Loved this place, Jim is a beaut. It's not the prettiest place in the world, but the atmosphere makes up for it. If I come back to Galway I'll definitely be staying here.

This hostel is a great cheap option for a night out. But bed linens seem to not all be cleaned regularly (or ever). Also the bar next door is a source of noise until 5 am. That being said everyone we met was lovely and the owner was very detail oriented. If you stay here understand you get what you pay for.

Definitely a backpacker's hostel! You will meet great people here and the owner, Jim is a very nice and easygoing guy. It's a great atmosphere and in a very central location. Don't plan on putting anything in the fridge for cooking though because it is packed with food already and very messy. The wifi goes in and out and the place is is a run down building but beds and toilets look like they have been updated. The rest of the payment is cash only.

Very good kitchen with everything you need to cook, nice owner, electric socket near the each bed, it's perfect! (the only one hostel in which I stayed in Ireland with this function, usually cheap hostels have only one charger for whole room). Good bathroom. However, everything is a bit old and dirty. Noise on the street during the night.

It was very nice staying here, going alone but ended up getting to know the entire room and spent the time there with them. It was beyond convenient for the city center or a short walk to the beach. The host was very nice and talked with us. Not the best out there. But it's worth the experience.

Photos are nicer than what they actually were. Kitchen was messy Staff are friendly Didn't take Debit Card so make sure you have cash. Was not advised of this. Bring earplugs as it's noisy at night with windows open Very good location.

Very sketchy entrance way into the hostel. The showers did not lock which was not okay. The hostel did not have an office at all.
