As a group of 5 lads we received a bit of a frosty reception on arrival due to problems the hostel had previously had with all male groups. Found this a bit of a shame to be honest as had never experienced anything of the like in the many hostels I have stayed in before. However, once this was sorted out the hostel was absolutely fine and a good base for us - we hardly spent any time there apart from to sleep. probably wouldn't recommend due to the welcome we received though

The staff were amazing. They organised a large group dinner which they cooked for us for a very small fee. 15 people joined in for dinner which made it very fun and enjoyable. Great shower too!

It's a great hostel experience and encourage any travelers or backpackers passing through Belfast to keep an open mind and open heart.

Hostel was mostly clean and the beds were brilliantly comfy. The occasional cooked meals were great and staff were always willing to help recommend things to do and how to get places.

Just down the street from the train station, the only thing I would say is needed is a bigger sign outside we walked pass it a couple of times however it was dark outside, so maybe a light up one? Free breakfast was a plus here, clean rooms and good location would stay again in a minute

Awesome place! Super chill atmosphere with lots of sweet people around. Staff are great, super fun to hang out with. Coolest decor I have seen in a hostel! Rooms are nice and big with baskets and mirrors, which was nice. Breakfast was awesome, best selection of toast toppings I've seen so far! (Which includes peanut butter) great rooms to chill in, with lots of movies to choose from and pool/ping pong tables. Overall great stay!! :)

Very nice hostel, with a great staff! They make the atmosphere very friendly and welcoming. The room and bathrooms were clean and breakfast was good. The location is good, about a 15 minute walk to the center. Overall, I highly recommend this place and would stay there again.

By far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. As soon as you walk in the door you feel like you're at home. The staff are all so fun and welcoming and the facilities super clean. It's so easy to meet people over drinks and games of pool in the beer garden or over the delicious dinners made by Chris and Bob. Honestly had so much fun here. Will definitely be back!

I really enjoyed everything. The staff were also really nice. One negative thing regarding the internet - I wish you didnt have to constantly sign in on the webpage to use it.

Change the wifi so it doesn't make you log back in all the time!
