    Superb

    10 Jun 2018
    Wow! What a great staff! I got there late and there was someone there to help me. The bed and breakfast were lovely and it was nice to have coffee in the morning. Most of all, I lost my broach that belongs on my hat and was pretty devastated, as I was running late for my train and couldn’t find it. Finally, I called the hostel to double check, and not only did they find it, but are going to mail it to me. 💜🌻🔮 This is the best hostel ever and they had my short stay in Galway stress free! 💜

    Superb

    The only negative about this hostel is how long the night life goes on - it goes on well into four in the morning some nights, which is great... for some people. Other than that, the staff were super friendly, clean bathrooms, hot showers, money exchanges at the reception desk, outlets for everyone, good wifi and comfy beds. I would definitely stay again - nothing to really complain about!

    Very Good

    The hostel itself was fine, but they need to train their clerks better. Some drunk girl in our room puked all over a chair next to my bed at 4am (I have emetophobia, so this was a big deal for me). My sister went to the desk to tell them, but the clerk just said that the cleaning crew would be there in the morning. She told him I was on the verge of a panic attack, but he still refused to move us or get rid of the puke. The clerk in the morning apologized, but didn't offer any refund or anything

    Great location to all the pubs and shopping in Latin Quarter, but left much to be desired. Pretty sure our sheets weren’t clean when we checked in, the shower was sketchy, and there was no hot water AT ALL which in Ireland is necessary. I take that back, there was hot water in the sink only, but if used you would literally burn the flesh off your hands. Good location but wouldn’t recommend
