Reviews (6.6 Good)

Good staff that provides a family atmosphere.
I was in a room with 6 beds and 8 people sleeping. Some on the couch. The staff entered in the room at 8:00am to open the windows and started to eat their breakfast just in front of us. They were talking and eating just has if the people weren't there. One staff member was sleeping on the couch and he was snorring really loudly, moving and talking also (while sleeping).
8.0Very goodExpand details
It was a nice staying! I strongly recommend it for short staying! It's a great position and the rooms are good, and the beds are confortable. Some problem with the shared bathroom, thet were just 3 for 3 floors and only 1 shower!!!! But for easygoing people it's great!
Hi! I spent one night in this hostal to visit Cliffs of Moher the next day. The hostal have the perfect situation to visit the center of Galway ( 10 min on foot) or travel around Galway. However I don't recommend this hostal: 1: The receptionist was very rude and disgreeable with me. 2: I slept in a room with 6 people and at 3:00 am they come to the room shouthing and playing music, continuing doing stupid things for 2 hours ( drank people). The next day I told to the receptionist and her phrase was: " It's normal that drunk people come to the hostal, Ireland has that spirit". 3: It was expensive I d0n't recommend this hostal anyone.
If you are a male 20-60 this is the place for you. If you're a female find somewhere else. There is a surprising lack of women staying here, and for a good reason. There is no security and it's overpriced for the lack of accommodations.
