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.

Liked: The people we met there were genuine, friendly and helpful. The guy from Northern Ireland and the two New Zealand guys deserve mention for their easygoing and super friendly approach to the people staying there. It was about a 10 minute walk from the centre of Belfast.

Disliked: There was a bit of a line for showers/bathrooms in the morning but nothing major.
