The 7 of us absolutely fell in love with this hostel. We have spent three nights in Belfast and haven't been to any pubs or restaurants because we all wanted to stay at Vagabonds. Coolest place ever, and perfectly clean. It felt like home !!

Clean, great shower rooms, friendly staff. Easy to meet fellow travelers and free breakfast was simple but good. Seems there's different pubs the staff take guests depending on the night so it's not the standard pub crawl each night, much better this way. Will definitely return if/when back in Belfast.

Great concept on how to run a hostel,great atmosphere ,good location. Only thing that bothered me was the last night I stayed the staff were blind drunk.Now thats okay,but considering u have signs all over the place saying be quiet at 11:30, it hypocritical when staff are not.Who tells the staff to be quiet at 2am. Without paying guests,you have no hostel!And they disregared it that night.

HI Vagabonds! Thank you for such a great stay. We are still talking about it. The staff was great, the rooms and facilities were cozy, and we had a really fun night hanging out and playing pool with everyone. I even found a book thanks to your beautiful book exchange. So many hostels are skimping on this lately it's been hard to find things to read! We want to come back soon and stay longer! Go vagabonds!

Best hostel I've ever stayed at! This place has the most amazing vibe to it, you walk in and everyone is extremely friendly and hanging out. I was solo and made a lot of friends here--the staff went out with us one night and we danced our asses off! There's pool and ping pong out back and the kitchen can't be beat. Breakfast has tons of jam and Nutella, and oranges which are a nice touch. If you're in Belfast do yourself a favor and book this place! Theres no way you'll regret it!

Great stay! The staff are very friendly and knowledgable with the local area. They are welcoming and invite you to join them in the evenings for going to good pubs and live music. The breakfast is simple but delicious and filling; various cereals and jams/spreads for toast as well as oranges and juice. Common areas are also welcoming. Overall a great time and would stay there again

Honestly one of the best hostel experiences I've ever had. As a solo traveller, it was really easy to meet other people in the hostel, as the employees made you feel very welcome and made sure you knew what was going on the days you were staying there. Very clean, great vibe, free breakfast, and excellent location. 10/10.

Friendly hostel in great location. Nice private twin room, only issue would be showing facilities, where supply was a little outstripped by demand and temperature not perfect. All in all though, good value for money and would stay again.

This is not a hostel for the unfriendly. Yes there are a lot of staff members but they are all generally vey friendly and will try to include everyone around when going out. The hostel itself needs to update it's matresses as sleeping on springs is no fun art all.
