Great stay in the middle of the city center! So easy to find, safe area, close to great food, shopping, and sites. Friendly welcome, tours can be booked at the desk, and the staff show you great local places to hang out. Plus free wifi, linens, and breakfast!

Love a good party, but screaming out psycho killer until 3am isn't much fun for people that have to get up at 4:30am to catch a flight.

Great hostel, nice helpful staff, relaxed friendly atmosphere, overall we are very glad to have stayed at Vagabonds in Belfast! Only problem being the bathrooms for the downstairs dorm : only 2 toilets and 2 showers for 14 people can make mornings (and evenings) problematic, and the poor ventilation with no windows at all makes the bathroom very very damp all the time. At least adding a sink inside the dorm would make it easier to brush teeth, take out lenses or quickly wash one's face!

I likes the energy in this hostel. Most bathrooms and showers had been updated modernized. I am older travelers (50s) and this hostel stuck me as a younger person's hostel. The kitchen was really small so don't plan on cooking any meals there. The common area coaches and chairs.could use a good cleaning.

Lively hostel. Definitely suited to the younger travellers. The staff are always keen for drink and to show you the local bars, it is hard to tell who actually works there and is running the place though.

Excellent location and amazing outdoor garden area. If you like partying this is the place for you! Can be quite noisy at night and all the mattresses in my room had springs sticking into your back. But if you go out with the staff and other travellers and have a few beers, I'm sure you will sleep well and neither of these things will bother you! Staff are pretty friendly but the reception just seems unorganised and you can never tell who works there. Would still come back and stay again.

A really cool hostel and fun environment. It would be very hard not to enjoy your stay. The breakfast was great - really good selection of cereals, bread and spreads and even fresh fruit:) Great staff and great atmosphere, would definitely come back.

The boys at reception were very sweet and helped everyone checking in carry their bags upstairs. The place was nice and the rooms cosy. Only negative was that there were lines for the bathrooms occasionally.

Really good hostel for meeting people, so if your travelling alone it's ideal. The staff are really friendly and helpful and get everybody involved. Also breakfast is included and has a lot of choice.

Great hostel! Excellent location near the old part of town, and shopping area. We were walking distance to everything we wanted to see/do. The staff were all very friendly and helpful! Our room was en suite and very clean! The kitchen (could use a little fixing up) and lounge are located in the basement where there is plenty of space to hang out. Very reasonably priced.

This hostel has a really great atmosphere. Clean and there's free breakfast. I liked the location, easy to walk to the center but also near the university district and botanical gardens. Would stay here again!

We spent one night at the hostel and we really enjoyed the atmosphere, typical youth hostel .We "oldies" stayed in a private room while our sons slept in a dorm. Lively and friendly and yet not too noisy during the night!! The central location wad very handy too. Thanks to the staff for their helpfulness.

Vagabonds is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff are very helpful, it is in a good location, I have now been there twice and will defiantly be going back again.

Fun atmosphere, fun people, a fun place to stay! Definitely on the younger side so expect noise until later on the weekends, but that also means you're bound to meet people to join you in whatever you're doing. A great place!
