Little bit overpriced for a hostel. Could not use the kitchen during lunch time. Was ok though.

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.

Great Hostel apart from that i brought some KFC on friday night and was told i could not bring the food inside. It was like 3am luckily KFC was still open so i went ands ate it inside their. If it was not i would have ad to eat the food on the street. After paying money for a room you should be able to bring food into it. For this reason i wont be staying here again.

Large hostel. Has all the required facilities. Large dining room with an attached cafeteria and kitchen. Can either make your own food or buy it. The dining room was good for socialising at night with fellow travellers. The staff werent overly talkative but told you all you needed to know. Allowed me to keep my bag there all day even though i only stayed one night.

Overall good. In the en-suite wet-room bathrooms a couple of hooks attached to the door would be helpful as there is nowhere dry to put your clothes/towel out of the wet.

I think most of the problems are a result of the people staying at the hostel rather than the hostel itself. That said, the morning staff member was a grumpy, surly, impolite misanthrope, afternoon shift was the complete opposite. Toilets were often strewn with paper all over the floor and urine on the seat. Both nights I was woken twice in the early hours by people coming in at aaround 1.30 and 3.00 AM. One of these was quite drunk and was bumping into things and dropping stuff on the floor.

A bit of a tired hostel but comfortable and clean. Rooms really need sound proofing as you could hear all outside noise and people moving around the hostel.

At the end of a 38 day trip the hostel was very good, we stayed there because the tour to Giants Causeway could be arranged at same location, I am planning to bring family members back in a few years, and though they don't think they would like hostels, I there 74 year old mother and grandmother think it is time they got real and realized how great hostels are and the benefits they offer for longer and meaningful travel. I was a tour guide in Scotland and SW England for several years,loved tour.
