Awesomely designed hostel with comfy beds in a really hip area. They always put on events so it's easy to meet the other travelers. There are much cheaper places to stay in the city that even include a good breakfast (which they don't) which is the only downside in my opinion.

Home base is in the cool neighborhood of Melville, yet still a 5-10 minute walk from the action, which is good for quite sleeping but bad for walking home at night from a bar. The hostel itself is average. It's nice that they offer a free breakfast, but it ends too early at 9:30. I stayed in the large dorm and could hear a conversation through the thin walls in the room next door. This wasn't pleasant when next door they woke up at 5am and have a conversation at full volume.

Fine place. It was full, but definitely didn't have the vibe of a hostel. Was more half locals from other areas of KZN staying for the weekend including families. Everything was clean, but sedate too.

Staff was friendly and helpful, and other guests were great. One sink, stove, etc for 200 plus guests? You're joking. You get in line to wash your dishes after breakfast. Cold showers in the morning and a few broken ones too. Cheapest place to stay in the city though.

Nimmos Hostel, Galway, Ireland

I don't know what everyone is complaining about. It's by far the cheapest hostel in Galway, the beds are comfortable, clean sheets, it has a common room that's easy to meet everyone, and has a functioning kitchen. The only possible bad things about it are there is only one staff member at a time who often isn't at reception if you need something but he's usually cleaning up the rooms or bathrooms. There basically is NO security, but you're also allowed to bring friends who aren't staying!

I arrived at 10pm which is apparently after the staff goes home. I wished to pay in cash, but was forced to use a credit card AND pay 2% extra for doing so which was kind of annoying. Room was pretty amazing with a porch that overlooked the pool, private bathroom and two separate areas with 4 beds each.

The beds aren't super comfy (same as the nomads down the street), but I paid for a 4 bed without windows (cheapest room) and was upgraded to a 4 bed with windows (most expensive) which had it's own kitchen/bathrooms. The best part about this mini common area was the ability to meet other people in the surrounding rooms using this mini common area. I'd stay here again, and would choose it over the other nomads.

The beds were uncomfortable, but nice hot showers.
