“Good vibes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

I was in Belfast for one night only, but thanks to guys from Global village (especially the Aussie) it was the best part of my trip to Ireland! The hostel is located in the University area, not far from the city centre. Good atmosphere, nice beds, and a very clean kitchen and bathrooms.
Thanks Brett and Foxie for the awesome night out!

I've been travelling around Europe for a few months staying in hostels and Global Village is by far the best. Such a great atmosphere, staff are amazing and really want everyone to have a fun time. Rooms are really spacious and clean as are all the facilities. Close to the city and museums etc. Cant recommend this place highly enough, am going back to Belfast again just so I can stay at GV!

I was only going to stay for 2 nights, but ended up staying more as I really loved the hostel. Probably the cleanest hostel i've ever stayed in (even hand sanitizer in bathrooms), comfy bed, hot showers and excellent social space. Every night the staff organised some kind of informal activity, movie night with popcorn on the house, drinks/heading towards local event/venue (free) - I felt at home, and not like I was being flogged anything like at other hostels (ie, come on our £10 tourist trap pub crawl). It was all very relaxed. Staff were fantastic, very knowledgable, and would go out their way to help to. Great location, close to shops and walking to major bus station. This really deserves 5 stars for a hostel!

Stayed here for a boozy weekend with a friend. Staff were brilliant Australian fella called paddy and a Canadian girl. Also a little bulldog who's part of the staff! The room wasn't the best but the people the atmosphere and how homely it felt made up for that! Probably the best hostel I've stayed in and would love to stay again has a brill time!

This place is worth every penny, It has a pool table, foosball, great kitchen with all the basic facilities there.

The staff are very warm and friendly. Recommended to everyone. Rooms have lockers so just carry a lock with you and you are sorted.

Clean hostel, friendly staff. Comfortable place to stay while in Belfast.

Location is good. Lots of pub & cafes around it. City town hall and shopping is 10 minutes walk.

Definately would recommend :)
