Overview

Sleepzone is in the heart of Galway – an ideal base for exploring the city and its surroundings. We're in a quiet street right next to the action, so you can party on Saturday and sleep it off on Sunday! Grab a free breakfast before exploring with your free city map. Whether you're into traditional Irish music, local comedy or partying, our friendly staff can advise you on where to go, or arrange discount tours to some of the area's spectacular scenic spots. We have cosy common areas where you can meet your fellow travellers, and a modern, well-equipped kitchen that's a great place to while away the evening with friends over a homemade dinner.

Location

We're just 5 minutes' walk from Eyre Square, the city's main hub. You'll also be within walking distance of most of the city's must-see sights and its top nightlife spots. Browse artisan boutiques in the vibrant Latin Quarter, under 10 minutes away by foot, then cross over the river to catch the latest exhibition at the Galway Arts Centre. Galway Airport is easy to get to – it takes about 30 minutes on the 425A bus. We're a 3-minute stroll from the two main bus and train stations.

Rooms and Dorms

We've got rooms for everyone, whether you want to share travel experiences with new people in a mixed or female-only dorm or couple up in a private room. Free Wi-Fi and international power sockets mean you can keep your phone charged and your social media up to date.

Extras and activities

You can store your valuables free of charge in the lockers at reception (just bring a padlock). For a bit more security, or if you're not travelling so light, we also have large coin-operated lockers. If you're staying in, settle down with a DVD, have a chat in the lounge over a free cup of tea or coffee, or find a quiet spot with a book from our large library.

    An excellent hostel-very comfortable with terrific facilities. Also, really impressed with how the staff were managing the Covid-imposed precautions in such an effective and friendly way. In fact, it's working very well, with little disruption. Because of that, we had a very enjoyable stay and a much-needed break for a few days.

    Stayed here for one night with three teenagers in a private room w en-suite. Was in a great location. Nothing fancy but everything works and was great value for money. The place is spotless, staff very friendly and free breakfast was a nice touch. Very well set up for COVID precautions.

    Nice, clean hostel. Fairly central location, a short walk to Eyre square and shop street. Basic rooms that do the job, the beds were very uncomfortable but for a short stay it wasn’t too bad. Overall a grand hostel, probably wouldn’t stay again as there are plenty of hostels of a similar price in more central locations

    The sink has hot and cold water separated! Both rooms we stayed in! I don't get it?! It either gets sooooo hot, or soooo cold! CHANGE IT. One of the rooms was noisy, the traffic outside. The other room.. The window was in the ceiling and we had to use a a huge pin and close and open it manually. So bad.. Cleanliness not the best either. In the morning, it stinks in corridors. I didn't like/enjoyed my stay. Way too pricey either.
