Clean, convenient, affordable with campus ambiance
I often stay in university residences when I travel in the summer and Queens University in Belfast offers excellent accommodation of this type. The buildings are new and set in a charming village layout and the security is straightforward. A great advantage is the 24-hour front desk reception, and the gentleman on staff when I arrived (after midnight) was very friendly, helpful, welcoming, and gracious--really outstanding service for such a late arrival. The rooms are standard dorm-style with a single bed and a desk, but the facilities are new and very, very clean, and the ensuite toilet and shower are perfectly adequate. Queens Uni has a lovely campus and it's worth taking a stroll around the buildings and particularly the Botanic Gardens. I would definitely stay again and recommend this accommodation to other single travelers.
