  • A very cosy, cheap hostel. Perfect location. Even if you sleep in a 14 dorm room it it ok.

  • Would be nice if the quests could turn on music. And it terms of temperature, it was quite hot all over the building.

  • We were overall pretty disappointed. We booked a private room but the hallways were extremely loud at all hours making sleep basically impossible. We would go out all day and sometimes at night as well and then come back to go to sleep only to be awakened multiple times at 3 or 4 in the morning due to excessive noise. Also, there was no hot water which put a damper on the stay as well. The staff were greatly helpful and able to answer all questions.

  • I think they should make WIFI available in all rooms. Never had a hot shower and that was disappointing. Location is not amazing but probably could be worse. Walls are very, very thin and when you sleep on the top bunk and someone on the floor above drops a penny, you will think the world is ending. Breakfast could have had more selection. Overall just pretty average. Staff were nice. Room was clean.

  • I'm honestly a little confused as to why this place got such high ratings for location...it's situated pretty much on a commuter train track!! The train screams by the window all night and wakes everyone up so make sure you bring ear plugs. That being said, the hostel really isn't bad, but it could be better. The wifi only works in the entry room and there aren't a lot of good places to relax, just your bed. Also, age range is mostly 17-18 which was a little young for me/people that wanted slee,

  • Friendly staff and clean facilities! The staff checks every persons receipt as you enter at night and access to each floor requires a room key that corresponds to that specific floor which made us feel quite safe . They have a lot of resources to help you explore the city (we recommend the Cliffs of Moher tour that stops in Galway). They have great blow dryers which was a nice change and offer a light breakfast in the morning. Met a lot of cool people while traveling here.
