This is a very clean hostel. It was 16 euro but worth it. Located just off the square it is easy to get to any attractions / water / shopping area / pubs. Friendly staff. Good WIFI, clean kitchen and lounge, decent breakfast, free towels, good access to lockers and luggage room.

Best Hostel during our two-weeks adventure trip through Ireland, though we have been in Hostels all over the world. The kitchen is huge and luxurous, the facilities are in good shape and the receptionists are very friendly, humerous and georgous (especially Sarah =) ). They even have a luggage room, which is accessable any time. Breakfast is included and the...

In June I embarked on a backpacking adventure that would last a few months. I've stayed in many hostels and apartments in cities all over Europe, but I can say without any reservations that Sleepzone in Galway was the elite of all hostels I've been in - hands down the best one. The accommodations were excellent - rooms were a...

However, if guests arrive prior to this they can leave their belongings (for free) in our large luggage room just off reception. Free wi-fi, computer access and tea /coffee can be availed of in our large kitchen/dining area or in our comfy communal areas. With...

I'm not sure how sleep zone has the reviews it does. My friend and I arrived to a loud, institutional and overpriced hostel. Upon check in we were told that we had been put in separate rooms which is fine but inconvenient considering how early we had made our reservation. It is also important to draw attention to the security...

Thank you for your kind comments about the cleanliness of the hostel (always rated extremely highly on hostel-booking websites) and our kitchen facilities (recently renovated) - they always receive a lot of praise. We must apologise that there were not enough lockers available on the day that you stayed with us - we recall conversing with you about this, and...

This was our first family trip to the west part of Ireland and staying at Sleepzone made it even more memorable. From the modern conveniences (free wifi, clean rooms, baths and kitchen facilities) to their superb customer service, friendliness of staff, and excellent locations to nearby attractions, Sleepzone was by far the best value for money. In fact, we ended...
