Provided free ear plugs (absolute saviour from snoring room mates and noisy social butterflies outside on the deck). Free taxi phone by reception desk. Lockers in room (bring own lock... More

This is without a doubt the friendliest hostel I have ever stayed at. Great atmosphere, great location, great staff!! I was traveling alone and when I checked in at the hostel I asked about the black taxi tour. They said it would be cheaper if I went with some other hostel guests and they would be happy to arrange it... More

I had the most amazing time at Vegabonds for St Paddy's weekend. I arrived with my housemates and we were looked after very well from the moment we got there. Vegabonds has a very homely feel and you feel very welcome as soon as you walk in the door. The staff were great, we got a tour of the hostel... More

I honestly can not say enough about this place: friendly, helpful, insightful, kind, funny (if it sounds like I'm describing a lover it's because I'm in love!) They honestly made my experience in Belfast all the amazing things that it was. :) in short- "Stay here if you can!"

This hostel is the best I've stayed in, good value, spotless clean especially the bathrooms, friendly welcome and service. Great atmosphere with fellow travellers and excellent management. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again and is close to all amenities. Great job.

It is very rare I use the term 'Stunning' to describe a Hostel, although Vagabonds is simply that. A well trained team led by consummate professional in Richie, the hostel quite simply sets a gold standard, that puts many other hostels to shame. Simply put - it has restored my faith in lodging once again. I did not have a... More

When we arrived, we were told there was no record of our booking (we booked with hostelbookers.com), we were handed off to about 4 different staff members while they tried to find out what had happened. We had booked a twin room, but this was no longer available so ended up in a 6 bunk dormitory to ourselves for the... More

Book this hostel, you won't regret it! From the minute you walk in the door there is a friendly welcoming vibe in the place. It feels like a true home away from home, complete with great staff who like to make sure that the guests enjoy the amazing city that Belfast is, and won't hesitate to join everyone for a... More
