  • A friendly place. Clean room. Self catering kitchen had most things for warming up food, making lots of free toast (with jam) and endless mugs of tea.

  • I didn't love the cleanliness and I didn't really want to touch anything including the bathrooms. I think this was the place where we could feel all of the wires in the beds, and the noise from the street outside made it difficult to relax and sleep. Otherwise, if you can look past all of that it was a fine hostel, where we managed to rest and get enough sleep.

  • Very good location, near everything. No privacy on shower, glass doors on a mixed shared bathroom.

  • I was in Woodquay Hostel 4 days, last month. It was amazing!! I really felt at home. It's the oldest hostel in Galway! It's clean, confortable and people who works where are good people. I hope to go back early, all the best for Julie and Melania. Hugs !

  • The experience was a total disaster! At night there is no place in the hostel to have a chat or whatever with friends, dirty bathrooms and we have to share the room with a drunk guy who woke up several times in the middle of the night, snored and finished walking naked in the room.

  • We stayed in a double room, which was very small, but clean and quiet. there´s a big kitchen, which can be used by the guests and a common room with tv. the staff was very friendly. There was a light breakfast included. The facilities werre clean. The hostel is located near the city centre, so there are just a few minutes to walk. So, we enjoyed our stay.

  • Woodquay is a special place, it is a 140 y/o building, just ask the owner she will tell you. It smelled of urinals and cigarettes and there is no place to put your valuables. The doors to the room lock, but who knows what kind of crazies you get there. The reception staff is less than helpful, I by far enjoyed the cleaning staff, even though I am not sure how often duvets get washed. Don't bother asking reception anything, if you are lucky you will get the key.
