    I had the best time staying at this hostel. It was easy to meet, all the staff were very friendly. They went out of their way to include people/encourage guests to interact and took us to a great place for live music and dancing.

    Very cosy and chill place to meet new people. Staffs were very friendly and helpful. Facilities were great. There were 2 showers and three toilets in my 14 beds room. Never had to wait for anything.

    Loved this place! Such a social hostel in a fantastic location. Staff was lovely, both friendly and helpful, and the way the public areas are set up makes for a very social experience. Room were tidy and facilities were clean. Would absolutely stay again, and without a doubt would recommend it to anyone visiting Belfast!

    The Vagabonds is definitely a great hostel. The staff are all lovely, the place is pretty damn clean, the beds are well... they’re beds! and the lounge area is a great place to meet people! The kitchen is great with actual GAS burners as well as oil to use. The hostel is able to set up some great day tours as well, which is an added bonus! Definitely stay here if you’re in the area because you’ll most definitely have a great time!

    The staff was excellent. Upon arrival they gave a tour of the place and was very welcoming. They encouraged spending time in the chill out space and gave a lot of good advice and even helped me seek medical treatment for an ear infection I had. Bed was extremely comfortable. My biggest complaint was that the hot water wasn’t available between 11am/pm-6pm/am. Above all, it’s obvious that a lot of love has gone into this place.

    For small hostel, it had surprisingly good facilities and its decor/furniture made it feel more home-y. About 15 minute walk from bus/train station (note: the Vagabonds sign on the outside of the building is very small/easy to miss). The three young men looking after reception during my multi-day stay were all very gracious, kind.

    Great hostel and staff, warm and welcoming common room where it’s easy to meet fellow travellers. It was pretty quiet when I stayed but I still met some great people. Would return in the future.

    Very Good

    This is in the heart of a college town. Almost our whole room went out and stayed out late, coming in late. It seemed very click-y to us. We were hoping to have more of a social group but everyone was to themselves. The facility was cool but the I could hardly understand the gal that showed us around. She gave us our room key, showed us around, and pointed up the stairs. So we went upstairs and couldn't find our room number. Went and asked her and she pointed to a room downstairs down a hallway.

    Staff weren’t very warm or welcoming. Didn’t really know the area outside their front door.
