Thank you for taking the time to leave us some feedback. Glad to hear that overall you enjoyed our hostel. Although we do not currently have lockers in the rooms, we do have some small lockers by Reception which are free to use with your own padlock. We also offer larger, electronic - coin operated lockers in our luggage room. We wish you all the best for your onward travels.

It is really well thought out. There are many little lounge areas to make the place seem more intimate. The staff was extremely helpful helping me figure out activities to do and great local places to eat. It took a while for the hot water to heat up in the shower but when it did, it was super hot!! Towels are included!

Dorm with ensuite was a decent size. Laundry is about €7 for washing and drying with soap provided. The kitchen is a good size but during my stay the guests using it were very messy and left dirty dishes everywhere. The downstairs rooms have lots of comfy couches and outlets. "Breakfast" was the most basic out of any hostel I've ever been in: bread, butter and jam. Worth staying in because it's so inexpensive.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with some thoughtful feedback. Glad to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay with us. During the winter period when our room rates are discounted, we offer a basic breakfast of tea/coffee, milk, toast and spreads. During the evening periods, the kitchen can get busy when multiple guests are cooking dinner. We do try our best to keep the communal areas as tidy as possible for all of our guests. We hope to see you again in the future.

Before booking section of choosing a bedroom you better ask ppl, "do you snore?" and then split by snoring and @non-snoring@ bedrooms :P Thank you!

Thank you for your feedback, I wish we could offer that option for guests! Sorry to hear that you experienced some snoring in your room, this can sometimes arise when staying in shared dormitories. We encourage all of our guests to report any issues to Reception during their stay so we have the opportunity to help at the time. We can also provide ear plugs on request. We wish you well for the future.

Th stay was really nice, the only point i would change was the breakfast, other hostels offer more variety than toast and coffee.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Great to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. During the winter period when are rates are discounted, we generally only offer a 'light' breakfast of toast, selection of spreads, tea/coffee and milk. We do also have a fully equipped, self catering kitchen should guests wish to prepare their own breakfast. Enjoy your travels, we hope to see you again.

Really nice common areas to hang out in although they can get really loud if large groups take over. Wifi works well. Ensuite in the mixed dorm room was odd- see through shower doors were a bit uncomfortable but there are male/female restrooms on different floors to use. Not many outlets in the rooms but TONS everywhere else in the building. Dirty dishes would pile up in the kitchen and eating area. Bedrooms were really small. Decent for being so cheap.

Thank for for taking the time to provide thoughtful feedback, much appreciated. Sounds like overall you enjoyed your stay, which is great to hear. Some rooms are in the process of being upgraded to have more outlets, and we try and offer good alternatives elsewhere around the building. Guests our responsible for washing and clearing away their own dishes, though at times they do not always do so! Our staff do their best to keep the kitchen as tidy as possible for our guests. We hope to see you again

Good hostel for the price. We stayed for one night in a 10 bed mixed dorm and it was super cramped. Bathrooms were interesting.... But the location was awesome.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thank you for all of your comments, much appreciated. Our dorms do vary in size, and on a very busy night space can be more restricted. We do offer a variety of communal areas; TV room, snug rooms, Library and a spacious kitchen to give guests some extra breathing space. We wish you all the best on the rest of your travels.

Lovely place to stay. Staff was polite, everything was clean, they even have towels included, which is something most hostels don't Thr shower is not as warm as it could be for the winter time, but besides that, I had a great time there

You're very welcome. Thank you for your kind comments, I'm glad that you had a pleasant stay at our hostel. Our shower controls can sometimes be tricky to use, and we advise any guest having a problem with the water flow or temp to come to Reception and we will be happy to help. We hope to see you again.

This is the second time we've stayed here and were not disappointed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Will definitely recommend Sleepzone to others and aim to stay there the next time we're in Galway.

The hostel was great. The kitchen was excellent and regularly cleaned. The atmosphere was super fun too. Love the rooms and they were always clean. Lovely staff and the tours pick you up right at the door. Excellent. We ended up staying 2 extra days.

We enjoyed our stay at Sleepzone and particularly enjoyed the free tea and coffee and internet, use of kitchen facilities throughout the day, as well as the hostel's excellent location close to Aldi and Lidl, NUIG and not far from Galway's city centre. The atmosphere, which including funk music at all hours of the day and some drunk people in the evenings, left a bit to be asked for, but this was not a deal-breaker as we spent most of our time outside of the hostel.

Thank you for all of your comments, much appreciated. Great to hear that overall you enjoyed your stay and all of our facilities at the hostel. Weekends are always busy in Galway City, and guests enjoy the nightlife on offer. Though sometimes on returning to the building this can disturb other guests. We do have a 24 hour reception and encourage any noise or disturbance to be reported so that we are able to help. We hope to see you again.

A good base to explore the city, rooms were a bit snug, but the beds were comfortable enough. All in all, it is an adequate hostel for an affordable price.
