Property Description

Belfast International is a HI - YHA Hostel: but you don't need a membership card to stay.

THE IMPORTANT STUFF:
As a big, city centre hostel our booking and check in policies are quite strict and in place in order to keep hostellers, hostel and staff safe.
ID POLICY: We take a photographic ID or HI membership card from everyone as a key/security deposit: IDs are held at reception until check out. We don't ask for passports (unless you want to leave them for safekeeping). Please note that this is one ID per guest, not per booking.

GROUPS: Online bookings are limited to 6 people: this includes bookings made under different names or on different websites. Please contact us directly to book for more than 6 people, otherwise check in will be refused.

MAXIMUM STAY: 7 nights.

CHECK IN starts 13.30: CHECK OUT before 11.00: Check in to shared dorms closes at 23.00

UNDER 18s: must be accompanied by their legal guardian: parent, teacher etc
FAMILIES: please book a bed for all children aged 4 and over travelling with you. Children under 4 stay free if they share a bed in the room booked. Under 16s are not permitted to share dormitory rooms with strangers, so please book a private room (all of the beds in a 4 or 6): contact us after booking to let us know you are travelling as a family so that all of your beds are allocated together.
16 and 17 year olds can only share a dorm when accompanied in the same dorm by a parent or legal guardian.

BREAKFAST is not included, but may be purchased at Causeway Cafe on the ground floor after 8am.
WiFi is free and now available, with limited access (basic browsing and emailing), throughout the hostel: WiFi is not available upstairs after 23.00.

PAYMENT: payment in full is required on arrival in cash (GBP) or by credit/debit card. We are not able to process refunds. No shows are charged for the first night of a stay less the corresponding deposit amount for one night. A late cancellation charge is applied to all bookings where a full day's notice of a cancellation is not given: so if checking in on 10th the cut off point to cancel without a fee is 23.59 on 8th: the late cancellation fee is also the amount for the first night less the corresponding deposit for one night
UPDATE: If you make a booking and fail to appear at the hostel without cancelling (i.e. you are a “no show”) three times in a 24 month period then HINI reserves the right to decline all future bookings/stays from you regardless of whether we have been able to successfully charge your debit/credit card or not. The same applies to those making, and cancelling, multiple reservations.

CAR PARK: we have limited spaces: guests park on a first come first park basis and space cannot be guaranteed.

Hostels come in all shapes and sizes: we are not a 'party hostel': our hostel quiet time is 23.00 to 7.00: food and alcohol are restricted to the kitchen/dining room area on the ground floor (this area closes at midnight). We are unable to accommodate stags, hens, teams (apart from school and junior teams) so that we can provide a quiet, comfortable and relaxing place to stay.

Only registered guests have access to the hostel.
Hostel management always reserves the right to refuse check in.
If you have any additional needs please contact us and we will do our very best to accomodate them: however as facilities and resources are limited this may not always be possible.

LOCATION:
Just off Shaftesbury Square (bus route 8 or 9) in the city centre.
We are located between City Hall and Queens University, a short walk from both.
We are the closest hostel to the Europa Bus Station and just around the corner from Botanic Rail Station, for direct connections to Titanic Quarter.

HOSTEL:
Belfast's biggest, longest established hostel: no gimmicks, just clean, safe accommodation. A perfect base from which to explore the city and its history, ideally located for a walk through the university area, along the river to the ever-changing waterfront and Titanic Quarter, or to the shops in the city centre.
We have rooms to suit all budgets, from a basic cheap dormitory bed to a double with private shower/toilet: the TV is in the TV room and the kettle in the self-catering kitchen though!
We welcome guests of all ages (from 2 to 92!!!) from all over the world, including solo travellers, couples, groups of friends, families with children and groups.
Our self-catering kitchen is fully equipped and open from 6.00 to 11.00 and 12.30 to midnight.
There is a plentiful supply of hot water during the day, and our central heating is on from 7.00 to midday and 19.00 to midnight (the building is not heated during the summer months).
We are open and staffed 24 hours a day with no curfew or lockout.
There is a luggage room for storage before check in and after check out: this is also provided free.

