    Location, staff

    Locks on underbed storage would have been good, then we wouldn't have had to worry about leaving things even if they weren't that valuable. More breakfast options would also have been good, eg. different cereals.

    Location was amazing, staff were fantastic, brilliant price, great kitchen facilities and a quick and simple complimentary breakfast.

    Rooms were a little on the warm side, meaning nose from outside could be heard from surrounding bars as the windows were always open.

    The location was perfect for being in the center of shops and pubs. Donegal at the front desk was very helpful & friendly. Fun atmosphere

    It was a little loud at night but they offer free earplugs at the front desk.

    We really liked the location, the warm bedding, and information on tours in the area.

    We didnt like the inability to control the water temperature in the shower. Also the breakfast was just bread, jam and juice, and more options would have been nicer even if there was a small fee.

    The staff were warm and friendly. They will tell you their favorite restaurants, sites, and chat a bit about how your day went. The location is central to shopping and food. I was here several days and watched the maid come by and clean the lines and the kitchen on a regular basis. there are lockers under the beds, so bring a pad lock.

    So, imagine the North Pole. Now imagine a little gnome, all bundled up fr the winter, chipping away at the ice. Then imagine him cramming that block of pure blue ice into the water pipes and out through your shower head in a thin, frozen drizzle. After he sits gleefully giggling at his mischievious bit of fun, he finally relents, fishes out his wrench and allows a trace of warmth to taint the water. Some five or six pushes of the button later, your poor blue, shivering body actually begins to feel this suggestion of warmth-- but that's all you'll get-- a suggestion that almost aspires to luke-warm. If you are a 'young thing' looking for a pint and some craic-- you've found the right place, dead on. If you are the sort who wants a decent night's sleep and a good walk around town that might include a museum or two-- forget it my friends. The noise in the halls will keep you up more than the bands out in the pubs.

    Loved the location. I stayed there as we were heading out to see the nightlife in Galway city, and we were surrounded by some of the most amazing pubs with live music. Barnacles really is located at the heart of the city life. But once you go to bed, we never heard a sound from the people on the street outside. Also the staff were extremely friendly, bedrooms lovely and comfortable, and the price - couldn't of asked for a better deal.

    A little disappointed with the breakfast the next morning. A continental breakfast was supposed to be provided as part of the deal. It was just orange juice and toast really, but it didn't bother us too much as we were up and heading away early.

    I liked the atmosphere of the place- very homey

    Breakfast- I think other options besides toast should be available (perhaps cereal, fruit, tea)

    Location

    No hair dryer available when it states online that there is. Not great value for money, breakfast was poor and rooms are small.

    The staff were very nice and helpful. The location was excellent, right in the heart of the city. We felt very welcome and comfortable and would definitely stay again

    The water temperature in the shower was not adjustable and was only lukewarm, it would have been refreshing in summer but not in middle of winter.

    Having booked on line I paid by cash on arrival, however the money was also frozen in my account for a number of days. I was not aware of this and as a result was short 42 euro for my trip.I am unemployed and this is a considerable amount when you are on a low budget. I would have been better off paying on line all together
