I stayed two nights over a weekend in Novembers, and even then it's a busy place. I was able to find places to chill in the hostel and connect to the wifi (which is only available on the ground floor). The room was generally clean, but I'm docking a point for the boxers which remained in the shower even after...

Friendly and helpful staff. Stayed in a 2 bedded room. Beds were convenient. Only problem is the shower in the privat bathroom/toilet. There is no shower curtain. So the chance of getting wet feet being on the toilet after a shower is 100 %. Causeway cafe can be highly recommended. Very tasty and great variety. Was my 4th stay there...

Was a perfect place to stay and everything was within walking distance. Clean, quiet, secure and well worth the price. Definitely going to book again down the line. Be sure to do it in advance, can be in demand!

The hostel is safe and security is very good. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We always have private en suite rooms when we visit. There's a gated car park with cctv. The cafe serves amazing food at a fair price. Not too far to walk into the city for all the great night life Belfast can offer. I've...

For a trip to Belfast from Dublin I saw this hostel advertised on hostelworlds.com. I decided to check into it and I found a private double bed room with en suite bathroom. The room itself was perfect, the bed was comfy and the hostel was so safe. We checked in and received two key cards (like a hotel!!). I was...

Thank you so much Libby556! One of my favourite things is reading a positive review from a first time hosteller! It's great to know that you plan to keep hostelling. Where's your next stop? We replaced the mattresses in our ensuite doubles and twins recently so I am pleased you found the bed comfy. Everyone receives a keycard on check...

My two friends and I stayed in the youth hostel for three nights and had a great time.

I had a single bed in a 22 bed dorm which cost £12 a night. So consequently wouldn't complain about anything. The bed ( top bunk) was comfortable. For two nights I was the only one in the dorm. It did get tricky when the place was full on the last night. Getting up at 4am, packing up and leaving...

Cheap and cheerful sounds good to me! Thank you. Our rates have not changed for some time, it's important for us to remain affordable. Thank you too for your positive comment about our location: convenient for both the city centre and the Botanic area. Our large dorms were well designed - spacious, semi-partitioned to offer some privacy and with private...
