Welcome to Belfast’s Botanical backpackers!
We are a friendly little backpacker hostel in leafy South Belfast,
a 1-minute stroll from the City’s Botanical Gardens, and an easy 10-15 minute walk from the City Hall.
Lovely, homey little hostel right in the middle of it all. The beds were comfy, the guest-to-bathroom ratio is good, and the staff are friendly, approachable, and responsive. The vibe is really social, too, it was easy to get to know people in the common spaces. One of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. I would definitely stay here again if I came back to Belfast.
I had a great time at the hostel! I arrived late and accidentally booked the wrong night, but they were so understanding and accommodating. The staff included me on a little day trip which was absolutely wonderful. I love when staff interact with guests beyond just handing over the keys! Erika was so friendly!! The room was clean and cozy with lockers and it was a good location as well, with grocery stores around the corner, 15 min walk to city center, and bus stop 1 min away.
I really enjoyed my stay here - the staff are wonderful, super-friendly and helpful with ideas for trips and tours. They gave the place a warm, family atmosphere. The location is great, right beside the beautiful university, lots of shops and bars, and the museum and botanical gardens are 2 minutes walk away. Very clean, some re-decorating just completed. And breakfast too! I would stay here again, loved the atmosphere!
Awesome experience. The place to stay for felling right at home, but still like a special guest. Erika is kind, knowledgeable, and very chill. The hostel is calm and easygoing. It happened to be my birthday while I was staying. Erika made me “American Biscuits” from scratch because she knew I had been craving some. They were so yummy! She also had a cake, party hats, and a streamer. The location is close to everything, yet on a quiet street. She provides breakfast including vegan and gluten free if asked. The lockers are spacious and come with their own key. Just the most accommodating and professional host I’ve stayed with. It is not a party hostel and was predominantly solo women travelers of all ages when I stayed.
