It is a nice hostel to stay the weekend. The location is ok, half an hour walk from the centre, but located in the University quarter, with lot of internationals around. Also very nice places to eat and have a drink are at 10 minutes walk. They should try to keep the common areas cleaner (the bathroom hygiene level was... More

Stayed here for one night in December for a gig at the Odyssey Arena. Stayed in a 4 person private room. Staff are very friendly, and the room was spacious and clean (had lockers too but they weren't needed), although there we only 2 plug sockets for 4 people. There was a toilet/shower just across from our room which was... More

I thought this place was great. Well priced and very friendly staff including Linda on reception and also Jo, who makes a very good (free!) cooked breakfast. I never leave reviews, even when I plan to, but this place was so good, I'd feel guilty not to. I've stayed in pricey hotels in Belfast that could probably learn a thing... More

The other people staying in the hostel were so nice as well and we all enjoyed a couple nights out together. Great place to stay, have a delicious free breakfast and... More

Before arriving at Lagan's we thought it very weird. The street in which it is located is basically all to let. There is no single building without a signal on it. Even thought it was summer, there was no one around to be seen, except some immigrant children. When we entered the building, the receptionist (Spanish girl who does not... More

The hostel is not far of the centre and easy to get by bus and car. The staff are very nice and helping people. Very good english breakfast. 14 pound a night. So it's a good place to stay. See you next time

Rooms - I stayed in an 8 bed room. The beds were comfortable the lockers were great and the bedding was fresh, clean and comfortable. The room had some natural lighting which was nice. The only down side was there were only 4 power outlets in the room and with people using power adaptors this made it really only 2,... More

Only stayed for one night however, there was an excellent atmosphere. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Dinner was charged at. £2.50. Not the most hygienic of places especially in the bathrooms but, at £17.50 for the whole stay it is worth a visit

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Included is a FREE English Breakfast that includes Bacon, Sausage, egg, beans and toast. Or Porridge or scrambled eggs and bacon. Please note breakfast is strictly between 8 and 10 with no exceptions. All breakfast served only with coffee or tea. Lagan Backpackers is simply a large Belfast house that has been converted into a Backpackers Hostel; and it is owned and run by a South African guy who knows what backpackers want. Our high ratings are mostly due to the great attention and recommendations that you can expect from both myself and my staff. My idea for a great hostel is very simple: to make you feel at home. To give you a comfortable bed to sleep in, to keep the noise down after eleven to ensure a peaceful sleep and to make you feel so at home that you make new friends and enjoy Belfast as much as possible. We provide advice on all tours of Northern Ireland, and will only recommend tours that we have personally experienced. We advise that our customers do not pre-book tours before visiting as we find that some tour operators overcharge and do not provide the level of customer satisfaction that we expect for our guests. In addition to this, Lagan Backpackers hostel is very friendly to single travellers, as we go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay. We are located minutes from the City Centre, the Lagan River and the picturesque Queens University campus; and mere moments away from the lively Botanic Avenue where there are many restaurants, shops, pubs and clubs for our customers to enjoy. Additionally, the Botanical Gardens that boast beautiful greenhouses and the famed Tropical Ravine is a short walk away, adjacent to the Ulster Museum. Our staff are friendly and eager to help with any enquiries our customers have about which places to visit in the area, the history of Belfast, or even just the best pub to enjoy a pint of Guinness. We are on hand to provide personal recommendations for popular tourist attractions and tours of Northern Ireland, and are more than happy to organise and book these tours for our guests. Lagan Backpackers has a very comfortable, relaxed atmosphere; as our main aim is to ensure our guests feel very much at home. We have full kitchen facilities and a cosy common area where people can eat, relax in front of the television or chat and make new friends. Free tea and coffee for our guests throughout the day. There are also laundry services available for a small fee. Wireless internet access available for a small fee. We look forward to having you stay with us at Lagan Backpackers, where we will make your experience of Belfast a truly memorable one. Bookings for same day as arrival will only be accepted up to 6pm.** Please be advised that although there is no curfew, non-hostel guests are not allowed upstairs. This is non-negotiable, as Lagan Backpackers needs to ensure the complete security and comfort of all of its guests. Reception is open until 11pm, however if you require a later check-in please contact us ** No groups, stag parties, hen parties or drunken weekends like Paddys day!! Please remember only for the 11,12,13,14 July I do not accept booking from people from the UK (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales..also no American or Canadian band members). This is only for the marching season. No refunds on deposits will be given and you will be turned away on arrival. No stag or hen parties or groups without prior permission. ... more   less
