  • Not what I expected... the staff there were very nice but the hostel lacked a lot of things, like plugs in the bedrooms and mirrors. The bathrooms were not very clean and there were not many showers either. The bed also was very uncomfortable... The breakfast was ok.

  • The hostel was great. The staff were helpful and social; and the atmosphere was awesome. There was a free hot breakfast in the mornings and cheap dinner options. The curtains around each bed made the rooms more private; however, there weren't enough lockers in each room. The worst part about this hostel was the bathroom situation. There is one bathroom per floor with approx 3-4 bedrooms. This made the line up in the morning ridiculous; and for that reason alone I wouldn't come back.

  • The staff were so knowledgeable about Belfast and were so accommodating! The rooms were really clean as were the bathrooms. The hot breakfast every morning was perfect, as was not having to clean up afterwards! The kitchen could use a couple extra knives and such, just when everyone is cooking at once, but I couldn't have asked for a better hostel!

  • The staff here was super friendly and helpful - they recruited others to join a Black Taxi tour with me, so I didn't get stuck paying the full 30 pounds. There was a real commitment to making sure people were connecting and having fun! The rooms lacked individual security - could not actually lock the lockers provided in the room. There were also earwigs in the room. The kitchen could have been cleaner as well, but it was a solid experience.

  • Nice hostel. A bit far from the city center, but in a nice quiet neighbourhood. Very good breakfast, good wifi. Not the best facilities, but they work just fine. The staff is very helpful and polite.

  • Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was great. While it was 5-10 minute walk from the bus station, it was very easy to find. Grocery stores are close by. Belfast sights are not to far to walk to - Belfast is a good walking city to begin with. We really liked the Giants Causeway bus tour - we got picked up right from the hostel. Note that you'll be dropped off at the tour office, but it's easy to get back to the hostel. Friendly place to stay.

  • Really enjoyed our stay here. Location was a little out of town but it was possible to walk into the centre. The hostel itself was quite cosy and could benefit from a few extra showers but otherwise it was a great atmosphere with lots of other friendly travellers. Staff were very friendly and more than happy to give advice on Belfast and surrounds and share local knowledge. The kitchen was also small but efficient. Wifi worked well and rooms were a little crowded but clean. We would stay again!
