Fantastic hostel! I had a brilliant time here. It really felt like I was in a big home with a bunch of friends. The social areas are great but the hostel works because of the kindness and friendliness of the staff members, who are in danger of giving Australians a good name ;) special mentions to Chad, Claire, Jamie and Tom...thanks for helping make my stay such fun! The reason I haven't given 100%? The beds aren't especially comfortable!

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.

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!

Free wifi, staff worked really hard to make sure everything went really well, really friendly staff, pool table, free pasta/rice/tea/coffee and breakfast each morning. It is close by to shops/ pubs/ cafes, but it is a good 20min walk into cathedral quarter (where most of nightlife is). If this place had lights and power points at every bed head it would make it a little bit user friendly in the bedrooms.

Friendly staff and a good location. Hostel was clean and had excellent facilities. Good, clean bathrooms and a nice, free breakfast. Only issue was that we were in room 10 on the top floor on a cold night and it was absolutely freezing with no heating in it. Went downstairs and was given extra blankets although some of these were better than others. But it was an exceptionally cold night!

Jamie Tump made the stay very enjoyable.
