  • Very nice people, good facilities, and generally very comfortable! Bathrooms need some love...a little stinky and outdated in terms of paint, tiles, and sealings... a cheap redo could skyrocket the demand for this location!

  • Recommended for one or two nights. Cheap accommodation for a place to eat and sleep. Full kitchen at your disposal, but WiFi is terrible. If you have anything other than an iPhone, you have to sign in with a new password every time, also no WiFi in rooms. Couple of the staff members made me feel uncomfortable, but friendly. Make sure you have more then one dorm of ID as you need to give them it for the key card. Showers are individual rooms, but recommend sandals.

  • I chose this hostel is because the trip I booked would set off here but not because of its location. Actually it is a bit far away from the downtown. The sheet were dirty, the cleanliness in the room really need to improve. One of the staffs in the reception was not really nice, he would not like to rent us a hair dryer. WHAT? is it your own hair dryer??

  • There is no locker in the 4-bed room where I have stayed. I think it is quite inconvenient because I cannot leave my things in the room when I go out. Besides there is no hand-wash liquid in the toilet, which I do think the hostel should provide.

  • W stayed in the hostel for 2 nights. The staff was friendly and we had no complaints about the room. We booked a bustour to the giant's causeway because the office to do so was right in the hostel. Otherwise, we would probably not have done the tour and really missed something. The location is good, only 10 minutes walk from the city centre. Even though you can't book breakfast, you can get some for good value in the causeway café and they have a large selection you can choose from.
