Hostel staff were very friendly and extremely helpful, very good knowledge of the city itself and on advising where to go. Provision of maps and the ability to book the tours through the hostel were very useful saving having to search ourselves. Room was nice and clean, as was the shared WC facilities, only negative was there was only 3 lockers in a room of 5. Otherwise extremely good value with the room and free breakfast, would definitely recommend to others.

Is not so bad for only one night, but we couldn't use the kitchen even if we knew the opposite!

The front door and room doors are on via security code. The lockers in the rooms are a bit shanty, but I found one that did it's job well enough. The staff is AMAZING. Super friendly, super helpful, super fun. The beds are really comfortable too. The breakfast service is fantastic! Not your usual hostel-breakfast. It's warm and made-to-order from a pre-set menu. The location is pretty good too. It's only a 15 walk from either bus station. Definitely value for your money at Lagan.

Hostel is in a good location, only about 10-15 min walk from main bus station. Staff are friendly and helpful and served a nice breakfast. 4 person room was a bit small for 4 but was clean and good bathroom facilities.

It's a really nice place to stay. I'd recommend it to anyone coming to Belfast for a few days. The wireless was a bit awkward to use but it did work in all the rooms and the staff was very helpful with it. They really will go out of their way to help with anything that you need. The only downside really is the annoying water temperature changes in most of the showers that really are quite drastic. Other than that, it was a lovely stay and there were some great other guests staying too.

The hostel doesn't have the modern facilities, but it more than makes up for it with a very helpful staff and a location that makes it easy to get to the city center, the university, or bars and nightlife. It was perfect for my short stay.

Never been to Belfast before and ended up booking this hostel mainly because of how cheap it was. I must say, I was extremely pleased with the service I received during my stay! It was really clean, the location was safe, and the staff were so helpful and friendly. Really felt part of the family there and really enjoyed my stay. I would recommend to anyone and would definitely stay there again!

The 12 dorm room was a little bit cramped, but was okay. The 5 dorm room at the attic had no electrical outlets which was really annoying.

Hi The 5 bed dorm has 6 outlets actually. Asking the staff would have been a good idea, They would have pointed them out

Lagan Backpackers was great! What it lacked in facilities (e.g. showers are weak and difficult to operate) it made up by its excelent atmosphere and homey feeling. Željka was extremely helpfull and friendly, she made sure our stay there was as good as it can be. Rest of the staff was also nice, we talked, laughed and hung out, and that is something bigger and more modern hostels never have. Breakfast was very nice but the dinner burgers were not so good. Rooms, beds and toilets were clean.

Great atmosphere, and it was a really great hostel to stay at. Wifi was a little dodgy but useable for the most part, I had a really great time at this hostel and everyone was nice and friendly. They gave you tips about the city and area and I would definitely recommend the Giants Causeway tour here, it's a great price and really great experience, make sure you book it with the hostel. Would definitely stay again!

We loved staying here after our warm welcome. They arranged a black taxi tour while the room was being prepped which gave us a lot of historie about the area. In the evening we could join a BBQ for just 3 euro's and had a lovely night with the other guests.

My favorite of all the hostels visited on my trip. Great location, homemade breakfast, nightly dinner available for €3 if you're on a budget, very helpful staff. They'll book any tour you'd like to do right at the front desk, even a free walking tour from a friendly Kiwi...very convenient. The best thing about this place was the atmosphere. Plenty of common areas around the place, and some of the staff even took us bar hopping a couple nights. Great place. Would definitely stay again.
