Hostel was pretty good, but I also stayed at Global Village about 5mins away which I found a lot better - though it costs a little more. In my opinion, the extra cost was worth it. Still, this is a very good hostel too. I stayed in the 14 person room. It was actually pretty okay, maybe a little cramped but not bad.

ONE OF THE BEST EVER HOSTELS! Only a 10 min walk into the city and very close to Queens university. Has a very family based culture and had so much fun here with everyone.Would definitely recommend. All amenities are very convenient and clean, etc! Enjoy your travels and thanks to Richard and the Team for a great stay!!

Staff were great. I had misplaced the key when I was checking out at 04.30 but I left a note including my contact details describing where it should be (still in the bed, too dark and late to go looking for it in a packed dorm), and have heard nothing, so I presume you found it. Sorry about the hassle.

One of the best I've been to. It's a real hostel, not a budget hotel. Facilities are superb. Staff are of the highest calibre. Very social, very fun.

My friend and I both really loved this hostel! Such a great atmosphere, it just felt like a bunch of college students hanging out. I would definitely go back there. It was in kind of an out of the way spot which is why I took off for the location, but we got there easily enough.

Very nice atmosphere in this hostel, everyone around seemed to be friends, so it's probably a great place for backpackers who stay more then just the one day we did. It's well located (about 15 Minutes from central bus station and close enough to the city center). Our room was charming, however the bathrooms could use some renovation. Everything was quiet during the night. Wifi didn't work properly some of the time but was free. Towels could be borrowed for only one Pound each.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Everything is related with traveling and all the staff are interested in help and talk to you. I recommend! =)
