I was very happy with my stay at Woodquay Hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean & there was a communal room. If I could highlight negatives; I was slightly worried that anyone could walk in the front door at night. I appreciate the rooms are locked but maybe the front door should be locked & residents given a key? Also, the moving about of people from room to room mid-stay is really not on. A better system is needed. I would stay again & that's the real test.

One of the ladies that worked the desk at the hostel was absolutely wonderful. She shared all of her knowlegde of Galway with us and helped us with any questions we had about the city. She was by far the nicest lady we dealt with during our 2 weeks in Ireland at hostels. I would highly recommend this hostel for anyone. Great location and clean.

I did not enjoy my stay at this hostel at all. The sheets in the bed were dirty, the door from the room was broken and it opened on its own. There was a big group of teenagers that kept making noise without anyone from the hostel telling them to keep the volume down. The room and toilets were cold and the breakfast poor

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.
