Great location. Shame you have to pay to store your bags. Staff were friendly. Would stay again

Thanks for your review. We have a great, central location! We have lockers available before check-in and after check-out from as little as 40c, to a maximum of EUR 4 for 24 hours - more than half the price of lockers at Central Station. There are also free lockers available in the room, which we give you a padlock for, and a safe in the reception which you can use.

Didn't receive a warm welcome. The staff are just interested in each other. The breakfast was average. The room was so hot! The toilets were always dirty. But the worst part was how loud the awful music in the bar was until midnight. If you want to sleep, go somewhere else. Oh and.. outdoor swimming pool? I think not.

Bruce is such a great host. His instructions for Santa Ana Volcano and buses to Antigua were perfect. It's 15 minutes walk to the centre which is fine. There's a mall and supermarket just around the corner.

Look no further and don't stay anywhere else. This hostel is an 8 minute walk from the beach so it's quiet at night which is great. Nicole is a brilliant host. She cannot do enough for you. The hostel had everything you need. There's some great common areas so you're likely to meet people. We ended up staying 6 nights and felt like part of the family. Thank you so much for a great stay.

This is a great hostel because it's on the lake side. We got off to a bad start because they sent us back out onto the street at 3:30am because they have a rule about sitting in reception until daylight. Doesn't feel right to me.

The best welcome ever. Really lovely people. A great place to meet new people. Would absolutely stay here again. My only criticism is that in the 4 bed dorm I stayed in the wall didn't go to the ceiling so the light and any noise from the neighbouring room came in. It seems odd not to finish the wall.

Amazing location. Really great staff and comfy beds. Cool old building but.. downstairs is a fancy restaurant which on the night I stayed had a gala dinner with orchestra that played into the night. There's a severe lack of plug sockets available and no blinds so the room is always light from the corridor. I wouldn't stay again.

A pretty poor hostel overall. The price doubled on a friend night, the staff weren't overly friendly and the room smelt bad

View Property Reply

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some feedback. I'm sorry to hear that overall you were not satisfied with your stay. I'm surprised that you found our staff unfriendly, as the majority of guests comment on how helpful and welcoming our staff are. The rates do slightly increase on Friday and Saturday nights, as weekends are the busiest period in Galway. This is the same for all hostels in the city. We encourage all guests to report any concerns to our 24 hour Reception, so that we may have the opportunity to assist during your stay. We wish you well for the future.

Stayed here before but wouldn't stay again. It's in a great location however there's many improvements that need to be made. Some of the staff (including those on reception) speak very little English. The common / breakfast areas have no fans or air conditioning so it's baking. Some of the rooms have bad showers and despite our good shower the bathroom smells bad and is only cleaned in the morning but Hoi An is so hot that everyone showers twice daily. The breakfast is OK. The owners are nice.

The whole place is so clean and well maintained. The family dinner and breakfast is amazing. The common area is perfect for making friends. I love this hostel so much. They even got me a massive cake to say thanks for supporting their business. You must stay here. Thank you Cozy Nook. You are amazing.

I stayed here many times last year but it's lost a lot of its charm. No free drink on arrival, no wrist band, no free beer token. We had an unlucky experience this time with a noisy crowd but it's still not as good as I remember.

A brilliant hostel. One of the best I've stayed in. I'll stay here again when I return to KL.
