    We enjoyed our stay here- the rooms and bathrooms are very clean, and large storage cages are provided under the beds for storing luggage. Breakfast is ok but not very filling (mostly cereal and toast). The location to Galway city center is great though- it's about a 5 minute walk to the main shopping area and pubs.

    Nice facilities, very clean and secure. Friendly staff. Decent breakfast. My only complaint is the noise. There were people yelling and loudly laughing both nights in the halls from 11 PM through until almost 3 AM. I didn’t get very good sleep here at all. There should be a better enforced quiet hour policy. If you plan on booking here, do it, but bring earplugs!

    The room was great, storage and outlets/lights for every bed. Staff were friendly. The common area was in the basement so it was a bit dark (with no natural light). Fridge storage situation was chaotic but seemed to work well enough. The kitchen is set up in way that makes it really annoying/awkward to have more than one person cooking on the stove at the same time.

    Great location, decent breakfast. Good room space but bathroom can get really wet since just a shower curtain. Also, no other showers outside of room. Good discount for parking in certain car park! Lockers under bed are so loud/squeaky.

    Very central and very well secured place with key cards, nice but small kitchen, an ok breakfast (toasts and cereal and real but not really good coffee). You get the feeling as if you were in a hotel, in the sense that there isnt really a hostel atmosphere, the staff do their job behind the desk but wont create a friendly atmosphere. One of them was rather unpleasant, sometimes rude. Otherwise the common area is cool, pool and table foosball available and the place is very clean.

    Very Good

    It’s a very good location in Galway, and if you are planning on being out of the hostel lots then it is great. We like to cook our own food when we travel, and this may have been the messiest kitchen we encountered. There isn’t enough fridge space and people didn’t seem to be doing their dishes. The staff is great about this though, I always saw them cleaning and removing expired items from the fridges. Overall it’s a nice place. Bathrooms are clean, beds are nice, and location is supreme.
