Check-in was real chill. Jim, the day reception, is an old man and a ledge. Chatting with him in the morning was great. Toast and spreads available for breakfast. Sometimes it's not out in the kitchen and I just go through the cupboards and get it myself so no issue there. Stayed in a female dorm. Room was spacious and... More

Well the bed was okay, it was the cheapest place in Galway, but the whole house was a mess, trash bins hadn't been emptied for a very long time. Breakfast was "provided" - but there was neither coffee nor toast nor cereals to find. The staff was on Skype while the other guests were looking for anything to eat for... More

Overall we had a lot of fun at Nimmos, but that was mainly due to the great group of fellow travelers that we met there. The beds were clean, and the common room was big, but that's about all that can be said for the place. Very noisy room, with drunk guys who werent even staying in our room lumbering... More

The hostes was really nice, but thats it... absolute filth everywhere, the rooms were dirty and the bathrooms not properly cleaned! If you like noisy students than this place will be for you! Im sorry, I felt like if I would say something wrong I would have my head bashed in.

It's not my habit to publish negative reviews but sometimes you have to... Let's start with positive points: - nice manager - good location in the city - low price That's it. What do I need to mention first? Rubbish under the beds? Mixed transparent showers, perfect for privacy? Dirty stairs carpets? Tobacco smells in the premises? Oh and if... More

Prices were cheap (13 euros not too shabby) and there was free breakfast (coffee and toast). Also the location is great. There's places to go out within 5 minutes walking distance. All in all a fun time and a recommendation to anyone who is spending some time in Galway.

I followed the signs to reception and it was this man with a notepad! He was the most happy, colorful well travelled Irishman I have ever met, happy and perfectly charming. The facilities were great, the wifi was amazing, and the kitchen had a spice rack! Nor to mention the place was clean and had the most homey atmosphere! I... More

We arrived mid afternoon after a 250mile drive, as soon as we walked to the front door there was a strong smell of piss. Then discovered our group of... More

Stayed in then10 bed room which was such a tight squeeze. No curtain on the window, had to leave the windows open due to the stifling heat generated by 10 people, hard to sleep through all the noise outside. The bathrooms were an experience, hard not to get very intimate with fellow hostellers. Seen a lot through the frosted glass... More
