I accidentally hopped on the Galway bus from Dublin Airport instead of the Dublin bus. The bus driver told me about snoozles, which is right next to the bus station, so I called them up at 1 am and they said they had a room and I arrived at 3, and they greeted me and helped me with my bags....

This was the third hostel I stayed in during my time in Ireland and I was very satisfied with the service and stay. The rooms were spotless and clean, the common area had many games, a pool table and computers and the breakfast was perfect.

Last time we stayed in a hostel was in Sweeden (4months ago) and it was amazing, before that was in Ireland (10+years) and it was rough and ready - cold and damp, then to my amazement was Snoozels in Galway, Warm, Clean and welcoming. Snoozels would shame hotels, it was spotless, central, and great fun. Due to no bar there...

We stayed for a quick overnight stopover, staff were very friendly, our room was huge, very clean and quiet. The location of this place is really good, only a short walk into town. We were able to park our car in a secure public parking building nearby and get half price rates as a guest of the hostel. Basic breakfast...

The staff was really friendly and helpful. I had a room for 6 people, but there were only 4 of us. The bathroom was clean, but after you had a shower, the water was everywhere, they could work on that. Nice free breakfast, they have lots of stuff in the kitchen you can use to cook for yourself. Be careful...

This was the first hostel I stayed at in Ireland, and probably the best. The staff was overly friendly. The kitchen and common areas were good. The bathrooms were good. Staff was very accommodating with early check-in, baggage, tour suggestions (and discounts!), and even had a free decent selection of travel electrical adaptors. The free breakfast was much more substantial...

Lovely welcoming staff, acceptable common room with outdoor smoking area. Comfy chairs, lots games at your disposal board/video games. Lots of information at the front task about what to do and where to go. Situated relatively close to the bus station, bars, shops, restaurants etc. Room was too stuffy. not enough air getting in, window barely opened was so uncomfortably...
