"Relaxed atmosphere, and the staff went out of their way to be friendly, helpful and accommodate my needs. I am 49 so much older than the majority of guests, and have health issues. I was made to feel…"

24 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The guy that runs the hostel is fantastic- gave heaps of information, books tours and cooks you breakfast in the morning. Really nice guy and very helpful.What we didn't like about the hostel was that the bathrooms were pretty filthy and while the bed was clean and relatively comfortable the floor needed a good vacuum. There were no blinds on the so it was incredibly bright from the street lights all night long.

Liked: The staff were very helpful and friendly. It was quite centrally located and with very good transport links. However there was a constant noise problem at the very early hours of the morning and very late at night that was not resolved. Hygiene could also be improved.

Liked: Private room looks like from the Second World War. On the bed was dirty laundry. I took a private room because I had a birthday that day, so I wanted to enjoy it, now regret the money I spent! The kitchen is good, but you have to hurry to breakfast because you can lose it! Two showers are a bit of a hostel! WiFi is a special charge. The staff is the only bright spot.

Rhona Miller

24 September 2009 Rhona would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel was a little shabby around the edges but generally clean and tidy. The breakfast was simple but a perfect start to a days adventuring and the location was brilliant with everything easily walkable. 5 out of 6 beds were very comfortable but one of my friends had a terrible time with hers. The hostel isn't luxurious but the staff are very friendly and helpful and we had a lovely stay in Belfast.

Daniela Kortusova

21 September 2009 Daniela would recommend this property

Liked: Friendly staff - good recommandations what is worth to visit; a quiet place and there is an offer for tour (Giant Causway, Rope bridge, 2 castles and two other attractions) for £20 - it is really cheap. We did this by train and buses over the weekend in late September and the bus and train services are really poor so we spent more money and more time to see only 2 attractions in northern coast and to see Derry!!! Consider their tour!!
