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.

10 April 2012 Cheri would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were very friendly and helpful. Whether it be arranging tours, making suggestions of places to go or having a chat. There was often an evening activity arranged e.g. movie on a large projector screen, bbq etc. The breakfast in the morning had a good selection (full English, vegetarian, scrambled egg and bacon or toast) and was cooked to order.

Disliked: I felt a bit cold - could have done with heating on. The rooms aren't the biggest so once everyone has their luggage in it can be a tight squeeze. The beds were metal framed and could be difficult for people to climb up to the top bunk and a little noisy if they hit off the lockers. They don't look too comfy but I was pleasantly surprised that they were! There is only 1 bathroom per floor so this might be shared between 18 people so there can be bit of a wait for a shower/the toilet in the mornings.

Liked: I liked the friendly people and the frindly environment.

Disliked: The private single bedrooms are extremely expensive for the cheap and poor service they offer. I would have paid the most 25 pounds and still I think it lacks cleaniness. They don't say we need to pay 1 pound for towel (which are not properly cleaned and this is very against basic hygiene). For backpackers though who pay 15 ou 17 pounds to sleep together with other people I think the hostel is quite good. If you want a private single, you should look for Travelodge or Ibis (standard hotels I believe).
