Positive Reviews

Convenient location in Galway

This hostel offers a great location in the centre of Galway. Guests report that the bus and train stations are a short walk and the shops and restaurants around Eyre Square are nearby. Guests also like the fact that they can book tours at reception to sights such as Connemara, the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher. Conveniently, these tours pick-up and drop-off guests at the hostel.

Great accommodation

Guests find little fault with the accommodation at this hostel. The facilities are good and the standard of cleaning is high. Also, guests appreciate the friendly and helpful manner of the staff members.

Good value for money

Guests are pleased with the price they paid to stay at this hostel. The room rates are very reasonable compared to other options in Galway and many guests wouldn't hesitate to return here.

Negative Reviews

Issues with the dorms

Guests would like to see more plugs in the dorms. Some dorms only provide two or three plugs between six people and this can be inconvenient for guests who need to charge their phones. Guests also feel that the dorms are on the small side and don't offer enough storage space. The management points out that free safes are available at reception to store valuables.

Beds a little uncomfortable

Guests didn't always find the beds particularly comfortable. They mention that the mattresses can be quite hard and that some bunks are a little unsteady to the point that they were worried they might tip over when climbing onto the top bed.

Breakfast not the best

According to feedback, the free breakfast is lacking in variety. While guests acknowledge that it is free, they would like to see more choice rather than just toast and cereals.
