Really enjoyed my stay in this hostel in Belfast. The guys who worked in the reception were helpful and the walking tour they arranged was very interesting. Before arriving I was a bit concerned since we were going to stay in a 23-dorm room, but it turned out quite alright actually. The Causeway Cafe was probably the best part of...

Stayed here for a trampolining tour, what a great place! Location fantastic for nights out and seeing the city, rooms very clean and a wonderful cafe doing brilliant food at very cheap prices. The staff were absolutely fantastic and couldn't have been more helpful, special mention to Phil who went above and beyond. Would fully recommend!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a one night stay. Good value for money, staff are very welcoming, friendly and accommodating. Very central to everything. Double bedroom was great, plenty of room, very clean, bathroom spotless and hot water for a shower. Definitely recommend, and I will be booking again

Accommodation was better than expected, basic and clean. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgable. Bought breakfast at the cafe during our stay, excellent value and friendly staff. There was a mix of families, couples, singles & friends which made for a informal friendly atmosphere. Hostel in easy walking distance of town centre and bus station.

This hostel was topnotch. It was clean and quiet (with the window closed) and even though we'd originally booked a full room, my friend and I wound up being the only ones sleeping there. I'm staying again in April before an early flight to Glasgow and I can't wait.

The hostel reception was quite good, and the staff really nice, but the bedroom had a really bad smell, too few showers, and those were terrible, the locker in the bedroom didn't 'lock' anything, and despite the warning, the whole floor smelled cigarettes.

Very clean, quiet and great friendly staff. Free parking was a bonus too as Belfast can be a nightmare for parking. Causeway cafe had some of the best food I've ever tasted at a great price too. Given the fact it's a hostel I would rate this higher than some hotels I've stayed in

We only spent two nights in a twin dorm at this hostel, and it was definitely good value. As soon as we arrived, the friendly man on reception helped us book a taxi tour for that day, and genuinely could not help us enough. The reception part of the hostel is clean and modern, and the café that belongs to...

This hostel is shabby, The taps in the bathroom had to be held down to run. They made a loud banging noise like they were about to break every time the water stopped running. The member of staff who checked us in was unhelpful and unfriendly. Bring your own soap as this is not provided. I was disappointed as I...
