We had two great nights in Galway. The hostel was really clean and we enjoyed staying there.

Great hostel - highly recommended! Friendly and helpful staff, excellent location, and a nice, clean room with a comfy bed and a private bathroom. Couldn't ask for more! The only negative point was the shower, which was a bit annoying because it's fixed to the wall and the shower head is small and the water pressure a bit weak, but besides that everything was great. Would definitely return here if I ever go back to Galway or Dublin!

A little smaller than expected and a strong odor upon arrival, but was happy to see that it was on such a great street with many restaurant options. Unfortunately the noise continued well into the night and sleep was a struggle. I highly recommend getting the free earplugs from downstairs if you are a street-facing room. Hit or miss with staff friendliness.

The ensuit room was great,very clean. It was in the centre of latin quarter. Although maybe a bigger breakfast area would be better. It does get full very quickly.

The guys at the reception were really nice. They helped us also with a problem at our luggage. The location was really in the center of Galway. The room was clean and has also a private toilet.Even though outside was noisy the room was really silent, I guess the location of our room on the side and not in front helped.
