    Don´t go there!
    I reserved room with private bathroom for 2 nights and that was a mistake.
    Yes, we had private bathroom but there was really strong smell of mould. There was odd smell in the bed also. For this reason we had to keep window open and Galway is quite lively place by night so didn´t sleep much... I usually don´t complain about places where I stay but this was something very special. And if you go there prepare to do your dishes after breakfast.

    OK. I have to say something positive about this place; it is advantageous, it is situated very centrally and the staff is very frendly.

    "The Happiest Hostel in Galway"


    This hostel is very easy to get to, as it's just across the street from the combination bus depot and train station. They don't take reservations - just walk in and see if there are any openings. I've stayed there twice in the summer of 2003. Once I was in a room of 14 bunks for about 12 euro, and once in an en-suite room of four bunks for 20 euro. I actually greatly preferred the larger room, as there was more conversation and camraderie among the occupants.

    Access to the hostel is by buzzer and the front desk is staffed 24/7.

    The hostel has cooking facilities, but the combination kitchen/dining room is also the only place in the hostel where smoking is permitted. So if you're a non-smoker like me you may find it a little unpleasant to be in clouds of smoke while cooking and eating. But such is the price we pay when travelling on the cheap.

    There's also internet access in the dining room at pay terminals, but they didn't work (you can ask for your money back at the front desk) and there are cheaper places in town anyway.

    (Do you like this tip? Please rate it, thanks!)

    Directions: Across the street from the train and bus station, overlooking the main town square.
