There are definitely positive and negatives to this place. The negatives: housekeeping is not every day or every other day or even every third day for that matter. Continental breakfast on weekends include, toast, croissant, fruit, cereal, and yogurt. Weekdays the breakfast is eggs, bacon, sausage, soda bread, potato, as well as the continental fixins'. Not much around or within... More

Very comfortable room. Ask for lake view room. Enjoyed balcony and staff was friendly and helpful. However, common areas were dirty--had to wipe tables as they were sticky and had gunk on them. They also had ice which I am always looking for and not easily obtained here!

Every time I visit Belfast I stay here. The price, the staff and the value for money mean I wouldn't stay anywhere else. It's not the Hilton but it does offer accommodation at a price that's hard to beat whilst also providing nice clean rooms of a decent standard. They staff could not do anymore to make your stay more... More

Patrice and all on the reception desk are friendly. Rooms are great, all en suite, TV with plenty of channels. There is a kitchen too, about 10 mins walk away a line of fast food places (Chinese, chips) buses run about every 30 mins.

Ruth & the team continue to provide a great hostel. Friendly staff & clean basic rooms. Tea & coffee making in the room & TV. The location has great views over Belfast especially H&W harbour. It's a cross community initiative that deserves support. Still recommended for a short stay...

Positive aspects; for 31 pounds per night you get a nice, spacious room with a comfortable bed, simple but functional furniture, flat screen TV, a bathroom and, depending on where your room is, a good view. The staff is very friendly and helpful, you also get access to a self-cathering kitchen and a laundry room. The nearby Falls Road, Cupar... More

Very clean rooms with ensuite and a bath/shower. I was gigging late and they didn't mind me checking in at 2am. The staff are friendly and very helpful and even though it is a fair wee walk from the city centre it was so nice I will definitely be coming back!

I assisted a study away class to Northern Ireland. Our trip was split between Derry/Londonderry and Belfast. We were in Belfast for about a week and stayed here at the Farset. The rooms were comfortable and well arranged. While small, they didn't feel small. The breakfast buffet filled even me, a person with several food allergies/restrictions. The staff were SO... More
