Property Description

We have the best facilities by far of any hostel in Galway:

- We've a huge, newly re-fitted and fully-equipped self-catering kitchen and dining area, plus our great TV lounge with HD TV and a large selection of Irish interest movies and popular DVDs.
- We also have quieter, snug reading lounges with extensive libraries of travel books, books of Irish interest and other subjects.

- Almost all rooms (incl. dorms) are en suite with own private bathroom, and there are extra bathroom facilities on each corridor.

We’re located right in the centre of Galway – but not in the noisiest part. All the action is around the corner – but it’s not outside our front door. We’re just 100 metres from Eyre Square and three minutes’ walk from the two main bus and train depots.

Sleepzone is the best-located hostel for NUIG, cinemas and shopping, Black Box venue, Town Hall Theatre and most of Galway’s best attractions.

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.

    I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel! I stayed in an all female room which had an ensuite with two showers and two toilets (and a very tiny sink), but there were bigger gender bathrooms on the floor. The location was within walking distance of everything you'd need and the staff give great recommendations. They have common rooms and you can watch a selection of movies they have, they have laundry which is always a bonus. Only downside is that the wifi can be tricky in the bedrooms.

    Centrally located and with different option to go sightseeing the area, the hostel is a great option as a gateway for touring the region. Walking distance to the major tourist attractions in town likewise.

    Other than noisy guests and the shower being a handicapped shower the room was decent. I did complain about the noise levels from the room next to us and the staff took care of it promptly and efficently. It was a nice hostel for the price.
