Gross. Just gross. This is the nastiest place I ever slept in my entire life. There were bugs crawling on me in the bed...the room they put me in had 22 people, of both sexes, sleeping in it! Absolutely no privacy, way too many people, and it seemed generally shady.

We stayed here knowing that it didn't have the best reviews, but as there were a few of us, it was the only place that could give us the rooms we needed. Upon arrival, you are greeted with a small sign and locked door - with security notices and a buzzer. Once let in, you are checked in, and then... More

I came to Belfast for my stag weekend and was really looking forward to experience the Belfast atmosphere. The best thing about the hostel is its location, right next to the Cathedral quarter which is fantastic, bars are lively and authentic. There was six of us staying in one room, and it was certainly basic, but for £9 a night... More

The window of our room was broken and being march it was terribly freezing inside. 2£ for breakfast definitely not worth it. Staff unfriendly. The rooms and customers were really noisy. The only positive tip was the positio, exactly in the centre of the city.

I have stayed in this hostel a few times over the past year anytime I have visited Belfast with friends and it was exactly what you would expect , cheap and basic. All we needed was somewhere to put our head down for a few hours, no frills accommodation. I was in Belfast on Saturday afternoon with my friend and... More

This place is the worst dump i have ever had the misery to stay in and i have stayed in some kips in South America and Asia - avoid at all costs. Not that i even got to stay there after booking it - thought we were being a bit clever by avoiding the dorms and getting a twin room,... More

This is by far THE worst place I have ever stayed in. We had booked a private twin room, and when we got there we were told that they were doublebooked (which seems to generally be their policy!) and we could have a small room with bunkbeds or go to their other property which is 20-30 minutes away (and we...
