Pretty happy with here, nice environment and friendly staff! Breakfast was good, as was the location. I would definitely happily stay here again!
Could do with more powerpoints and lockers in rooms though (minor issues)

By far the best hostel I've stayed in while in Ireland
This hostel is amazing clean (almost sparkling), nicely-located, friendly, and has great common rooms. I felt incredibly comfortable in this hostel, as if felt so clean and safe it was more like a hotel (only cheap!)

Visited Snoozles at the end of January with a large group, there was around 10 of us.
The hostel is ideally located, with it being only a couple of minutes walk from Eyre Square and the train station.
The staff were very nice and really helpful, even sorting us out with a few guest lists into night clubs and stuff.
The rooms were perfect for the two nights, there were 3 sets of bunk beds in our room which was a bit tight for 5 people and their stuff but as students we didn't really care. Also, the bathroom was a bit of a disaster as every time the shower was turned on the bathroom floor flooded.
I also would recommend bringing an extension lead as we only had two plugs between us all in the room.

It's a great value place to stay with great staff and it's ideal location wise.The room was perfect for what we needed!

Dear Aoife P,

Thank you for your fantastic 5* review, we are delighted you and your friends had a great time with us and that you found us very well located and the staff helpful. We do apologise for the powerful shower wetting the floor, if a member of staff was aware, we would have provided you with additional floor towels. Despite this, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and we hope to see you again soon!

A group of us stayed here last weekend while on a stag in Galway. Can thoroughly recommend this hostel! What struck me when we arrived was how clean the place is. Also has a fab funky vibe. Would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Parking - There is a decent overnight rate available. Talk to the hostel and get directions first. B...
