Overview

Our colourful and quirky Vagabonds Hostel is inside a beautifully renovated listed building in one of Belfast's liveliest areas. Our beer garden's the place to be during the summer months, with regular barbecues to make the most of the long Northern Irish evenings. Whip up a feast in our well-equipped kitchen and enjoy it in the dining room (where you can get cosy by the traditional wood burning stove) or outside in our picnic area, just out front. As travellers ourselves, we know what's important – yep, free food! Get stuck into our free breakfast every morning.

Location

We're less than 15 minutes' walk from Europa Bus Centre, where you can grab express buses to both the city's airports. Speaking of which, we're half an hour away from Belfast City Airport by bus, and one hour from Belfast International. It only takes a few minutes to walk into the city centre from our hostel, which is in the middle of the bustling Queens Quarter. We're also 20 minutes by bus from the Titanic Exhibition Centre.

Rooms and Dorms

Get friendly with your fellow travellers in one of our mixed or female-only dorms, or treat yourself to some quiet time by booking one of our private twin or double rooms. Most rooms have a shared bathroom. We've got under-bed storage so you can keep your things safe while you explore, and we provide the linen so there's no need to bring along your favourite bedsheets!

Extras and activities

There's always a friendly crowd in our huge living room. Our book exchange is packed with interesting reads left by fellow travellers (why not brush up on your French!), and we've also got a great DVD collection for when you want to veg out with a movie. Always looking for something to do? Find someone to join you at our pool table or ask at the tours desk to get booked onto a trip.

    Definitely a more hipster or adventurer kind of vibe. Showers were good, beds were comfy, staff was friendly, chillout room was cozy, and breakfast is simple but free. Location is ok but definitely the better of hostels in Belfast. Security lockers and luggage storage available too.

    Vagabonds is one of the best hostels I stayed at during my month in Ireland. I’m immediately felt welcomed as soon as I walked through the door. It didn’t even feel like a hostel, it felt like a home. That made it even easier to meet the other travelers. Playing drinking games around the dining room table before ambling to the karaoke bar was a blast. My only gripe is I didn’t stay longer. Bonus: some of the staff watch Critical Role!

    Vagabonds is a really great hostel. Very cozy with a social atmosphere. I was pleasantly surprised by the level of cleanliness. Everyday the staff was cleaning the hostel from top to bottom. The bathrooms were always kept clean. Security was also very good, never was I feel worried about my stuff. Beds were comfortable. Nice kitchen that was also always clean. I will definitely stay at Vagabonds during my next visit to Belfast!
