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.

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.

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!

Stayed for 4 nights. Great staff and location. This place had a fun vibe and a really awesome group of people. Kitchen was set up really nicely with free tea and coffee, pretty good breakfast. Facilities were clean and tidy, they even have a ping pong table and billiards! The best part though is the people. The common room makes it easy to chat with everyone and has a TV where we watched the world cup games or a movie. Great place to be, highly recommend!

Truly a home away from home. The staff at Vagabonds became our own little Belfast Family. Recommended plenty of things to do and was very accommodating for our need to watch the World Cup. PS Sean is handsome and Bob makes awesome pasta.

The atmosphere of Vagabonds was incredible. The staff were friendly, super helpful, and just plain amazing! The hostel is itself was in a great location and close to the bus station and everything we wanted to see such as the Titanic Museum. Being in our early twenties this was a perfect place to meet people around our age from different places around the world. I highly recommend this hostel you will not regret it!!

Vagabonds was the best hostel I stayed in over a 4-month backpacking trip in Europe. I spoke with people who had reorganized their travel itineraries to stay there longer. The staff was relaxed yet accommodating, the house had everything I needed (clean facilities, WiFi, lockers, great kitchen. etc.), and you can be as involved with the going-out scene as you like (including not at all). Honestly, hanging out on the back patio area with other travelers was a fave memory from my visit to Belfast.
