It's not the kind of hostels I prefer but It's ok. I mean, I prefer hostels having a past, It's a litte bit impersonal for me.

The staff were amazing and very helpful with getting around Galway and getting small things taken care of while staying at the hostel (like laundry). I only wish the breakfast offered in the morning was a bit more than just cereal and toast because that can be a little monotonous at times when you are traveling to many places and every hostel has the same simple breakfast.

We enjoyed our stay at sleepzone. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hostel is centrally located beside the bus station and main shopping street, just a walking distance from many attractions such as the cathedral and museums. It is close to the cinema and lidl. The room we booked was a twin private and they gave us an apartment next door, this was brilliant! The only complaint is the hot water system .we weren't informed that the hot water was on a timer so had unexpected cold shower

Not having numbered beds was slightly annoying, since the staff accidentally thought I had checked out and then started changing the linen in my bed. This meant my bed was unavailable from 10:00 to 14:00 or something. Apart from this the hostel was nice, clean and had very helpful staff. We didn't eat the breakfast though, since there was a huge line of people waiting to use the toasters. Not worth waiting for.

Very good hostel to meet people and a good starting point to see countryside around and along the West Coast.

It was my first experience in an hostel and I find it was wonderful. The staff was really kind and the rooms extremely clean. It was also a human experience. I meet amazing people so I recommend this hostel to you.

This is a good hostel for large groups. In fact when I stayed here the place was crowded with French teenagers. Therefore I wouldn't recommend coming here if you want a private room or double bed, as the only room available is in dank apartment separate from the main hostel. It didn't feel secure or particularly clean or well ventilated. This was particularly disappointing considering the above-average price. The private accommodation in other nearby hostels is much better for slightly cheaper.

Stayed here twice over the last fortnight. Everything was fine inside the hostel, but it would be nice if you could dissuade the noisy crowds of smokers and/or drinkers from congregating outside the main entrance late at night.
