We stayed in one of the apartments. The room was very dirty, especially the bed. Otherwise ok.

Overall a good hostel, although if you are looking for the cool hostel vibe, I'm not sure if this is the place. It seems to be the hostel for a ton of groups (most of which are young kids), and it completely ruins the atmosphere. Otherwise the kitchen is good (once you maneuver through the kids) and the rooms are nice. Staff was great

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for the feedback. We take bookings from all sources.Occasionally that can be a group (even a group of kids) In this case it was one group of 34 out of over 200 guests that night - but we know it seemed like they had taken over the place. Sorry about that. The vibe is different most nights with lots of room in our large self-catering kitchen and other common areas. Sleepzone

The breakfast was handy. Just toast and cereal, but it's free! The location is pretty good too, within walking distance of everything. It's a bit hard to find at first because it's kind of on a back road. No lockers, which was the only downside.

I stayed in a room for 6 with 5 friends, the room was way too small for 6 people. The bunk beds were just too small that you couldn't sit up in them! But overall I was very happy with the hostel! The staff are very friendly and helpfull! The no curfew rule is great for those who like to go out during the night, I will defiantly stay here again, great hostel!

We really enjoyed the warm welcome and atmosphere from the staff (multiple origins, knowledgeable in whatever we asked about local pubs, things to discover, things not to miss...) Very efficient and respectful "cleaning team of ladies" around the kitchen (even if we were always later than 10am !)

Good hostel: clean, cheap and near to the center! You can choose to have an only female/male dorm: I appreciate that. And to have a shower in the room is very convenient. The staff is very friendly!

Loved it! Spacious, clean, quiet, great kitchen. 5-10min walk to two large supermarkets! About 5 or minute walk into the main drag of Galway. Clean shower! Always a plus!!

I stayed for five days at Sleepzone and did not encountered any problem, with my room mates who happened to be mostly different persons everyday. Here I understood the value of a hostel like this where people from everywhere stayed for a short time on their way to their destinations, whether it is for business, as a tourist or for any other reasons. Also this is a convenient place where people who travel in group can stay. Great place to meet people from around the world.
