  • 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.

  • I have been 3 times to Sleepzone in Galway, each time I have been highly pleased with the availability and kindness of the staff,the cleanliness of the place, the comfort of the dining room and the whole atmosphere.

  • All the amenities of a modern hostel minus the corporate indifference. The only fault might be the need to replace the computer keyboards as they are well worn. However a large selection of art books are available in "cosy niches" and the kitchen is ideally well designed with areas to watch food been ptrepared which draws onlookers ,without taking up the kitchen for other diners. Luggage drop down is at reception which is great as your holday/vacation can start immediately on arrival.

  • It was good for one night, but it is annoying having to go to the lounge to use the WiFi because there isn't in the rooms.

  • Very cosy and comfortable hostel close to town. I didn't use any of the cooking or communal areas but these all looked very nice, clean and well equipped.

  • I was extremely disappointed that the staff didn't assist further in an issue that occurred. A man staying in my room urinated all over my travel partner's belongings, including his tailored suit. They offered to wash the clothes, but that would be useless seeing as we were checking out at that moment. I would've appreciated some more assistance. I will not be coming back to this hostel.

  • A fine Tourist Hostel but they should consider making it stand out from Other hostels as several new hostel competitors have opened in town and most other existing hostels have done major refurbishment works. SleepZone should sort out poorly insulated defective windows in certain rooms - noise outside can be rather loud Carpet and Paintwork in certain areas badly needs refreshing/replacement altogether especially in Stairwells and around Kitchen/Dining Areas. A choice of breakfast cereal+juice?
