Great value and COOL!”

The staff was wonderful, was very clean and the design/decor was very cool. For a hostel, it wasn't that noisy either besides hearing your neighbors come home at night, but otherwise it was fine and got quiet again after they settled in. Also a wonderful perk was free breakfast with coffee and tea every morning, they had a great spread!!! My husband and I stayed in a double en-suite studio which was very clean and adorable. Our only word of caution perhaps, is that the room was so small the bathroom was literally right next to the head of the bed and the door to the bathroom doesn't close completely (leaves about an inch of space as it's a sliding door). So, you get REAL up close and personal when your roomie needs to use the toilet. It was actually pretty funny, but if anyone has concerns about that maybe ask the staff ahead of time if there is an en-suite room that's a bit more spread out. Overall we had a wonderful stay!!

Awesome place with awesome people ”

Cute hostel, about 15-20 mins walk to the city centre, super convenient. Private room was incredible, super cosy and breakfast and lounge area was perfect for the short stay we had. Would definitely stay there again.

Great stay”

We stayed here during a road trip through Ireland. The rooms were nice, spacious and had a great price. Even access to a large kitchen in the ground floor.

Pros: Good cafe/restaurant Clean Nice room Great shower Cons: if central Galway is what you want, this is a bit out of the way.
