Cheap - but you get what you pay forPosted 1-Sep-2013
Pros: A full breakfast (good) is included at no extra cost. There is a nice communal kitchen (but note no kettles are allowed in the bedrooms).
Cons: Plumbing is very noisy indeed - a prolonged buzzing for 5 mins after every flush! Shower cubicle too narrow. No proper wardrobe, just rail and curtain
Location: It is walkable in 30 minutes from the Europa bus station and only 10 minutes from the Botanic Gardens and award-winning Ulster Museum.
I took a photo of myself in the room... and it looks like I'm in a prison cell, but the difference is you are free to come and go and if you don't plan on spending much time in the room why pay more? Breeze block walls won't be to everyone's taste but though spartan, the room is warm, clean and secure (accessed by no fewer than three card-swipe doors). I recommend a visit to Belfast's newest tourist attraction (as of November 2012) Crumlin Road Gaol because not only is it the best visit in town (it knocks the Titanic Centre for six) but the cells are also an interesting comparison with this university hall of residence! The hall comprises a cluster of 'village streets' - I was in Ash Road...or was it D Wing?

Good for those on a budgetPosted 18-Aug-2013 on Hotels.com
I stayed for 3 nights in Elms Village and for the cost it was good value for money. As others have noted the room itself is very basic but I just needed a place to sleep so it wasn't a problem. There is a separate common area (on each floor I believe) with a kitchen and television so there is somewhere to hang out if needed, also the sockets are more accessible in the common area compared to the bedrooms (the sockets in my room were more or less level with the desk) so if you have an odd shaped charger, such as the one for my MP3 player, you can recharge the device there. The accommodation is close enough to the city centre; I walked there and back each day but there is, what appeared from the real time information at the stops at least, a reasonably frequent bus service to/from the city centre which stops close the main gate. The only real complaint I would have about the accommodation is the noise which has been pointed out by other reviewers - this was not limited to students either, other more 'mature' guests were also at it, noise seemed to travel easily so the loud conversations these other people were engaging in were very audible in my room - the doors do slam quite loudly also, so if you are a light sleeper (which I am not) you may want to bring earplugs. Overall it's a good place to stay if your budget is limited, I would stay there again if I need a place to sleep in Belfast if I am on a limited budget again.

Excellent place to stay, cheap, clean, great food.Posted 28-Jul-2013
Pros: Each floor in the apartments has a kitchen. I was able to buy my evening meal, and microwave it on return. This was a great saving.
Cons: No kettle in room. I love my tea, so each time I wanted tea, I had to get dressed to go to the kitchen.
Location: Set within Belfast city, easy walking access to tourist sites.
Great place to stay. Room was excellent, with a desk and many electrical sockets, which allowed me to charge my laptop, mobile phone etc, easily. The shower was very very small. Just enough space for an average size person to manoeuvre. On arrival back to my room on the first day, my bed had been made, and towels changed. This did not happen on my second stay, which was disappointing. Breakfast was excellent, hot and more than enough to eat. Reception staff were very very pleasant, helpful and friendly. Kitchen and cleaning staff were friendly. Heaps of parking free space, easy access using a sat nav.

Very friendly staff although the building and rooms were too hot and there wasn't a way to lower the temperature!
