      Located in a great spot and about a 10 - 15 min walk from Belfast City Centre. There are loads of restaurants and pubs around here. There is a fantasic cafe next door which has a very yummy breakfast for great prices. There is a library, TV room. The rooms were alright. It was a bit noisy on the road side at night, just to be aware.

      A Good, Clean, Place to Stay

      The Belfast International Youth Hostel is a very nice place. Very affordable for a nice, clean bed. It is a short walk from the city center, located in a very pro-British part of town. I stayed in a 6 person male dorm and it was much nicer than my previous hostel experiences in other cities. The bathrooms were clean and private and there were many scattered around the floor as opposed to one big general bathroom for the floor. Ditto for the showers. It had a very spacious and comfortable lounge room downstairs that was connected to a cafe that was affordable to get breakfast at. The staff was very friendly. Overall I was very satisfied, the only thing holding it back from 5 stars is the wifi. It only works on the ground floor which is a minor inconvenience but it barely even worked there. It took me forever to connect and it wasn't just my device, I helped two other girls connect when they couldn't figure it out on their phones. That is just a minor complaint though. I would definitely recommend this place to other travelers looking for a few nights in Belfast.

      So far the hostel seems nice. A little dirty, and stupid sinks. But our roomies are cool!

      It was a very quick flight from Glasgow to Belfast, so we were quickly out of the airport, checked into our hostel and out exploring the city as we didnt have too much time booked in Northern Ireland. Our first stop was to Belfast Castle. We found out from the hostel how to reach the castle by public transport which was definitely the best and …

      I caught the bus from Cork up to Dublin Airport, then up to Belfast on Thursday. A lot of locals commented on how long of a journey it was, but I just laughed because it is really quite a short journey in Australian standards. Driving between Ireland and Northern Ireland was pretty low key, I didn't even know we had crossed the border until the …

      After waving goodbye to my Viv and Mary in Dublin and taking the 2 hour train up north I arrived in Belfast last night, feeling much better and looking forward to spending two days exploring.

      I'm staying in a Youth Hostel that is 15 mins walk away from the city centre, but there is loads of nightlife and history around it. It's near the …

      What an amazing experience I had in Belfast. Travel here is so easy, the bus was cheap and easy to get from Dublin to Belfast. First and foremost it was relaxing to be on the bus. I had walked everywhere in Dublin and had been within the city for two months so it was nice to sit and relax and take photos of the mountainous Irish countryside. When I …

      So in order to make the most of our trip to Belfast for Kristy's birthday, we caught the 8.30am flight direct to Belfast- this meant getting out of bed at 4.30am.. way way too early for some of us! Katie and I took the over-ground train from Clapham Junction to Gatwick airport where we met up with Kristy and Suzie. I gave Kristy a big birthday hug …