ROOMS:
All of our rooms have bunk beds, apart from our en-suite twins and doubles.
Standard twins are small (half the size of a standard 4) and designed for those seeking a budget room but some privacy, rather than extra space or comfort.
The shower rooms in our en-suite rooms are designed as wet rooms, with no shower doors or curtains.
Towels and soap are not provided.
The building is No Smoking in line with the law in Northern Ireland (in house fine: £200): the hostel also reserves the right to charge a fine of up to £200 for extra housekeeping, damage and so on after check out.

CAUSEWAY CAFE:
Open on the ground floor from 8am until 2pm every day, apart from the Christmas period, if you would like to buy breakfast or brunch: freshly 'cooked to order' food. Fruit, biscuits, soft drinks, crisps, chocolate, coffee, speciality teas, hot chocolate, packed lunches, fresh sandwiches, cooked breakfasts, bagels, freshly baked croissant etc

TOURS:
Giants Causeway: There is a tour office at the hostel for booking causeway tours or a freephone to contact them outside office hours www.minicoachni.co.uk
City: We can book your black taxi tour for you at the hostel reception desk. View House Rules

    Superb

    We came to Belfast to see the Foo Fighters and stayed for 3 nights in an en-suite twin room which was very clean and a good size. We had hot water throughout, the staff were all very friendly and helpful, there is 24/7 checkout, the beds were very comfortable plus there is a cab service across the road. Extremely good value for money! Will be staying here again.

    Belfast Youth Hostel has an excellent location walking distance to all major attractions. The place has the look of a typical hostel, with the exception of million dollar views of the city if you can manage to book a bed on the fourth floor. Phil, the guy who checks you in, is incredibly helpful, sweet and willing to answer any questions you may have. People open once they trust you: Ireland and it’s many places, people is beautiful. Thank you!

    We stayed for 3 night and were very happy with it. We spent the first day in the Titanic Quarter and walked there from the hostel (a long meander best suited to decent weather) and the second day we went in the other direction to Queens, the Botanics, Ulster Museum and fantastic Tropical Ravine. The hostel was close to these. The staff were helpful and friendly and the independent cafe on the premises was good. The 3rd floor room was clean and had great views over the city.

    Twin room was small but adequate for the price and bed was comfortable. The only let down was the single glazed windows (noise from traffic/passers-by outside) plus noisy guests/taps/plumbing through the night - just remember to bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper! However, the hostel is an ideal location near to the city centre with helpful, friendly staff:) We had an amazing weekend in Belfast and would definitely return.

    23 ladies in a room is a lot, the bedrooms have large green nightlights that stay on all night so bring a sleeping mask! Beds are extremely firm and the bathrooms get the job done. Harder to meet other travelers and not super social

    Staff are really lovely and are more than happy to help you out, answer questions, give advice, etc. probably the most helpful staff I’ve had in any hostel! Beds are comfortable and rooms clean. Does smell and feel a bit like a hospital and the showers seem like they just stay constantly wet but based on the price who cares!

    Very Good

    Very central hostel with kind and helpful staff. Negative sides are, facilities are not modern especially showers and worse than that, they were not very clean. According to me, the worst part is the atmosphere affected by the acceptance of relatively old people. For example, in our room, there was over 50 yo man with 25 yo me and my mate. I think with a bit of modernizing facilities, cleaning, and age limit this hostel might achieve better. Thanks

    Compared to other YHA hostels, Belfast YHA was slightly disappointing in terms of cleanness (we found dirty socks in our locker) and facilities (not working hot water and 2-second self-closing faucets. On the other hand, the Giant Causeway tour you can book at the hostel at a reduced price was excellent and highly recommended. Overall, the hostel was worth the money spent.
