After traveling around Europe for 6 months I can easily say that Global Village is the BEST!!! It has a homely atmosphere that is hard to find in other hostels. You can chill out in the lounge room & watch some movies or socialise with guests & staff in the kitchen & beer garden with a few drinks in hand. Big up to Mark & Fox. Check out their band 'Explosion Soundsystem' for good Reggae vibes . Also big up to Welshy Celyn, Aussie Todd, Señorita Nai, Frenchy Antoine & the Ginger Beard Man

The best hostel I've ever stayed in. It's really clean, the bathroom speacilly, do if you don't like to share a bathroom you don't have to worry, because it's clean all the time. The beds are good, our dorm was small but it was completly ok, since the lockers had enough space to put all of our things in it. Apart from that, we felt so much at home because the staff is sooooo nice, speacially Celyn, who is awesome!!!

The location is a bit of a walk from the town centre, but the hostel itself was very nice. We only stayed one night, but the facilities were clean and the room (8 bed dorm) was spacious, and included small lockers. The staff were extremely friendly, and we're happy to help with anything you needed. Overall, it had a great atmosphere.

This is a really awesome hostel. It was the first one I went to, but the community building here is awesome if you want it- the kitchen is a great place to meet people, and pub crawl night is the best! Highly recommend if you are a travel or alone.

Staff is AMAZING..Blue haired girl was in charge when I was there and she was amazing and on point and super friendly. She would engage people that were there by themselves which is really important being a lone traveler. Aussie guy knows tons about Scotland so ask him. Barcelona girl is super cute, help here with English its not so easy to learn in Ireland. French girl left when I was there but she was super cool. I want to go back here just to hang with staff. Stay here over other big hostel

The Hostel was great. People who working there are welcomy, nice and help you in you have any question. The place is not too far from the center. I didn't plan anything special when I was in Belfast and the Hostel gave me a lot of choices, pieces of advice for nice things to do there. I recommand this place if you want to spend few days in Belfast. ;)

Awesome hostel, definitely one of the best I've ever stayed at. All of the staff were extremely kind and fun, they made sure to include everyone for the fun stuff and helped out whenever. This is a great place for solo travellers- it's so easy to meet people in the lounge, kitchen or back patio. Stay here!
