  • The best choice to stay in Galway for a few days!! Cheap and in the city center. Moreover, there is a good kitchen, and every morning, there is free breakfast!

  • It's impossible to sleep before 2 o'clock because of the noise in a pub in front of the hostel. Sheets are dirty. There isn't any security. Every client of the hostel can access any camera.

  • The guy who run the hostel was unfriendly, creepy and scary. He did not take us serious. For what we got 25€ per night was way too expensive!!!!!! I would not even stay there without paying ever again. We were so glad when we finally could leave. It also smelled bad. Whatever, we survived it...luckily. I have never seen such a disgusting and dirty place that is allowed to call itself a hostel in my life -> unbelievable.

  • I'd mention that since there are a few pubs around the area is a bit noisy, but very good overall. Landlord has been very kind and friendly.

  • Heavy rain caused ongoing water leak coming thru top floor bedroom ceiling. Loud noise frm nearby bars/clubs into early hours disrupts sleep so maybe thicker glazed windows? Bedrooms should only be accessible to guests assigned to their own particular room and maybe combination codelock at Main Entrance should be updated daily in the interests of security. More Common Use facilities like TV/Pool/Bookcase/Boardgames/Vending machines/PC for Internet. Cheer up the entrance hall/stairwells as shabby

  • If you need a cheap accommodation, then nimmos is the best. Kitchen is good. Toilet is not that much clean.

  • We don't agree with the idea of a Roman numeral security lock on the door! Although we know the basics, the door wouldn't open. Very loud at night despite the windows being closed. We'd prefer that rooms were same sex. On the plus side the beds were reasonably comfortable. Stairs and landing are very untidy and the place could do with a big refreshment. Of course it was value for the little money we paid for the night but could really see how this place would benefit for a little TLC
