Famous among backpackers
This is the hostel where we stayed on our trip to Galway. It's famous among backpackers, spacious, and comfortable. There are pool tables, a terrace with barbecue pits, a huge kitchen, and a room with armchairs and boardgames to play, watch TV, or hang out with your computer. The rooms have bunk beds, and some have private bathrooms and showers. Some floors, however, have communal bathrooms. The staff are very friendly although drinking alcohol is not permitted. They did, though, let us sneak in beers disguised as a pitcher of tea!
