  • Unfortunately rate even for larger dorms can be expensive especially at busy periods such as weekends. €30.00 for only one night can be a lot of money if you consider you're sharing with 8-9 other people in same dorm. Most hostel visitors are usually on fairly tight budgets so it's important to keep rates realistic. Power On activation buttons in Showers need to be re-calibrated again as the time interval =10 seconds approx per session-you spend whole time hitting on button over & over again!

  • We stayed here for 4 days and although the hostel was quite busy, the staff were very attentive. Huge kitchen and dining area, games available upon request, ensuite bathroom. Our first room was quite spacious, the 2nd room was a bit smaller and for 3 adults + 1 child, it felt a bit cramped. The washer/dryer facilities had only 1 of each so that meant waiting, but they supplied detergent which was nice. Eyre Sq. is round the corner so it was a good location. The staff had good recommendations

  • As return guest, I know what to expect in terms of high standard & facilities@Sleepzone. Staff are professional & approachable as always. Was kindly upgraded to Room 21 on 2nd Floor which was nice gesture - only negative aspect was that the shower unit required maintenance service as the activate button was timing out every 5 seconds. Also noted water pooling always around Toilet suggesting leaks? Right-Hand-Window also needs work as it is not airtight even if closed and you hear outside noise
