Why pay for a hotel
If all you want is a place to stay that's comfortable and convenient, this hostel fills every need. It's unbelievably convenient--around the corner from the train station and major bus stops and more or less in the old section of Galway. It's clean and well run and pleasant. The staff is friendly and very helpful. So why pay three or four times as much for a downscale hotel room?

convenient
This was a convenient spot in galway and the staff was super friendly. Met some lovely people staying in the room. Spent more time exploring than in the venue. Nice to have computers and public space but that space seemed to be occupied fully most of the time I passed thru. I didnt realize that children under the age of 5 were allowed in hostels and another in my room commented that it was a trend. I dont particularly enjoy beig around screaming children who run around without any supervision attempting to play with a pool table they cant even reach. Blame the parents on this more than the kids but it left me disappointed to not be able to participate in the typical communal setting of a hostel. This place also seemed to host a giant group so personally I would attempt to find a place a bit smaller on my next trip. If I had wanted to cook, the kitchen was very crowded and finding a place to sit during breakfast was challenging. Being gluten free a continental breakfast of cereal and toast doesnt cut it so it wasnt that big of a deal - but missed out on lovely morning conversations. I also forget that many places do not have a/c or fans in the room so in the height of summer it is quite miserable to sleep with a window that barely opens. Only an overhead light and really randomly placed flourescents on one side of room not near my bed. Not enough outlets for everyone to charge their devices.
