Right away when we checked in our receptionist marked up a map filled with places to go. The staff was great but our favorite was Melissa, She helped us find and bunch of great places to go and even showed us to a pub with some of the best live pub music i've heard. The hostel was in good walking... More

At the beginning everything went smooth and nice - we checked in, the receptionist assisted us on a black cab political tour (which was truly great) and we left luggage in our room. In the evening there was however no place to sit and eat or have a drink. We had extreme bad luck with one of our rommates who... More

I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm for three nights. When I arrived I was very impressed by the extent the staff went to make me comfortable - it was late, I was exhausted and sick and desperate to get to bed. I was checked in quickly, offered washing services and told to make the most of the BBQ... More

Lagan Backpakers... Firstly, I've been in hostels worldwide and I'm generally slow to criticise as they are usually dealing with a lot of people, many of whom who don't clean up after themselves or care for anybody else staying there... Anyway, Lagan Backpackers is well located in Belfast beside Queens and the welcome was quite warm. The room was ok,... More

The hostel is close to the botanical gardens and Ulster museum. The staff is welcoming and accommodating. The breakfast is great! You chose from 5 options, I recommend the English breakfast, and they serve you. The kitchen is small though so it can be hard to get a seat. Coffee and tea is free all day, self serve in the...

By far and away the best hostel Ive stayed in, from a solo travellers point of view. Within two hours of arriving, i was sitting down for a nightly common dinner with fellow guests and staff, and felt right at home. From Steve and Tomaidh?s amazing free pub crawl, to the always friendly smiling faces behind the desk at reception,... More

Lovely staff, great customer service, comfy and clean beds and tasty FREE full english breakfast (you can choose breakfast from menu and they're bringing it to you!). Bathrooms could be cleaner but in the end I'm very happy that I stayed in this hostel. Very highly recommended!

There's a different atmosphere in that Hostel. You feel like you are with friends...First, because the staffs were really friendly and the other costumers were so able to meet new friends and chat all the time. The staffs helped me all the time giving me tips about the city and tours in the countryside. The room was clean and confortable... More

The hostel is a bit tight in the space, the rooms are small but neat. Toilets a bit less, but still, there was all we needed, and there were plenty of them. We had breakfast that was plain and simple but given the price, is fine. I'm sure there are better places but this one is ok, too. The staff... More
