“Belfast City Backpacker _ Brilliant!”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

This place was by far the best hostel I have stayed in. I've been travelling for an extensive period of time and have stayed in many good backpackers... but this one took it to another level! It is run by an experienced backpacker and he has thought of EVERYTHING! From kitchen being practically open 24 hours, to having a brand new guitar or brilliant communal/couch area's, he knows what travelers want and he provides! By far the cleanest hostel i've ever been in (it is new) and the most equipped in the kitchen too! To add to this, it is in a brilliant area! We are two students and had a ball, but there was also families staying at the time who equally enjoyed their time. I don't know how he's done it but he has found the perfect balance. A couple of nights we didn't go out on the town, he was up in the communal area, chilling out and chatting with us... it was more like staying at a friend of a friend's house than a hostel! He even offered to drive us over to Derry as he happened to be driving over there when we were, by coincidence. Brilliant place, friendliest of staff... definently would be my first choice if i travel back to Belfast.

Room Tip: They're all brilliant, clean, cosy.

It's nice to stay at a hostel that is run by a true backpacker! The manager John can do enough for you. The hostel is practically new, very clean and great location. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Belfast!

This is an amazing hostel, it's got everything you could want; a good location (a few mins walk from Queens uni and tesco and walkable to central Belfast too) FAB staff- John was amazing, and great facilities- I can't think of anything that's missing. If you stay here you wont be disappointed :)

This hostel is brilliant - comfy beds, decent showers, spacious communal areas and a well equipped kitchen, all kept spotless in a great location at a very reasonable price. However, the one thing that really completed our stay here was John - the nicest host you will ever meet. So friendly and welcoming, he couldn't do enough to help us. Anyone visiting Belfast, you will not find a better hostel, I will definitely be returning here next time I'm in the city!

A group of four of us stayed here for two nights over a weekend recently. The hostel was full to capacity but even then, the owner didn't charge us for a person who had dropped out at the last minute, which was incredibly kind of him. The rooms were absolutely lovely, nice, clean and bright with lots of space and the bed was the most comfortable I've ever had in a hostel. Breakfast was cereal and toast with hot drinks, basic but included in the very reasonable price so we were very happy with it. We didn't eat in the hostel apart from breakfast, but there were great food storage and cooking facilities. Everything was so cleaned and well looked after. The owner was great craic and very friendly. Best hostel I've stayed in, would definitely recommend!

It´s a great hostel, I could actually say that one of the best hostels I´ve ever stayed in. Clean, tidy, very comfortable and located in the heart of the students ´quarter in Belfast. John, the guy in charge, is a very friendly fellow, always willing to help and make you feel home. Highly recommended!!
