Overview

Snoozles Hostel Galway is modern, brightly coloured and found right in the centre of Galway. We have an open kitchen where you can cook up dinner or pack a lunch if you're going to be out all day. And we treat you to tea and coffee in the common room too. There's a laid-back games room and an outdoor terrace for open-air relaxation. In the mornings we lay on a free breakfast because seeing what Galway has to offer is best on a full stomach!

Location

We're under five minutes on foot from the city centre. You can step out of the hostel and wander around the galleries and museums before hitting up our local nightlife. We're also next door to Galway Coach Station and Galway Railway Station, so exploring outside the city is pretty straightforward. Ask our expert (and friendly!) team to book you onto a tour to the Cliffs of Moher, the Aran Islands or Connemara National Park. Shannon is the nearest airport. It's around an hour's coach trip with Bus Éireann.

Rooms and Dorms

Our mixed dorms are sociable spots and great for meeting other travellers. Each bunk includes a reading light and an individual shelf for your stuff. Small groups and couples can choose a private room – some have a balcony and outdoor seating where you can soak up the city's atmosphere. To keep things simple (and snug) linen is provided. All rooms are en-suite, with towels and hairdryers ready to hire and storage lockers to keep your backpack safe.

Extras and activities

Missing a few items from your backpack? Check out our shop on site. There's also a vending machine for snacking in between rounds on the PlayStation, Wii or pool table. Three nights per week we lay on entertainment for you, with a Snoozles group dinner, movie and pizza night or an open mic evening. With free Wi-Fi and internet kiosks, free printing and event guides available, it's easy to organise a trip that ticks everything off your list.

    Snoozles perfectly reflects the warm and cultured atmosphere of Galway, and is in easy access of the centre of town, plus really reached by car when entering Galway. It is also PERFECT for its proximity to parking facilities (discounted) right next door! I am happy to recommend a stay here.

    Just booked a place to stay to plan my further trip. I forgot hostels quadruple their prices over the weekend. I also was unaware of race week and school holidays. Anyway I was very happy to share a room with 3 other 30+ more quieter people. The shower could need an update, beds were super, cleanliness super, excellent breakfast. There's only jam for breakfast so my cheese was stolen from the fridge (though labeled). LIDL is 10 mins away, Centra round the corner, nice terrace.

    Snoozles was an amazing hostel in such a great location with the coach station right next door which you have to go to for many tours and to catch the bus to Dublin or the Airport! The bathrooms were not the best but definitely not horrible for the price. The beds were very comfortable and I felt very safe at Snoozles as a young female.

    The hostel is right above the bus station which was very convenient for us. It was nice having an en-suite bathroom except the shower pressure was quite low. Staff was friendly and the hot chocolate was delicious! Would recommend staying here.

    Great location, close to everything in Galway including the bus and train stations. The place was clean and secure. The rooms being en-suite is also a big plus. Despite being “newly renovated”, there are no reading lights at each bed - a problem when people come in late or leave early and turn on the main/only light in the room, disturbing those trying to sleep - and the outlets (of which there are few) do not have USB ports. Those are standard now at hostels.

    Quite a commercial feel - big and impersonal. But nice communal dining area, lounge etc. Good facilities. En suite bathrooms with light switch in bedroom meant everyone wakes up when someone uses the loo in the night!

    The location is cool if you wanna party all night. Impossible to sleep before 3.30 am as the hostel is surrounded by busy and noisy pubs
