5/5 Hostel Experience. Would stay again.
Okay, so Snoozes is a Hostel... Not a Hotel. With that in mind it is by far a 5/5 experience as far as hostels are concerned. My shower had water pressure, hot water and cold water tap, the bed was clean, comfortable and the cage fit my carryon tourists 55L bag. They didn't sell locks :( but a quick walk up the street while my bags remained safely behind the staff counter took 3 euro and 5 minutes. I stayed in a 4 bed room and the other girls were fine. Our door opened to allow in fresh air and the room was stocked with toilet paper and soap with a trashcan for sanitary supplies. I had 0 issues with my stay here. breakfast was decent. toast, cereal, coffees and juices. All the basics you get an an American breakfast bar with cold cereals. if you want something fancier take a walk up the street and for 7 euro you can get an `irish breakfast. Only issue i had which i learned was an issue after i moved to the Kinlay hostel down the street (to try it out) was at Snoozel you do not get wifi in the rooms. At Kinlay you do.

Great choice hostel for Galway
Stayed 3 nights. Perfect location just beside coach station, couple of blocks to bus rail station, couple of blocks to Eyre square, easy to walk to main sights. Lots of dining and entertainment and shopping very near. Great friendly helpful staff. Clean, quiet.
