Property Description

Welcome to the friendliest and cosiest little hostel in Belfast, we really look forward to having you stay!
We are a safe, clean, 18 bed hostel in the beautiful Queen's Quarter of Belfast, right beside the Botanical Gardens.
We have free WIFI and a free hostel breakfast (see photos) with vegan and gluten-free options,
so everyone can enjoy a healthy start to the day before heading out to explore our wonderful city!

We have a fantastic and well-equipped kitchen, a cosy living room, and a small garden for guests to enjoy.
Feel free to enjoy our guitars, record player, board games, and book collection!

We truly hope you'll feel at home here, and we just love sharing our suggestions of our favourite hidden gems in Belfast for you to visit!
Botanical Backpackers is the ideal base from which to explore the city and surrounding countryside, and all Belfast's culture and events.
We are very happy to organise tours of the city and Causeway coast from the hostel for you, and help plan the rest of your trip around Ireland,
or just listen and nod, and help work out solutions, while you cry about Ireland's strange and confusing public transport systems. :)

We do not accept stag/hen parties or heavy drinking groups. Quiet after 9pm (chatting is fine, just no crashing around like a baby elephant!).

    Love this hostel if you are looking to take a break and really get a good rest this is the place. The owner is lovely and gives you a map and guide upon arriving. The place is quiet and quaint. I definitely will stay here again when in Belfast. The showers are good the wifi as well and the guest were all very respectful.

    Amazing hostel. I was convinced to visit Belfast just because of how cute and cosy this hostel seemed, and I'm so glad I did because Botanical Backpackers fully lived up to my expectations and more. I felt right at home. I dropped my bags in the lovely living room (decorated for the holidays!), in a rush, before my check-in time, and when I made it back in the evening I was greeted again by the super friendly and chill staff (who gave out great recommendations all around). I could go on!

    Had a very nice stay at Botanical Backpackers with our family (2 adults and 3 young children). Everything about the hostel was spot on. The location was convenient with a good bus service within 50yards of the hostel and free parking right outside. Erika, was extremely friendly and helping, from confirming our booking, to checking us in and she was very welcoming of our inquisitive kids. Self service breakfast was great. The room was clean and the beds very comfortable. Great stay.Thanks
