I was really sad to leave this hostel. Always friendly staff around and they make you feel as though you are being welcomed into their home. It was the first time I've ever actually spent time hanging out at a hostel (usually just shower and sleep) but it was a such a great place it made More

Lovely hostel in a terraced street- great feeling of really being in the Northern Irish community. A short walk up Botanic Street, which had plenty of cafes and bars, and you reach the centre of Belfast. Good security, and the ladies working there were friendly and helpful. GREAT BONUS- More

Out of the 3 hostels I stayed at in Belfast, Lagan Backpackers was the most enjoyable. The staff were friendly and very informative with regards to Belfast itself. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. More

I loved the Doctor Who bedsheets! Comfy beds and surprisingly good shower. I was attending City Backpacker while attending TitanCon round the corner. There was an unfortunate incident with another hostel guest on the last morning, and the staff responded to this really well. Would More

The place is generally good, good location, close to some good bars and clubs. The kitchen was really below average. It smelled, knives were dull, so slicing some tomatoes could get really frustrating. Can opener didn't work, so i had to use a knife, which was quite risky. On the first More

The cleanliness of the rooms was good, the bathrooms were average but the kitchen was horrible! There were spiderwebs on the ceiling and grease on the walls and the cupboard! Now I understand why there are no pictures of the kitchen on the site .. More
