the main floor toilet was out of order.

the showers on our floor were out of order (being renovated) - the showers on the floor down worked and were nicely renovated but the two showers there have glass doors and were apparently unisex - how does that work?

the toilet on our floor had no toilet paper.

someone was evicted from our room and when we moved in he still had a key.

No lockers to be found

WIFI didn't work at all

Kitchen was nasty and leaking.

One person found an empty vodka bottle in her room, another found a disgarded t-shirt. were the room cleaned at all?

Carpet needs to go. So old dirty and nasty.

I've stayed at plenty of hostels and this one was the worst. I usually stay at YHA hostels and this is why. Of the non YHA hostels this one was still pretty gross.

Room Tip: Stay at a YHA.

I really liked this hostel, i had stayed in the brilliant Paddys Palace in Derry and then hopped on their free link bus and went to paddys palace belfast. For only £10 per night i got a nice 4 bed dorm a 1 minute walk from queens university Belfast. not bad eh!
Now they also offered me a free trip to the giants causeway because i stayed 3 nights
ive not seen that kind of value anywhere. thanks a million

Here's a little before an after for Paddy's Palace Belfast:

I stayed at Paddy's Palace Belfast on my very first tour of Ireland in March 2012. I remember the bitter cold, a tripping in room tap, clogged toilets, no shower and a duvet that made my new jeans smell so terrible they had to be thrown away.

But Don and the hostel lads and ladies have brought it on in leaps and bounds over the last month and half. I have been up twice during the work and they really got stuck in. It looked better every time.

Forget all the negativity from the posts of July and earlier (basically anything below this post since it hasn't been given a look in since August). If you have stayed here before, go back and give it another go, because it's more than a place to lay your head now. The TV room is a place you actually want to hang out in and the walls look like a rainbow threw up on them... instead of... erm... something else.

Congrats again to the team. Be proud :3 I'm sure they will only be continuing to improve.

Stayed one night as part of a Paddywagon tour. There was one shower for our whole tour - it was cold and a trickle - filthy too. They were painting at the time and there was paint, ladders, and rubbish everywhere. The kitchen was absolutely filthy and had a puddle of water covering the floor - which we discovered was leaking through the light fixtures from the upstairs bathroom. Nasty.

Loved this place! Does need a little work but its getting there! Small walk into city centre! The two girls that run the hostel are very friendly and willing to help out! So much fun we had with all the staff! Lots of tours available! Kitchen was great for a cook up! Rooms were in good condition! Very cool hostel

I stayed here one night and it was disgusting. I know hostels are not luxury hotels or anything and I've stayed in other hostels so I can compare. This was the nastiest I've ever stayed in. I wanted to just pay the extra money and go to the B&B. I stayed with about 10 other people and not one of us felt comfortable showering there. The ceilings leaked on us constantly and in every room it seemed like. The "breakfast" is a joke. It's toast. Wow... There are not near enough bathrooms and only half of those there actually work. Totally gross! And the staff acted like we were the worst thing. She didn't speak to us after her rude introduction and no one spoke to her. What a dump!

Room Tip: Book somewhere else!
