Paddy's Backpackers is the largest and newest independent hostel in Belfast. In the past it was a linen factory, and is now beautifully restored, keeping its original character and ambience. Its style resembles a New York brownstone building, as a contented guest remarked. NOTE: ALL PRICES QUOTED ARE POUNDS STERLING NOT PUNTS. Situated in the cathedral quarter, right in the heart of Belfast's city, close to St. Anne's Cathedral, Northern Ireland Tourist Board, the main shopping areas are around Royal Avenue / Donegall Place / City Hall. Easy to reach from harbour, bus and railway stations. Paddy's hostel is a home from home with a friendly atmosphere where you can meet lots of interesting travellers from all over the world. Paddy,Rosa, Leonard and the helpful staff give you a very warm welcome!
