Score from 54 reviews Very good
The staff were fantastic, so friendly and helpful and constantly keeping the hostel clean.
Some of other travellers were a bit noisy at night and inconsiderate. Water pressure was not great and showers only luke warm, a bit of a downer after swimming in the Fjord!
Friendly staff, nice busy atmosphere, beautiful outdoors on your doorstep.
Room was damp, bed was hard, no extra pillows or blankets. Bar was 'out of stock' when we arrived.
Super location, great public facilities
Not enough water coming out of the shower, not always hot water available, hard to get anywhere without your own car
- quietness - clean - friendly staff - perfect location
- breakfast with very limited choice - poor atmosphere, nobody speaks to each other, maybe too many foreign families or young couples who stay there just to cut the cost and don't really care about the hostel conviviality
We got a room to ourselves. The staff members were pleasant.
The price, E53 after a 10% discount. We had a good size room, but there were no chairs and no table so we had to put everything on the floor. The shower didn't work. It took 2 hours before we could shower. Breakfast was abysmal, cheap bread and jam, tea and coffee was all. The WiFi didn't work in our room.
A big noise, coming for other toilets at night time and young people a three oclock in the morning doing a party. Higger price respect other hostel from the same company.
The location is spectacular overlooking Killary Fjiord. It did get a bit cold during the night but that's the time of year.
the view of the lake the price of the room
lack of comfort in the bedroom
Amazing Location, so beautiful I dragged my dad all the way to Killary Fjord just so I could show him this hostel. To accomodate our wishes they put an extra bed into my dad's single room. Price remained, however it was so much more comfortable.
My dad noticed there was no hot water in the morning. It's great that they offer free breakfast, however if you're not up early, chances are the place is crowded, especially if there's a group of students around (we didn't mind at all, though... just noted) ;-)
It is a great place surrounded by nature staff was really helpful and friendly
hop on hop off service from galway sleepzone hostel
Nice people,fantastic facilities
It's good to have an own car as it is 4 km to thr next small town
Lovely hostel,spacious and clean rooms, friendly staff, great location if travelling with car or bike, if hiking the hostel a bit far from Leenane and the main road. Really enjoyed our stay, would recommend to anyone
Nice accommodation, calm location.
Sometimes hot watter was unavailable.
Amazingly beautiful location. Everything about it is breathtaking.
No ATM near and the restaraunts and shops only take cash.
My parents, 2 kids and I went to Ireland for a month and did little side trips to different areas around the country. One of our side trips was to the Connemara Hostel Sleepzone and we were so in love with the location of this place. We got a room that was facing the Killary Harbour and walked down to the water side every day. It's neighbors with Killary Adventure Company, which looked awesome. Next time, when I'm not with little kids, I'll have to try them out.
It's a bit tough to find as the GPS doesn't recognize the road. Just keep going past Leenaun, towards the ocean, and look for their road sign a couple miles out. If you get to the Sheep Farm road, you've gone too far. Also, stock up your supplies before you get there as there is no store within walking distance. Avoid The Village Grill in Leenaun unless you like frozen waffles and the likes.
I stayed in a private ensuite room, it was very comfortable and had views over the Killary Fjord. Small but clean bathroom. Breakfast is simple, but the kitchen is very well equiped, best kitchen I've ever seen in a hostel! Buy your food beforehand because the hostel is somewhat in the middle of nowhere, so bring your own dinner. I didn't have a car so I came prepared. Not having a car makes things a bit more difficult to get around the area. I walked a lot, and also borrowed a bike, free of charge. There are some steep slopes though, so cycling around is not exactly easy (especially if you're not sporty) but it was SO worth it. The views are absolutely stunning!! The Galway Tour Company dropped me off in the afternoon and picked me up again the next day. I will definitely return, but by car to get around more easily. Absolutely recommended though, the location is SO stunning, you'll want to keep photographing the same mountains over and over again! PS: Have some mussels from the stall on the main road (direction of Leenane), delicious! :)
Some walking/cycling maps that show the smaller roads would have been handy. Not ideal when you don't have a car, perfect for one day, but getting around could become a major problem if you plan on staying more nights.
If you like nature: come! Surrounded by mountains of Connemara and at the Killary Fjord. Very calm and breathtaking scenery. Apart from the times that next door neighbour Killary Adventures has activities on the water (twice a day a 2 hour session- like kayaking or gorge climbing) it is silent at the fjord. You hear the sheep from the mountain on the other side. Tip: go take a seaweed bath at the Leenane hotel in the village after a walk in the mountains! Just one bus a day from either Galway or Westport to get here, if you don't have your own car. Once at the hostel we also hitch hiked around and that went really well. Staff is capable, very helpfull and most of all very friendly!
friendly, very comfortable,
The location was brillliant right beside the fjord, great scenic location.
Far from town
location is very nice in heart of nature
common using of fridge is not happy, someone has eaten our food
Location was great & scenery was stunning. Friendly, helpful staff. Comfortable beds.
Facilities were fairly basic, no blind on velux windows, no hot water in mornings for showers, window didn't close properly & whole place could do with a lick of paint.
The fjord, boat trip, abundance of nature, dvd collection
No public transport to the hostel Room smelled of old carpet Midges, broken toilet in main building
landscape dining room view - grandios
