03 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: breakfast was good, also the guys in charge is very friendly and helful. Very nice experience at this hostel, value for money and definitivelly recommend it. The only downhill would be the room: It was very (VERY) cold even though the heater was on. I guess it`s because it was facing the street, but it could be solved by installing double glass window or a system to keep the heat inside the room.

Liked: One of the best hostel's I have ever stayed in. William, the owner, really loves Belfast, and really knows his town, and on top of that is a really cool guy. No matter what you want to do, he will set you on the right track. The property itself is nothing special, but its clean, well kept and secure. The staff is what makes this place recommendable.
