Nothing but good things to say. It was a great value. The staff were very knowledgeable about the city and very friendly. Breakfast was actually pretty good with plenty of variety. There was free wi-fi pretty much throughout the hostel. I stayed in a 6 bed dorm with an en suite bathroom. It was very clean and nice. Security was excellent. And the location could not be better. You are just around the corner from the bus and train station, and it is easy to walk anywhere you'd want to go in the city. I highly recommend this hostel!

Went on a weekend to Galway with a group of college friends. The hostel is in the dead centre of Galway on Eyer Square. A short walk to the train, bus starion, bars and many restaurants. Couldn't find fault with the location. The staff were sooooo helpful and friendly. The place is spotless. Great atmosphere. Super cooking facilities. Breakfast was just what you needed. The bedrooms were a little stuffy but that probably couldn't be avoided given it was July. Overall fab visit. Would recommend the hostel to anyone. Great for groups, loan travellers and even families. Once again thanks guys for a fab weekend!!!!

The place has pretty much everything you could possibly need from a hostel and more. Great facilities, clean, welcoming staff, welcoming atmosphere, comfortable rooms and a perfect location. Went with a group of 8 and it was just great. If you're looking to spend a few nights in Galway, don't even bother looking elsewhere.

Beautiful facilities, very clean, great breakfast, the nicest staff ever and a fantastic location. Rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable and they are strict about 'quiet time' in the hallways. Every recommendation they gave me for food or activities was wonderful. It is so comfortable and friendly. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Brilliant place!! We stayed for two nights. It was quiet, well organised, clean and the staff are super awesome. The kitchen is immense. We cooked a group dinner for 30 and all the equipment we needed was there good to. I would highly recommend using this hostel.
