Thank you very much for your very positive review, and your comments about our location/area - we are just a short walk from both City Hall and Queen's University so right in the middle of things! It's good to know that, after your first visit, you are already planning a return. Don't forget that Northern Ireland has a small network...

Thank you very much: I am very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us at the Youth Hostel in Belfast and gave us 5*s! We currently only offer free WiFi in our public areas I am afraid: our building has 5 floors, and beds for almost 200 guests in 50+ bedrooms, and it is not within our budget (as we...

Facilities were available just outside the rooms. Rooms were good. Restaurant was good with nice options. Lift were good. Staff at the receptions were great help. They provided the details required for keeping the luggage before 2pm and also guided on the tours and nearest hop-on hop-off bus stops.

If you book a standard room you'll find showers and toilets just outside your room or across the corridor - but we also have dorms, twins and doubles with private facilities at just a slightly higher...
