The hostel was terrible. 10 people in one room and no possibility to open a Window everyone was sick and the air was used up. Homeless people Were hanging out in the common room, the shower was broken, the breakfast dreadful. If you can go to lagan backpackers it is a lot better

There was mould on the bread for breakfast which isn't that appealing. Most of the cooking plates don't work. It's hard to find the hostel, you have to remember the house number otherwise you'll just walk past it as I did like 3 times...

good stay, clean rooms and the staff were friendly and helpful. For the price this hostel was the best in Belfast. Only issue we had was the stoves not working properly, but all in all a great stay.

The hostel was very hard to find from the outside. Althouh we had the exact address we weren't sure if we're right cause there was no sign at the outside of the building. Also the mentioned parking possibilities for the hostel were just free spaces on the road, which had nothing to do with the hostel. However, it was good that parking is free in this street, although you have to be lucky to get a free space. The breakfast buffet was nice and overall we enjoyed our stay.

Very noisy along a busy road - windows very old and half decaying with a lot of molding - When we stayed there were many groups of noisy students, the hostel was full. A great thanks to the young lady who let us have a double room instead of a mixed dormitory ! The showers and a few toilets were out of use too. It remains good value for money as it is very cheap (keep it that way !!) and the kitchen facilities are correct, and breakfast is included. And the mattresses were good !

I enjoyed my stay there. The place was well kept, clean and the atmosphere was great. Some minor issues though that I think could be addressed: 1. The closing and opening times of the kitchen and living room were too restrictive. I personally had to leave at 7am each morning and so could not have breakfast there nor store my lunch in the fridge for the next day. 2. The dorms were uncomfortably hot! With up to 10 people in 1 room, there is no need to have the heat on that high.

Great hostel, only issue is with wifi in rooms and the fact the common room (where there is good wifi) is locked up at 10 during the week

Although there was always someone of the staff around at night, it got very noisy and sleeping was close to impossible. There were only two sockets in the 10 people dorm and the window couldn't be opened. It seems, in the 5 days we stayed there, the bathrooms were cleaned only once. In the dining hall there weren by far not enough chairs for all the people staying at the hostel.

This hostel had a great location, perfect for exploring the city on foot, however they require a 5 pound key deposit, but do not have 24 hour reception, causing me to have to slide the room key under the door and lose my deposit because I had an early flight to catch. Also the kitchen and lounge close at 10pm causing you to have to hangout in your room and disturb your roommates.

Booked for 3 nights at this hostel and only stayed for 1. Didnt shower there as I felt cleaner than showering in the dirty bathrooms there. There was no atmosphere, staff weren't very helpful at all. Dodgy area did not feel safe inside or outside hostel. Would not recommend for girls travelling alone.

The whole place is a huge mess!! Most people staying here are quite older or are living/ working there so there is no atmosphere. You can hardly get into reception as the whole hallway is piled up with bags of dirty laundry!

The hostel is alright. It needs a bit of deep cleaning and renovations especially the kitchen. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are good. The floor of my dorm room was a bit dirty and needed a good sweap.
