I’ve stayed at City Backpacker on and off in recent months and will definitely use it again. I was in Belfast for work and this was a perfect location for me and it has double rooms with an ensuite which I wanted and could not find in other hostels. The hostel is exactly as the website says: 2 minutes to...

I've stayed there three times now and each time the service has been amazing, the bed extremely comfortable and the overall experience was class. The staff are extremely friendly and almost feel...

Cannot recommend this place enough! It's fantastic, just a little bit out of the city centre, but there's a bus stop less than 2minutes walk from the front door or the staff are more than happy to call a cab for you.. If you are traveling with friends or have other guests to share with it works out as cheap...

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.
