Neat hostel, has the essentials. Stayed here with a group of friends for a night. Nice and close to local pubs and clubs, good central location. I found the bathrooms a little different, so don't be alarmed. However there wasn't anything terrible about this hostel at all.

Second time staying here, as it has everything. Nice small dorms/privates, etc., clean facilities, self catering kitchen and cafe, TV room, library/quiet room, and the rooms are well maintained - beds are already made, which is great when you arrive, travel weary. Nothing is too much trouble for the desk staff, whether within the hostel or in the city -... More

The dorms were pretty comfortable and had several power outlets. The showers were simple but quite convenient. WiFi was OK though sometimes problematic. Breakfast at the cafe was good and very cheap..

I stayed for 3 days in a bedroom of 4 beds. The Hostel is modern, pleasant and clean. It is situated in a Protestant area and not far from town Center. The Causeway Café is nice, you buy your breakfast for a good price. Free wifi but not in the bedroom, you have to connect downstairs near the reception. What... More

Hello yock02014 Many thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your recent stay at our Belfast International Youth hostel! Part of the reason that we only offer free WIFI in the communal areas of the hostel is to try and encourage our guests to come out of their rooms and meet other travellers so we can continue... More

I enjoyed my stay a lot! Got a 2bed dorm. Decent room. Small, but it was very well advertised that it was small, and it is actually the exact space you need. Clean, decent bathrooms. Just the shower that could be a bit better. Staff was very polite. The coffee place that is together with the hostel is amazing! I... More

You get what you pay for....not. The beds are dirty. The showers are mouldy. The toilet stinks and the room is like a prison cell. No carpets and awful wee blinds that do nothing for the abundance of light that shines through from the construction site view (how lovely). However, the staff are very friendly and the wee cafe has... More

A friend of mine told me after I told him where I had booked a place in Belfast: It does exactly what it is supposed to do - it gives you a place to sleep. Perfect description of this hostel. For our travel it was the worst place to stay. The location itself is fine, but the room was filthy,... More

This hostel is fine for the price you pay. The common areas and kitchen are good and well equipped. I saw travellers preparing full meals in the huge kitchen. If you don't want to prepare your own food the cafe is an option. Reception staff were very nice and helpful. I stayed in a private room, basic but adequate. Safe... More
