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


Very good hostel. The people working there are very kind and helpful. Good price/quality relationship.


I really really love this fantastic place !!!!!!
