  • The Kinlay is an extraordinary hostel, literally the best I've ever been in, I was there first week of the Arts Fest and the staff were so helpful and pleasant, and they put up with me playing guitar and singing over the weekend (thanks guys). Breakfast is great and pool table plays well too haha. I'm genuinely considering going back this weekend for the end of the fest of there's a place available. Very highly recommended! Ed

  • The staff was terrific, and super flexible with my late (almost 3 am) arrival! The breakfast was delicious and unlike a traditional hostel breakfast, cereal, scones, juices, coffee, fruit, toast, etc.! The atmosphere was great at first, but as the hostel closed the day I left (really nice to let the employees have a holiday break with their families for the Christmas holidays) it dwindled towards the end of my stay. Totally understandable though! I would stay here again in a heart beat! : )

  • The shower set up was really strange, but there was a lot of hot water! The staff was friendly and the location was really amazing - less than 5 minutes walk to the bus station, the square, or the pubs in the evening! i loved my stay here, would come back!

  • Best hostel experience i have ever had, by far! Not a single thing to put a finger on. Staff was very friendly and even made sure our group got a dorm completely to ourselves! Would recommend to anyone looking for a pleasant, clean environment to stay while visiting Galway.

  • Very nice vibe in the hostel. The staff was extremely helpful and polite. The hostel has great activities such as our trip to the Aran Islands. It can be very loud in the evening with banging doors and partying. I love the 2 euro lattes in the reception area. would I stay in hostel again? Maybe for 1 night!
