This hostel was okay, I would rate it at 72% overall. There was a great free breakfast included which is nice, you can order from a menu with 5 options. There's also a 3 pound dinner you can buy into, a hostel workers makes something they like - we didn't choose this but can be a good and cheap option.... More

A friend of mine and I, 21 years old both of us, stayed here for 2 days. The staff was incredibly nice. The hostel is clean and has a lot of security measures (codes for entering the hostel and the room). The free breakfast was really good, you can choose which kind of breakfast do you want, and although we... More

Stayed here for a few nights and highly recommend!!! Lovely staff. Very friendly and accommodating. Great times were had every night. Hot breakfast included; they also make a nice home-cooked dinner for cheap. If you are looking for more than just a room, definitely stay at Lagan's! One of the most memorable places I have stayed. Loved it!

This was one the best hostels I've been to. The staff is amazing, they really made me feel like I belong. Really helpful and friendly people there. They were playing games every night with the tennants, cooking dinner that everybody could taste, and giving great tips what to do in the city.

There is complimentary full English Breakfast that we missed :( as we left early but we could see people prepare it and it seemed pretty good. The only thing that I didn't like was... More

It is situated close to Queens' University, but away from Belfast city center. This place is clean and provides excellent wireless internet connectivity facility. Breakfast is free-of-charge with a variety of choice from a typical Irish breakfast menu. The friendly staff male staff will help you enjoy your time there. However there are mixed dorms for all visitors at affordable... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Included is a FREE English Breakfast that includes Bacon, Sausage, egg, beans and toast. Or Porridge or scrambled eggs and bacon. Please note breakfast is strictly between 8 and 10 with no exceptions. All breakfast served only with coffee or tea. Lagan Backpackers is simply a large Belfast house that has been converted into a Backpackers Hostel; and it is owned and run by a South African guy who knows what backpackers want. Our high ratings are mostly due to the great attention and recommendations that you can expect from both myself and my staff. My idea for a great hostel is very simple: to make you feel at home. To give you a comfortable bed to sleep in, to keep the noise down after eleven to ensure a peaceful sleep and to make you feel so at home that you make new friends and enjoy Belfast as much as possible. We provide advice on all tours of Northern Ireland, and will only recommend tours that we have personally experienced. We advise that our customers do not pre-book tours before visiting as we find that some tour operators overcharge and do not provide the level of customer satisfaction that we expect for our guests. In addition to this, Lagan Backpackers hostel is very friendly to single travellers, as we go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay. We are located minutes from the City Centre, the Lagan River and the picturesque Queens University campus; and mere moments away from the lively Botanic Avenue where there are many restaurants, shops, pubs and clubs for our customers to enjoy. Additionally, the Botanical Gardens that boast beautiful greenhouses and the famed Tropical Ravine is a short walk away, adjacent to the Ulster Museum. ** No groups, stag parties, hen parties or drunken weekends like Paddys day!! Please remember only for the 11,12,13,14 July I do not accept booking from people from the UK (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales..Also no American or Canadian band members). This is only for the marching season. No refunds on deposits will be given and you will be turned away on arrival. No stag or hen parties or groups without prior permission. ... more   less
