“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

A really cute homey hostel.
Clean, great staff, comfy hang out area, clean showers and bathroom - separate for men and women.
Kitchen area if you would like to cook. You can keep your food in the fridge in a labeled bag.

Location was absolutely amazing. It is next door from central bus station - we got off the bus, walked out of the station and the hostel was right there.

Booked in for 3 nights in Dec and it was wonderful! The rooms were very new and clean, the staff was uber friendly and location was perfect because was very close to all the going ons but far enough away so it was quiet. Would highly recommend Snoozles!

We were booked in the hostel while going on a three day Galway Tour Company tour and after staying in a Dublin hostel the night before we were slightly worried. But there was no need to worry because this hostel was absolutely wonderful! We stayed in a private room which had a spacious bathroom and even a balcony. The girls at the desk were so nice and helpful! It was an easy walk to all the stores and restaurants and there's a rather basic but free breakfast every morning. I only wish we would have had more time there! I definitely recommend this hostel!

They have a nice little breakfast in the morning, decent wifi included and the room was really clean! Beds were comfortable! My only complaint was with the bathroom - using the shower got water everywhere...not a big deal, we just laid towels down.
The common area was really nice as well!
Overall I'd definitely stay here again!

Just back/recovered from my stag in Galway at the weekend. 24 of us stayed at Snoozles on both nights and everyone was delighted with the accommodation. Value for money was good and the service also was very good. Anything that we asked or required was provided. Definitely would recommend to stay here. Best of all the location is perfect very close to everything but far enough away that it is a quiet area.
