The location of the hostel is very close to the city center. The rooms are quite big for a hostel and very clean. Also the sanitäre rooms a very clean. There is also a Cafe where you can buy a breakfast in the ground floor. The only negative thing is, that there is no real common room where you can... More

The hostel is really great, nice people, comfortable rooms, really clean, good facilities - bathrooms clean and private and plenty of them. You feel really safe in here too. The cafe is amazing too, you don't get the food included but it is really cheap and really good, lots of options too for veggies. The only thing that could have... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and it was great. The rooms and bathrooms were all clean and the showers had good pressure and we're always hot. All the staff were helpful, especially Phil! The kitchen to cook with is great and you can also buy from the cafe there as well (although I didnt). The one tiny thing was... More

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.
