This hostel of in a great location to explore northern Ireland. We found the room to be clean and good value for money. Bathroom is fine as well and the communal area was great for meeting new people. A big thanks to the friendly staff for a brilliant stay in Belfast.

Stayed at this hostel as a city break in Belfast, and have to admit I was surprised by the amazing quality of Lagan backpackers! A lovely cooked breakfast in the morning, a great communal area to meet new people, clean and comfy beds with curtains for some privacy at night! The staff are incredibly friendly and have a massive range... More

The fiancee and I were on a whistle stop tour of belfast from England. The hostels staff were extremely helpful and friendly, they directed us to an excellent provider of the city tours (that was a fair bit cheaper than the rest). They also helped explain to us nice spots outside the city (for example Newcastle and the mountains). The... More

I was really disappointed with this hostel. The sheets were clean, however the rest of the hostel definitely was not. The bathrooms were by far the dirtiest. Someone had also left a 'present' on the bathroom floor, when I told the staff about this they did not seem shocked at all and were in no rush to clean it up.... More

So I bounced around quite a bit in Belfast, and this was hands down my favourite hostel. It might not be the cheapest, or the cleanest (although it's way cheaper and cleaner than plenty I have been to), but honestly, if you're looking to have an awesome time in an awesome city then this is it. I won't go on... More

I don't understand how this hostel has any good reviews! It is the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. The rooms were fine, however the state of the bathrooms was appalling. Mould was growing all over the walls and shower recess. I don't know when the toilet was last cleaned; there were faeces on the underside of the seat. No... More

So this was my first night in Ireland and even in any hostel ever and god was it a great choice. The staff was really friendly and helpfull. I could not have asked for a better first stop. I even ended up staying an extra night I enjoyed myself so much. The rooms were comfortable and the bathroom facilities were... More

A comfortable bed with privacy curtains, a functional kitchen, great free breakfast, cheap tours, great staff, fantastic atmosphere, walking distance to most of the things you really need to see in Belfast. Whether you are in it for the partying and pub crawls or just want to chill out, I definitely recommend this hostel.
