The atmosphere was lovely, and the staff was nice, but a bunch of drunk guys downstairs made it impossible to sleep properly. The noise level was incredible.

This hostel has a great vibe! The staff was really helpful with everything, navigating the city, scheduling tours, finding bus... My only complaint was that the dorm got a bit cold at night. Vagabonds is a great hostel!

I have never been to a friendlier hostel! The staff were incredible and very welcoming. I had a job interview the morning after my stay and everyone in my room was so understanding and quiet and didn't wake me up when they were returning from their night out. Woke up in the morning to "Good Luck Angus!" scribbled on the wall of the common room. Will definitely visit again!

100% + 5 = 105% for Vagabonds!!! Such a great time at this hostel. I was staying there last Sept, and came back during some time off in January. Vagabonds is like a second home to me. The staff and owner are very welcoming and helpful to guests. Staff is very interactive with guests in there needs, with bringing them out everynight to local places and live music through out Belfast. Can not wait to return to Vagabonds during my time off in March, to visit with friends and meet new ones. -Alaska

The Israeli man at the hostel is very nice and helpful, however there is a general lawlessness at the hostel that is off putting. It was hard to stake hold of our beds as other people reclaimed our bed a couple of times. The main complaint isn't so much the staff as the other hostel visitors.

+1 = 101% Vagabonds is by far the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Friendly, helpful staff. Very clean. Chill setup. Bathrooms are actually private bathrooms with own showers, brand new, always clean and stocked. Breakfast pretty good, many jams/spreads to choose from and cereals, coffee, juice. Always stuff going on at night and many people to meet. Cannot think of one bad thing to say. Shoutouts to Pete, Frankie, and Richie. Thanks for everything! Wish we could've spent more time there!
