shops/pubs.

Little pricey perhaps, but very helpful staff (they even printed off my bus tickets etc), plenty for breakfast and nice sitting area with internet access.

Oh my god. If you are driving, GOOD LUCK on finding this place! It took us FOREVER to find it with GPS. You have to navigate around all these one way streets and park in a parking garage separate from the hostel. But, once you find it, the location is fantastic for walking around Galway's touristy streets. Also, heads up - the WIFI is SO SLOW.

Everything about this hostel was wonderful. My experience in Galway wouldn't have been the same had I not stayed here. Special thanks to Mark and Jack for all the coffee and good times :)

Kinlay Hostel at Eyre Square is unquestionably one of the best hostels in Ireland. I've stayed there with college students and without, and I hope to visit Galway again. This hostel will be my first choice!

Nice clean hostel, not as central as other hostels but still close enough to the city center. All in all it was a nice stay and I would highly recommend it.
