    I have been staying in hostels when traveling for the last 20 years. This is the best hostel I have ever been to. The sense of community is strong and the showers are amazing.

    I spent one night at the Vagabonds hostel and I immediately felt at home! Richard and his staff are super friendly and welcoming, plus the hostel itself is really cool: there is a huge chill out area, a well-equipped kitchen and the rooms are clean. I definitely recommend it for a stay in Belfast!

    Fantastic staff very welcoming and friendly felt like a real family atmosphere. The only thing was it was absolutely freezing 🥶 no heating at all (November). I had two quilts on at night as well as pjs a jumper and leggings! During the day had to keep coat on as was colder inside than outside!!!! If it was heated it would have a perfect 10 Saying that I would definitely stay again would just wait for some warmer weather first 🥴

    There isn’t much to do in Belfast and there aren’t that much hostels there either so this is probably by far the best one to stay at. It’s a decent place for a day (Belfast isn’t worth visiting), with the opportunity to meet a lot of backpackers. Although it’s not the cleanest hostel, the staff were absolutely lovely and amazing so that made it more worth it.
