The staff was extremely charming, helpful, and knowledgeable. The only downsides we encountered were the noise level in the courtyard after dark and having to change rooms every night of our 3 night stay.

What a cracking hostel! I got my bed for €9.99 with breakfast included, what's not to love!?

Very expensive for the service provided. 25 euros a night to have a slice of bread and jam full of butter with one spoon to share. only 3 plugs for the room. No locker in the room. It was ok for my space but other girls did not have space for luggage or small luggage in the room.

The price you paid was actually less than €25 a night and for that we provide a continental breakfast which includes tea/coffee, toast, jams and cereals; free towels, free internet and the rooms are Wi-Fi enabled.You chose the large 10bed dorm which is obviously busier than the smaller dorms but we do have luggage storage options both in our luggage room and in safe deposit boxes at reception (free if you bring your own lock).

There are no outlets in the bathrooms for hair dryers, straighteners etc. so if you're planning on blow drying your hair, plan on going to the laundry room for a suitable outlet. This is a large hostel and the first night I was there there was a large crowd in the court yard yelling, playing loud music etc. all night, so bring ear plugs or headphones. Beds are comfortable, rooms are clean and showers are hot and nice.

This is without a doubt, the best hostel in Galway city and it has stood the test of time. The staff are second to none and go out of their way to assist all guests. The cleaning staff are also worth a mention as the cleanliness is a hugh credit to them.

We stayed 1 night in a double bedroom shared bath in an apartment next door to the hostel. Our room was closest to the street, therefore didn't have a good night's sleep. Wifi is not available in apartments either. Paid parking down the street.

Good place! Largish hostel, plenty going on all the time. The staff were great! Breakfast -- need cereal other than cornflakes. Wifi worked well throughout the building. Washing machines etc worked well. Showers had hot water.. beds were comfy. Very pro hostel, will definitely stay here again next time I'm in Galway.

Warm welcome, caring staff who gave good recommendations for my one night stay in Galway. Cleanliness and comfort were the immediate impressions. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends and would certainly return.

It was a nice stay - stuff is nice, atmosphere is good, especially because there is a comfortable chill out area (with free WiFi and internet) were you can always find some people to talk and were it is nice to have breakfast with all the other young travellers around! The common bathroom (there's also a bathroom in the dorm but it is very small and of course not enough for six people in the morning!) is not the biggest but it's ok. One more good thing: the beds are very comfortable. :)

Very clean and spacious ensuite female dorm. Excellent kitchen facilities. Hot showers and no problems connecting to the free wifi. Short walk from bus station and to city attractions. Enjoyed day tour of Cliffs of Moher that I booked at the hostel reception desk. Some noise at night from the street, but overall not bad.

Everything was on par for the hostel. I DID like the staff as people, friendly and all that, but their knowledge didn't seem quite up to par with other hostels I've stayed at.
