Great location next to the station and close to the city centre. It has fairly modern rooms, clean, and a good shower! Nice staff behind the reception, very helpful. Also great that there is an elevator so you don't have to carry your luggage up the stairs.

Stayed in a family room, which was tight, but adequate. The hostel was in a prime location, secure and not too noisy. The staff was fantastic with courtesy and by offering recommendations for places and activities to visit while in Galway. Would definitely recommend snoozles to anyone!

This is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The location in the heart of the beautiful Galway city is superb, only a two minute walk from eyre square, the city centre, all of the major pubs, clubs, restaurants, shops, bus and train stations. You really couldn't ask for better. The hostel itself is very modern, clean and spacious with lots of entertainment. (TV, wifi, computers, video games, pool table). The kitchen is kept very clean and fully equipped.
The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, always trying to make the guests stay as enjoyable as possible and very knowledgable about everything the city and surrounding areas has to offer. They go out of their way to help their guests.
I stayed here for business reasons as I had early starts at work and it was easier for me to be in the city to get more sleep and have less travel, and stayed once or twice to go out with friends in Galway city. This is why I say this place is great no matter what the trip purpose is. When I stayed to go out with friends, it was perfect, yet it was also perfect when I stayed for work and needed a good nights sleep. I can not recommend this place highly enough! :)
