    One of the best stays I’ve had in a hostel! Amazing and friendly volunteer staff. Common areas are cool to meet people. Rooms are clean and big enough. A little bit far from the city center but the neighborhood is very nice. I would totally recommend!

    This hostel provided a great home base for exploring Belfast and Northern Ireland. Although it is out of the way from the city center, it is easily accessible by bus! The staff were all extremely friendly and created a welcoming atmosphere. While I was staying there, it seemed like almost every other guest was working there semi-long term, so most people already had their friend groups. However, everyone was still nice to me!

    the staff was so friendly and the hostel had a real nice vibe. However the shower was either freezing or burning with low pressure, and there was somehow only 2 showers for the whole place?? also we came home late at night and someone was in my friends bed, so he took another empty one and someone else tried to get in during the night.... very strange and unexplained. apart from that, it was a pleasant experience and we would book again. Enjoyable free breakfast.

    The door to our private room was left open by cleaning staff. Concerning as we assume the room is safe to leave personal belongings in when its private as opposed to a dorm. They did apologize for this and hopefully it won't happen again! The beds were extremely uncomfortable. Otherwise the hostel was decent

    This place was way out of the way, the rooms were ridiculously crammed and the beds were the most uncomfortable I had at any hostel throughout europe. The girl at the front desk was really nice and very helpful, but aside from her, everyone else in the place gave off a super weird vibe, guests included and i really dont know why because its not even the cheapest hostel in belfast. Bathroom had standing water.
