For the price, you really can't do better than this in Belfast. Great location for going out and only a short walk to most of the major attractions. Very clean, and the most comfortable mattresses I've ever slept on in a hostel. Also, the free breakfast - you really can't beat this! Fried egg (or scrambled), bacon, sausage, beans... and real coffee. Not only that but the dinner they offer for 3 pounds is amazing too, and well worth it if you get back from a huge day of touring and just can't bear the thought of having to go out hunting for food. A cheeseburger, mountains of chips, salad (lettuce and tomato), and steamed vegies, as well as a glass of cider... need I say more?
Hostel staff were really friendly, happy to help us arrange tours and give directions. Common room had a massive supply of movies and a huge projection screen, if we were staying longer we'd have definitely made use of that. Very nice decor, and just a generally great vibe to the entire place.
I'd recommend Lagan's in a heartbeat to anyone looking for budget accommodation in Belfast. I only wish there were more hostels like this around the world.
- 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
