Booked this hostel for my first trip to Belfast. Needed somewhere to stay that was cheap and close to the city centre, which Vagabonds had covered. VERY clean (the cleanest I've been in) and had everything you'd expect from a hostel that charges quite a large amount, so was very surprised, and stoked, to find an outdoor pool table, good...

This was my first stay in a hostel. I was kind of nervous, but after checking in I was put at ease. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The other guests were also friendly. Vagabonds has multiple showers and self service laundry is available. The hostel is close to downtown and has plenty of restaurants and pubs near it.... More

Had great fun in the garden with people from all around the world, even turned down a night out clubbing because we were having such a good night! Common room is great and the free breakfast great!

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

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
