Unfortunately we were only staying in Belfast for one night so only got to experience one night at the hostel. Would have been great to be able to spend more time to really enjoy it ands relax / party with the other hostel guests. Stayed in a private double room, very comfortable. Only downfall is that it is a bit... More

This was the first hostel experience I've ever had and i was pleasantly surprised! I would recommend this hostel to everyone. The people there are incredibly welcoming inviting you to outings and activities. There's also free breakfast in the morning, plenty of space to hang out and comfy beds with storage baskets and clean bedding. They have quiet hours so... More

The hostel online seems like a cool, hip little spot to land for a few days and at first glance it was.... Until we realized more than half of the inhabitants were either staff or friends of the staff of which were recovering from a hangover after drinking all night in the common area. If you value good conversation, the... More

I was traveling with my friend in North Ireland and this hostel was very nice and it had all what we needed. The first night we stayed in a 12 bed dorm and it was ok. The people there behaved well and we slept well. The second night was in a 6 bed female dorm and it was perfection. Check-out... More

My friend recommended this hostel (normally I don't trust her) but I went ahead and surprisingly she was correct - the hostel is located pretty close to the botanical gardens and museum (both free) and also close to city centre area. It's a student area so plenty of cheap eats and bars to go to - filthy mcnasty was interesting.... More

A spiritual experience unlike any other. This kaleidoscopic rag tag of colourful individuals know how to have a ripper time. Not having done any research on Belfast, I wasn't sure what destinations/attractions were on offer; didn't need to worry, this hostel IS the major attraction.

A friend and I stayed here while travelling through Ireland and I can honestly say this is the best place we've stayed on our three month holiday. The staff here are incredible and so welcoming to everyone who walks though the door. As soon as we arrived they were accommodating, they even let me catch up on Game of Thrones... More

Located closer to the south side of Belfast, vagabonds has a great staff that like to have fun. They organized about 20 of the residents to go to a local pub that plays trad music. It's surprising to see so many people that don't each other have so much fun together. The staff helps you figure out what to do... More

I've been using hostels in my travels for ten years now and I can easily say that this is the best hostel I've ever been. The room was spacious, bright and warm, and it had 2 showers and two toilets. The bathroom were hotel standard and perfectly clean. I spent two nights here and every day the room and the... More
