Snoozles Hostel is already welcoming you from the street by the way it is designed, followed by friendly, warm staff. The staff is very helpful and always there for you. We got an upgrade as well. The room was very nice, super clean and the beds comfortable. There is a kitchen is necessary and common 'living room' to hang out....

Brilliant weekend! Stayed here last weekend for a hen party and have to say it was nothing but perfect. I was sceptical and perhaps leaning towards a snobby side when I heard we would be staying in a hostel, but HOW wrong can you get!!!! The staff were absolutely lovely, the rooms were spotless and the location was great. Okay,...

Stayed here with my mom and sister for three nights. Three nights is too long in Galway but we went on tourist tours so that was fun. The hostel is nice and clean. It was way better than I expected. The breakfast was just bread and some corn flakes but it's free so that's better than nothing. We reserved three...

Stayed at this place for a night and I was really impressed. The rooms are really cute and you get your own bathroom per room. It's in a really good location, about a 4 min walk from Eyre square and city centre. The breakfast in the morning was good too with toast, juice, pancakes, coffee, etc! Recommend.

Great location, clean and friendly. The rooms are big and tidy. The en suite toilet has hot water working fine but it can get really wet after a shower. A bit cold during the nights but the duvet was really good. Very recommendable!
