It was a nice stay - stuff is nice, atmosphere is good, especially because there is a comfortable chill out area (with free WiFi and internet) were you can always find some people to talk and were it is nice to have breakfast with all the other young travellers around! The common bathroom (there's also a bathroom in the dorm but it is very small and of course not enough for six people in the morning!) is not the biggest but it's ok. One more good thing: the beds are very comfortable. :)

Great hostel! The cleaning staff is awesome and they work super hard to keep that place spotless! Thank you! Good kitchen, rooms were a good size and staff was super friendly! Just a short walk from everything. Would definitely recommend ad return.

Very clean and spacious ensuite female dorm. Excellent kitchen facilities. Hot showers and no problems connecting to the free wifi. Short walk from bus station and to city attractions. Enjoyed day tour of Cliffs of Moher that I booked at the hostel reception desk. Some noise at night from the street, but overall not bad.

Greate place to stay for few days. Maybe someone could tell other guests not to shout late in the night.

Stayed 3 nights wtih two sons aged 14 & 11. They loved being able to wander around Eyre Square on their own as it was so close, and go shopping around the corner. Our purpose was to visit NUI Galway - very easy on foot (10 ro 15 mins walk) or car. TALL PEOPLE TAKE NOTE - not sure if most hostel bunk beds are short, but I'm 5'6'' and lying flat didn't quite fit onto the bed!!

Very helpful staff who know a lot about attractions and transport. Centrally located, close to everything. Grocery store around the corner. Large social areas and kitchen. Wifi is pretty good, too. Overall, an excellent hostel.

Stayed for 4 nights Aug 29 - Sept 2, first in a 6 bed female dorm and then switched to a 4 bed female dorm. Hostel is well located and very clean. Staff on the desk are very friendly and helpful. Rooms were basic, beds were comfortable, and the two rooms I stayed in had small wardrobes. It would have been helpful to have wall hooks in the rooms as well. Ensuite bathrooms were bright and clean, but need more shelves and wall hooks installed.

Kitchen at breakfast was always clean and well supplied by staff. I expected more for breakfast though. Only cornflakes, toast, butter, jam, and tea

Honestly, we could not expect more! Of course, the furniture is not especially fancy but me and my son were totally happy with Sleepzone.

Stayed in a double room with shared bathroom accommodation. Room was part of shared apartment with a twin room, it was kept very clean and there was plenty of kitchen facilities in the apartment which we didn't end up using. Staff were very welcoming and friendly and the location was brilliant, just a short walk into the main streets in Galway. Room was on the doorstep of a busy street so traffic/people talking woke us up quite early. But other than that it was a great place to stay.

This is the first time I've stayed in a hostel and was very impressed with the efficiency and friendliness of the staff, also with the scrupulous cleanliness.

Our room was terrible! It was so small, you couldn't pass each other beside the bed. The door had a window of milk glass (because there was no window in the room) with gaps in it. So the privcy was about zero. On the other side of the wall there was the entrance door to a car park which made a terrible noise when it opened. This happened about every 5 minutes from 7am. Most exepsive of 6 hostels on our trip but one of the worst.

Great hostel in Galway city centre! The staff is really helpfull and kind, the location is good because it's just a 3-5 min walk to the real heart of the city. The rooms are very clean and also the bathrooms (who are en suite) are nice and spacious. You have all the facilities you need in Sleepzone: kitchen, relaxing room, tv, wifi,... You can even book excursions at the hostel itself and the main advantage of this, is that the bus picks you up right in front of the hostel. Real value for money!

Very good place to stay, cleanliness is really impressive (staff constantly running around cleaning) and staff extremely nicre and always ready to help. They also have free lockers and loads of common areas with couches, books tv and dvds, even two free internet position (plus of course free wifi throughout the building). The only downside is that the kitchen is always full of ppl, but overall this is definitely a minor issue.
