Nimmos is the cheapest place to stay in Galway. I have to say it is one of the least good hostels i have stayed in, though the owner/manager is a nice chap. It's probably not to place to go if one is looking for a good night's sleep. The hostel is located near two of Galway's premier live music venues so there was a lot of noise. Other guests were rowdy and uncontrolled.

Nimmos is in a very loud location. Expect excessive noise from outside between 11pm and 4am (rock bands, yelling, taxis honking). The staff was very friendly. The beds were okay, but the bathrooms were less than satisfactory--expect unclean showers and no hand soap at the sink.

Not sure what all the negative reviews are for in particular. It's a cheap hostel and you get what you pay for! Clean bed, cooking facilities, decent bathrooms. It's certainly not amazing, but the guy that runs it is lovely, and it's in a good location with a good atmosphere. I was nervous after reading the reviews, but was happily surprised that it was as expected for such a cheap room. As mentioned, there are no lockers, or locks on doors, but if you pack accordingly that's no issue.

Note that the hostel is the building BEHIND the stone building. And the TV and DVDs were not there when I visited. However, it was cheap.

The place is very near to the center, the staff is nice. The only problem for me are the bathrooms and the showers. The prices are cheap.

Highly overpriced and there should be some sort of curfew so the lights go off the guests that were in our bedroom kept the lights on all night and set the fire alarm off so no sleep was gotten.
