Hostelworld says

Vagabonds is located just next to Queen’s University, the Botanic Gardens and Ulster Museum and is an easy 15-minute walk to the rest of the city centre. This quirky, friendly and comfortable hostel ‘looks like Alice in Wonderland went shopping in IKEA to furnish an old boarding school’, according to Hostelworld guests, many of whom say they’d ‘definitely’ stay at this clean and safe hostel again. Visitors also tell us the highly rated staff ‘are so friendly, helpful and always up for the banter’. We like that there’s a BBQ for good weather and a wood-burning stove for rainy days.
