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

Can’t fault it really: food was good, atmosphere was better, beds were well-made, staff were a very friendly bunch that were eager to spend time with the guests. Overall an immensely sociable, laid-back place that welcomes you warmly in to Belfast.

You can store your belongings in safety area underneath the bed with a lock purchased at reception. It is busy during weekends and prices normally go up whereas during weekdays it is a normal budgetary accommodation. Lounge area... More

After reading the reviews about Vagabonds Hostel I was a bit disappointed. The positives are that it has a relaxed atmosphere & is conducive to meeting people. Also the staff are friendly, helpful and also willing to go out to a pub with groups with the guests. The free breakfast (toast, cereal, tea & coffee) is a nice touch. The... More

In the first week of May my boyfriend and I stayed in Vagabonds for three nights. We had a cosy double room. The staff is really friendly and want to help you whenever needed. They have great ideas and are very up- to -date with what is happening in the city, so should you come to Belfast clueless; ask them... More

Clean beds and showers! The wifi was spot on and the staff really friendly and helpful. My boyfriend and I stayed in the dorms and they each had new sheets and a comforter-towels cost a £1. Showers have good pressure and very hot water. Book a head though- the place gets full fast.
