    I really enjoyed my stay here. It was ideal for my two friends and I who were spending the weekend in Belfast. I would return.

    Please why they don't swap that toaster to a brand new one? It's so sad the scenes of people queueing up in the morning to using a half broken toaster. That hostel is packed most of the times and a brand new toaster costs less than £30.

    Was kind of disappointed with the actions of some staff, came back to find my stuff rearranged and my sandals and socks in the garbage because I left them under a table in my dorm, which I suppose wasn't allowed. Location was good.

    I wouldn’t recommend staying at this hostel. I didn’t have as bad an experience as many other reviewers, but the lock to the room didn’t work, most of the people staying seemed to be older guys, there weren’t outlets by every bed, and the location isn’t great. I’d definitely recommend paying a bit more to stay somewhere else in Belfast.

    Not a bad place, but there was not a lot of space and there was much to be improved in service and amenities.

    The whole place was like a crack house with filthy floors & showers full of guest's hair. I thought my bed was taken because no one changed the bed's sheets. My duvet was chewed up at the bottom with frayed & exposed wool hanging outside the bed sheet. Asked the manager for another, was given the same one back. Mattress' springs poked into your back. Floor boards were damaged & loud. Felt clean when I walked in, filthy when I walked at 5.30am because I couldn't bear to be there anymore.

    Location 20 minutes outside city centre, the dorm had no air flow which made it very warm, the door was loud and squeaky, the floors are loud and the showers didn’t work well (water fluctuated between boiling hot then cold),

    This was without a doubt the worst hostel I’ve ever slept at. The facilities are dirty and overall really bad, there were no curtains so we had the lights from the street directly in the eyes during the night. No bed sheets were given, people who stayed with us were loud and the toasts for breakfast were mouldy !!! I would recommend anyone to pay a little more and to stay at the other Belfast hostels.
