  • 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.

  • 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.
