Not only are we a great base for Galway – but we’re also great base for the wider West of Ireland: our partners offer discounted tours to The Cliffs of Moher, Connemara and the Aran Islands. They go every morning with pick-up at our front door. Our tour partners also offer jump-off/jump-on facility with our sister hostels in Connemara and The Burren, should you decide that you want to stay overnight in these locations.

Our staff are a mix of local and backpacker staff and they can give you the best of local and touristic perspectives on what’s on in the city and what to do and where to go in the West of Ireland . Our staff have insider knowledge which they can customise to your requirements; whether you’re looking for a crazy pub or a cosy pub, some Irish music or theatre, a comedy show – or some historical or cultural information.

Come and see for yourselves why Sleepzone has been consistently voted one of Ireland and Europe's (and in 2013 the World's !) leading hostels for the last fifteen years. View House Rules

    Nice little hostel, good location and facilities. The showers are annoying ( the push button kind) but clean. We had some bad room-mates but the staff was excellent and when there were some teens making noise at midnight I heard the staff go up and talk to them.

    The staff was really friendly upon my check-in, and the hostel had a really good security throughout the place. The hostel is noisy with lots of people coming and going and doing their thing - not a complaint but just putting it out there. The location is superb. It was clean and the beds are pretty comfortable.

    Very clean. Great location. Staff is super helpful and amazingly nice. The only ok thing was the push button shower. Also could have used a bath mat so the floor wasn’t so slippery. They always had coffee made which was AMAZING! Thank you, I will be back!

    The twin room is not really a twin. Pretty noisy and not as comfy as it should be for a private room when you’re paying twice the price of a bed in a dorm. Stick to the dorms.
