This really was the best place to stay in Belfast, off a nice quiet street but right next to the university. Great location all around and only 10 minutes from the centre. The price was good for the value and the staff were extremely friendly! Evenings around the coal fire and free wifi are good enough for me. The beds aren't terribly comfortable, but the place is clean and the water is hot. Kitchen facilities are pretty decent too. I definitely recommend it.
