    Best hostel ever! Confortable, clean, cosy and pretty. The rooms and beds are large and comfortable, the bathrooms are fully equipped and clean, the common areas (kitchen, living room) arr pretty, cosy and clean. The breakfast is GREAT and they also give any extra food for free when it ends. Just note that the parking is very small and you might not have a place if you arrive late, and they is no hangers in the rooms but you can easily store things on your bed.

    This was probably the nicest hostel I have stayed in. The breakfast was gourmet pastry and french-pressed coffee, the rooms were clean and quiet and the lounge area felt like I was in an upscale coffee shop. The added free parking is great. It is about 15-20 min walk from Ayre Sq. and a lot of the main pubs but is a good middle ground between this and some of the other lesser known (but better) areas in salthill. Would recommend The Nest to anyone looking for a great place to stay.

    Great place to spend a night or two. A bit of a walk into the town Center but Salt Hill is a lovely area with enough pubs and restaurants to give you options. The hostel itself is clean, staff are friendly and helpful.

    We had a fantastic stay at The Nest. It is an easy, pleasant, safe walk from Galway (including at night), and the value to cost ratio is phenomenal. What a cozy, welcoming, well-designed space! Our women’s only dorm was great, and we really loved spending time eating breakfast and relaxing in the common area. Really added a lot to our Galway experience. Thanks for a great stay.

    Nice hostel, friendly staff, grand breakfast,... You have to actually lock the door from inside the room and there weren't a lot of space, but the bed was really comfy!
