What a good hostel!”

I stayed in a female dorm. There's an ensuite bathroom, a closet, a desk, and a chair. It's like a hotel room. The room is quite spacious. There's an elevator so i really like it. The breakfast was excellent: bread, jam, cake, muffin, cereal, fresh milk, juice, tea, and coffee. The location is walkable from the bus terminal, right in front of the Eyre Square. You can walk to a lot of places around the city from the hostel

Cool Hostel and great location”

I have been traveling around Europe for 3 months. This is one of the best hostel in Europe so far (from my experience). I mean over all the best. Friendly staffs and service mind. The room is good size and the kitchen maybe small but it's ok. The location is awesome because it just right at the centre. The restroom is enough The night shift man is so kind to me as i have to leave early morning and i am going to missed my breakfast so he just went to the kitchen and packed me some breakfast.SO kind. because some place they don't care but this is what is hospitality business is all about. Caring, service mind and flexible to make your customers have the best experience with you. Thanks guys.

A good place to spend time in Galway”

I like that the hostel arrange different kind of events every day. The breakfast was the best from all of the hostels that I've ever stayed with. Just one annoying incident from those who stayed in the next room. They're so loud & drunk after the Thursdays' Pub Crawling. They banged the door and were shouting at 2 or 3 AM.

Awesome hostel!”

High security, awesome staff, great environment!

This really was one of the greatest hostels I have stayed at! The staff was awesome and the security was really on top of it late at night, but in a cool and friendly way. The breakfast was pretty good (for a free hostel breakfast) - scones! The staff really made the stay here memorable though because they were so friendly and helpful. They can also book tours for you downstairs and it's like a 3 minute walk from both the bus station and Shop St where all the bars are, but just far enough that it was quiet at night if you wanted to stay in. The whole place was SO CLEAN which was nice. It was certainly on the pricy side but for what you get, it seemed worth it.

I‘ve met so many amazing people in there! Many of those who live there. The hostel is perfectly clean, all the time. The rooms are very well thought through and the breakfast is amazing! Would 100% recommend it and stay there again. Btw: I forgot my towel in my room and they sent it to my next accomodation free of charges

Y algunos productos como el pan de soda estaban añejos el primer día que me alojé. De resto, en cuanto a servicios y atención de los chicos es Perfecto!

快適でした:)”

まずバスで到着する人が殆どだと思うんですが、バスストップからホステルまでの距離がめちゃくちゃ近いです。歩いて1分ぐらい。 今回10人部屋に宿泊しましたが、カーテンで仕切りがあるので、そんなに周りは気になりませんでした。ただいびきをかく人がいるので、耳栓は必須です笑 10人部屋にシャワールームが1つしかないので、共用部分にあるシャワールームを使っていました。そこはややマイナス点でした。 ベッドにUSB充電とコンセントが付いているので、最悪変換プラグなしでも充電はできます。 Wi-Fiもストレスなく使えました。 レセプションの人もめちゃくちゃ協力的で、オススメのレストランを聞いたり、航空券の印刷もしてもらいました。 水やお菓子の自販機があったり、レセプションにはアメニティ類も販売しているので、タオルを忘れたりしても、お金で解決できます笑 朝食も簡易的ですが、この値段で朝食があること自体素晴らしいと思います。 場所がいいのでどこに行くのも快適です。 市内の主要観光スポットは全て歩いて行けます。 ツアーバスなどが出てるコーチステーションもすぐなので、ずっと快適でした。
