Liked: It's great! The free breakfast is very generous and delicious! Everything is very clean and neat, the staff is very friendly and helpful. Great for the money and a lot better than many of the other hostels in Belfast.

Liked: Love the free hot breakfast and the 3gbp BBQ every night. Willam is a great host. It was a lot of fun.

Disliked: Saying there's free wifi but charging 2gbp a day. Was stuck in the doorway for 15mins before someone answered. "not my shift, not my problem". Sad. The host and most of the employees are cool, except for a few bad apples. Great potential.

Liked: Everything! The host and staff are excellent! Extremely helpful, best tourist and travel tips, assistance with trains, planes, and ferry crossing plans! Breakfast was excellent and a BBQ every night means that this is by far the most affordable place to stay! Facilities are clean and well kept, lots of rooms, lots of space, tons of fun! I will never stay anywhere but here when I go to Belfast!

Disliked: The only thing I can think of is that I had to leave! I wish I could stay!

Liked: Good location with free parking out front which is rare for a big city, the owner was incredibly friendly and helpful, booking tours for us, making recommendations, cooking us dinner. Was a grest place to meet people with a nice common area and nice clearn kitchens. The free breakfast was great.

Disliked: It was very noisy - could hear all conversations from the room and the floors were very loud, could hear people walking around upstairs and at times was so loud it felt as though they were about to come through the ceiling.
