    Best hostel in Belfast by miles. Lots of big open airy spaces which help avoid that claustrophobic atmosphere that plague so many other hostels. Immaculately clean and perhaps the kindest, most welcoming and hospitable hostel staff I’ve ever encountered.

    This hostel was one of the best hostels that I’ve stayed at. Everyone is super nice there and willing to help out. The room had luggage storage underneath the bed, bring your own lock. The bathrooms and showers were well kept. There is toast, cereal, and coffee/tea for breakfast. The atmosphere of this place is more of a laid back traveler type, which I loved. I will be definitely staying here again!

    This place felt like home for the night. Although home for me is quite different than home for many. The aesthetic and atmosphere of a communal living situation. The staff were amazing! They were friendly, helpful and made an effort to include everyone in what was happening. Beds were clean with lockers, lights and outlets at each one. There seemed to be plenty of toilets and showers to go around. It was definitely a party atmosphere the night I was there but was told it isnt always like that.

    The best hostel I've been staying so far! It's a very cozy place with lovely staff and guest. The staff is soo nice and friendly! They tell everybody to hang around in the hostel together to go to a pub together later on.

    This was my first hostel experience.I was quite apprehensive about the condition of the toilets in a hostel (since they are used by everyone). However,i found the toilets to be clean whenever i had to use them.The best part of the vagabond experience is the staff.Bob makes sure you are comfortable upon arrival and with his gift of gab, he keeps you entertained.Bob was quite helpful when we asked him for suggestions about exploring belfast.The kitchen is clean.Do stay here if you go to belfast :)

    Great place to stay. Had a great time with the people staying there! It is a small scale hostel which is good for small interactions. Would be great to have some organised activities though.

    I cycled in Northern Ireland and the Republic for 1 week. The Vagabonds ticked all the boxes for a big City environment starting point. Accomodation was clean and at the price superb value for money.

    The hostel overall had nice character and atmosphere, which made it better than the large chain hostels. It was possible to walk to most main sites in the city, or sites could be reached by bus. There is a small locker available in the room and an open bin to store luggage under the beds. Staff were welcoming and helped me call taxis and navigate the city. The bathrooms and showers got a bit messy during peak shower times as is often the case in hostels.
