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.

Nice location in the centre of the Belfast party district and free wifi in the common room/reception. Not a lot of space to store my luggage in the 4 bed dorm but made due. The biggest complaint is that non of the toilets have any soap dispensers making the entire hostel a hazard. something that basic should be available throughout and the lack thereof would put me off from coming back.

Staff was excellent. But I wish they would have referred me to the tour company across the street rather than the one in the hostel. Also, wish breakfast was cheaper.

The door to our room was hard to close and as the first one to wake up in the morning, I realized that the last person to come in had not closed the door to the bedroom all the way for the night. All my things were in lockers so it was ok though. The breakfast was not free, but fairly priced as very good. No soap in the bathrooms. Good friendly environment downstairs...met some interesting people.
