    I had a really good stay. The only thing was the new cards that they were using I had to change my card quite a few times because sometimes it would work and let me in or sometimes it would get me through the main door but I couldn’t access my room. I know that that’s not their fault and they told me they may have to return the card keys, but if that’s he only negative I can find, it was a good stay. Very great location and not too loud for it being in the center of everything.

    Snoozles is in a perfect location for walking to great pubs and good restaurants. The staff was so helpful and the kitchen was clean and vibrant in color. We are so happy to have spent a few nights here and met some cool people, we will be back!

    This place is in the absolute best location- it’s EXACTLY where you want to be to experience Galway! The rooms are very nice, clean, and functional. Place is secure and has a great WiFi connection. The staff is pretty good overall- the only thing I would say is that the night staff is not as willing to help as the day staff. The night staff told me I would not be able to leave my luggage in the luggage room after I checked out, but in the AM, the morning staff said that was untrue and let me!

    My over all experience was great! The staff were fantastic and very clean and comfy setting. My only disappointment was that they booked out the lounge and kitchen ares so there was no where to cook, eat, hangout or just send an email and I might have booked a different hostel if I had known prior. But ended up going out and had a good time in the city so it wasn't so bad after.

    The breakfast was a bit disappointing but this hostel paid for itself with its location. Right on the main street and close to everything in the city centre.

    THE BESTTTT LOCATION. Right on Quay street near all the best bars/pubs/ restaurants. The bathrooms however and not clean whatsoever. The bed sheets did not feel clean either and their was a bunch of random gross dirt in my bed! Other than that the place is very friendly and helpful!
