Ireland - Best student hostels and B&Bs

I'm looking for reputable, safe student accommodations near either bus or train stations for two very responsible college students. They will be in each town (Dublin, Killarney, Galway, Shannon, Belfast) for about 3-4 days each and would share a room. Availability to a kitchen would be ideal, but the most important things are location to public transportation, safety, and price. I welcome any and all advice! Thank you!

Shannon is a town built round the Airport and surrounding industry. Use Ennis http://www.rowantreehostel.ie/

Galway http://www.sleepzone.ie/ possibly not the closest to the bus/train station which might be http://www.snoozleshostelgalway.ie/

Killarney, probably http://www.neptuneshostel.com/

Dublin, I use the Generator but that might be too far out being Smithfield area

Belfast. Global Village is in the Queens Quarter but never stayed there.

In Galway, check out the Salmon Wier hostel. It is walking distance to the main town and a nice friendly hostel with some private rooms.

http://www.snoozleshostelgalway.ie/ great place, we were there during two festivals and lodging was full so stayed here and loved it. They give great discounts on day tours also. Bus station very close by.

https://generatorhostels.com/en/destinations/dublin/ very close to an apartment we are renting and the luas stops right there for easy transportation, nice area and not a far walk to temple bar.

Forgot there was a couple on our Game of Thrones tour that were staying here.

http://www.vagabondsbelfast.com/ The driver dropped them off and asked how they like it the hostel and they said it was good. I like staying closer to City Hall and Victoria station. Travelodge and Premiere Inn have good rates so would check them also.
