This was a disgusting place to stay. Mould on bathroom ceiling and in shower and general dirtyness plus limescale, very dusty. Found several boggies on the walls including in the shower. Stains and rips on bedsheets. However there are good communual facilities available and free WiFi.

The place is neatly maintained, people are amicable, warm, welcoming and receptive. Rooms are good, though packed tightly with beds and moving space is very very less. But very cheap and affordable. Includes a decent breakfast. Perfect for short-term stay and travellers travelling alone or with friends. But located a little far away from the City centre and all the...

We stayed in this hostel two nights in a double room. The rooms was clean, the breakfast is plenty, and the location is good to visit the town. Recommended :) I would return if I would be in Belfast again.

In 10 GBP what more I could expect to get in the UK.... I should say nothing more than what I got from City Backpacker..! Rather, I am happy with the staff, their cooperation, bed, quilt and linens, comfort, and most surprisingly the complementary breakfast(!!!) within this very 10 GBPs. I pre-booked the facility through booking.com and it was fine..!...

First of all when we booked we were asked to give card details for a deposit. We called back multiple times as we never received an email confirmation but nothing. When we turned up they had no idea who the person was that had taken the card details and took half an hour to check us in because they were...

This place has a great location in Belfast, just across the road from the beautiful Queens University. For a hostel it's a little on the pricey side but you do actually benefit from a high quality, well designed rooms. The place is clean and a decent free breakfast is provided. The communal areas are lovely, and I bet the little...

This hostel is very chaotic and bad organized. The room they gave to us has the bathroom dirty with the WC clogged. The shower was not cleaned too, there were dirty spots all over and some disgusting mould in the corners of the shower box. There is no one in charge who makes sure that the rules are respected. Despite...

We booked a double room on HostelWorld only to get there and find there is no such thing and got a twin bunk instead! This alone would've been fine but the room was very plain- not even a chair or table in the room so all our stuff had to go on the floor. The room wasn't particularly clean either....
