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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

I was recently attending a course in this hostel and had a bad accident and was shocked at the lack of concern when I was told by Ruth very quickly this has never happened before (I advised her well it has now and you can never say that again and I would like it fixed so it dosent)I was then...

Stayed here for 5 nights recently and frankly it was pretty poor. The lady who I believe manages the place was very nice indeed and would go out of her way to assist you. The rooms were a bit manky with mould on the shower curtain, mouldy lamp covers, blood on the sheets, no new towels, bin never emptied in...
