“Best hostel ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

This has been the best hostel I ever stayed in! As I'm working in the hospitality industry myself I had high expectations to the sleepzone and they have all been met without any exceptions! I was amazed how clean the hostel is and all the facilities they have. Even it was the Easter weekend it was still very good value especially for what they give you and where the hostel is located. The staff is extremely friendly and helpfull. The hostel is very well run by Paraic, a great manager! The hostel will get even better as they will rebuild the kitchen area in a few months time! Also a plus for the hostel is the free wifi. I'm already now looking forward to returning there!!!

Sleepzone is one of the cleanest and more modern hostels I have stayed in.
We stayed in a double ensuite which was very comfortable and clean although it was a bit cold in our room.
The kitchen/lounge area is great! Free wifi and plenty of space to prepare meals and eat as well as quite zones with couches and chairs.
All the staff were friendly from the day we arrived and were more than happy to help with advice and recommendations.
Will be recommending sleepzone to anyone who is going to Galway :)

Had a good time in Sleepzone. The place is extremely clean (apart from the foul smell, couldn't figure it out from where but not that bad and it came occasionally.) Good value for money. Big enough space in the kitchen to cook and big space for dining. Cosy corner with sofa for reading and stuff like that. Friendly staff, who helped me to call the laundrette before I went over, to check if it opens.

Overall, it is a good place to stay. No doubt about it. Worth for your money.

Room Tip: I didn't get any wifi from my room 14, coz it was all the way to the end of the building. If you...

From my experiences from traveling throughout Europe I found that Sleepzone's cleanliness and utilities were of such a high standard.

I must say my stay in Galway was truly amazing due to the exceptional staff at the hostel. There was not one moment that staff were unwilling to help, and all staff went about their day with a smile. Stephanie was a stand out charcter for me, she knew Galway like the back of her hand, was stern on lay of the land but was might craic!

I would reccomend Sleepzone to every and anyone! I had such a lovely time there!

I stayed in this hostel with a group. While the rooms were clean and comfy we were never told about the no alcohol rule until we arrived. Any alcohol in our rooms unopened or otherwise was taken by the cleaners, they even searched through a girls bag to find it. I don't think any hostel no matter how nice, should think it's ok to search through people's belonging's.

We did not search anyone's belongings !

It's disappointing that Trip Advisor seems to allow anyone to say anything at anytime without any verification with management.
