Showers were not working. Staff were ok but seemed as if everything was to much effort for them. I would look for another place next time staying in Belfast.

Hostel is in such a great location and the staff were very helpful. Good value for money. Only issue was that my boyfriend's belongings got moved from his bed and placed onto a table in the room we were staying in as someone took his bed. It was not a big issue as there was another clean bed in the room that no one was sleeping on however, a similar issue occurred in another room whilst we were staying so I think the hostel should perhaps rethink the way they issue beds. Great hostel though.

Great staff who create an awesome atmosphere at the hostel by always being around and hanging out. The rooms were clean, but a little crowded. The bathrooms were clean and decent. The courtyard has pool and ping pong and the common area has a nice tv with attached to a hard drive with tons of shows to watch. This was an awesome hostel experience.

It was a great hostel overall. It really seemed like a shared house than a hostel. Staff was really great and friendly. The only thing was the lockers under the bed didn't seem secure. I had no problems but it still made me worry.

This was a great, homey and comfortable hostel. My only complaint would be that I needed to leave by 7am to catch a flight and had to spend about 15 minutes trying to wake up the staff member, whom I had warned the night before about my early departure, in order to get my driver's license back from the front desk. Once he was awake, he was so hung over, it took him another 15 minutes to even comprehend my request and find the driver's license. That was a stressful final experience at Vagabonds.

Vagabonds was such a nice hostel. The staff was so friendly, warm and welcoming. They were definitely the best staff of any hostel I have stayed in. The atmosphere of the hostel was so nice. I loved the courtyard with table tennis and a pool table. Bathrooms were always clean. It was a great hostel. We even extend our stay in Belfast because the hostel was so lovely.

the hostel is about a 10min walk from the bus station. pretty much a straight shot and then it's on the right, behind the gate, across from the crescent church. it is quite a walk from the city centre where all the shops are. the staff were friendly. wifi was good in the rooms. they don't assign beds so be sure to mark your territory or else it's taken by the end of the night. rooms and bathrooms were clean.
