A very clean and friendly hostel, with good facilities. Wifi speed in rooms was slow and outside traffic noise could be heard throughout the night. Generally this hostel was great quality for the price.

Ah, I can't say enough good things about this hostel! The facility was great and clean, the staff (especially David and Paul) were incredibly nice and helpful and the location was easy to get to and from. We were able to book a tour to the Giant's Causeway from the lobby and it was so easy. Will definitely be back!

My 5 nights in Belfast YHA was warm, clean and felt safe. Close walk to city. 10 minutes and I was at city hall. Great cafes, bars and restaurants surround the YHA. At £30 for my own room per night was unbelievable value considering ibis was asking £150 per night! No usual hostel noise or yahooing. Did notice some staff...

The location for the hostel was great, getting to town was a short taxi ride away costing around £5 in an uber and not much more to get to the clubs I wanted to go to. The room itself was clean and tidy on arrival, even for a hostel the double room was like a budget hotel, although without tea...

This hostel was clean and the beds were comfortable (staying in a double room). The only issue was the noise. One night a school group was there and staying on the floor above ours. I had to go up and knock on their door because they were having a dance party and jumping around with loud music. Then I had...

I had a really good stay at the Belfast International Youth Hostel. Well located, a living area close to the city centre, very clean and quiet. The only "problem" was the lack of sockets in the room (they would be better near the beds).

I thought I knew Belfast quite well. I was born and brought up in Northern Ireland, and had been noticing how much brighter and more vibrant the capital was looking over the past decade. However, it was only when I stayed at HINI's Belfast Youth Hostel just before Christmas that I really understood what a gem of a city Belfast...

Good points: The hostel location is great, it's close to the city center. The staff was nice. Bad points: The soundproofing is awful, you can hear absolutely everything that happens in the street and there's a pub near it so people are partying all night long. The Wi-Fi is only available in common space and it was really slow.
