Location. Staff. Breakfast. Girl-only dorm option with bathroom
staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Communal areas where large and well stocked with comfortable seating and bits and bobs to keep you entertained.
I confirmed with the hostel before arrival that our room for 7 people would have a private bathroom - I didn't. The communal men's bathroom was bizzarly laid out so that any passers by could see from through the toilets to the showers from the hall!?! - what ever you're into I guess.
Great value and location
Friendly staff ++, extra security on Saturday night to manage the late night crowd returning to their rooms, great location and easy to access the main part of town, breakfast included. Cages under the bottom bunk for security was handy too. Laundry cleaned and dried for €8.50 which is a great price considering I can't find anything under €10.50 in Dublin. Would stay again for sure.
The duvet was soft as anything, we contemplated taking it because it was so nice!
staff, kitchen, wifi, and the hangout area
The full Irish breakfast ....only joking
We found Kinlay Hostel a joy,staff wonderfully friendly &helpful,great space & entertainment facilities for a family,most comfortable beds,soooo close to everything,would highly recommend it & look forward to staying again. Great brekkie too.
Location was brilliant, WiFi was available throughout the hostel, good value
Breakfast was horrible, staff cleaning up the breakfast counter weren't the most pleasant, toilets quite drab looking but clean
Friendly staff, good location and reasonable value for money
Very drunk people in the communal area and noise in sleeping area despite notices
Could clearly see effort was made to ensure a good stay for residence and toilets were spotless. Great resources and staff service.
Inadequate ventilation in the room and the noise I experianced for about half an hour from a couple in the next room having sexual intercourse. I cannot suggest how this could have been prevented and naturally it's bound to happen but thank Jah I had my headphones to block out this outrageous display of inconciderate behaviour.
Everything great place to stay will be back again
Could use updating their bikes;)
Excellent location, everyone friendly. Breakfast incredibly good, especially considering the price.
I had an issue with the room size and bed linen. Firstly, it was 6 bed female only room. However it was obvious (from the light fittings and sockets) that it was originally designed (and the room size suited this) for a 4 bed. It was very cramped. Secondly, as it was random choice for beds, the staff could not tell who had slept where, and therefore what sheets to change. Two different women slept in one of the beds on the nights I was there. The sheets were not changed in between. How often are the sheets changed? How do the staff know which bed has been used. During the two nights of my stay, one bed was not used at all, and one bed was slept in by a different woman on each night.
Intake staff very friendly and helpful
Question cleanliness, found a pill in the room,not one we recognized!
Excellent value for money. In the heart of galway city, all shops are within maximum 10 minutes walk from the hostel. Great staff, Leo was incredibly helpful. Breakfast is a delight and access to the kitchen facilities is a major plus. Sleep quality is excellent, beds are clean. Wifi is accessible anywhere in and around the hostel.
One bathroom for all roommates.
The staff was very friendly, helpful, and knowledgable about the area. I had originally only booked to stay for one night but each day I kept going back to book another night and ended up staying for 6 nights. During that time, the staff went out of their way on numerous occasions to help me out with anything I needed. They also gave me many suggestions of places to go and things to do which extended my stay in Galway. As well, the hostel was always clean and inviting while having great security. I will definitely be coming back again.
I don't have anything that I didn't like.
Really annoying shower, need to push the button every few seconds or the stream stops
thought it was a great price clean and comfortable staff were very helpful
Lack of toilets
everything, specially the staff
*good location *WIFI was available in the room *nice stuff
*the breakfast was very basic (toast, butter, one type of jam) *car parking was about 5min away *bathroom could use renovation
Staff was very helpful and friendly. Facility was easy to find, parking near by, great location in town. Clean, great breakfast. Very affordable for a family of four.
Clean rooms, good Wi-Fi, helpful staff. I think that Kinlay Hostel is preferable hostel in Galway.
Although smoking is forbidden in the rooms, my roommates did not obey this rule. However, it's not hostel's fault. In my opinion, only negative factor is that poor breakfast.
Very friendly staff, clean rooms, great location, great vibe in the lobby
Onsuite bathroom, free tea and coffee in common room. Really nice people. Bus outside the door to town.
