Feel free to help yourself to our FREE tea and coffee all day long, enjoy our FREE WIFI which is available all throughout the building, and our in-house Cinema Room.

We are the perfect place for single travellers as we go the extra mile to ensure that you have a wonderful time in lovely Northern Ireland. We have nightly dinners where you can enjoy a home cooked meal with the other guests and our friendly staff.

With the “friendliest staff in Belfast” we can help you plan your stay, as they have extensive knowledge of the city, such as City Hall, The Wall Murals, Titanic Shipyard, Queen's University, Crown Liquor Saloon, and The Peace Walls. We are also more than happy to give you advice on tours all around Northern Ireland, as we only recommend the ones we have personally done, and we can organize and book these tours for our guests - like to the beautiful Giants Causeway and the famous Black Taxi tours.

We accept payments by cash, credit card, and debit card.
This property may pre-authorise your card prior to arrival. There may be a small charge if payment with credit card.

    This place is awesome! The staff are fun and friendly. Any questions are answered. From talking to other guests, they are really happy too! Close to busses and just a short stroll to loads of local shops and cafes. Staff give excellent recommendations to the best places to party or chill. Relaxed atmosphere and lots of fun! Free cooked breakfast is a perfect bonus

    Good location. 24 hr check in. Clean bathrooms. Thanks Gonzalo for the friendly service (and the french lady that was also at reception - can't recall her name - sorry!) - make sure you ask Gonzalo to help you out with your city day tour planning - he gave me a great map of where to go, etc. Pura vida my friend!

    Got recommended to go to this hostel from friends who have been before about a year and a half ago. What a waste of money! The only good thing was the location. Bathrooms are absolutely disgusting, and you can’t even control the water temperature. staff were rude and sarcastic (except Marcus-thank you for being so nice) there were stains that looked very questioning all over the walls by my bed. No atmosphere and just a strange unwelcome vibe all around. Not well managed.
