Global Village was in a decent location and cost a good price. The hostel was fairly clean and had a small but nice common area. The staff was friendly and helpful. They provide breakfast, but consisted of sugary cereal, milk, and toast. Not every hostel provides breakfast, so this was a nice surprise in a pinch, but we only had it one day. We were in Room 7 and it lacked power outlets and there was only one see-thru cage locker per two beds. Not very secure. Overall an average experience

One of the best hostel I have ever been.

Awesome hostel - clean, loads of space, never a wait for the toilet/shower etc. Great if you need privacy but always something going on and a conversation to join in with. Cool staff who get everyone involved. As a solo female traveller, I felt at home and made friends straight away. A real backpackers hostel, had a brilliant time here.

Great hostel and great staff! Nice medium sized hostel in a good location. A plug for every bed is also very appreciated. Would recommend for sure.

Room was a little small but that's why you have the common room! We didn't hang out here much we were seeing the city! Staff was very helpful. Never had a problem getting in to the shared bathroom.

One person for one night , had to book a double private would've been good to have an option of single private. Staff were very helpful. Some hairs on the pillow and used tissue still in the room, nothing major and apart from that was clean.

Great location in university area. About a 5-10 minute walk from the BBC and about 10-15 minute walk from City Hall. Staff very nice. Clean and safe. Good facilities. Will definitely visit again. Only negative was they were strict on a companion checking out quite early - but it was on a busy Saturday, in fairness, and I wasn't rushed the following day when checking out. Highly recommend.

they let local party people stay there for events who have no consideration for people who are actually traveling. down 2 floors to use a WC. staff is nice though, and a bit far out from city centre

Nice hostel with friendly people. The only downside is that there are only toilets on the first two floors. Going down three floors at night for the toilet is not ideal.

No lift is very inconvenient for whom has many luggage

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi, Sorry to hear you found this so inconvenient, especially when carried your bags up the stairs when you checked in, and back down again when you checked out. Maybe you should check on hostels website if this is such an important issue to you. Thanks, Team GV

I stayed in five hostels throughout Europe, and this one was the best of all. Great location, great atmosphere, very clean, friendly staff, good security. The building is very interesting and historic, and adds a lot to the experience. The shower/toilet rooms were very very clean and organized. I had never been to Belfast before, but I really liked the vibe of the neighborhood (Botanic). There's also a Starbucks and convenience stores within a very short walking distance. Would come again.

Absolutely lovely hostel. Incredibly clean and amenities are fantastic. Fox and his staff are very helpful and create a friendly and fun environment. They took us out to see some local bars every night we were there. We stayed a lot longer than originally planned in Belfast thanks to Global Village :)
