Sleepzone is one of the best hostels I've been during my trip around Ireland! The staff is friendly and helpful and seem to enjoy there work, in contrast to staff in a lot of other hostels I've been. You can use a lot of common stuff in the kitchen and a free breakfast, where the staff is ready to clean the kitchen all the time. Moreover, the security is really good, reception opened 24/7 and they are in the middle of the centrum. In weekdays, the price is incredibly low!


Staff extremely helpful and friendly


No noise isolation on the windows --> cold and noisy (Hostel surrounded with students residency) . As we were staying in the flat, the room's wall was close by a Car park with the gate opening early in the morning at each car driving out.

Great and convenient location, walking distance to train station. Only stayed one night to check out Cliffs of Moher, but there were a lot of main attractions within walking distance to hostel.


This place rocks, the staff were so welcoming on arrival. They informed me about all the great bands that were playing in the music venues and where was good to grab a bite to eat. WiFi is no problem as it is provided through out the building. I found the cleanliness exemplary and enjoyed the free breakfast in the morning.


Very good


The hostel was great overall, very clean and very friendly helpful staff! It's not in the city centre, but I preferred it that way, it was quiet and still only 5 minute walk to everything... Kitchen was big, well organized and very clean. Lots of stuff to read, or watch a movie or just chill at one of the lounges downstairs...great place. Because the hostel is so big, the atmosphere seemed a bit impersonal, but it was alright.


The hostel is very nice! The kitchen is perfect! The only thing I would say is that it gets little noisy on the streeet at night when you open the window.


good location and good facilities


Very busy and bustling but well run, with a large, functional kitchen/dining area.

We liked Sleepzone so much we added two nights to our stay. Very clean, staff were helpful and made some great recommendations of what to do in Galway. Free toast and cereal every morning. The only drawback was the loud drunk people on the road below.


Excellent hostel, staff and facilities, thank you.


Everything is good except that it would be really really noisy in the mid night. Drank people shout and sing outside of the hostel in the street right in front of the hostel almost everyday from 1am to 3am. Just be prepared with ear plugs.


As always, the staff was amazing, the place was very clean and welcoming = a perfect place to stay in Galway for a long or a short period of time!


The staff was extremely charming, helpful, and knowledgeable. The only downsides we encountered were the noise level in the courtyard after dark and having to change rooms every night of our 3 night stay.


A big shout-out to Sleepzone for a wonderful stay. The facilities are just fab; free computers, WiFi throughout, free towels and breakfast included.


Always very nice and helpful staff, very good contact with the hostel and free coffee and tea during the whole stay.


What a cracking hostel! I got my bed for €9.99 with breakfast included, what's not to love!?


Very expensive for the service provided. 25 euros a night to have a slice of bread and jam full of butter with one spoon to share. only 3 plugs for the room. No locker in the room. It was ok for my space but other girls did not have space for luggage or small luggage in the room.

The price you paid was actually less than €25 a night and for that we provide a continental breakfast which includes tea/coffee, toast, jams and cereals; free towels, free internet and the rooms are Wi-Fi enabled.You chose the large 10bed dorm which is obviously busier than the smaller dorms but we do have luggage storage options both in our luggage room and in safe deposit boxes at reception (free if you bring your own lock).
