Hostelworld says

Kinlay House Hostel Galway is located on Eyre Square, a pretty green which is also the centre of nightlife in Galway. This lively hostel was recently renovated and modernised and features accommodating staff and a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. Hostelworld guests have said this hostel is 'very well thought-out', citing the very large common areas, guest kitchen, frequently-praised free breakfast and the power outlets in the lockers. We like that there's traditional Irish musical instruments for guests to use.

    Superb

    15 May 2018
    If I could give Kinlay more than 10/10 I would. Great location right off JFK/Eyre Square. Few blocks to train station. Very short walk to main pub/shopping/busker area. The pod rooms with privacy curtain, USB, light, power outlet were awesome!! Bed and pillows seemed newer and very comfortable. Bathroom setup was very convenient and spacious. Even great bathroom music. I will stay here again!! While in Galway take the Cliffs of Moher/Aran Islands tour.

    Fabulous

    Great location... you can't beat it. Very busy with someone always around. Nice to have an ensuite in our room. Free breakfast is a plus. Had to park in the eyre square car park, so that was an extra expense.

    Very Good

    15 May 2018
    Location is great, the hostel is really modern and there's a lot offered. The pod beds are awesome! However the kitchen is tiny for the amount of guests and it was the grossest hostel kitchen I've ever seen... *Everything* was dirty. First night couldn't sleep because of the young drunks yelling and slamming doors well after 11pm, but the second night was very quiet.
