    Snoozles made our two night stay in Galway an amazing experience. We did the Thursday night pub crawl & met some forever friends. Ended up traveling with them for the next few days. Staff was friendly, fast, & accommodating. Noise level was decent from outside. Breakfast was just what you needed to get through the morning. We loved it, I’m sure you will too!

    Snoozles Quay Street is in the city center of Galway, making it easy to access everything nearby. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the accommodations were very clean. I especially liked that the bathrooms are en suite. I always felt safe and everyone was really friendly.

    Snoozles Quay Street was a last minute booking but it did not disappoint! If you're looking to enjoy the Galway night life Snoozles Quay Street offers an unbeatable location. Great bars and food options literally just steps away. My friend and I stayed in a mixed dorm that was clean and comfortable- friendly guests making for a great atmosphere. Besides the location, Snoozles other gem is definitely the staff - friendly, helpful and a good sense of humour. Cheers Dave and Snoozle, we'll be back!

    Pros: right in the heart of the Latin quarter. Just step.out the door for a good time! Love places with the baskets under the bunks big enough for your stuff. Cons: bathroom was clean, but the sink drained ssuuppeerrr slowly, and the toilet squealed, often taking a few attempts to flush.

    This place is located right on the Main Street in Galway which is convenient; however it also means that you’re right on top of all the bars that are super loud until 2am. Really really hard to sleep even with ear plugs. Galway is so small and walkable it would’ve been a better idea for us to stay off Main Street. Our bathroom and shower could’ve been cleaner. Staff was really nice and helpful though.

    It's impossible to get sleep here when you're next to the busiest street in Galway. Staff were lovely and facilities good but not value for money at all.
