A bit loud/creaky, but otherwise wonderful spot.

We had a lovely stay in the hostel during a bankholiday weekend. The stuff was very friendly and helpful! The location is great, in walking distance to the city centre. The room was small but clean and there are also lockers to put in your stuff.

I was quite sure my bed had not been cleaned in a while, as well, when my friend and I checked in, though we booked together, we were told we would be in separate rooms... They do laundry €5 which was nice!

If you just need a place to sleep and shower, you could book this hostel , but for a few more euros you can do a lot better.Plus side is that staff is frendley and nobody will try to steal your stuff.

The personnel here and the atmosphere are incredible. The owner was extremely friendly and as a result our trip to Galway for only two nights was the highlight of a 9 day trip. Highly recommend this hostel!

Great location - very central. Lockers were in the rooms, however there is no lock on your door so anyone who is staying at the hostel can just walk in.

The atmosphere was so nice, welcoming and familiar. Also the staff were so friendly and open-minded! The kitchens were outstanding and very good equiped. If we come back to Galway, we are pretty sure we are coming back to this hostel!

Best kitchen ever. There is possibility of limited free parking (during night on public carpark) and it should be added to the general information about hostel (possibility of free parking or prices of public parking).

A very eccentric little hostel! It has everything you need and the faciltiies are good, however, its basically two terrace houses knocked through so kinda small. The staff we're really nice, the mood was a bit low in the place but that might have something to do with it raining none stop. Warm, clean, little rooms, very close to town.

Great staff, location and atmosphere, rooms were very small but perfect if you want something cheap and you plan on being out for most of the day.

It took me and my husband some time to warm up to this place. Upon checking out, we decided this place was a great value as it was perfectly located. The bathrooms were surprisingly clean! The bed, however, was a bit less clean- many hairs were stuck to the pillow cases (and they were all different kinds of hairs from different people). I got over the willies I had from a less clean bed and actually slept very soundly. Though our interaction with Alberto wasn't great, everyone else was nice.

Great little hostel with a cosy and homey feel, lovely and welcoming staff and clean, safe rooms. Would definitely recommend staying here if you find yourself in Galway!
