    So cheap! Location was perfect; both near the busy centre of Galway and the train station. Only noise came from the construction site on the other side of the street but was not that bad. We got free breakfast which was simple but perfect. Beds and rooms were clean and the staff was incredibly nice. 10/10 would recommend!

    Brilliant hostel. Next time I'm in Galway I'll definitely be staying here- or I won't go!. Friendly, helpful staff from the beginning and right through my stay. Very clean and with a nice relaxed atmosphere. A bit further out of town but all the better for that as it was fairly quiet outside. Moved here from another hostel mid visit and never looked back. Heartily Recommended.

    Overall we loved the hostel. There was a mix up with who was supposed to be in our room which made things a little unorganized. Also there were three lockers in a four person room. Hot water did not work in the shower. We only stayed for one night so it was fine but definitely could have been better. Location is great.

    The staff were very nice and helpful. I stayed in an all female room with 4 bunks. I thought this was perfect for a break. The room was clean and we even had a private bathroom! The tours they recommend are great.

    Good basic hostel but lacked atmosphere. Great location and free breakfast is always a plus. Unfortunately not enough storage cages or power plugs.

    The girl who checked me in was really friendly, and one of the late shift guys was also really helpful but that's about as far as it went. The room was cramped and full of workmen who left all their stinky clothes and boots lying all over the floor. Not enough space for bags, the bathroom was constantly dirty, bath mat wasnt changed for 3 days and was soaked after 1 shower. Dorm room floor wasnt swept or mopped. Breakfast was okay, just toast and cereals, but it only ran until 9.30.
