  • Nice staff, friendly people. it is a small lovely place in the heart of Galway. It is clean and all the facilities I had what I needed. I recommend it to everyone who doesn`t want spiritless huge hostels. Good value.

  • I highly recommend Salmon Weir Hostel. It is only 5 min. walking from Galway Bus Station. Since I arrived there I immediately felt its friendly atmosphere, the staff showed me all the facilities and even introduce to me other guests, it made me feel in comfortable and safe environment. This Hostel is clean, tidy and such a valuable option for any kind of budget.

  • We were in a 6 bed mixed that definitely should have had 2 less beds. Two people couldn't move around at one time and there was far too little luggage space (and there were only 4 small lockers instead of 6). Beds were rickety and not the best, but for the price we paid that was to be expected. Showers were questionable but at least hot water! Kitchen was really nice and we loved having access to seasonings for food! Location was decent, about 10 min from train station and 10 from Shop St.
