"Woodquay Hostel" Woodquay Hostel Tip by thunderbox

Woodquay Hostel, Galway: 132 reviews and 1 photos


$13. They only take cash, no credit cards.

Unique Qualities: This place was strange, as in Psycho strange. The owner did a nice job in decorating, the walls are all painted in cheerful colors and the flowerboxes are overflowing from the windows. However, once you walk in you won't be able to pass by the leering man over in the corner. I think he may be the owner's son. He's akin to Nomran Bates. He seemed to always be around the corner when we stayed there. Also, he was really grumpy before his late afternoon Guinness break.
Other than Norman, the place was alright, but I probably wouldn't reccomend it. We went there as a last resort. The rooms are really cramped and they're co-ed. It's disturbing to wake up staring into the face of some big, hairy, bare-chested man falling out of the bunk right next to you.
