    Loved this place definitely a more chill vibe if you are looking for a nice clean and quiet stay this is the place. The rooms are spacious and the water pressure and wifi is good. The staff is lovely and the facilities are clean and well equipped. This is definitely my number choice in Galway I wish I would have found it sooner but the first couple of nights weren’t available so it didn’t show in my search. Overall my choice for Galway.

    Staff are really friendly and helpful! Put three separate bookings in the same room! The craic was mighty! Everyone was really friendly! Location is great a couple minutes walk and you're in the city center. Also just a note don't park in the housing estate right next to the hostel. They will clamp you.

    Overall I enjoyed my stay. Hostel is clean, staff are friendly and location is great. The continental breakfast is a bonus. Only negative was the drunk ppl shouting in the corridors and a staff member was helping someone find their bed, so he came into my room and turned the lights on and when the staff member left my room he left the light on. This was very annoying at 3.30am.
