  • Best Hostel in Eire! I was in different hostels in my trip (dublin, cork, galway and belfast). Without any doubt Sleepzone is the best!!! wi fi everywhere (and it is a big hostel), everything was clean, 1 bathroom in the dorm and more outside, plugs and a light for every bed, breakfast included (toasts, cereal, coffee, tea), they have a lift, lockers did not work very well but they have secure boxes for free so you can leave the important things safely. You can book tours from there.

  • Rooms were very basic for the price, very small. Beds were uncomfortable (bunk beds in a twin room) we didn't sleep at all for 5 days. The breakfast is ok, frugal, only toast & instant coffee, no juice, only 1 sort of jam. Not enough place to eat in the morning so we had to wait sometimes 15 min to get a seat for breakfast. Beware, you're asked to clean the dishes you use. Bathroom was good, staff helpful and nice, common room were comfy. All in all not a bad hostel but pricy for what it is

  • Adding fruits to the available breakfast foods would be great. Also complimentary pairs of earplugs would be a good idea. Staff are very friendly!

  • I liked the bathroom in the bedrooms. The only thing that was misleading was that they advertised free breakfast but it was only toast.

  • Average hostel. No complaints. If you're looking for a cheap and relatively clean place to rest your head, this is it. Breakfast could've been better, but otherwise no complaints.

  • The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a very good tour to the Cliffs of Moher, which I recommend everyone to do. There was a kitchen to cook in and many rooms to hangout and chill at. The hostel was right around the corner of the city center which was really nice. It was pretty clean and the room were a decent size.
