    Breakfast was included in the price which I didn't realize when I booked. It was a pleasant surprise! Its right next to the bus station and Eyre Square. I'll return here in the future if I visit Galway again!

    A lovely hostel directly at the trainstation/main Park. (Perfectly central) Staff always there to help you or give advice/chat. Also for longer stays with a nice and really clean common area and free tea and coffee the whole day. Washrooms are clean and enough for the people in the room. Only Hostel world messed up my booking and confirmed it for Saturday but booked for Sunday. But the receptionist was very friendly and helped me.

    We absolutely LOVED our stay here. This was the first hostel I’ve ever stayed in, and it set the bar VERY high. Location is great, hostel was clean, the free breakfast was good, the hosts were friendly and accommodating… I could go on. 12/10 would recommend. I’ll definitely be back!

    A short stay but very comfortable and extremely good service/hospitality. Slightly noisy at night facing on to Eyre Square (maybe earplugs could be provided/or at least people staying in those rooms be advised when they arrive?) I had to leave quite early the next morning however I was more than accommodated and a delicious breakfast was left out for me, so a big thanks to Eva especially. All in all, very good value.
