Have stayed at the Farset on many occasions. This is 1st review I've done of it however. Haven't a clue why it's classed as a hostel though as it's far superior to many hotels I've stayed in over the years. Rooms are spacious, always spotlessly clean, tv and coffee/tea making facilities provided and iron and board is supplied if requested... More

I'd read the mixed bag of reviews on here so wasnt sure what to expect. It's not a 5star place but it doesn't claim to be, the reception staff were friendly, rooms basic but clean. I guess the location might put some off but again it was fine for me. The only slight issue was the strong smell of paint... More

It is very good. And it also allow to inject some money in the "community". I went with my partner. Perhaps best to go by cab if u mind walking. Breakfast was good. Not too far from where action used to take place. The street is in the history of the area. I need to make two hundreds words but... More

I had provided a very positive review of the Farset some time ago and you can see details of that by checking out my previous submissions. Some of what I wrote then still stands but I'm afraid a recent experience of the Farste Hotel requires a significant re-review. I made a booking via email on for a Saturday in July... More

Every time I have stayed in Belfast I have stayed at the Farset. The value for money is outstanding and the friendliness of the staff is second to none. What you see is what you get from the Farset and it is an ideal base for exploring the city. Would always recomment this place to anyone going to Belfast.

One of us has stayed here four times and the other two times. Around four pounds for a taxi ride to the heart of the City. A little more to the Titanic Museum. Full breakfast available upon request and cereal and serve yourself toast, yogurt, orange juice, tea, and cheese make serve yourself a great option. You can watch the... More

Booked the Farset after it was recommended by a friend. Absolutely loved it. The rooms were clean and well kept. The breakfast was amazing and really enjoyed by all. The staff were terrific, nothing was too much bother for them. Thanks Ruth and her staff. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a clean and affordable place... More

Always bring my school groups here due to friendliness n value n location. Out of city centre on Springfield Road between communities. Wonderful view across pond of distant Belfast. Breakfast included and can arrange for take out lunches and dinners on location.
