We spent one night here last month and were dismayed by the lack of cleanliness and our over-priced closet-sized room. We booked online and paid far too much for a room that was not as described.
There were, at one time, a lot of good reviews of this hostel floating around the web. There's no way that I would ever recommend this to anyone travelling to Galway.
The only consolation was that it was relatively quiet at night.
