    Myself and 4 friends stayed here for a night over in Galway. It worked out at about 25€ a head. If we all chipped in we could have probably got a cheap hotel. Dorms are mixed we had one 4 person room and I booked in as an extra to an right person dorm. With the intention of staying with the intention of staying with them. The right person dorm was smelly and I wouldn't have been comfortable leaving my belongings. The toilet facilities overall were filthy. I'm glad didn't have to use the shower.
