Lovely hostel by Galway Bay
Lovely hostel, super close to Galway Bay. 20 min walk into the centre. If you walk along the front, you get a gorgeous view that made us happy to have chosen accommodation out of the main centre. The room was clean & comfy, the staff were friendly & helpful, & breakfast was lush. Thank you!

Good 6.0
Quite an expensive hostel
I think overall the hostel has some positive points; the level of cleanliness and modern facilities are good and the breakfast was equally good. The double room was a good size and noise levels were low. What I wasn't so keen on was the location (it's about a half an hour walk to the city centre) and I thought some of the water rationing facilities (i.e. The shower) were frankly annoying and didn't add up to a particularly comfortable stay. The price given for a double room in a hostel was expensive and the price probably suited a hotel more. It was good for backpackers, but I don't think it's made for city breaks.

Lovely base for visiting Galway
Perfect place as a base for seeing Galway. Staff were lovely, rooms and communal areas very clean and nicely decorated, and the breakfast super nice!!
