Fair accommodation
Poor check in , faulty electronic door, wasted nearly an hour on check in. No immediate car parking that's free difficult when trying to check in so park beforehand. They have deal with I park hidden behind bus station 7 euro a night. That said fairly new hostel, modern good condition. Fairly central for eyre square & the pub drag. Kept clean. Beds so so not the greatest of comfort. Possibly avoid odd number rooms face street , prone to street noise & smokers congregating & chatting loudly at front door. Overall reasonable for price paid.

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.

Very nice place with awesome staff. They stored my luggage for free while I went to see the Cliffs of Moher. The breakfast is awesome. There’s a coffee machine with different options to choose from including hot chocolate and tea. You just push the button :) There are different kinds of bread including whole grain and gluten free which is absolutely awesome! The hostel is just on the back of the bus station and the train station is pretty much across the street from the bus station, around 2 min walk. It’s quiet at night though. Very nice common spaces and the room and bathroom were spacious. Bed was quite comfortable. The only thing I don’t like and find very inconvenient is that the beds don’t have plugins and lamps. But I regret for staying only one night. I don’t really wanted to leave to go back to Dublin at all. If I could I definetely would have stayed more
