Liked: Really cool atmosphere, perfect if you are in Belfast for a party weekend, good breakfast included, free WiFi, nice staff

Disliked: We were NOT in Belfast for a party weekend, therefore it was way too noisy for us. We had the double room pretty much in the staircase and heard all people ringing the door bell, waling up and down and pre-partying downstairs.
