Sleepzone Hostel Galway
Reviewed 15 May 2014

Stayed here for one night while I was stuck in Galway. Very nice place, very clean and the staff are very helpful. The beds were comfortable. Breakfast was included in the price for the night which was a nice addition. Big kitchen for cooking food so no need to worry about it being busy if you're trying to cook food.
The location is excellent. About 2 minutes walk from Eyre Square, local shops, restaurants, and the train/bus station.

Keycards are used to get in and out of rooms but I had trouble with mine stopping to work twice, which was an annoyance, but a couple seconds with the lady at reception and the card was working again.

The only bad thing was the lack of plug sockets in the room I was in (12). It only had one, very high up on the wall. There were 6 of us in the room, and we had to take turns charging things.

Room Tip: Room 12 is all all-girls room and only has 1 plug socket high up on the wall.

Stayed here in between finding a house after starting a new job. The staff were very friendly and helpful, also seem to really enjoy their job. It was quiet at night bar the noise from the road. Good facilities and breakfast was included which saved me a lot of hassle , well prices too! Overall very good and very clean!

We have nothing to complain about. Everything was graaaant! The staff was very nice and always helpful. There was free breakfast including eggs, big kitchen for self-catering, lots of cosy corners, lots of sockets, the rooms are not the biggest and there is not much space but somehow it was enough and each bed a seperate light! It was clean everywhere. In just a few minutes you can reach the city centre by foot and eveything else in galway as well (it's not that big)!

We had great time there and would definitely come back!

I stayed here one night on my tours of Ireland, and I have to say this was easily the BEST Hostel I've ever stayed in. It was nice and clean and a friendly environment. Other Hostels can be scary and super sketchy, but Sleepzone was none of that! It's super close to the City center and and easy walk to anywhere you want to go. Another small plus: Free Towels to use, other hostels I've stayed at will charge 1-4 Euro/ Pounds for towels. It's the little things like that that will keep people coming back. Defiantly would recommend if you ever go to the Amazing City of Galway, stay at SLEEPZONE!!!

Stayed a night with my wife and if I had realized how nice it was we would have skipped Cong and spent a couple of more nights here. Very close to the Spanish Arch and the many fine resturants and pubs of the Eyre Square. Minor draw back, no car park but there is one just a couple of blocks away.

We stayed here for two nights in a 6 bed female and one night in a 10 bed mixed dorm.
The Hostel is located in the city center of Galway, everything is just a few minutes walk away.
The rooms were clean, basic, but sufficient. The room have en-suite bathrooms, but there are also very clean common bathrooms on each floor. Free towels are available at reception.
The kitchen is great. There is enough space and everything is clean. Breakfast is included in the price and there is free tea and coffee all the time.
The is free Wifi, but also computers with internet available on the ground floor.
Staff was really friendly and helpful.
I would definitely stay there again!

Stayed here for one night whilst visiting Galway for St Patricks day.

Although check in is not till 3 you are able to leave your luggage in an area for free where there are also lockers for valuable things. The check in process is swift and easy and the staff are friendly and helpful. There is a free towel service

The room was a private room with en suite. We found the room clean and pleasant. The bed was comfortable and allowed a good nights sleep. The only gripe was the shower which was luke warm and had a push button to operate which needed to keep being pressed to have a shower. I understand why this is and it's not really a complaint but it did bug me, maybe have the button depressed longer before needed to be pressed again.

The communal areas have a large kitchen and dinning area as well as smaller individual rooms for smaller groups with arm chairs and foot stools.

We used the kitchen for cooking our evening meal with a well stocked kitchen and good supply of fresh clean tea towels and the only problem we found was a lack of small sharp knives for cutting vegetables.

Breakfast is included in the price but we had our own and from what I could see there was only bread and jam and one variety of cereal on offer. There are free tea and coffee making facilities and free use of two computers and internet.

Having read other reviews I do wonder what people expect. Yes check in is later than hotels but only by an hour and check out is at 10am but I can understand this with the hostel being able to accommodate close to 200 people as the staff need adequate time for turnover and the staff are not professionally paid hotel staff but these time are not a surprise to anyone as it is clearly stated on your booking form.

A very well staffed hostel. The staff are very friendly and helpful and I can see why it wins so many awards. Will definitely use again.
