- Free safes for valuables are located by Reception (just bring along your own padlock, or you can purchase one from Reception)

- We offer free internet (with PC terminals for guests) and free Wi-Fi
- Almost all rooms (incl. dorms) are en suite with own private bathroom, and there are extra bathroom facilities on each corridor.

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. They go every morning with pick-up at our front door.

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.

Overall good, location, the staff was nice and helpful and we could store our things. Maybe a bit pricy for a shared dorm, and also the storage under the beds in our room did not work well. One couldn’t stay in the bed if one needed to roll out the box, which made it annoying when a guest needed to grab her bag early in the morning and wake me up at 6 am… :( 1 out of 2 sinks were broken when we were there making it quite crowded in the kitchen when making dishes But still a nice hostel!

Sleepzone was a wonderful hostel. I loved the free breakfast, which was mostly vegan friendly with some limitations. I also loved the kitchen and used it many times. WiFi was a bit weak/spotty at times, but they have WiFi networks on every floor which helped. The lockers are crates under the beds, which are a little bit difficult to manage and have many holes in them, so make sure to put your stuff in bags in there. There are also no privacy curtains and not every bed has a plug next to it.
