Woodquay Hostel
Ranked #41 of 60 Speciality Lodging in Galway
Reviewed 15 April 2016

A group of us stayed here for our weekend trip in Galway city. It provided all the basics and was good value for money. It had a community feel to it. Only downside was there were not enough showers for the amount of people staying there and you'd have to queue for awhile.

worm and nice cool staff,clean kichen and toilets..good fun .The staff was so helpful and around 24/7. They answered all hundred of my questions with a smile. Good atmosphere/backpacker vibe at this hostel. International staff are former travellers themselves.
Good mix of tourists and longer term guests.

Staff was very nice and friendly to me, the room was nice and clean and I ended sharing the room with 4 people instead of 6. Bathrooms also clean, and as others said, the fact that they include some kind of breakfast is really nice. Ended up having nice little chats with other guests, which were very nice on breakfast. It is also pretty well positioned in Galway, just 5 minuted from Eyre Square and the Train/Bus Station.

Was unable to use the Free Wifi they provide, but other than that, really happy with this place.

the staff were very bubbly and helpful, and the rooms were clean and tidy, the bathrooms were quite run down but everything was in working order. Very pleased with the value for money. The breakfast was quite basic, but again, i didnt even expect to be served breakfast in the first place so its still a plus in my book. In short, pleasant stay at this hostel

Room Tip: great location, cheap, good value

I stayed in a private room with friends and the facilities were great , bed sheets were lovely , bathroom very clean , with a fully functioning shower. The price was brilliant and the location was even better. Would definitely return as the staff were super friendly.)
