Superb 9.0 From 139 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Room was clean and spacious. The staff was really great and had some amazing recommendations. My only issue was that it was very noisy you could hear everyone coming and going on your floor all hours of the day and there was no tv.

Lovely comfortable ensuite room in a central location. No noise and a continental style breakfast. Great value for money.

Everything we wanted and more
Exceeded our expectations. Tastefully decorated and comfortable room with everything we needed. Delicious breakfast of pastries and coffee with friendly and helpful staff. Salthill itself is great for restaurants and places to have a drink without being in the super touristy (but still lovely) parts of Galway. Lovely 20 minute walk into town along the coast.

Beautiful hostel. Great service and cracking breakfast close to Galway centre with free parking. Would happily stay here again!
Alison, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
The breakfast was a bit poor, no juice and only marmalade on toast bread. Good with fresh fruits. The breakfast logistics were confusing.
ie1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Pretty good overall
Everything was great except we found what looked like a blood stain on the underside of the duvet cover. I’m sure the service would have been wonderful and switched it out for us but the concierge desk closes at 11pm but we didn’t discover the blood until later than that. We ended up flipping the duvet and everything was fine. All in all a minor problem, but it was a gross inconvenience.

Great Hostel
Lovely staff, great breakfast, and clean spaces. It's a bit of a walk to the core of Galway, but worth it for the price.

Great stay at The Nest
We loved our stay at The Nest The staff were great and the room was clean and designed with upscaled materials. The breakfast in the morning was great. There are pubs and restaurants close by. We would stay again.
