We had a great experience at Vagabonds. We were a group of 5 and had a 6 bed dorm to ourselves. The staff were very friendly and obliging. Our rooms were spotless and the communal eating area and bathrooms were regularly cleaned. The location is very convenient to the city centre and Queen's University. There are a number of wireless...

Had an enjoyable stay at Vagabonds. The living rooms and general relaxing vibe is nice to come back to after a day of exploring. It is nice to have free breakfast and readily available staff members to help out. There are some lockers available and rooms and showers are fine. Few good pubs nearby and located in a nice area...

This hostel is young, friendly and trendy. If you are in that bracket it's for you. I booked in but soon realised that I needed at my age (49), a little more privacy and quiet. I also need to sleep on a more comfortable bed. I changed to the Hostelling Association Hostel down the road. The people at the desk... More

I stayed in a 6 bed dorm. The bed was comfy and clean, and the individual bathrooms have been recently renovated to hotel-level quality. There are two big common rooms, one of which with large dining table. The kitchen is a little cramped but more than enough space for several people to use at once. There's also a nice big... More

Let me preface this review by saying although I have stayed at quite a few hostels, I am not the hostel demographic. I enjoy hostels mostly because they offer affordable accommodation in good locations - not as much for the partying and social aspect, therefore my review is somewhat bias... At first I was definitely impressed by this hostel -... More

I stayed in a 14 bed dorm which usually would be terrible, but my stay at Vagabond was actually quite pleasant. The rooms and bed were clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, and there was a free breakfast in the morning which made my good stay even better. I would definitely recommend Vagabonds to any backpacker visiting Belfast.

I arrived at this hostel towards the end of a long trip, and it was everything I could have wanted in a hostel. Upon arrival we were met by a friendly staff member (Sean) who gave us a guided tour of the hostel, explaining how breakfast, wifi, tours etc worked. He then proceeded to point out on the map all...

Couldn't fault it at all, i would recommend going private as its not much more expensive. The staff are great, very accomodating, they offered to cook dinner for us one evening and all. Location is grand, on a quiet road but only about a 10-15 min walk into the city so you're never far away from everything!

While this hostel is a little small (the 14 bed dorm was pretty cramped), it was wonderful! The people who work there are so friendly and it has a house-type vibe. There are living room spaces and a kitchen space and everyone sits around, it's a great way to meet other travelers and to learn about the local area. We... More
