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

I travelled to Belfast on my own. When I arrived in Vagabonds I felt instantly welcome and part of a community of enthusiastic travellers. It was clean and cool. Free tea and coffee whenever you like. Breakfast included was good quality and substantial. There was really nice jams and peanut butter! Interior is really geared towards traveller-types.

Vagabonds was run well, offers everything you needed in a hostel and a little more. The hostel is near the city centre and a short walk from most places of interest in Belfast. There are kitchen facilities, quiet tv lounge room areas. Outside there is a pool table, ping pong table and general entertainment party area. The bedrooms were a... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights. Neither of us had stayed in a hostel before so we were slightly dubious about what to expect. We weren't disappointed. Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly member of staff and given a brief intro about getting in and out, the facilities, breakfast etc. All fine. We had a... More

Very angry at the treatment from the team at vagabonds. Booked a room for 4 in November 2014 for July 2015 however had a call today saying hostel was closing. Simply not good enough service. 4 months later and your let down, nothing offered to compensate and looking at the prices of hotels in the local vicinity an extra £300... More

I've stayed in a lot of hostels and this was by far the best I've ever been to. It is spotless, the rooms are lovely and spacious. The common area is the best part, there are loads of places to chill and to party. The staff are outstanding. Everyone is there for fun, no one even seems like their working.... More

This summer I did a "back packing" tour across Ireland for the American football game with my friends from PSU. We decided to stay at hostels versus hotel because you really could not beat the price. Vagabonds in Belfast, Northern Ireland, was my favorite one! The staff was friendly and helpful. They offered dinner, if we were interested, along with... More

I stayed here on my first trip to Belfast. The 5,000 staff members they have working there are all simply wonderful. The place is clean and it's super close to the city centre and a lot of local pubs. The other guests were super friendly and it was a great stay so when my trip to Ireland ended in Belfast... More
