Nice little hostel in walking distance to the city centre. The rooms are clean but very tiny, you don't have have much space for your things! Just one bathroom on every floor, so when somebody is in the shower you're likely to wait to go to the toilet for awhile. You don't get keys for the room. But all in all it's a good little hostel to sty in for a night or two.

The rooms are small but there is a great atmosphere, very friendly staff and an excellent equiped kitchen. Not directly located in the centre, but walking distance to the train and bus station, the city centre and supermarkets. We really enjoyed our stay there!

Great place, very comfy and full of nice people. It's like we are visiting friends or relatives, they are so considerate and friendly. Great human interactions. No breakfast included, but there is FREE tea and coffee and often free food is left by previous visitors - and it's actually nice to be able to cook on your own, at your own pace, even in the morning (big TESCO and LIDL 5min away). We stayed 3 days and preferred it tot the big Kinlay, where we were before.

I spent only one night at salmon weir. I was in a six bed but had the room to myself. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

The staff is what made this hostel amazing. Incredibly friendly. Very clean hostel. The only isdue I have with this hostdl is that the room was too crowded and hot, they squeeze as many beds in a room as possible that you cant walk in it without stepping on someone's things. Would be nice if thd big window could open to get cool air in. Loved the receptionist, friendly guy.hard working fellow

Very small room with a corner in it. Irritating that every time you left you had to leave your room key behind and when you came back you had to ring the bell and wait for them to open and give you your room key.

Room was very small and with the heat very stuffy...we had to open windows at night which meant the traffic outside became very loud...upset on a few occasions as lack of space to move was quite overwelming and caused some stress to our time away...staff were lovely though and everything else was ok just it was difficult to relax when in room

The hostel is good in general (clean bathrooms, good showers, beds and kitchen). Negative point: have time to close (3 in the night), so you cannot enjoy the night until the end.

Really lovely stay, staff were really relaxed. Just one thing was annoying that we did not have a key to front door as had t obe back by three in the morning as we would have been locked out otherwise! and one of the showers was a little small! Apart from that really lovely and the price is very cheap :)

The non-present Irish owner seems to have the hostel only as an investment venture and has minimal facilities. The French cew managing the hostel gets the high remarks.

Very kind and helpful staff. Small hostel with nice atmosphere. We spent night at double bed private room and even though weather was not so cold the heaters were on which was comfy.

We staied in a 6 bed bedroom and it was really small, se could not stand in the room all at the same time. But the people there is so nice, so receptive that it did not bothered us at all. There is no breakfast included but there is a lot of supermarkets near the hostel and they have an amazing kitchen. The place is good value for money and the staff is amazing. The location is great.

This is the right hostel to stay in Galway. It's very close to the canal and only a 10 minutes walk from the central pub area.

We spent four days in this hostel and we had a great time. I would to highlight the amability of the staff, specially Don and Xavi. We received advice, recommendations and different options to enjoye the city of Galway. The hostel atmosphere is fantastic and comfortable.

Although we didn't spend a lot of time in the actual hostel out room was super pokey, 3 bunk beds was far too many for the space. Other than that it was clean a good kitchen and lounge room were easily accessible and the staff were all super helpful.

The rooms didn't lock, so whilst the front door was monitored by staff, anyone in the hostel can go into your room. However, they do provide large lockers in all the rooms. The staff were unable to book tours for us but they do offer pamphlets so they do provide a bit of information and a city map. The bathrooms were pretty clean. It is close to Shop Street, only a 5 minute walk away. There are two kitchens which are well-equipped.
