When I switched off the light on my room, a green light kept on all night. I think it was from some emergency device, but it was too shiny.

Surprised at your comment, all our beds have privacy curtains and I'm surprised that the emergency light was an inconvenience.

This was one of our favourite hostels we stayed in on our trip! It seemed a little pricey but our room was clean and comfortable! Staff was super friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the area! Would definitely stay here again! Walls were a little thin as we did have trouble from a Neighbouring room and also it was difficult to get bathroom and shower time for the amount of people on each floor.

Rooms need to be cleaned more thoroughly Bathroom floor towel needs to be changed daily or every other day to stop the spread of any foot infections to travellers. The bathroom mats where soaking every day.

Sorry for not being as clean as usual; in the last fortnight workmen have been refurbishing all our showers, replacing the carpets, etc.

Best Hostel I've ever stayed in! The staff are amazing, really friendly and offer loads of advice on what to do in and around the city. The room I stayed in was great, and it's clear that the hostel has had refurbishments done recently, the bathroom and the carpets both looked great! 10/10, would highly recommend.

We instantly were welcomed at Lagan! the current staff are fantastic and my group would go back there in a heart beat! The cooked brekkie was delicious and the staff were super helpful in providing info as to where to go etc. Location was perfect and walking distance to all Belfasts major attractions, also not too far from the airport which is a bonus. Lagan offers day tours that are definitely worth checking out! Very clean and would recommend to everyone! Thank you Lagan for an awesome stay!

Though it's not the cleanest Hostel I have stayed at, but it was certainly the best so far. The staff working there made it for me. Lagan Hostel was defiantly the most welcoming hostel. Fraser, Tats, Tommy and the two other French Boys were just absolutely lovely. It's the best hostel for solo travelers. Thanks I had a good time.

Very enjoyable stay, the cooked dinners and breakfasts were a nice touch too. Staff were very helpful. While good, it was still a bit pricey for a hostel.

Good location and friendly staff with good breakfast. Only downside is the place is currently under renovation and our room smelt of fresh paint. But the room was great and we enjoyed the comfy beds Thanks for a great stay guys!

Was charged extra £35 as was with 2 children; told that had to pay for 4th bed in our dorm although there were only 3 of us; seemed unfair as hostel wasn't full. Stayed in other hostels (Bushmills + Belfast) with myself and 2 kids in 4 bed dorm and neither charged us extra. Room like a prison cell. Dingy view onto dirty yard /fire escape, horrible smell coming from windowless shower room / toilet opposite our door. Porridge inedible. Staff were friendly and helpful, pleasant atmosphere.

The pricing structure was made clear. Sorry you were unhappy. The 4 bed room is clean and exactly the size one would expect in a hostel. Ps, Bushmills is a sister hostel Glad you enjoyed it.

My second stay in this hostel and it was as good as the first. The girl at reception is very nice and friendly, and also makes a good brekkie! Good location near Queens and easy to walk into town

I have been to a lot of hostels but this one was the most disgusting one. I will try to be as objective as possible. One of the showers was full of hair and it was blocking the drain; the room floor was also not as clean as you would expect. In my room (the attic) there wasn't a window or AC and the air was not fresh at all. At some point during the night I woke up by the lack of oxygen.
