From nearby Botanic Station you can hop a quick train along the scenic route to Titanic Quarter, home of the Titanic Museum and the SS Nomadic, or further out to some of NI’s most picturesque beaches.

Any one of our staff can direct you to all the best views, best restaurants, and of course, best and liveliest PUBS. Stop by reception to book a tour to the Giants Causeway (daily pickup from the hostel!), a Black Taxi Tour or a Game of Thrones special!!

    I stayed for at City backpackers for a couple of days. Really friendly atmosphere, approachable staff and free cups of tea! Also good location and excellent value for money, would go back and visit again. Any issues, just ask at reception and they'll sort you out, great for locals and travellers alike. Thanks for a lovely stay, Deepika

    The staff are wonderful and very helpful! The girl at the desk took time to show me all kinds of stuff I could do around the city!! They will also help you book tours that pick up from the hostel (giants causeway).

    A nice hostel just a little further out of the centre than most with a relaxed vibe. The facilities were nice and the staff were friendly but it didn't have a very communal atmosphere in general. Overall, good value for money!

    Staff were nice but real creepy vibe. Maybe due to the visitors being mainly middle aged men. Breakfast is super basic and I’m gluten free so not ideal. Location is pretty bad because you advertised as city backpackers yet you need a car almost to get into city.
