It was a very nice and friendly place. The staff were all very warm and welcoming and were very accommodating with our bags at the end of the trip. The whole place is very comfortable and pretty clean, and there were a lot of spaces in the hostel to hang out and chill. They also had guitars in a room which was a great surprise. I really loved staying there and would definitely stay there again!

Exceptionally great hostel :) Lovely, charming, with a lot of personality. Loved the dining area and the breakfast selection, one of the best I've ever had (jams, peanut butter, chocolate spread...) The hostel is centrally located, within walking distance from the bus station (Europa Bus Centre at Glengall Street). Super friendly staff. I forgot my power plug adapter and was able to borrow one at the reception. The only suggestion I'd have would be electricity sockets for each of the beds.

The staff were all extremely friendly, chatted to everyone and were able to help give good advice and information on what to do whilst in Belfast. The location is great and the hostel is excellent value for money.

really lovely and friendly staff, great atmosphere and location, rooms were nice and clean although you could feel the springs strongly in the mattresses, also no area for luggage in the 6 bed female dorm I was in so staff kind of went everywhere

Such a nice hostel - came for a weekend away with friends and booked the double room. Much better than any budget hotel, staff were very firendly and helpful. Rooms were very nice and bed was cozy. Shower was good and powerful, but could be a bit cleaner. The hostel has good character and has a nice friendly vibe. Would go back if i'm back in Belfast. 👍

Loved this hostel! It's a great choice for solo travelers. I arrived early and they welcomed me to breakfast, gave me a map of the city, and suggested places to visit. The dormitory I stayed in was on the ground level so it could get loud but they have free earplugs at reception. This place goes above and beyond. Staff is excellent, common areas make the place feel like home, and the breakfast is fantastic.
