“Snoozles... a good place to stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

I've stayed at Snoozles Hostel, Galway on a number of occasions...
I often ask if they have a private (single/ double) room rather than a dorm... and if they have one available, I usually get it for 1 or 2 nights at a very reasonable price (subject to "off-peak" time of the year and more likely during the week rather than at the weekend...)
The staff are very friendly and helpful, the place is kept very clean and tidy... everything about it says... professionalism!
Yours, John Hopkins

Room Tip: Just ask... and the staff will do their best to help you!

Snoozles was the 1st hostel I've ever stayed in, and it wasn't a place I'd be keen to visit again. Snoozles' staff were rude and intolerent of our not overly boisterous stag party. It was the only black mark on an otherwise great weekend in Galway.

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights with friends. The rooms were clean. The shower curtains were too short for the shower so the bathroom turned into a lake! The staff were very friendly on the phone but once we arrived they were not very nice and not accommodating what so ever. We wanted to have a couple of drinks before we went out to a nightclub however the common room closes at 10 pm or 10.30 pm. There was no pressure in the shower and the water was only lukewarm.

The hostel is in a great location & is great value for money.

Most hostels I have been to are great fun however this hostel doesn't tolerate noise & if you are looking for a hostel that you can have a drink and the craic in (like we were!!) then this hostel should not be for you!

I have not stayed in any other hostels but this was just ok the rooms were fairly clean but there was some kind of film on the floor and the bathroom had no hand soap and when we asked for soap they said they would bring it up and then we finally got it filled the day we left 10 min before we checked out. We had 1 extra bed in our room and they let someone check in after midnight when we had already gone to bed not a very nice wake up call. their breakfast is toast and cereal so not much for the "free" breakfast. It did have a nice location and the staff was nice but I don't have any desire to stay at another hostel anytime soon.
