This is one of the best hostels I've ever been to! Very friendly staff, helping you out with everything (superglue, lost SD cards, phone calls..) What I enjoyed most was the atmosphere. It was very easy to get to know people and I felt so comfortable there!

We stayed here for three nights for my husband's birthday, and whilst it was the first time for a while that I've stayed in a hostel, it was a pretty good experience. The breakfast (cereal, toast, tea, coffee) etc, was great, and meant that everybody could eat something, regardless of how much money they had. The bathrooms were pretty clean... More

On the website it's so flash! Don't be fooled! Check out some of my photos! You will be disgusted! I stayed in a doubled bed room to myself which was more like a cold coffin with no heating at All. It was so cold I had to sleep with a jumper and socks on!. My two friends stayed in a... More

The staff were super friendly and ALWAYS on hand if you needed help getting into your room or turning on the stove or finding a new ping pong ball. The common areas were great and very inviting. It is the first hostel where I have actually wanted to hang out in the common areas, because of this. Great perks like... More

While my significant other had traveled extensively using hostels in the past, this was my first time. Even though we were probably the oldest people in the house, we still felt comfortable. As always in Ireland, people were warm, welcoming and eager to help. Still, its definitely geared towards a younger crowd, as it should. Unlike others, we did not... More

We have really liked the place! The common room is somewhat small but very cozy, there is always some light music playing, some instruments that you can borrow (guitars, didgeridoo!), DVDs... There is a back garden with billiard and table tennis. We stayed in a 14 bed room - it was also small, but clean; someone closed the window during... More

We stayed here for one evening and were very happy with our choice. We had a private room which was cosy but clean and comfy. Staff were friendly and the simple breakfast was good. It is close to the city and centre and the university. Is recommended.

I booked this hostel for my fiancé and myself after many days of researching the best places to stay, and booked it far in advance as I know summer months cause spots to fill up fast. I did have to call them to get the reservation extended by one day, upon which they emailed me with the new check in... More

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...
