Went for a weekend with a mate. Excellent service, clean rooms, nice showers and also includes breakfast. Located just along from Queens University with lots of pubs in the area. Thought it was great value for money. Well definitely stay here again when back in Belfast.

I have nothing but praise for this fantastic hostel. The two outstanding qualities that makes this Hostel stand out from the rest is its cleanliness and the service from its very helpful owner.

Have stayed twice now and have to say it is a great facility to have so close to the City. The location is great as it is only a 25 minute walk from the City Centre but very close to Botanic and Queen't University where there is always a lot going on. The staff are helpful and welcoming and the...
