This is a great place to stay if you're on a budget and happy with the hostel experience. They have basic but clean and adequate rooms, really helpful and friendly staff who are extremely professional, a really cheap and well-stocked cafe and solid facilities. It's on a quiet road, and I would definitely stay there again in I return to... More

Very nice place, fair location and with enough park spaces. Good value. Food was good altough not included the breakfast. . Shared shower was not a problem as it was located right in front of our room.

Good staff and big kitchen, plus there's a nice café serving good and not to expensive breakfast in the same building. The hostel is halfway from Queen's University and the "downtown" area, so the location is excellent.

Two of us stayed here for one night. Good location as we had to get the bus to Dublin in the morning. The room was small with just the one bunk bed and a sink. This was fine for us as it is what we are used to when travelling around but others may not like it. Just down the... More

Staff were friendly and helpful, hostel cafe had excellent food which was good value, and it is within walking distance of plenty of Belfast tourist attractions and amenities. The room itself was okay - very basic which can be expected from a hostel. We stayed in a private twin room which was a nice size for the two of us.... More

Please keep in mind this is a hostel so don't expect a fancy or luxurious room. In hostel terms, the room was slightly below average, small prison style room with a slight stench coming from the old carpet. But your not spending your time in your room so who really cares right? Location is excellent! Price was great. Staff were... More

We really liked this one. We had two side by side rooms for four. The bathrooms were painted funny, but seemed clean and private. Wifi only worked in lobby. Kitchen was large and kinda fun the night we cooked there. Staff was great. Saturday night was pretty loud - but Sunday was very quiet. Coffe at cafe was the best... More

Could not fault the place, we arrived on friday for belfast pride. Everything was great, we paid upfront for 2 nights for 4 people. A friend came to meet us for us to go out for dinner and not realising the rules one of our party tried to bring her up and was then told we had to leave, just... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and leave your comments. I am pleased that you start off positively in saying that you could not fault our accommodation and that everything was great, and it's a shame that this general impression did not carry through to our staff and you felt that you had to leave us...

Really enjoyed my stay. Hostel is about 10 minutes walk to city hall. Staff was very friendly especially the young man on checking in and the man on duty at night. Room was clean and comfortable, bit of noise from the street but that's not the hostels fault. Nice atmosphere among other guests. Shower and toilet was very clean. I... More

Thank you for your review Johnny: clean, comfortable and friendly with a nice atmosphere is great! And it's good to know that occasional street noise didn't affect your impression overall. I hope we see you back up in Belfast again soon. Keep on hostelling! David More
