Anthony, Oct 2018

Pros. Wow! What a great time in Belfast thanks to these guys! The staff is so friendly and welcoming. They had me feeling like family by the time I left. The facilities are clean and simple. The location is very convenient and with such an inexpensive price!

Cons. There weren't power outlets by the beds, but instead a power's trip that everyone had to share.
