“Couldn't ask for more!”
Reviewed April 6, 2012

This hostel is brilliant - comfy beds, decent showers, spacious communal areas and a well equipped kitchen, all kept spotless in a great location at a very reasonable price. However, the one thing that really completed our stay here was John - the nicest host you will ever meet. So friendly and welcoming, he couldn't do enough to help us. Anyone visiting Belfast, you will not find a better hostel, I will definitely be returning here next time I'm in the city!

A group of four of us stayed here for two nights over a weekend recently. The hostel was full to capacity but even then, the owner didn't charge us for a person who had dropped out at the last minute, which was incredibly kind of him. The rooms were absolutely lovely, nice, clean and bright with lots of space and the bed was the most comfortable I've ever had in a hostel. Breakfast was cereal and toast with hot drinks, basic but included in the very reasonable price so we were very happy with it. We didn't eat in the hostel apart from breakfast, but there were great food storage and cooking facilities. Everything was so cleaned and well looked after. The owner was great craic and very friendly. Best hostel I've stayed in, would definitely recommend!

It´s a great hostel, I could actually say that one of the best hostels I´ve ever stayed in. Clean, tidy, very comfortable and located in the heart of the students ´quarter in Belfast. John, the guy in charge, is a very friendly fellow, always willing to help and make you feel home. Highly recommended!!

We spent a week in the hostel and the stay was very comfortable and succesful! The house was adeccuated to our needs and we were so happy because there is a Play Station and a big TV; the sofas were also very comfortable. The kitchen is a bit small but it works very well. The hostel was very clean. Everybody who is going to Belfast should stay in this hostal because it´s cheap and better than other expensive hotels.

Not only 10 minutes walk from city centre but also clean and with brand new amenities. It's got even a football table and computers. Best of all the manager: he just so kind and helpful. He can arrange anything you need and can give you useful tips about visits in and around Belfast as well as about the city's nightlife and interesting events. It's just inexpensive top quality for a hostel. A must to stay at if you ever visit Belfast.

I stayed in this hostel six day whit my friends and as I've never stayed in one before, at first I had my doubts. However, when we arrived there I was really impressed. Everything was so clean and enterteining and you had the independence you can have in your own house. What's more, the staff, in our case, John was so kind and caring. The accomodation they offeris excellent: the rooms were clean and they have enough space for everybody depite being a large group, the kitchen provided everything and having things for breakfast in the morning like bread, tea, coffe, etc. was fantastic. The location was also excellent because it isn't too far from the city center and there is a bus stop very near where you can catch a bus every 10 minutes, very practical. I just can say that is a great place to have a great time!

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!
