Great selection of breakfast foods - especially loved having peanut butter and fresh fruit ;)

This hostel and its staff make you feel right at home. Very clean, great location and excellent kitchen facilities. Its full of character! I was lucky enough to sample the in house chef's cooking one night, it was a big family meal for everyone also very reasonably priced. The manager Richie took a group of us out to some local pubs, his dance moves were probably the best I've ever seen! (he should be a professional). I stayed a few nights longer then expected and I was still sad to leave!

This hostel is just amazing and the staff is so welcoming. I just had some problemes to sleep because I was in a 16-bed room and there were a lot of loud people. The only bad point would be that there are not enough blankets. The breakfast is really good and I like the paint on the walls.

Love this place instantly, the staff were friendly and helpful, pretty much made me feel part of the family instantly. Hostel is clean daily, facilities are great and I felt like it was my home on the first night. Location is a little off the city but there are nice pubs around and the staff will generally organise nights out whenever there is a good amount of people, theres a cool back yard with a pool table and smoking area. Definitely recommend a stay if you're in belfast!

We really enjoyed our stay, but as any hostel you have to know that it could be very noisy on evenings.

The staff used the en suite bathroom of our dorm, while we were there!!! Unfortunately they left the bath in a big mess with a lot of hair on the floor and everything was dump. The blankets where way too thin. At night it got very cold.

Vagabonds was amazing. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. From the moment we entered to the moment we checked out the staff and fellow travelers were beyond helpful. I could not imagine staying anywhere else in Belfast. I highly reccommend vagabonds!

Vagabonds is a "backpackers" dream destination. Staff is very friendly, people very friendly, as soon as you arrive and go through their doors they truly make you feel at home and as one of their own. As part of the family. Wether you go to Vagabonds with friends or on your own you will never feel alone, as they always involve you in their activities. Very respectful of you too. And facilities as clean and looked after. Make yourself a favor and stay at Vagabonds! You'll love it.

It can sometimes be difficult to feel at home in a hostel when you're not even staying for 2 full days. However, this is not the case with Vagabonds! Vagabonds has a chilled out and friendly vibe that allows guests to feel at home the minute they arrive! The guys working at the hostel were fun and easy going and joined us for drinks and games before everyone went out! You really cannot ask for more from a hostel! A big thank you to the Vagabonds crew for making our stay a brilliant one!
