    Very close the the City Centre (approximatively at a 5 minutes walk from the bus station) the Celtic Tourist Hostel is a warm and friendly place for backpackers in quiet street just behind the core of Galway. From there everything is at a few steps (animated places, quiet restaurants...) Also the friendly staff of one person will help you to find any kind of informations and even selfwillingly give you good plans. Definitely recommend it

    Fabulous

    Very good hostel for a few nights. The rooms were clean and had the option for locker storage under the beds. However the pillows were very big and hard and I found it difficult to get comfortable. The atmosphere was a little strange because whenever I came down for breakfast all the guests and the staff were speaking in french. It may have been coincidental. Overall a close proximity to the main sights of the city and the receptionist was very helpful in pointing out attractions. Great price!

    Very Good

    Staff is very nice and accommodating. Hostel is a bit shabby with very small and bare bones rooms. Pillow and blanket were comfy. Nothing special, but it is near the main square and not a far walk from the latin quarter. If you don't need any frills it'll do.

    Lack of night staff is a concern and very unusual in my experience in most hostels a situation arose where a girl was inside the hostel but couldn't find her room in the middle of the night. Also the 20euro key deposit was not stated when booking was made for the room. Kitchen being locked at night was also unusual and inconvenient.. I will not stay at that particular hostel again for these reasons

    This is an extremely basic old fashioned hostel. The building is old and damp but the staff keep it as clean as possible. To pay €90 for a box room 1.8 x 1.6M with bunk beds and breakfast of cheapest white bread and cornflakes is 50% overpriced.

    Host didn’t know I was arriving, answer the door in her bare feet, with addition of extra long toe nails, had to go to atm to get money as no card service, then asked for deposit for key of €20 but was told ok as reception wouldn’t be open when I was leaving in the am, room was tiny, bed was small and uncomfortable.
