It's a small, comfortable hostel. Nice and clean bathroom facilities. Biggest downsides: Mattresses are worn out, so in the middle of the mattress you almost lie on the slatted frame. Also, steps outside of the room are easily hearable.

Had to pay extra pound per day for unknown reason at arrival day. Payment wasn't reduced by the previously paid 12% during booking on Hostel world. I have not recived a account for service. Understand all that, young don*t care about it, but I do not support it. However wish them all the best..

Global Village runs itself like a village, dense with community and friendship, entirely efficient in operation, and with welcoming, comfortable facilities. The staff is almost always hanging out in the common lounge where there is a TV and books, or in the kitchen with billiards. They are always available for help or travel advice, and would go for a drink as soon as shoot pool with you. The location was perfect for me--out of the center but within walking distance. You can't go wrong here!

I was only staying here as I was going to see a gig, and didn't have anyhwere else to stay, the place is in a really good location, not far the centre if Belfast (google maps says 20 minute walk ot the city hall, you could do it in 15), the staff are really firendly, at weekends it seems they have nights out, probably got things hapeningduring the week, the staff member offered me a chance to get a few beers, but ihad to head to the gig, nice offer though. Good facilities too.

I had a great time at Global Village! I appreciated some members of the staff taking us out on the town at night. Will definitely be coming back next time I'm in Belfast.

Unique hostel experience catered specifically to backpackers. Felt like a home rather than a dorm. Best staff I've met in a hostel (they even took us on a tour of the facilities). A bit of a walk from the city centre but adjacent to Queens University and Botanic Garden. Would definitely stay again.

The location is a little bit far from city center & attractions but still walkable, it is also close to so many restaurants & food stores. The staffs were friendly, room was big & spacious

Global village at Queen's Belfast is the one of the best including five star hotels throughout my travel experience. Adding to all the categories which I gave the hightest mark, I enjoy most their spacious rooms and all other facilities such as kitchen area and showers.It has been one of the sources to go to Belfast happily whenever I attend any kinds of meetings and work.Thank you all the staff, particularly, owner, Mark!. You are truly a good mannered and hardworking, handsome, youung man!.

For those visiting this hostel it does not have a kitchen which is a huge disadvantage for people budgeting. They also charged 4 pounds for breakfast, but you're not allowed to eat your own food you brought. The staff were not very friendly. Although the rooms were very clean and comfortable.

Loved this place! Staff are awesome, very homey feel, and without intention or effort I fell into a comfortable group of fellow travelers. I wish all hostels were like this, I had a really lovely time. A bit far from the center but a beautiful walk. ALSO if you have time go on the game of thrones tour with Derek on McCombs tours, that was the highlight to my stay in Belfast!
