Score from 179 reviews Very good
Beds were really comfortable, staff were super helpful, the wifi was quite good (it would conk out very occasionally) and it was in a great location.
The showers turn themselves off after about 10 seconds, so you have to keep pressing the button. Also, the cups and bowls in the kitchen are toddler sized - I ate my dinner straight out of the saucepan.
I liked the staff, they were friendly and helpful. After my last stay at a hostel in galway i was left with a sour taste but sleepzone showed me that they were top contender for hostels
Excellent value for money in a clean, warm and friendly hostel that provided a great base to explore Galway city and Connemara and watch Connacht play the Exeter Chiefs.
Some nice staff. Great that there is tea available! beds are OK.Better than I expected for a hostel, even if we did get 4-bed en-suites.
Noise from hallway, breakfast? just toast? Really?
Rooms got cleaned every day, kitchen was awesome, location was 5 min walk to Eyre Square which is city centre! Staff were helpful and accommodating, will definitely want to come back.
Pillow was not comfy, which I don't blame them for, but I would bring my own next time.
Bed Common Areas Kitchen Helpful Staff
the atmosphere and energy of the place, the location, the price, the shared spaces, the information about things to do and places to go
the push-button shower, velux window with no view outside, and I woke with a pain in my neck!
It was clean and comfy and central, exactly what we were looking for. :)
Well if I was to pick a fault and really there wasnt many, I just hate showers that you have to keep pressing the button but it was great hostel.
Too warm in room
Everything was perfect for our stay,on arrival Donna the girl we dealt with was very nice and friendly to us and also very helpful and was the very same on our departure , thanks Donna!!
A group of 6 of us were meeting for a college reunion and didn't want a fancy hotel or B&B, the hostel was perfect as they had 6 bed dorms. We literally only used it to get ready before going out and then to sleep. Breakfast was included but we slept through it. Overall I would recommend this place! It's in a great location too.
Parking was tricky as they don't have any parking facilities and the public car parks were full on account of the xmas shopping season.
love this place never have problem and all nice stuff too
none i like it
Location in a quiet street but close to city center (just 2-3 mns walk) and commercial zone (cinema, lidl, TESCO, McDo...). Staff is nice and helpful. Kitchen is full equiped, but I didnt used it. Facilities are excellent and Wifi in every floor !
Breaksfast... NO HOT CHOCOLATE :'( Just tea, coffee, toast, butter and jam (surely the less expensive). I thought they would had put some juices and cereals. In my room there was a tiny mirror on the bathroom, it would had been nice to have a "big" one in the room (aaah girls!!). And 2-3 more washing-machine and dry-machine, there were just 1 of each, I had to wait 2h for my turn.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, good location, very clean and modern, great value for money
The hostel has a no alcohol rule which was not stated during the booking process. What is this - prohibition? The breakfast is just toast and budget jam - not worth getting up for. There is a full time security guard patrolling the hostel. I like the fact they take security seriously but having someone watching over you while having your dinner, along with the alcohol ban, can make this feel more like a stay in an institution than a holiday.
I've stayed in hostels all over Ireland, as well as Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary and this is by far the best place! I originally booked 3 nights, but ended up staying for a whole week! Rooms are lovely and spacious (I tried 2 different rooms during my stay and they were both great). Free breakfast, free towels, free WiFi (with a different connection in each floor to ensure good connection), free computers and printing, great advice about tours and attractions, great atmosphere. At least 5 social rooms downstairs for you to meet people and hang out. Close to the supermarkets, shopping mall, bars, pubs, beach and bus station, but down a side street so you are not kept awake by street noise. Staff are incredible - especially Dan. Galway is a really fun city, so to make your stay even better - STA HERE! They also have power sockets for different countries in the dining area, in case you forgot your adaptor, or only have one adapter and want to charge your phone and your laptop/camera etc. Great sociable vibe, where you will meet people from all over the world. Even if you find something cheaper, it is well worth paying the extra to stay here! This place was recommended to me by several different people (including some Irish people I met back home) and now I know why!
This place is brilliant! A few hiccups, like the dryer cut out before my clothes were dry, but Donna say really lovely and sorted it for me :]
clean and comfortable, staff is friendly and we enjoy our time!
The location is very good - heart of Galway and very close to everything. Staff was very nice and helpful.
The wifi didn't work most of the times. The window in our room didn't close properly so you could hear the noises from the outside (including screaming and cleaning vehicles in the mornings) which were unbearable in the morning. Breakfast was included but the variety was very poor and didn't looked promising.
The staffs are friendly and helpful. The Wifi connection is good. En-suite is a plus
Need to walk a little bit from the bus and train station.
Great location and price. Staff were friendly and helpful.
No lockers in the room. Beds were a bit uncomfortable, but not terribly so.
Wifi not available in double room as separate building
Apart from people at reception, who was really nice, cannot say anything good about Sleepzone. I recognize it may be good if you are young and do not care much about noise and comfort, though we found it so so expensive for what it is...
Very expensive for just a youth hostel and not a place to stay if you are in Galway for tourism and expect to have a good rest for a few hours in the night (youth hostel!), even though our room was in an apartment next door. The beds were really uncomfortable, sleeping with a mattress in the floor would have been the same, and you could hear all noises and voices from the street (again, youth hostel). Breakfast (coffee, milk, toasts and cereals) was include, but you had to do it by yourself, in a kitchen full of teenagers, and then you had to wash your own dishes... Not what you expect for 60€ per night.
I liked everything. I felt a little strange booking into a hostel the night before a hospital appointment but budget prevails and I met three lovely Canadian girls who chatted away and were so respectful of everyone, creeping in late, making sure they didn't disturb anyone
Secondary school Kids on same floor, possibly on tour from European tour, making lots of noise, but that's normal although it did annoy the other guests much more than I because I'm used to teenagers in my own home.
Near very close city and easier walk
Nice staff and good location
Light bulb went twice
cheap (14euro), clean, organised, free towels, free computers for internet
free internet computers were extremely slow (but better than nothing!)
