Reviews (8.9 Excellent)
very pleasant with staff helpful.
Very nice building, beautiful garden, large rooms (and bathrooms), all comfort, breakfast included is always a plus. The Sleepzone is one of the better hostels we stayed in during our time in Ireland. It's a dreamlocation. The kitchen could be a little bit cleaner, but was very well equiped.
Simply, the best hostel I have stayed in
The house was very nice and clean and the staff was very friendly.
I really liked the Sleepzone and I would definitely stay here again.
