Welcome to the friendliest and cosiest little hostel in Belfast, we really look forward to having you stay!
We are a safe, clean, 18 bed hostel in the beautiful Queen's Quarter of Belfast, right beside the Botanical Gardens.
We have free WIFI and a free hostel breakfast (see photos) with vegan and gluten-free options,
so everyone can enjoy a healthy start to the day before heading out to explore our wonderful city!
We have a fantastic and well-equipped kitchen, a cosy living room, and a small garden for guests to enjoy.
Feel free to enjoy our guitars, record player, board games, and book collection!
We truly hope you'll feel at home here, and we just love sharing our suggestions of our favourite hidden gems in Belfast for you to visit!
Botanical Backpackers is the ideal base from which to explore the city and surrounding countryside, and all Belfast's culture and events.
We are very happy to organise tours of the city and Causeway coast from the hostel for you, and help plan the rest of your trip around Ireland,
or just listen and nod, and help work out solutions, while you cry about Ireland's strange and confusing public transport systems. :)
**Please note that check-in is from 2pm in the afternoon until 9pm in the evening, must have valid photo ID upon arrival**
We do not accept stag/hen parties or heavy drinking groups. Quiet after 9pm (chatting is fine, just no crashing around like a baby elephant!).
Situated in the beautiful Queens University area, 1 minute from the Botanical Gardens and Ulster Museum (both free to visit!),
and the University Lanyon Building.
Only 10-15 min walk from the City Hall and a 5-10 min walk to bus/train stations.
