I loved Vagabonds as soon as I walked through the door. Simply cool vibe, great staff, plenty of chill space, and just an overall great place. Staying there again on my way back through Belfast without a doubt. :)

Vagabonds would have to be one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Good facilities and excellent staff, who are always up for a chat and laugh. It's especially a great place for solo travellers - it has a really sociable vibe. I would most definitely stay here again, when visiting Belfast.

After an error with my booking the staff were amazing in handling everything. They made sure I had a bed to sleep in and the hostel had a pretty good atmosphere too. Easy to get chatting to others.

This hostel is very cozy and awesome for getting to know the other guests. Some of the staff are better than others but overall the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is a little further than other places but it is definitely worth the extra distance. The showers are absolutely amazing as well as the chill out room. I would definitely recommend this place to others and in fact I already have. Great Job Vagabonds!

We really enjoyed staying at Vagabonds! My boyfriend and I stayed at the 12 bed dorm and we weren’t sure if it was a good decision. Turn out to be that we had an incredible time, we met great people we went to tours and pubs with! The staff at Vagabonds was also incredible and always willing to help us and give us advices for what to do and when. Thank you Vagabonds!

Only had the pleasure to stay here on night, but it was great. Staff was very friendly and welcoming, showers good, rooms nice, clean fun atmosphere. Would definitely stay here again.

EXTREMELY kind and very understanding of travelers who have been on the road. Only three showers or so for the whole hostel, so it is best to take them at night. No big deal. I'd go here again in a heartbeat.

Need more plugs in the rooms/a light by each bed. Bathroom in the 14 bed dorm wasn't that clean. Apart from that it was a good stay

Vagabonds is truly a home away from home, the atmosphere is amazing. I couldn't recommend it more. Richard, Sarah and Mete' made me feel very welcome at the hostel. The rooms were cleaned daily and the facilities were spotless. The showers even had really good water pressure which was nice for a change! Thanks again guys - Tom

Ah man, I have 3 months of travelling left to go and I'd be lucky to find a hostel on the same caliber as Vagabonds from here onwards. The staff make you feel so welcome the momet you walk in the door, they really drive the warm and vibrant atmosphere that the whole places seems to emit 24/7. I actually felt like Vagabonds was home for a few days. Definitely the best hostel I've stayed at so far!

This was our first time for both myself & my husband staying in a hostel since we were backpackers. We were pleasantly surprised. We loved that the front door was always locked but it was a shame that locks weren't supplied for the under bed storage. There were 2 showers & 2 toilets in our room and we never had to queue. We really enjoyed the complimentary breakfast the next morning & loved the chit chat between the staff & guests. Will definitely be visiting here again, location was great!!
