Belfast's only Hostelling International (YHA) Hostel: (but you don't need a membership card to stay!) Important stuff: Please have a read before booking: As a big, city hostel our booking and check in policies are quite strict to keep hostellers, hostel and staff safe: if they seem too strict we may not be the right place for you. We take a photographic ID or HI membership card from everyone as a key/security deposit: IDs are held at reception until check out. We don't ask for passports (unless you want to leave them for safekeeping). Please note that this is one ID per guest, not per booking, so make sure that everyone you have booked for is aware and brings something extra with them. Online bookings are limited to 6 people: this includes bookings made under different names or on different websites. If you book for more than 6 people your booking will be cancelled, or check in refused, with loss of your deposit and a charge of the first night of your stay. Please contact us directly to book if you are travelling with more than 6 people. Maximum stay: 7 nights. Check in starts 13.30: Check out before 11.00 Check in to shared dorms closes at 23.00. Hostels come in all shapes and sizes: we are not a 'party hostel': our hostel quiet time is 23.00 to 7.00: food and alcohol are restricted to the kitchen/dining room area on the ground floor (meaning no takeway food after this area has closed at midnight). We are unable to accommodate stags, hens, teams (apart from school teams) so that we can provide a quiet, comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Under 18s: must be accompanied by their legal guardian: parent, teacher etc Families: book a bed for all children travelling with you. Under 16s are not permitted to share dormitory rooms so please book a private room if travelling with children. Contact us after booking to let us know you are travelling as a family so that all of your beds are allocated in the same room. 16 and 17 year olds can only share a dorm when accompanied in the same dorm by a parent or legal guardian. Breakfast is not included, but may be purchased on the ground floor after 8am. WiFi is free but currently only available in common areas on the ground and first floors.
