Liked: Staff was friendly. Location was good. It was clean. Good kitchen. Not bad atmosphere -not drunk people shouting as in some other hostels in Galway-. I'd recommend it.

Disliked: The shower button had to be pressed every five seconds, quite annoying. They have lockers downstairs, but they are very small: if you want a bigger one you'll have to pay for it. A bit too hot during the night.

Liked: The staff is friendly and very helpful, the facility is clean, the computers are free and the wi-fi works well. If there are any problems, such as a flagpole outside our window was loose and making a horrible noise because it was windy. When I mentioned it to the staff they immediately said they would move our room and put us in a larger room for the rest of our stay. I did not have to suggest the change and they did not make us feel guilty or act like we were putting them out. They were gracious and very kind. They have a wonderful newly remodeled kitchen with plenty of storage in cupboards and refrigerators. Their kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, silverware, utensils, dishes, glasses, cups, dish soap, and tea towels. There are four sitting rooms and a very large dining area with two long sidebars for laptop use. I would certainly stay there again and would highly recommend the Sleep Zone.

Disliked: I cannot say that there was anything I disliked.

Liked: Stayed at this hostel twice, and I lovee it! Super friendly staff (shout out to Donna!), very clean and lots of facilities. It's also in a great location, close to massive supermarkets and the main parts of town (Galway is tiny anyway).

Disliked: Only slight downside is that during the times I've been there, there were mainly big groups staying at the hostel.. not too good for the solo traveler! but luckily the hostel has loads of little common rooms so it can be easy to meet other people if you want to! Just book to stay there! :)

Disliked: Atmosphere was nice but the common room was not inviting to sit together and get in contact with other travelers

Liked: Great location with plenty of amenities for solo, group or couple travellers. The reception was always willing to give loads of information and help where needed. Staying in a dorm of 6 was no problem as there was definitely enough room for the essentials - shower and sleep! The wifi was only available in the common areas or stairways which got slightly annoying but in the end you had plenty of lounges to choose from in the common areas and were able to socialise with others at the same time. The kitchen was generally flowing with people in the evening's so if you like cooking in peace - go a little earlier!

Disliked: In general the hostel served its purpose and provided a good place to stay for a few nights in-between travel. A similar hostel in Dublin did provide large lockers for your bags which would have been nice - however the area was quite secure and you needed security cards to access the rooms anyway.

Liked: staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. my first solo hostel experience as a woman, it couldn't have been better. this hostel is immaculately clean, safe, well organised, great location only 2 minutes walk from the bus and train station, shops, city centre and nightlife. yet far enough away go be quiet at night to get a good night's sleep. fabulous setup in the communal area and kitchen. good Wi-Fi incommunal area. can't recommend it more highly.

Disliked: nothing
