Hostelworld says

Lagan Backpackers is set within walking distance of most of the city’s main sights like City Hall and Queen’s University. This clean, friendly hostel offers a free, hot English breakfast as well as ‘a dinner BBQ that\'s cheap and a good way to socialize with the guests’, according to Hostelworld visitors. Their friendly, attentive and informative staff can also help to arrange tours. We like their projector screen in the common area, a great way to watch movies.

Run down but bedding was clean. Kitchen ruined by guests who leave mess and dishes, this is a constant problem there, it was not staff fault, but adequate. Breakfast incl. egg, toast, instant coffee or tea, milk .. Staff try. ... Adequate hot water, clean showers and shared WCs.

I ended up moving beds because some guy used mine the very first night I got there, the staff was great and helped me though because of this. But the rest of the weekend there was inconsiderate guests, who came into the shared dorm at 1 am and turned on the light and talked and laughed, most of the showers and bathrooms were out of use and dirty, and a group of people who were volunteering there and lived for free, and they took over the entire hostel. Oh and no breakfast.

The hostel was really dirty and half of the toilets and showers were broken and unusable... The kitchen was closed in the morning although the hostel was promising free breakfast.... We were really disappointed in total!
