If you are looking for an uptight, stuck-up, tidy, kind-of-high-class place to stay, DO NOT GO to Vagabonds. This is a friendly, informal, relaxed, "don´t worry be happy" kind of hostel. It could be a friend´s house where you happen to be staying for a while. It´s not too big nor modern, and as a result is quite more cozy than other places I´ve been.
Pros:
* close to the city center, but not too close to be noisy (10 min walk from bus station).
* stuff VERY friendly
* nice clean beds and bathrooms.
* free tea and coffee all day long
* very nice breakfast
* kitchen open 24/7
* nice place to relax and smoke (as in, not outside the hostel behind the trash cans, thank you!)

CONS:
* bathrooms outside bedroom
* no elevator (well, there are only 3 floors, nobody will die for that)
* ... I CAN´T REMEMBER OTHER CONS!

So yes, I definitely would recomend this place, though probably not to a serious or picky person.

Planned to stay one night and ended up staying four, it's a fantastic hostel, great facilities, nice and clean and the staff are wonderful! Highly recommend the black taxi tour and the one to the Giants Causeway (they will sort all that for you). It's a very central hostel and close to great bars. If you want a great time in Belfast stay here!

This place is great! So much fun, great facilities, creatively decorated, the best hostel I've ever been to. We had a BBQ with a lot of other guest and staff (spontaniously), which turned into a great party. Staffmembers are from all around the world and are not paid (they get a bed and some meals) so they are all at Vagabonds because they enjoy their time there. If you are looking for a fun time in Belfast, go to Vagabonds!

Such a great place - lovely, friendly welcome from staff on arrival, and really helpful throughout our stay. Such a laid back yet stylish place.

We had a double room which was small as you'd expect, but very nice. Whole hostel was very clean, especially the bathroom areas. Had a few good nights' sleep.

Staff know what to recommend in the local area, very knowledgeable. Location was great for us - easy to get into the City Centre and easy to get to where we spent much of the weekend (King's Hall).

Only downsides are what you'd typically expect in a hostel - food being nicked out the fridge, people not being respectful and talking loudly late at night on stairways. But don't let that put you off!

Book here!

I booked Vagabonds as a surprise trip to Belfast for my best friends 21st birthday.

The hostel was always kept clean and the staff were always friendly and helpful. The best part of the hostel hands down is the common rooms and terrace area. There is a pool table, ping pong table and sofa area with TV.

I would recommend Vagabonds, but next time I went I would try to get a private room, or go as a group and fill a room (I recommend booking in advance!). My friend and I stayed in a 6 bed all female dorm and to be honest the room was a little on the small side, and although the staff can't control whom we shared a room with, having two middle aged women who went to bed at 9pm mean't that my friend and I often felt like we couldn't be in our own room, using the hall ways to get ready in due to the cramped conditions.

The hostel is definitely more on the lively side and therefore I would recommend it to those looking to socialise over sleep.
