    The location of this hostel is just 5 minutes walk from Eyre Square. There is a loving common room where people could chat and dine. The toilets and shower rooms are always clean as well. Every bed is equipped a locker underneath. As long as you bring your own lock, I feel safe to leave my stuff there. Worth the price. Last but not lease, Cat Hal and his colleague are helpful and friendly, making a warm stay there.

    great hostel in a good location with free breakfast and friendly staff. There wasn't much room at all in the large dorm rooms for everyone to put their stuff and only some beds came with secure lockers. Also only 4 toilets for the whole building. apart from that, it was a really great stay and we would definitely book again.

    Great location about 5 mins walk from the town centre, close enough to all the good stuff but far enough that we weren’t kept up at all hours of the night! Big lockable cages under the bunk beds instead of lockers, bathrooms seem pretty clean and well-maintained, breakfast was good and people were fairly chatty. Had a bit of bad luck with the other people who were there at the same time as us but you can’t really do anything about that! All in all, would stay here again.

    I had a great stay here during my time in Galway! The atmosphere is laid back and great for meeting other travelers, without being too much of a party hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially with arranging tours to the surrounding areas. Galway is a small city, so it was easy to walk from the hostel to all the major sites. The only major issue was a lack of sound insulation between the rooms, as I could hear stomping from the room above.

    J’ai fait de meilleures auberges avant d’arriver à celle ci mais elle est tout à fait correcte. Il y avait beaucoup de groupes de français, argentins, allemands et pour une personne seule c’était plus difficile de se sociabiliser. Mais le staff est IMPEC’, à l’écoute, donne de supers conseils, vraiment top de ce côté

    Great for solo travellers though not really if you’re looking to meet people. The common room was pretty quiet but that wasn’t the fault of the hostel itself. Only a very short walk to the main shops, pubs etc. Cages to lock your bags in under the bed, bring a padlock! 24 hr security/reception Had a very comfortable stay here!
