    What a great hostel. Staff are really fun, helpful and friendly but also very professional; the hostel is always clean and there is always someone on hand to help if you need anything. Always a good vibe here, chill out area is great to meet people and have a laugh. The location is excellent for both day time sight seeing and night time partying. Great restaurants and bars within a very short walk. Highly recommended

    I’ve stayed in many hostels and have to say for the UK this is the best one yet in terms of atmosphere and value for money. The hostel is clean (seems to be cleaned everyday) and great amenities. Well stocked kitchen and great common areas. The way the common areas are set up is easy for solo travellers to meet people are bigger groups to socialise. There are two indoor large social areas if you either need a comfortable sofa or table to use your laptop. Highly recommend the hostel!

    The host was very nice, she was friendly and kind , the hostel was very clean and great breakfast was served each morning, the host made sure to change the sheets after each guest and cleaned everything, the hostel was very quiet so it was great to have a good night sleep. I would definitely recommend.

    Absolutely amazing staff. Would return just for the people. This is one of the places where the hostel may be better than the city itself. Highly recommend.

    Fantastic hostel, less of a hotel more of a home. Everything is clean and the staff are former guests turned volunteers. Super friendly staff creates a super fun environment.

    The staff and other guests were friendly and accommodating. By far the best hostel in Belfast. Close to the University but also only a walk from the City Center. Everything is nearby and staff are always only a call away!

    Staff are very friendly and helpful showing you the ropes of the hostel. Hostel is in a good location, basically just walk up the main road to town. The hostel itself is nice, crowded in the room we stayed in but also worth it for the price per bed. communal area is spacious and complimentary breakfast is great. Facilities are clean and staff seem to work hard to keep up standards. Would recommend to any traveller in Belfast who is looking for a “true hostel experience” :)

    Very Good

    The hostel is like in the pictures. The staff was really nice and kind. They offer me to change the room to a more comfortable one. Also they made me recommendations about the city. Really appreciated:). The negative point to highlight is that it wasn't the cleanest hostel I went to . The toilet mostly. And also I don't remember if it is in the description but there isn't a toilet per floor and they are small.
