Fantastic hostel!! Right on Eyre Square. Spotlessly clean. Amazing staff. Well run. I could not find fault at all. I couldn’t recommend highly enough and I will certainly be back.

Nicest hostel I stayed in on my trip in Ireland! I spent two nights here while in Galway travelling solo. The staff was very friendly and showed me the best place to park my car. The location was close to where the tour buses came/went from and also to the Latin Quarter. They organized social events every night to bring people together, which was great. The bathrooms were clean, and the rooms were as well. Also – they had a great breakfast selection with coffee, fruit, fresh scones, and cereal.

This is easily the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in, well deserves the title of best hostel in Europe. Amazing facilities, great dorm room and bathrooms much cleaner than my college dorms. The kitchen/common area is also great. What really sets this apart from other hostels are the staff. They’re super helpful and friendly – a lot of them are travellers themselves that decided to stay in Galway for a few months and it’s fun to pick their brains about other places they’ve wandered. The hostel organizes dinners or pub crawls every night which is a good way to meet people. Shoutout to Brian who is really cool and makes amazing playlists.

I’ve tried every Galway hostel and they really go above and beyond here. The common room is loaded with outlets, pillows, blankets, everything you might need to get comfortable. Every dorm bed has a light, locker and outlet. Breakfast is a step up from the usual cereal toast and coffee, with fresh baked brown bread, scones, juice, soy milk and a wide variety of teas joining the mix.

Friendly staff, delicious breakfast, very good location, comfortable beds. Book tours with them, you’ll get a fair price and an excellent tour. Cleanliness was on a next level. I recommend to go to a pub crawl with them. We had such a great time. If I could give 6 stars I would!!
