Being right next to the coach station and on the main road can be a little noisy - but hey...it is what it is! Last nights' sleep was ruined by a loud mouth American female who had more alcohol than she could handle and was a disturbance - had it been my first night, she would have had a few naughty words thrown in her direction.
Front of desk staff were all fantastic and friendly - Katie and Laura who have the most amazing of Irish accents to die for :) Rooms are as stated, nice comfortable mattress, everything is clean and tidy. Breakfast is included in the price. Coach station and the town centre is right next door for convenience!!!
Everything was great, just as we had the room on third floor, the wifi connection was a little bit weak up there. Nothing to really limit the usage, but it took a bit longer to connect and it made skyping from the balcony impossible.
We liked everything, this place was perfect. The staff, location right next to the central bus station and the facilities.. This may be the best hostel I have ever seen.
They should clean the bathroom in the bedrooms during the staying.
Great location and great staff.
It was a handy hostel since it is near the City Center.
The water in the shower was not enough hot but this is the only con I can find.
Nothing is missing and the staff is lovely.
No TV, but realized it wasn't really needed.
The cleanliness and the atmosphere of the whole place was so friendly and safe feeling.
Room quite small for the number of people in it.
Great common area. Friendly. En-Suite rooms.
The slamming doors of other guests on the floor are constant, so better ring earplugs (or get them at the reception which is offered for free) or get ready for a short night.
Renee at the reception was outstanding: knowledgeable about the whereabouts in town, lots of recommendations and a great attitude, location is great for those traveling by bus and wanting a little bit of the buzz of the night life if this student city. Breakfast is very simple, sufficient as the first fuel for the day, however, if you like your breakfast complete, rather plan with one of the cafes nearby.
They only have one energy plug per room. :( Ps: As a personal tip I'd suggest you to double check your clothes before just saying 'yes' to tumbler dry. But again, that was my fault.
Amazing... From the location next to the bus station, to the cleanliness and delicious smell on the corridors. Breakfast is good. Staff always helpful. Also they had some Wii or playstation available at the reception (though I didn't have time to check and can't be sure it was free) that I really found cool. :)
The €20 security deposit was unexpected as we weren't aware of it before arrival.
Overall perfect hostel would definitely recommend it
Breakfast too simple
Stuff Facality Staying Experience Location
Great location, staff were very helpful and friendly, brilliant facilities, very comfortable. Travelling with a group of friends and couldn't fault a thing.
Location price and friendliness of staff
Great location in Galway city, walking distance from the city center, and only 5 minutes walk to Shop street, highly recommended
Even the double room was a bit bare bones and industrial, but we expected this with a hostel. Not much to complain about.
The staff was super helpful, thorough, and nice. They really did a good job. The location right next to the bus terminal was very convenient for us as we had an early departure the next day. It is also not far from the central square or the shopping streets.
No outlets in bedrooms. Since it is kind of a bigger hostel, the hangout room and hallways can get kind of loud. Shower wasn't the cleanest but wasn't horrible.
Big hostel with lots of space to hang out and eat. Fully stocked kitchen with spices and some free food. Rooms are comfy. Staff is extremely nice and helpful!
Loved the stay. Staff great, room was bit small, but had all we needed.
One thing I wasn't as happy with was the breakfast. I heard there was a free breakfast but I thought it was a full irish breakfast, but we did get cereal and toast so it was still ok.
I stayed in this hostel with my boyfriend and we really enjoyed it. The room was very clean, we had access to wifi and the staff were very friendly.
my bed was next to the window and it was pretty cold there breakfast - not much option
30 seconds to the coach station where all the tours begin staffs were very friendly
Probably my own fault that I didn't research the hostel properly, but I found it catered to business travelers and students and, as such, found myself in a hostel where I couldn't really connect with people (which is my primary purpose as a solo traveler in staying at a hostel rather than a b&b or a hotel).
Nice, bright, good kitchen and lounge, comfy beds.
The beds, mattresses
The staff, the price, the facilities
Staff were very helpful and we wished we could have stayed longer
Super staff. The staff were very knowledgeable about Galway and other areas of Ireland. Relaxed atmosphere.
Didn't got the morning tea as promise. Staff member who work that time told me he just clean the kitchen so can't use it.
