it was clean, it has a nice kitchen, the staff is very nice, the location is great, they have a nice common room, the wifi is good.
the room smelled a little moldy, and it's a bit confusing to find your room sometime s
its really good stay in Bunk hostel. Everything is very new and comfortable what is like hotel and home.And location is city center.I will recommend friend to this place.
Soundproof is not so good.Its to noise when party people live here.
Room was a bit too small and the kitchen a bit crowded with some products missing, but overall the quality/price and the location is great!
In the heart of the vibe
Proximity to everything in the middle of town. Staff gave helpful tips on where to get a vegetarian meal. Waived the price for towels.
Internet was not strong on our floor (2nd). Mattresses were in need of a clean, didn't want to sleep under one of the bunks as I could see either rust or mold! Fire alarm that woke us up was unfortunate. Breakfast room was so overfilled that we went somewhere else.
The location is perfect. The staff is very helpful and hav a great sense of humor.
Location is, simply put, the best in town. There's too much fun around and it's very quiet inside at the same time. The facilities are clean and the staff are really friendly.
The mattress was probably not the best in the world and you couldn't adjust the temperature in the shower.
Everything since the location, cleaning, team, living room, breakfast till the bedroom were perfect, I strong recommend this hostel I had a great time there!
City center. Easy to access.
Noisy in weekend. Guests come back midnight.
Staff was beyond helpful wish u could remember names.
Coming from canada I find most hostels overpriced for what you get. That being said the room was great an clean.
Being in the main street of Galway !
My bedroom was too much warm, such as a furnace !
Amazing location, close to everything you could need. Staff is super helpful and friendly, the price is something you can't beat, I will definitely stay here again.
Everything was great!
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.
The general conditions of cleanliness (very good to be an hostel, expecially in an anglo-saxon country).
location in high street
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.
very good central location in the pedestrian zone. Therefore, long noisy, and in the house. If a youth hostel and there you will be remembered. for one night it was ok very good central location in the pedestrian zone. Therefore, long noisy, and in the house.

Great location, loved the free breakfast which you can't complain. Overall great stay.
I liked everything. Travelled the world and can honestly say it was better than some 3/4 hotels. The staff were fantastic very helpful. Good security and clean. Cheap for what you get.
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.
Staff were very friendly and very accommodating.
everything structure..intimacy..charm great staff location facilties being improved..price for every tre trte magnifique'
Just one loud mouth obnoxious guest
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.
Staff very friendly Free coffee/juice/bread/jam for breakfast
I wish there was a shared relaxation area open 24/7
