19 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This was the best hostel I've stayed in. The showers were hot, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast Will serves in the morning is amazing and included in the price of the room. Will was incredibly helpful and showed us the best places to go and see. He basically planned out our trip for us when we arrived which included all of the things we had wanted to do and see. If you're looking for something to do, take advantage of the Black Taxi tour and the Giant's Causeway tour Will suggests - they're not expensive and they were really informative. Plus we got to see a lot more of Northern Ireland than we anticipated which was great. The location of the hostel is great as well - very close to the university and the bars/clubs. Very welcoming atmosphere. Overall wonderful experience.

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.
