If traveling to Galway it is a little out of the way, but the place was great. There was no breakfast, but there was a very nice kitchen to use and they had coffee and hot chocolate. Also there was wifi throughout the building which was nice, and it was just a short walk into the town in the morning. In all it was a very nice stay.

Well equipped kitchen. No breakfast included. Interior of the room was a bit outworn and outdated. Could need some refurbishment in the future.

Mary and Caro thanks for your comments and I enjoyed your company tooo.


As the rooms and the hostel get not locked, the only security are the other people sharing a room with you. The plan on the Website of the hostel is very inaccurate and the hostel looks to be very close to the village - but it isn't. And as there is a big building site directly in front of the hostel, the atmosphere is also not very imposing. The price is acceptable - but in view of the location of the village it should be even cheaper.
