“Really nice place, clean, nice staff, good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

This place rocks. Folks were so kind and friendly. Nice kitchen, great rooms, good breakfast in the morning, all this for 20 pounds pp in a double. Really good value. Would always recommend. Very close to the city and to Queens University and Ulster Museum.

Extremely close to the city center and bus station. As soon as I arrived the staff were extremely helpful, especially with suggesting things to do. I had wanted to get some more background on belfast and the troubles they had and the staff managed to get me onto a tour that was just about to leave (which was perfect because I had limited time there).

The hostel itself was really nice, lots of shared spaces and comfortable lounging area which means people only really went into their rooms to sleep. Which meant you could actually get to sleep whatever time you wanted.

Breakfast was nice, the showers were hot and everything was clean. Easily one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at.

Excellent value...stayed in the 14 bed dorm (if you have trouble sleeping, then an easy fix with some earplugs). Sheets, blankets, pillows, lockers under the beds provided. Bathrooms were clean. Staff was friendly Good amenities (lounge areas, kitchen, laundry, lounge). Close to the bus station and downtown. Met some really cool people but it's your choice if you just want a place to sleep or if you want to be friendly and talk to new people. As a woman, I felt safe and I would recommend this hostel to anyone.

Enjoyed my stay here. Best thing about it was that it was so close to the city centre (on University Road.) Close to bars, eateries and an ATM. Helpful staff. Clean beds and bathrooms, eclectic/boho decor,and a nice vibe to the place. Friendly people staying at the hostel when I was there. Free internet access, pool table (with huge beer stain on it unfortunately) TV room. Remember to leave your name on the huge graffiti wall in the dining room.

The service was incredible, from when we arrived til when we left. They created a fun, friendly, relaxed atmosphere that lasted our entire stay, one that is required of hostels. The rooms were great, clean and tidy, with lockable draws for our belongings. It's in an area full of hostel options but I am so glad I got this one, for it's atmosphere and all the services and facilities you require.

The staff made this place for us. They had great recommendations for places to see, pubs and restaurants. The dorms were spacious and the bathrooms were clean and modern. they even had good recommendations for places to stay and go in the rest of Northern Ireland. 100% recommendation. Just take their advice, you wont regret it.
