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 continental 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.

    Bathroom hand drying situation needs to be improved (a shared towel that wasn’t changed multiple times a day?) and our room was rather noisy but it was a solid place to sleep. Staff was helpful and free parking was a plus
