I've been in hostels around Europe quite a lot and this is a wicked one. It's clean, the radiators works really well in the bedrooms, the carpet is not full of staines like in every other hostels. The staff is helpful and there is a lot of tours that leaves exactly 10 meters from the hostel. It is well located,... More

The hostel is located next to the coach station. It's easy to access the main street of Galway. The staff are super friendly. We stayed at the room just next to the lift. It's quite noisy when someone using the lift. The breakfast is simple but it's far enough because it's free.

Snoozles is right next to the coach station, which is the departure point for many day tours to places like the Connemara. There is a well-equipped kitchen, with Tesco and Lidl a short walk away. Shop Street is also a short walk away (across the other side of Eyre Square) for food, shopping and trad music. The 10-bed mixed dorm... More

I feel very safe at the Snoozles hostel, the staff is young and very competent and friendly, the rooms are fairly clean and there's everything a backpacker could need. Only irritation: The prices that are shown online always seem to be a little bit wrong. For example a monday-night in the 10-bed dorm is supposed to cost 9,99 Euro, but... More

The receptionists fixed smile sugar coated the outrageous price for a bed in a cramped 6th berth dorm decorted in the 80s and a disgusting bathroom/wet room, blocked with clumps of hair and nowhere to place or hang clothes except for on the wet dirty floor.
