    This is easily one of the best hostels I've stayed at. The actual owner was there to greet me when I arrived, the front desk people were always super helpful. Bathrooms were very clean, bed was clean, all around just an excellent place to stay.

    I had a wonderful time at Vagabonds and I would have stayed longer if the place had not been so popular (book early). The location is glorious, a few minutes walk from the botanic gardens and museum, and an easy walk to the city centre in the other direction. The best thing is that it is directly across from a beautiful cathedral which is the first thing you see when you step outside. The staff are friendly and welcoming, Bob particularly makes sure everyone feels at home. Would love to return.

    I had a great time in the Vaguabond! The first day I got in Bob helped me with figuring out what to do in the city and took us to a live Irish music bar which was great and am thankful to have that experience. Hatsuki was very helpful in helping me with questions I have and giving me assistance with booking a bus tour and the stove! Thank you, Vaguabond for making Belfast such a wonder time!

    The staff here were lovely, accommodating and know what they're doing. The only thing that let my stay down was the big group of French children staying in the rooms next door - they completely undermined the hostel atmosphere and made it difficult to relax (in communal areas as well as in my room hearing them stomp about, screaming and crying next door).
