Nothing really stood out for me with this hostel, either positively or negatively. I would still stay there if I was back in Belfast, but it was a very average hostel.
Vagabonds is the best hostel in my two-months travelling trip. i love the atmosphere, environment, ppl, staffs, moives& foods here. If i go to Belfast again, i will book this hostel for sure. Thanks staffs' cooking and pub guiding again!!!
One of the best hostels I have stated at. Hospitality was superb! Staff were friendly helpful and good fun. Staff took us out for drinks, recommended things to do by day, and Frankie cooks up a wicked meal each night for £4. If your not up for a party you can also chill hangout and watch movies. Location was great. Great to have had free parking also! Was sad to have to move on!
Great staff, fun atmosphere. Tight for space but clean.
Amazing staff! They take you out, cook amazing dinners, organize different events to help travellers meet each other. Laid back atmosphere, table tennis and pool tables in the back... One of the best hostels I've stayed at! Only downside - the bed wasn't the most comfortable, but with everything else, super minor!!! Love you guys!!! Will be back soon :)
Definately one of the better hostels I have stayed at, and I have stayed at several throughout Europe and Asia. The staff at the hostels, who are travellers themselves, always had time for a good chat, and went above and beyound their duty. Big up to Sophie and Frankie, who took us out each night. Definately stay there again on the next visit...Keep it real.
Loved this place!! The staff make this place. Fun crew! Really social. Frankie makes awesome dinners. Can't wait to come back!
Great staff at Vagabonds , felt very welcome loved the interior decor ! People were very friendly and breakfast was good ! One thing that didn't impress me was the beds though - very old and squeaky and you can literally feel the springs inside the mattress as your body sinks down into the bed *literally* ! Other than that , tops for everything else !
The best hostel in the amazing city of Belfast. The staff were friendly and it was like living with a great family. The showers were awesome and the beds were comfy. Great movie selection, when you want to just relax. Hope to stay again in the future.

Staff at Vanagabonds are super friendly :) !! I wasnt sure what to do in belfast so they made a plan for me and they also took me out to the pubs in Belfast :) The designs of this hostel is really unique too! I loved all the paintings etc they had! Highly recommended :)
Vagabonds is amazing! The staff is excellent, especially Kasia and Frankie (try one of his dinners), the location is convenient, and the environment is incredibly welcoming. I hope to be back in the future.
A very nice place to stay. Everything was clean, the showers were comfortable and hot, and the staff was great; very friendly atmosphere!. It was near everything (bus station, botanic gardens, city Centre). Good breakfast, well equipped kitchen (although a little small if you all are cooking at the same time), pool table (just 50p) and free ping pong table!. Electronic entrance door, key in the bedroom and lockers (bring your padlock). Thanks Mete, Casha, Frankie
Nice hostel ... Have stayed a couple of times now ...only criticism is that while breakfast is served from 8 it is rarely ready by 8 as morning staff do not appear to enjoy morning shifts agd checking out at 8 am takes longer than necessary as staff are quite grumpy at that hour of the morning . The rest of the time they are fabulous !!!
I have travelled off and on for the last 6 years have stayed at 100's of hostels and have just found the best one. The staff is amazing showing you around the city taking guests out every night for a few drinks. The hostel has everything you want pool table for a little fun, movies if you had a long night and want to relax. I am going to tell everyone to go here while in Belfast, I can not wait for my return in March. If you stay here have then book you a Black Cab Tour!!! From Alaska Jedd!!!!!!
The guys running this place are awesome and go out of their way to make you feel at home. Nice hot showers with glass doors! Best free breakfast I've seen.
I've been living in hostels for the past four months, and Vagabonds is the best I've stayed at. Excellent facilities, but what sets it apart is the great atmosphere created by the small size of the hostel and the amazing staff. Hats off to Rich, Frankie (who cooks great meals most nights) and all of the other staff. Very welcoming and entertaining place. Cheers guys!
Very good place to stay and chillout. The staff is great, specially for Kasia (or Cacha or Katsia or ka-tya), which will make you the best breakfast in your life.
Really enjoyed our stay at Vagabonds. Great location within walking distance of the centre and lots of decent, cheap places to eat nearby. Really friendly, helpful staff - esp, Frank! However, it was extremely noisy on the Saturday night that we stayed there but they did supply free ear plugs at the desk.
