Staff were very helpful in giving us ideas of what to do each day that we stayed here. Breakfast is fantastic - the scones are so delicious! My friend was pleased to have the option of soy milk with breakfast as she's lactose intolerant and this has not been catered for in most hostels.


Excelent stay at the Kinlay hostel, good location and good facilities. No ceperate bathroom. instead one for the entire floor. But no one goes to a hostel for the privacy...


Real great hostel. Really friendly staff, big common room and good kitchen. Felt more like a friendly hotel. Beds nice and warm showers!


This place was well organized and had a good flow. The common room looked very inviting. Staff was knowledgeable and nice. Free computers/printing. Room was clean. Lockers under the beds were wonderful. Hangers in the closet were useful for wet jackets. Bathroom was also clean, but there was no tub to separate toilet area from shower, just a curtain. This means the floor could get messy/really wet. There were electrical outlets near the beds (some hostels don't even have these). Great!


Amazing place and amazing staff


Honestly, the best hostel I've ever stayed in.

We girls had a great stay in Galway, although the man we shared our room with was snoring all night long. The breakfast was great, the rooms clean, it would have been great to have a small sink in each room, but okay anyway. It was nice to sit around the tables, meet new people, sing or just chat. The whole hostel looked pretty nice ! :)
