I had the pleasure of staying at this hostel while excavating in Galway during the months of January and February this year. The building is decorated in an appealing industrial style and was maintained spotlessly clean. The bedrooms are large, comfortable and for me personally had the pleasant option of shutting down the heating. The common area contains a wood stove, a welcome sight after a cold day outside. A generous breakfast is provided that is the perfect preparation for such days. However, for me the nicest thing about the Nest hostel must be the staff. Friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and involved, they make it seem more like a stay at a friend's. I travel a fair bit for work and this is one of the best places where I have stayed. I highly recommend it.
The hostel is beautiful. From the building itself that has the shape of the typical house in the area to the reception. The common area is very well decorated and very modern, ideal for relaxing and chatting with background music and a very good atmosphere. The rooms are beautiful, upon entering our room we find it illuminated with beautiful coloured lights that gave it a very romantic air. They are also spacious, clean and very comfortable rooms and the bathrooms are very large and clean too. The reception staff is very friendly and helpful, whatever you need you can ask. Breakfast is served in the kitchen, which you can use if you want to cook something, and it is very complete. The location of the hotel is very good since walking in 3 minutes you reach the pubs area and…
Great hostel, super kind staff, clean and with great amenities. Location is a 15/20 min walk to the city centre, but there are plenty of pubs/restaurants near the hostel so it doesn't feel far.
The hostel is located close to the promenade in Salthill with easy access to the City Cente. The staff were really sound and friendly and the hostel itself was immaculately clean with a very chilled vibe in the common areas. 10/10 recommend.
Fab hostel! Beautiful rooms and decor, it felt really homely and cosy and everything was really clean. Staff were helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great! Would definitely recommend!
Really nice hostel with friendly staff and walkable distance to town. The room we stayed in was great, and the kitchen facilities were incredible. The breakfast they serve in the mornings was super yummy. There’s a shared living area with boardgames to keep you occupied in nasty weather. Would stay again.
Funky style. Modern. Very Clean. Boutique style rooms. Friendly staff. Great coffee. Great atmosphere. And I felt safe travelling alone. Would 100% recommend and stay here again. LOVED IT
