The young night porter Lee was excellent. He made the evening go very quickly when my dormitory buddies were snoring.

The blankets were very dirty... it should not be too difficult to clean them. It seemed they were no washed.

The location was great . However in few beds the lights were not working and heating arrangement was not good ( for eg room 216). The showers were pretty basic with inadequate number of shelves. However the beds were good and not squeaky. The staff were good, helpful and very pleasant. Shakya, India

The three frying pans were bossed/warped so not suitable for an electric cooker. One hot tap had no top, one top was loose and another was constantly dripping. There were very few tea spoons or dessert spoons. Otherwise things were fine.

Free and secured parking is a huge bonus, for guests with a car. This is not always available at all hostels-therefore important to retain this bonus.

Carpet in my unit was disgusting, totaly worn out filthy and stank. Staff were brilliant, polite, accomodating, healpfull and good natured, even Joseph took it in his stride when I freaked him out as I was departing early, he was on his way upstairs, I prefer not to use the lift and came down the fire stairs.

Excellent location, 5 minutes from Europa station, 10 minutes to the city centre, all by foot! The kfc and tesco very near were also a good thing! The staff was just amazing, lovely people, always willing to help and tell us about the history of the city! Stayed in a double room and it was also very warm, which is good in the winter! The only problem is that you can hear everything that happens outside your room and vice versa, but that didnt make a huge difference... Highly recommend!!

Good hostel. We were on a budget so the price is what attracted us. Slightly longer walking distance to attractions than other hotels/hostels, but we were happy to walk to save money. Thank you so much to the lovely reception guy who recommended a local pub for a late dinner, and even gave us a €10 voucher. Very kind!

Filthy hostel in general but the bedding and bathrooms were clean. A walk to city center but the location is good and close to a Tesco express. Breakfast prices were good even for frugal traveler. Room was not ensuite. Though there was a sink in it, which turned out to be more bothersome than helpful. Only saw one person on staff during my two day stay. The kitchen was a mess to figure out. Rooms didn't have proper storage area but did have two lockers which you'd need your own lock for.

Is a regular hostel but with a few good things: It have a big kitchen that is really usefull and clean and the Causeway Cafe dowstairs make good breaksfast and really fast. We arranged there a tour to the Giants Causeway and was quite good. The only complaints is about one member of staff is a little unfriendly but the rest of them were really helpfull.
