Score from 219 reviews Very good
Onsuite bathroom, free tea and coffee in common room. Really nice people. Bus outside the door to town.
We enjoyed mostly everything. We appreciated the cleanliness. The staff was very helpful for directions to particular places of interest and restaurants. The mural and the fish tanks were a nice plus. We'd stay there again since it was so close to the bus station.
The menu could use fruit.
Decoration Friendly staff Elevator Kitchen
friendly staff ideal loctation
The price was very reasonable and breackfeast was included
Relaxed atmosphere and polite / friendly staff
Very very poor nights sleep -an awful lot of noise from others residents over night . No one seemed to be monitoring it. The mattresses were alright , could be alot better for the cost if staying there . Bewleys hotel cost about the same but better value -stayed in kinlay hostel as different / saw on tv -seemed good and different option but bad value for families .
Very friendly and nice hostel.
The only thing I could fault about the place was the complete over reaction of staff at night time. Even having a really low conversation in your room the security would be knocking on the door to stay quiet. Then right on 10.30am the next morning they were banging on the door to leave the room as it was checkout time (we were clearly packing at this stage) and she said she will be back in ten minutes and we better be Gone!!! Other than that the location and cleanliness of the hostel was superior. They even had an array of musical instruments in the chill out area to jam with :-D
Location is very good and employees are very nice. especially Maria
excellent service excellent facillities would stay again in a heart beat it will be the first place to look if i need to stay in galway again
wifi connection in the room kept cutting off on on again but thats the only thing wrong
Outstanding location, generous breakfast, the best ablution facilities I have encountered anywhere with ample numbers of all things and space to move. Helpful and friendly staff.
The next time the management orders bunks, specify headroom for the lower at least two inches higher. Head banging for even those of average height was a content irritation until one adjusted to the problem. The location of the personal lights was overlooked when more beds were added. Not convenient. And typical of most hostels, a lack of hooks on which to hang things.
All of the staff were excellent; so friendly, helpful and courteous. The beds and shower areas were absolutely spotless. Fantastic location.
I know that it's a hostel so I wasn't expecting air conditioning! It was so hot when we stayed so we had to leave the window open for a little air. However our room backed onto a courtyard and the hostel is very close to Eyre Square so the noise from outside (mainly drunken people singing and seagulls...dear God the seagulls) had us awake most of the night. Not a fault of the hostel of course but if you're looking for a good night's sleep, maybe you could request a quieter room.
Staff were really friendly on check-in and we had no problems getting back into the hostel after ten. Nice atmosphere in the hostel. Liked that I was able to get water from the kitchen before heading to my room.
Room was very hot and there was a bit of noise on the corridor during the night. Both of these I accept as part of the hostel experience!
Everything, clean, convent, breakfast, location. Kinlay has it all.
Location and price
Shared bathroom and little noisy, too many teenagers
The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly (Maria is great!!), the hostel is very clean, I liked the under-the-bed locker storage. I felt safe in the hostel and appreciated the card-access security feature. Breakfast was great-- continental, but a LOT of options! Would definitely stay here again and recommend to others!
The location is fantastic.
Bathrooms were clean. Nice lounge area. Coffee machine.
Bunk mates were rude. Didn't want to talk. Took up all the shelf space. Maybe have a short questionaire about roommates preferred
This is the best hostel i have stayed in. The place has a great atmosphere and the staff are very helpful. The dorms are clean and comfortable. The lounge area is a good place to chill out, watch t.v, go online or have a sing song and play the piano or a guitar with people from around the world. brilliant!!! Its in a great location right on Eyre square and near the coach and train station.Also all the bars and sops around the corner.
Great location and super clean, good breakfast
The hair dryer was a joke
Great hostel!!! Nice staff and great ambiance every night!!!
This is a really wonderful hostel that actually cares about guests, and they do work to make sure everything is right. It's comfortable, breakfast is decent, and the location is spectacular.
Don't rent bikes from these guys. They do a great job with booking you on tours and all the other extras, stick with those.
The workers were fabulous. Jack was wonderful to me when I overslept a tour. We had a coffee and chatted for 2 hours! Other staff members were wonderful as well....their suggestions on restaurants/bars were fabulous. I had a great time!
