Alil bit of a walk to central city. Close to train station and nightlife. Staff were very helpful and friendly, give us a map and showed us all the must see attractions in belfast. Great place to meet other traveller's, offers a free pub crawl, free breakfast and a £3 dinner every night. The only negative comment would be that the hostel could do with a few more bathrooms.


Too saturated the room with 12 beds, needs more space with that price. Showers were broken. Few toilets.


Everything in this hostel is broken, beds, showers, wi fi...

Amazing people and staff


Too few toilets and showers


We felt very much like in a family, and had a great stay. Pub crawl with Steven was the best.

A1 staff, lovely breakfast, cozy homey place, nice fresh beds, love the curtains round each bed, movies!...I'd stay again! but... work on those showers (and shower doors). Why not have some low volume music (any kind - even jazz or blues) so we can chat to each other without needing to shout! y


If your going to Belfast you must stay here. One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Wifi isn't always great but the curtains around the bed are excellent, the hot morning breakfast are really good and the staff are absolutely fabulous they make you comfortable and feel like your hanging with family. Special mention to Steve for his pub crawls which run every night and to the new manager who is wonderful so welcoming and easy to talk to. Will definitely be back :)

When I first arrived, the staff, were very welcoming and helpful. the rooms were quite small and beds squished together and there weren't many power points but at least they had curtains. it was about a 20 min walk to city hall.


Staff didnt vibe well and werent so welcoming. Almost felt clique-y. Major pros free breakfast and cheap dinner option.

Very friendly staff, helpful and always smiling. Delicious breakfast, short distance to shops, Botanic Garden (perfect place to relax), as far as I know there are some sightseeing tours arranged - they coming forward to the visitors. I recommend it to everyone, especially fun loving people (there's BBQ in the evening, you can tell people are having fun).


The full english breakfast was delicious, the staff were all very helpful!

Could be very good with improvements. Some lockers were broken so I had no locker. Cramped rooms. Needs additional toilets. Internet in the part of the building with the common room, kitchen and most of the dorms is very patchy that drops out constantly. One of the workers was very rude and there are too many volunteer workers who aren't sure if they are guests or working. Positives:Nice location, good pub crawl, friendly guests, free breakfast, full kitchen facilities, car parks Friendly owner


Excellent pub crawls. The showers where a game of Russian roulette. But the history pub crawl was the highlight of the stay. Booking on hostel world doesn't give the free tour to giants causeway.


The staff were very friendly and helpful and my stay here was good considering the low price. The only issues were that the shower door was broken and the shower was a little grotty. But overall it's a nice place to stay.


This place is amazing! Probably my favourite hostel. The staff were super friendly and made for an overall amazing atmosphere. You get an amazing hot breakfast of your choice. (Not enough functional lockers and near UNI street so there is a lot of noise). Honestly thanks for the great time you guys!


the breakfast was great! otherwise it was ok


I was planning to stay short term, but i stayed almost the whole week. The hostel was perfect, clean beds & rooms, amazing BREAKFAST they make for u for free, nice and friendly stuff. Best in Belfast! :)


We staied there just for one night, but everything was amazing. Friendly staff, nice place, and fresh cooked breakfast in the morning! Be back next time we visit in Northern Ireland
