Sleepzone was meant to be the best accommodation in Galway. There were actual card keys to get in and out of the room, unlike real keys in previous hostels. I stayed in a 9-person room, full of people in my tour group. I felt safe and secure because I was with people I knew. Our room had a large en suite, with a shower, toilet and sink. There was a bathroom directly across from our room that held showers and toilets too in case we needed it. Our room had a small balcony outlooking a bit of Galway and the street below.
The hostel was in a great location, only a few blocks away from Galway city center. The kitchen was spacious and had enough equipment for multiple people to cook/clean at once. The staff was friendly enough, but weren't overly helpful. Two of the guys in our group came in late, but most of us were woken up because one staff member tried to tell him it wasn't his room because it was an all-girls dorm. If that was the case, they shouldn't have given the guys keys in the first place, hours before. All 9 of us were awoken by this incident in the early hours of the morning. While I'm sure it was all a misunderstanding, it was a bit frustrating at the time.
Overall, a nice location and clean facility.
