2 night stay in a private twin room with ensuite. As a hostel, this is a great place to stay! The rooms are basic, but clean, warm and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and they don't hide the fact it's designed as a wet-room so no surprises there! We used the communal kitchen both nights; it's well stocked with utensils... More

My friends and I stayed for three nights up to New Years Eve, had a good experience of Belfast. The hostel was simple for your needs, food was ok and cheap, central location. We could only get Wi-Fi in the reception area which is a bit primitive these days. Unfortunately our opinion of this hostel is tarnished having been charged... More

Hello Kevin and thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. As you know, check out time is explicitly stated as being 11am and your party did not check out until 12.30pm. Late check outs mean our housekeeping team must work beyond their shift which of course they must be paid for and could also result in... More

Room was clean (I had single en-suite room), linens clean. Location is great - not far to the very core of the city, and around the corner to the lively Queens district. Reception people helpful. The café downstairs is pretty good, indeed- variety, service, price. But they only work in the mornings. Wi-Fi is good, but only at the lobby... More

Very helpful staff. Clean rooms. TV Lounge and Library were a bonus. System with the self-catering kitchen is well organised. Location is really convenient for Queens University and the City Centre. Would definitely recommend and I would stay at the hostel again. Also excellent value for money.

Only stayed one night but everything was clean, staff was helpful and facilities were great. The location is superb and a stay here is definitely a lot of bang for your buck! Only thing that could make it better is if the wifi was everywhere rather than just in the lobby.

Hello darlingdancer and thank you so much for leaving us such a nice review. In relation to the w-fi, we do provide free wi-fi in the lobby only in order to encourage guests to come out of their rooms and interact with each other in the communal areas as part of the worldwide hosteling ethos.

After so many crowded and noisy hostels around Europe, I really appreciated the quiet spaciousness of this place. Even on a Friday night it was tranquil. The beds, rooms and toilets were clean and the lockable drawers under the bunk beds fulfilled their purpose. The staff were friendly and super efficient. The cafeteria worked fine as a place both to... More

This hostel was clean, quiet and easy to walk to from the Botanic rail station or 8 blocks from Great Victoria Street. Breakfast was reasonable priced and vegan friendly. Clean shared kitchen. Good neighborhood close the the University and the botanic gardens. WiFi in the lobby.

The youth hostel is a good place to stay if you're trying to save money but not much else. There isn't really a common room, more like a lobby. People there didn't seem to be socializing or even all that excited to be there. The hostel offers a pretty big kitchen which is a bonus for anyone wanting to cook.... More
