This is the best hostel that I have ever stayed in. To me and my friends, it was more like a hotel compared to all the other hostels. The staff was always friendly and accommodating. The location is great. You are within walking distance from everything. The room and bathrooms were always clean. They serve free breakfast in the morning, have computers you can use, and free printing. Another great thing is that they let us borrow plug adapters for free! Well, you have to put down a 5 euro deposit, but you get it back. The only thing is that it is a bit noisy at night because people are partying and what not, but it didn't bother me too much. I would highly recommend staying here again!

This hostel was great, it was so good that it basically could have been a hotel, even locals knew that it was one of the best Hostels to stay in. It is in the heart of Galway, and it is easy to get to anywhere you need to go by walking. They had a run every morning and good recommendations for food, free walking tours and pub crawl. The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the wi-fi was good and it was quiet at night. I would definitely stay here again!

Stayed here as part of a work get away. We stayed in a six bed dorm with en suite, room was spotless/ beds were clean and comfortable and no noise from the other rooms. Common room is well set up, comfortable sofa's/seats, met some nice people while having a few pre drinks. Close and central to everything you'l need. Would definitely return, only fault was the night porter felt the need to follow us to are room after coming in at night. (Maybe this is a safety thing)

Have reviewed before, as usual brilliant visit to Galway would not stay anywhere else. Can't wait to come back. Staff are so helpful and hard working, facilities are top notch. You just can't go wrong.!!!

Room Tip: Street side can be a little noisy, just bring ear plugs, Easy!!!! :-)
