Jacob VAN DEN BERG thinks…

"Perfect for backpackers, meeting other travellersis easy, with activities like pubcrawl and comunal dinner. In a quiet side street near bars restaurants and student facilities. Good public transport."

Liked: Excellent hostel. Great friendly staff including the manager who went out of his way to make sure guests enjoyed their stay. Great free breakfast, and most nights can buy a home made dinner for around 2 pounds. Comfy common room, with large projector if you want to watch a movie. Would highly reccommend this hostel.

Disliked: Wifi didn't work very well, this will hopefully be fixed soon though.

Liked: It was clean. Good choice in breakfasts. Bedroom had good heating (Bathrooms and downstairs did not)

Disliked: This hotel seriously needs to get some soundproofing work done on the walls. I hardly slept during my stay and the 6 bed room was poky with not enough room for all of us to even open a suitcase in peace. And the tiny 6 bed dorm room means that if you have even one snorer in the room it will sound like they are right next to you. The other thing I can mention is that the sitting room could be made more cosier and warmer. The only warm room during my stay was the bedroom, which was a good point. See above. For 9.99 a night I'd rather stay in one of the cheaper hostels. it wasn't value for money.

Liked: Staff were very friendly and helpful. It's great that it includes breakfast - not the best english breakfast in the world, but good considering what you're paying for. Nice decorations in the common areas.

Disliked: Building is a bit degraded, especially rooms. Not surprising considering most hostels I've seen, but some small renovations would definitely increase the value of the hostel substantially. No hot showers in the morning... not sure if this always happens, or if I was just unlucky. Neighborhood is quiet, but can be a bit dangerous when walking from city

Disliked: Facilities are very average security isn't awesome - never been a fan of punch code lock, staff, while friendly, are next to useless when it comes to knowing about most tours around Belfast.

Liked: Very friendly staff, good location, other occupants of dorm were quiet and respectful even on a Saturday night, there was a pretty decent freshly-cooked breakfast in the morning

Disliked: I am pretty sure there were either fleas or bed bugs as I got loads of bites overnight and the next day, and it was too cold for mosquitos. The beds were quite old and very squeaky so it was quite loud every time anyone turned over in the night!
