Liked: see 'dislikes'

Disliked: this hostel made me an my partner feel like we were being punished (nd im not sure what for) , the property is cramped and very unclean. the staff are incredibly unhelpful and seem to know nothing about Belfast (or the hostel)the kitchen was left filthy every night and the walls were damp and mouldy, the shower was so bad we decided to STOP showing in order to be cleaner, the toilets did not flush without five minutes of encouragement and our walls had nose snoot on the wall, I love backpackers and have travelled the world, this place is the actual worst.

Liked: The location is good and staff so much friendly and kind. It's a good hostel for a couple nights. The facilities are good enough but nothing impressive. It's aparently safe in a tranquil neighborhood. The price is very good. At the end, it was just one night but i can recommend the hostel to everybody

Disliked: There is no locker in the bedroom.

Liked: Hostel charming and not far from the city centre where there are loads of things to do. Good basic accommodation and the place was clean enough. Arnie and the other folks working there were very friendly and helpful. Our 4 / 5 bunk room was comfortable enough for us – and it did have a socket in it. The website described things pretty well: even the two dogs were great little characters, both of them polite and charming! My son and I even had the welcoming cup of tea and roaring open fire to greet us!

Disliked: Some might find the hostel a bit cramped – you can see it is cosy in the photos – but for us not a problem as we just needed somewhere friendly, clean and tidy to sleep and eat, near the city centre, so it was just fine.
