We booked a double room for 2 nights, the room was lovely and spacious. Staff were really helpful and organised tours for us. It was close enough to everywhere we needed to go. Really nice, young, fun vibe- would definitely stay there again.

I had a good time here, it's a lively hostel with an amazing atmosphere so it's really easy to meet people if you feel like it. The staff is friendly, welcoming and helpful, the room I stayed in was clean, the bathrooms however... not so clean! Another downside was that there were people sleeping in the living/common room area surrounded... More

Great atmosphere, incredible staff. Met so many wonderful people here! Maybe not suitable for a quiet getaway, but if it's memories and great stories you're after it's definitely the place to be. 100% recommended.

We stayed here for three nights and would have liked it to be closer to the City Centre, as it was quite a long walk. The room was clean and tidy, the interior design cozy and interesting. There weren't enough bathrooms, however. The common room was great for socializing and watching tv and the staff was very welcoming.

I won't lie, the beds aren't the most comfortable and the kitchen is a little small, but this place has SO much heart and the staff there are just excellent. From the moment you step in until the moment you leave, you feel like a guest in someone's house or as if you were staying with friends. They are exceedingly... More

Vagabonds is a nice little hostel, located not so far from Belfast's city center. The atmosphere there was great from the beginning 'till the end. The place was globally clean, especially the bed, but the rest of the room could have been a bit more tidy. Overall it was ok. There's also a little parking reserved for the hostel's customers,...

I stayed at this hostel for two nights. Staff are really nice, they welcome travellers well. On the second night, it was noisy even after 11:30 but one of the staff was coming to me to check if I was okay with it. If you want early checkout, they will return your ID the night before when you tell them.... More

We experienced Vagabonds as a very nice hostel (especially compared to other hostels). The rooms had a high standard and were clean. Breakfast is included in the price. Centrally located, perfect for exploring Belfast.

I stayed overnight from the 7th to the 8th of May 2015. I was going to a conference at Ulster University (Belfast campus) and booked a bed here. I wasn't looking for much but the staff was very welcoming and made you feel super comfortable. I ended up going on a black cab tour with three other guests, which I... More

I stayed in this Hostel for three nights in the winter. Nice place for young solo traveller if you want to make friends, hangout, and play board games every night. I stayed in six bed female room. The room is cold for guests to stay in winter. I love the atmosphere and decoration of hostel. There are two shared shower... More
