Police attended the premises in south Belfast on Tuesday morning where a suspicious package had been found.
A spokesperson said army bomb experts examined the device and declared it to be a hoax.
Reacting, Sinn Féin MLA Rosie McCorley said the party will not be intimidated from carrying on their work.
"The PSNI have informed us that a hoax device, addressed to a Sinn Féin councillor at Connolly House, was intercepted today at Belfast sorting office," the West Belfast MLA said.
"This one was a hoax but the police warned us to be careful because of the risk of further packages.
"Sinn Féin's elected representatives and party activists will not be intimidated by anyone from doing their work for all their constituents.
"Whoever is responsible for this needs to realise that any attempts at intimidation will just make us more determined to carry on that work."
Elsewhere on Tuesday, a viable letter bomb addressed to NI Secretary of State Theresa Villiers was found at Stormont Castle.
It was the fourth device intercepted by police in the past week - others have been sent to senior PSNI members and the PPS building in Londonderry.
Dissident republicans have been blamed for the attacks.
