    This hostel felt like a home and the staff were really nice (especially Donal) but it wasn't the cleanest and it's an old building.

    The best Fabrizio, the Italian man who works there. The price is "normal" between the week, but espensive for the weekend for services (like other hostels in Galway, anyway). People who stayed there were nice and also interesting, but the rooms are small and in general not so good in my opinion.

    Super small and dirty rooms and bathroom. One bathroom for a floor on 14 people and mgmt didnt care to fix the modem when the wifi went down about an hour into us checking in. No atmosphere and the inly thing oversized was the kitchen. Only stay here if you have NO OTHER CHOICE and location is important as there are many other hostels better for location and every other regard than this place!

    This hostel was disappointing for so many reasons. No keys on the doors and no lockers in the rooms - anyone could walk in and take your things. Hostel is also filthy - bad smell, broken tiles in bathrooms, cobwebs everywhere, no hand soap or toilet roll in the bathroom (at least the one nearest my room). It's dark and has no atmosphere. The only thing going for it is the location. I will never stay here again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Pay a bit extra for somewhere clean and safe!

    stayed one night in a private double room, kitchen facilities were extremely dirty borders on a health issue the night we stayed. Bedroom was sparse with a metal locker for clothes no hanging space. Toilets and shower were shared, cracked and dirty. Carpets and bannisters weren’t clean, Seriously spend €15 more and stay somewhere else.
