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.
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.
