This hostel had the most "roommates" we encountered on our trip through Ireland, with 10 beds per room. Thankfully everyone was quite and considerate and we slept soundly. The room included an en suite bathroom. No individual reading lights -- which is always a plus in a hostel. Security was good. The staff was super-friendly and helpful. It was clean,... More

I stayed here 2 nights, one in a 4-beds bedroom, one in a mixed 10-beds dorm. Both where very nice, clean and spatious. The hostel is very well located, 30seconds away from the bus Coach-station. The staff is very very nice and very helpful ! Great and cosy living room with billiard, free tv, free dvd and free videogames. The... More

Snoozles Hostel was just a few blocks from the train station and easy to find. It is also near the city centre and all the good restaurants and attractions. We were a family of 4 (2 teens and parents) and shared a quad room- one double bed and a bunk bed. Our room was extremely quiet, the beds and pillows... More

I stayed here last weekend for a stag weekend, and for a hostel, and given the price, it comes highly recommended. The place is spotless, the dorms and beds are fine. We didn't make breakfast but the setup seemed great with a separate kitchen and seating area with big-screen TV. I would definitely recommend this to anyone travelling to Galway,... More

This was an overnight stop on the Four Peaks Challenge. We arrived as a group off a bus and were well received and quickly allocated our rooms. The room was neat, clean and bright. Bunks were comfortable and breakfast substantial enough for another mornings walk.

Room was in excellent condition. Great facilities and an extremely helpful and friendly staff (Maria). Seeing that I was wet from the rain, she offered to use the driers to try my belongings as well as lend me a hair drier for. Located just seconds from the new bus terminal and the surrounding was really peaceful. Absolutely loved the attached... More
