Pros: love the shower, the wall art, the kitchen, the ambience. Mark is very helpful especially when I reached at 1am. My bunk bed is special with a individual power supply for charging. Near to Botanic train station. 20mins walk to city. Cons: none

Great hostel. Nice decor, clean rooms and bathrooms, friendly staff. One thing that is needed is reading lamps at the bunkbeds so that the main light does not need to be turned on at night. And a couple chairs/shelves in the rooms wouldn't hurt. No surfaces to put anything down... Otherwise, great stay.

Nice clean place to lay your head. Plenty of families staying making the place seem a little more secure and homely.

Global Village is like meeting up with an old acquaintence from high school & you have such a good time and wonder why you didn't hang out more often and when is the next time you will see each other. They have 24 hours reception and the staff is very helpful and accomodating. Jaime is insane in a very good way and if you are lucky enough you might get a chat with the owner Mark. This was my first solo hostel stay and I never felt lonely as all of the staff are friendly. They keep it very clean.

Staff were warn and inviting, and never too busy to help. Only stayed one night, but wish we could have stayed longer. Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Belfast.

Location near Botanic station is excellent. Some of the beds (particularly the one I had, unfortunately) are uncomfotably sagging, to where I could feel the wire mesh under the mattress.

Global Village was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The facilities were amazing - they had good wifi, a nice common area with Netflix and other TV options, free printing (so helpful when you're traveling!), clean bathrooms and showers, and free breakfast. The location on the south side near the Ulster Museum and cool restaurants was great - only a 20 minute walk to the city center. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. If I return to Belfast, I will stay here again!

This hostel was excellent, located in a cute university neighborhood. The rooms were clean and comfortable, you could shower in a private bathroom or the communal bathrooms, laundry was easy, and breakfast was acceptable. The wifi connection was good. Everyone that I met there was fun to hang out with and easy to befriend - the kitchen was actually a great social area - very lively. The staff was very energetic and helpful! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hostel, and would use it again.
