“A Wonderful Stay!”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Traveling as a pair of 19 year old girls can be daunting, but we have never felt safer or more comfortable at a hostel as we did at city backpacker. Not only are the rooms clean, warm and beds comfortable, the entire hostel has a vibe just like home. John, the manager, was absolutely lovely, and very helpful. Despite the 15 minute walk into town, the hostel is actually in a prime location for travellers our age as it is right in the student district near the university, meaning plenty of pubs for us to hang out at! We only stayed 2 nights at this hostel, but they were definitely good ones, and despite the 10am checkout, John was more than happy for us to leave our bags in the back room of the hostel for the day and come back and use the kitchen facilities before our departure late that afternoon. A wonderful stay and fabulous hospitality, would definitely stay again. Thankyou John!

Only found out recently about this place and it lived up to its name. Great place, very clean, chill out area, comfy beds, good showers and then toast or cereal and tea or coffee in the morning. Only a 15 min dander from city centre or just hop on a bus. Parking to the rear or on street parking. What more do you want?? Will definitely be back and would encourage others to try it out. Thanks to John for his hospitality!!

Was never one for hostels but to be honest this is a hostel only in name, cleanliness second to none, very modern and well maintained throughout, beds and rooms are very comfortable with all the needs, internet, TV, lovely kitchen & chill out area... location is brilliant, convenient to city centre and all major sites & sounds of belfast... I had to leave early the next morning (6:30am) and John (The Manager) was only too happy to get up that bit earlier and have the breakfast ready... just go stay, simple as that...

My boyfriend and I stayed here on a Saturday night during a city break to Belfast. We had the double room, which we were surprised to find was even ensuite. The bed was raised, so there was actually space underneath for a sofa to rest our legs after a long day in town. The hostel has just come under new management (John the new manager is lovely) and it still has all the things going for it which were mentioned in previous reviews: spotless clean, very nice staff, good breakfast, well heated room, nice linen. Can definitely recommend it, if you don't mind the walk to town.

What a great hostel. We stayed on a 6 bed dorm which had only the three of us there. The hostel is brand new, really clean. I loved the wwf doona covers! I really can't say enough about how impressed we were.
The staff were really friendly and informative.
The only issue is I found it a bit of a walk into the centre of town. Otherwise, it was perfect.

This is the place you should stay. It´s super clean, everything is new and pretty, good breakfast, really comfortable beds and couches. You´ll have internet, laundry, TV, and the staff is great! They are very helpful with tourist information and very friendly. It´s close to the beautiful Botanic Gardens, pubs and Museum, only 10 minutes walk to the city centre. Would definitely choose it again!

Had bookied another hostel just down the road from city backpacker but when i went in the smell was old and fusted and the rooms were unclean ..... Made a phone call to city backpackers about availibilty ... Sorted!!
A few minutes walk later and i thought i ws in a hotel ... Clean, tidy and super cool staff, one of our female friends even took a shine to one of the staff lol.
My advice to anyone seeking a hostel in belfast .... Belfast City Backpackers !!! Checked online with hostelword and the rating does not do it justice .... Trust me on this one !! :)
