The great, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff sets this hostel apart from others. They've managed to create an easygoing and social atmosphere at the hostel, more so than other hostels I've been to. The hostel is clean and there are cool social areas, though toilets/showers are downstairs from the rooms. Free breakfast! (Toast, cereal, coffee/tea/juice). There are cages for your... More

Tons of toilets and showers down the hall. Two indoor lounge areas, one with a flat screen TV, a large dining table and good size kitchen. Also has a free pool table in another area with a large patio. Rooms were more spacious than most hostels. This was our favorite hostel.

I've been to my fair share of hostels in multiple countries, but this one was by far the best because of the people. It helps that there are many comfy couches and a large table with benches to facilitate hanging out and conversation during meals. However, it's really the staff that helped us feel at home. They were always around... More

Hands down the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The location is great, the accomodation is good quality for what you're paying for, the amenities are really nice and there is definitely room to relax, hang out, play pool, cook, etc. But, it is definitely the people who make this place feel like home. Also, Vagabonds is a place... More

Great staff, diverse and very friendly. Great hostel environment, very easy to meet people. Great location, very walkable to centre. It seems that there is always something to do, even on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

This hostel is one of the best I've ever stayed at. The staff is super friendly. The guy at reception even gave me a tour of the hostel on my first day! The free breakfast was a nice touch. It consisted of cereal, toast, jam, peanut butter, nutella, juice, coffee, tea, etc. The beds are kind of uncomfortable because you... More

I needed a cheap place to lay my head whilst visiting Belfast and Vagabonds was perfect for that! The staff were very friendly and accommodating, but work on "island time". The beds were very comfy for bunk beds. In a decent location and included breakfast was an awesome touch! Cons: the keys/doors are very old and don't work very well.... More
