  • Manager for most part runs a busy city hostel all alone during peak Summer tourist season. He looks after reception arrivals, general cleaning, sort out changing of beds/laundry, handle waste/recycling, offer advice and there all the time. Lack of basic facilities as hostel needs All New Windows throughout, Electric Dishwasher and new delf in Kitchen . Hostel should provide Free Breakfast, Computer for Guests w/Free Internet, More Common Room Space for Guests incl.Cable TV/Games Room, Sauna

  • Holes in the bedroom walls. I never got a key for my bedroom. The staff is almost non existent, it took me forever to check in because there was no one there. For a night, its not bad especially because its in a good spot in Galway, but I wouldn't recommend.

  • Second stay at Nimmos and i'll go back there this weekend. You need a place to go to have some craic in Galway on the weekend, go there. It won't be really quiet in some rooms because of the pubs just near the hostel but it doesn't matter when you feel like home and can have a chat with every people staying there at the same time. Jim is an awesome genuine man and the rooms and bathrooms are always clean. I'll probably go there every weekend during my stay in Ireland, so hope to see you there.

  • 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.
