I was part of a group of 7 that recently stayed at Vagabonds. We all really enjoyed our 3-night stay. Upon arriving, we were met by friendly staff who offered to carry our bags up the stairs after giving us a tour of the hostel (this was really nice). The hostel additionally offers breakfast (from 8 am to 11 am)... More

We stayed at Vagabonds for three nights. For the first night, it was just three of us and we were in a comfortable and clean room for four people. On the second and third night, we had 4 friends join us, and stayed in a room for eight altogether. Vagabonds was extremely accommodating, and I would recommend it to all.

Spend one night there and you will leave after meeting nice people. Spend two nights and you will leave friends behind you (you can even... More

The guys who work here are super lovely. I love the relaxed feeling of the place, it's very cosy. The female dorm I stayed in was spacious although the mattress could do with a upgrade. Breakfast is the basics toast and cereal which is nice since it's free. Bathrooms are nice but could use with a little tidy up in... More

Great location close to many bars and music venues, friendly staff and overall nice clean, modern hostel for in my opinion reasonable price. Basic breakfast provided in morning. Particularly enjoyed the log fire on a cold winters night.

A friend and I visited Belfast for two days so we stayed in the vagabonds for a night. The staff is great and the venue very nice, with big smoking area. The only thing I didn't like were the partly dirty toilets and showers. But still a very recommended place to stay if you like to have a talk with... More

To say my stay was nothing but exceptional would be an understatement. Travelling around at Christmas time can be lonely however from the moment Richard greeted me at the front door I knew this hostel was going to be like home! He personally showed me around the hostel and offered me the or coffee, gave me a chocolate of the... More

This hostel is in a great location and the staff are nice and friendly especially Bob. The rooms are fine and clean but Iv never seen worse mattresses. They are almost not there. if you pay almost €20 a night you should be getting a decent bed. Please consider changing this management as your hostel would be worth much more... More

Stayed in Vagabonds last Monday and Wednesday - had to arrive really late at night and leave really early in the morning. Staff were so friendly and accommodating for this. Room was just as expected and very clean, as were the bathrooms. Would love to go back and spend more time because there seems to be cool hangout areas and... More
