Property Description

We are a large beautiful Belfast home that has been adapted into a comfortable hostel to meet all of your needs.

With us you can enjoy a FREE continental breakfast, made fresh every morning, our cosy rooms, and our experienced and knowledgeable staff.
Feel free to help yourself to our FREE tea and coffee all day long, enjoy our FREE WIFI which is available all throughout the building, and our in-house Cinema Room.

We are the perfect place for single travellers as we go the extra mile to ensure that you have a wonderful time in lovely Northern Ireland. We have nightly dinners where you can enjoy a home cooked meal with the other guests and our friendly staff.

With the “friendliest staff in Belfast” we can help you plan your stay, as they have extensive knowledge of the city, such as City Hall, The Wall Murals, Titanic Shipyard, Queen's University, Crown Liquor Saloon, and The Peace Walls. We are also more than happy to give you advice on tours all around Northern Ireland, as we only recommend the ones we have personally done, and we can organize and book these tours for our guests - like to the beautiful Giants Causeway and the famous Black Taxi tours.

We accept payments by cash, credit card, and debit card.
This property may pre-authorise your card prior to arrival. There may be a small charge if payment with credit card.

*Please ensure that all card information you provided is valid.*

Feel like a local at Lagan Backpackers, located in a classic Belfast home. Our large, characterful terraced house has been converted into a super-friendly hostel. After we've cooked you up a nightly dinner you can help yourself to free tea and coffee before settling down with a board game. In the morning, grab a complimentary city map and ponder over your itinerary with a free full-English breakfast before heading out into town.


It'll only take you half an hour to reach us from Belfast International Airport on the budget-friendly airport shuttle. Once you're here, Lagan Backpackers is a 10-minute stroll from Belfast Botanic Gardens and is next door to the Ulster Museum. The front desk team is more than happy to recommend routes to the famous wall murals and organise trips to Giant's Causeway. Along lively Botanic Avenue (a 4-minute walk away), there's no shortage of restaurants and the all-important Irish pubs for a post-tour pint.

Rooms and Dorms

We have a range of private rooms and mixed dorms for solo travellers and groups of mates. The light-blocking curtains covering each bunk in our shared rooms make sure you get a good night's rest and we always keep the noise down after midnight. There's a book swap going around for when a quiet night in is on the cards and fresh linen is included so you can make up a cosy bed.

Extras and activities

We keep reception open 24 hours a day so give us a shout if you're ever in need of a helping hand. You can store your belongings worry-free in our secure lockers and pick up adapters from reception when you need to charge up. There's no curfew either – in case you can't drag yourself away from the pubs! The whole hostel, including our relaxed communal areas, has free Wi-Fi. There's a dedicated games room and you can choose DVDs for movie night in our cinema room. Or get stuck into a PlayStation tournament with fellow guests.

    I absolutely adore this hostel. It’s a very homey environment and their references to pop culture and snarky decor gives the place a warm quirkiness. The staff are dope. Would definitely stay again.

    I chose Lagan Backpackers for this visit to Belfast because of the location and price. It is close enough to walk to/from the Botanic Train Station. I felt secure enough entering the hostel. The bathrooms were well organized but the sink countertop was wet and there was no way to dry the surface. The website stated that all the beds had privacy curtains. Only one bed in my room had them. The dining room was very crowded and uncomfortable.

    I have stayed a few times and I have always had a great stay. This time however my room was very dusty under the bed and around the walls, and with my asthma this leaves me very short of breath, everything else was great but getting to sleep and staying asleep was very difficult

    I only spent one night here but it was good. The dinner offered for £3 was delicious and free breakfast in the morning was great. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Bathrooms weren’t very clean, that was the only downside.
