The hostel was in a good location, it was clean most of the time. The staff was really nice and tried to help as much as they could and went out woth us a lot. All and all- a good experience. I was just surprised that there weren't lockers under the beds for the entire bag. I could just put the important stuff in a small locker in my room.

Vagabonds was a great place to stay. Incredibly freindly and helpful staff and a really nice atmosphere. Everyone was very welcoming, I would recommend anyone who is traveling by themselves stay here for a good time. The staff went above and beyond in order to help people staying there with day trips and travel around the rest of Ireland and the United Kingdom.

If you are looking for a safe hostel that knows how to have fun, then this is the place! Great staff that play pool, ping pong, and other games with you. My first night they organized around 20 of the guests to go to a local bar that played trad music. It's great seeing so many people that don't know each other having so much fun together! Anytime I stay in Belfast, this is the place I'll sleep for sure.

The hostel had couches for chilling, comfortable beds, nice showers and really good breakfast of fruit, toast, cereals etc. Thank you all for a great time, I would come back to Belfast just to stay at this hostel and dance Irish gigs at Robinsons Pub!

The hostel is a little ways from downtown but only about a 5 minute walk from the BOTANIC train station. The people running the hostel are awesome and very helpful.

Pittoresque and charming. Very loose! But the sheets were clean. (The kitchen wasn't and it was too small for that many people).

Staff were amazing! I got there at 7am after an overnight ferry and couldn't check in yet but they let me shower (and it was the best shower I've ever had at a hostel), have breakfast and even said I could nap on the couch. The hostel was very clean, wifi worked perfectly, breakfast was great and the atmosphere was unreal. The lounge area feels like home and the pool table and ping pong table area out the back was awesome, great for socializing. No wonder so many people come here & never leave!

Really friendly and welcoming staff. Down to Earth atmosphere and the place had a wonderfully adventure filled soul!
