It was by far my most memorable hostel to stay at. It has all the amenities and is close proximity to everything you need while in Galway. I will definitely be staying there again when I return. Shaun

Disappointed. I had made a booking via hostelworld and when I arrived I was told there was no booking... I had to insist a bit to get room and they don't accept credit cards. Apart from this, the hostel is well situated and is quite nice.


the staff and hostel made visiting my husband in hospital so much easier and without the kindness of 1 staff member i dont think i would of managed i would give them 5 stars ***** and recomend them to everyone

This is a great hostel in an awesome location. Very homely atmosphere.


Maybe it's ok for one night or a weekend. Staff seems to be upset and facilities are a bit poor but very clean.
