Had the best time at this hostel, staff were amazingly fun & really nice - very helpful. Pool table and pingpong table in the back, tons of fun - like one big family. Free breakfast in the mornings and a really cool vibe to it. Near by pubs & fun places to go at night, and near enough to walk... More

We stayed there for five nights and had an excellent time. The hostel is only ten minutes from the center by foot, there is a small supermarket really close, some liquors shops and also some restaurants and bars. The hostel itself is clean, has a pool table and a table tennis. There were two guitars at our disposal, so we... More

I stayed at the Vagabonds for 2 nights / 3 days in May 2015. I enjoyed my stay very much. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Price included simple but great breakfast. The kitchen is well equipped, you can cook what you like. The bathrooms are clean. Beds are comfortable. Good wifi in rooms. The only negative was the... More

This is a great place to stay for young people on the road, wanting to meet other travelers. A bit like a social club of a kind. Always someone around up for watching a movie, playing games, having a drink, cooking together. The staff had great suggestions for where to go, how to get around the city. As soon as... More

Anytime spent in the common area, we felt like we were at someone else's party. The people who worked there clearly had personal friends over -- they even had to send a few home in cabs for being too drunk. One girl banged on my shower door for 10 minutes straight because she had to vomit. I got out in... More

Stayed here for a couple nights while traveling around Belfast. The hostel itself has a very casual and friendly atmosphere. It's nicely laid out, and the rooms were decently clean. It definitely has a kind of wild party vibe, which isn't really what I am into. However, If your looking to meet people and have a good time, I feel... More

The sign on the door says "a good clean bed in Belfast." At minimum, this is true--the bed is not private, nor is it particularly spacious, but it is certainly good and it is certainly clean. I found the ambiance to be very friendly and the place laid out in a way that made it easy to meet people and... More

Vagabonds was awesome! I wasn't sure what to expect and it was awesome. The guys showed me around the place and the people in my room were friendly! The staff are awesome. We all went out together on my last night there. This is a really friendly, genuine hostel experience. Great location, rooms were clean. There are cages under the... More

The two quintessential elements of human life are warmth and light, both of which do not exist at the Vagabonds Hostel in Belfast. But if one can push aside for a moment these basic needs, then Vagabonds can still be described only as barely inhabitable. The lodging was comfortable (at a stretch), and the location was close to the city... More
