The crew is available to give information at any hour and is really friendly and nice. We all went out together for a bar crawl after eating Victor's delicious burritos. I highly recommend this hostel !

25 minute walk from Belfast City Centre which was inconvenient. On the other hand, the staff were fantastic and couldn't do enough to help!

Good hostel to spend one or two nights. Breakfast is good, there are curtains around the beds, staff is nice. Bad thing: poor conditions in the bathrooms.

Sorry for the slight inconvience. As we mentioned when we checked you in... this is the quietest time of the year whey we are working on the bathrooms as there is so few people in the hostel. And More than enough other bathrooms while we work on one or two bathrooms

Very very very disappointed by this hostel. One shower does not work. One does not have a lock on the door. So 3 showers for the entire hostel. Beds are absolutely uncomfortable. The only thing that is any good is the breakfast and the beds have curtains. AVOID IF POSSIBLE. There are far better hostels in Belfast.

I would recommend this hostel for the location and for value for money. You get a free breakfast in the morning. The scrambled eggs could be a little more cooked. I small bedside light would be very good as not to disturb the other guests. Thank you

Fantastic hostel. The location was further from the city center than I had expected, but not a far walk by any means. The staff had good knowledge of the city, and the hostel was very clean with a nice cozy atmosphere. As a young female, I did not feel unsafe at any point.

The bathrooms and dorm floors were kind of nasty, but we still had a great stay- the staff ae super helpful and the atmosphere is great for meeting people.

We enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and the possibilities of having good breakfast and dinner at the hostel! The recommended tours and trips which we could also book at the reception were the best way to get an idea of the history of Belfast and the sights of Northern Ireland. We definitely recommend the Black Taxi Tour!

By far our favorite hostel in Ireland/Northern Ireland!

The hostel provides only very few common areas and space for eating meals. Hostel also offeres day trips to Giants Causaway, which was the most unprofesional trip we ever had. Not to recomend!

Overall the experience was really good. The staff were lovely and really well informed on good activities to do. The only drawback was the bathroom. One bathroom for 3 rooms of people isn't enough and it also wasn't the cleanest bathroom ever. That being said, with it being only a 20 min walk to the centre of town, Lagans was good value for money. Would recommend!

This hostel is comfortable and warming. The staff are friendly and helpful. They make you feel like you're at home. It's only a short walk to the city center and all amenities are within 5 minutes walking. All in all a great place to stay.

They only had 2 lockers for the 5 bed dorm I stayed in. The place was very shoddy. Only 1 bathroom per floor. (aka 1 toilet and 1 shower.) They said on their website that there would be free transport too and from Dublin but the staff seemed to know very little about it. I called and asked for details and the guy who answered told me to just look at the website because he didn't know. I actually got to Belfast okay but when I enquired about a ride back to Dublin the staff had no idea.

We want to thank you on behalf of all other customers that want to use our FREE transport from Dublin. Unfortunately after dealing with yourself and the fact that you just jumped on a tour bus without any reservation whatsoever, we have no choice but to stop doing the free tours as not only that you inconvenience the tour company but then also blame us for you not making a reservation properly.

The staff were amazing and the breakfast was incredible! Loved the curtains on the beds too, provided great privacy. Thanks for a fab stay, I LOVED Belfast!

Good place to stay for a few nights, rooms aren't all the same size , some 4 beds are much smaller than others, most of the toilets are in the same room as the shower so that can be frustrating. But Lagan has a real cozy/home feel to it and staff were quite friendly. Value for money , would stay again.

The staff at Lagan worked very hard to keep the hostel very clean and the personalised brekkie for everyone was lovely! Haven't stayed in a hostel so personable and always looking out for our needs. Thanks Lagan! I stayed in the sister hostel, Finn McCool, near the Giant's Causeway and it was perfect. It is a quaint house with a conservatory to sip tea and watch the skies change dramatically. I am missing the toast Steve made for brekkie already :p
