I like the atmosphere there and there are activities almost every night,It's so lovely. And the staff are really friendly!


Lovely place to stay. Wifi did drop in and out a little bit but that was ok. Breakfast was good and all the staff were very helpful. Would come here again


Only a 15 minute walk into the centre of Belfast and as the city is quite small you can walk pretty much the entire thing. There is a large roll-out locker under each bunk bed so you can lock away your things and be next to them at night instead of them being in another room. Really friendly staff, the bearded one they call Jamie was especially kind and helpful.


Super clean bathrooms and friendly staff.


I had a great time at Global Village and got to meet some cool fellow travelers. Claire, one of the lovely members of staff, really made me feel at home. She helped me check in after I arrived in the evening, offered excellent recommendations for late dining in the area, and good conversation. It is a really chill place and in a great location to explore Belfast. The beds were comfortable too!

Global Village is a great hostel to stay at to see the sights, but also to meet some great people & relax in a safe area. The hostel feels really homely with it's accommodating staff & the fact that it's a smaller hostel. Everyone working there was quick to help you when you needed it & often went out of their way, like Claire who got me noodles & made sure I was included in things going on at the hostel. The place was clean & only 10min-ish walk to city centre. Would totally stay there again!


The people are all very welcome!
