4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Staff was helpful and polite. Room clean and smelled strongly of bleach, so it clearly had been sanitized, which is not a bad thing. Nice as far as hostels go. WiFi left a great deal to be desired - signal seemed best and oddly-focused over two couches in the lobby, which were usually very busy - data throughput speed when... More

At the other end of the intersection, the conflict between the Ulsters Volunteer Force and the Irish Republican Army is known as the "Troubles". When I walked into the lobby it reminded me of the YHA HI in Zagreb Croatia. After coming from a hostel filled with long stayers, this place was quiet in comparison. Plus the kitchen was super...

I stayed here for three nights during the first weekend of May. The location of the hostel was good, just 15 mins walk to the city center. But the biggest problem to me was that there was no WiFi connection at the rooms, not enough plug points too. The surrounding of the hostel was very noisy due to a club... More

The hostel itself is great, the rooms and showers are clean, the beds are comfy, and there is a nice cafe downstairs. The local area is perhaps not the most welcoming - it is bedecked in flags and painted flagstones. But it's very close to the city centre and the main bus and train stations.

The staff are really friendly and helpful, but the rooms were very very warm and noisy, People coming in and out of the room all night, chatting loudly and someone (she was drunk) actually tired to get in the bed I was in! The showers weren't that clean and only one was working. The breakfast in the cafe, was tasty... More

The hostel is good and clean. There are some stuff that need to be improved but the principal is offered with quality. I was really satisfied for choosing this hostel. Just more 3 ladies in my bedroom, near the city center and the main touristic points, excellent price, hot water and good bed. The wi-do is for free but doesn't... More

Hello from Belfast International Youth Hostel. Thank you for taking time to leave feedback after your recent stay. I am pleased that you appreciated our central location: most places on the tourist trail in Belfast are within walking distance: or an easy trip by public transport. Our last few Tripadvisor reviews have commented on the cleanliness of the hostel, so... More

Great location, walking distance from Europa Bus station, 15 minutes walk from the City Hall and a very short taxi ride from the King's hall. Clean beds and toilets, friendly staff, it had more the feeling of an hotel than a hostel. Definitely coming back next time I'll be in Belfast. Please note you will be asked to leave a... More

Hello from Belfast, Thank you for your great comments (clean and friendly is what we aim to be) and for posting some pictures too. That looks like room 206 to me: and the view from the window illustrates what I love about Belfast: as a small city surrounded by hills and on the edge of Belfast Lough you can almost... More
