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.

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.
