I stayed in a 14 bed dorm which usually would be terrible, but my stay at Vagabond was actually quite pleasant. The rooms and bed were clean. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful, and there was a free breakfast in the morning which made my good stay even better. I would definitely recommend Vagabonds to any backpacker visiting Belfast.

I arrived at this hostel towards the end of a long trip, and it was everything I could have wanted in a hostel. Upon arrival we were met by a friendly staff member (Sean) who gave us a guided tour of the hostel, explaining how breakfast, wifi, tours etc worked. He then proceeded to point out on the map all...

Couldn't fault it at all, i would recommend going private as its not much more expensive. The staff are great, very accomodating, they offered to cook dinner for us one evening and all. Location is grand, on a quiet road but only about a 10-15 min walk into the city so you're never far away from everything!

While this hostel is a little small (the 14 bed dorm was pretty cramped), it was wonderful! The people who work there are so friendly and it has a house-type vibe. There are living room spaces and a kitchen space and everyone sits around, it's a great way to meet other travelers and to learn about the local area. We... More

This Hostel is so quaint, and fun. It's in a really good area. The people that worked their were the best, they were helpful, friendly, funny, they hung out with us and became our friends which didn't happen in most of our hostels, but I loved it. The free breakfast was the best and the showers were perfect. The only... More

I stayed in this hostel for three nights, and I could not have enjoyed it more! The hostel was easy to find (important point, as I can hardly read maps ;)) and close to the main bus and train station. The staff was super friendly and always helpful, special thanks to Shaun and Patrick :) The hostel itself is clean,... More

Cool spot in Belfast. It's a bit of a stroll from the bus station but not the worst. Close to the university and botanical gardens and about a mile walk into city center. Nice outdoor beer garden or hangout spot. Two sitting areas and a big kitchen seating area. The staff were mostly good though one guy seemed to be... More

My sister and I stayed at Vagabonds 4 years ago and fell in love with it. I loved it so much I came back a second time and it's still just as good. The staff are really friendly and helpful and that's what makes Vagabonds so memorable. I spent many hours outside using the Ping pong table which is great... More
