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

If you are travelling alone (and you don't want to be alone) or with friends under 30 it's the perfect place. It was not my situation. I only expend 2 days in wich the toilets were dirty at all times, but the shower and kitchen were ok. I really enjoy of the 2 living rooms and the ubication was perfect.... More

Our room was a six bed mixed dorm and was comfortable and clean. The location was a nice walk from the city center, and I would highly recommend the black cab tour and the Giants Cosway and Antrim Coast line tour when in Belfast, both easily accessible from the hostel. My only complaint would be regarding the staff at this... More

This place is so lovely! Nice (and cute) staff and facilities. Free breakfast and free basic food, food storage for cooking at night as well. Tips: If your bed is next to the window ( especially room 8, ground floor), make sure you have your earbuds because it's close to the outdoor area where people hang out at night playing... More

Been here with my travel mate for 3 nights. Very clean and tidy bunk beds. Staff are awesome and super friendly, felt like a member of Vagabonds' family. Free breakfast every morning, Free wifi and of course free "Jurassic World" for everyone. I'd highly recommend and visit next time in the future.

When my boyfriend and I walked in, we were greeted by a nice member of staff. I can't recall his name, but he was very very accommodating. The other people in the hostel seemed very friendly. At least, until around 10PM. Once the pub crawls started and/or people started drinking in the hostel it got insane. The noise and ruckus... More
