The worst place i have ever stayed. I've stayed in hostels all over the world. These guys are so rude it's unbelievable. As soon as we walked into the hostel we were called scum by the staff at reception and the next day we tried to have a conversation in the common area and got shouted at by a couple...

I did a one day stay here and it was a great experience. The staff were super helpful in every possible way. Free Breakfast friendly location and good staff, no constraint on timing you can return back to your room late night.

Between the clean facilities, free breakfast, friendly staff, and good location, this is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The crew is an eclectic, diverse group who do their best to make you feel like you're in a home, not a hostel. I encourage any and all to stay here!

Spent my last few days of 2016 there and I couldn't be more pleased with my decision, particularly as I was travelling solo. Great atmosphere, perfect location and everyone you meet there (from the staff to fellow travellers) are extremely sociable. Had a brilliant new years eve with everyone I met there! You know who you are! Have a great...

I did a three day stay here and it was a great experience. The staff were super helpful in every possible way. The location is a short walk to the center of the city and everything you need is super close. Will definitely be staying here again on my next trip to Belfast.

My friend and I stayed in the Vagabonds hostel in November 2015 (not the best time to travel in Northern Ireland / Ireland - very rainy) and we loved our stay here. The hostel is unique, quirky, and has a lovely and cosy athmosphere. Everything is colored and cosy, you feel at home at once! The bathrooms and all other...

We have been in this hostel for a night, it was very nice! lovely atmosphere with young people from all over the world. However, it was a very relaxing and not cahotic place, very nice music in the common area during breafast in the morning. Perfect position for night pubs and city center. Will absolutely go back there when needed!

Great Hostel, staff are very friendly and helpful. They told us where all the good hearty places to eat we're and the decent night life places and where to watch the rugby 👍 The hostel itself was well maintained and rooms and bathrooms we're cleaned everyday. I thought the showers we're real good quality for a hostel, stayed on hot...

This is a very clean and tastefully designed hostel, in a vibrant area of Belfast with a strong welcoming feeling; only enhanced by the knowledgeable and personable staff. It was clear the owners had stayed in a few hostels in their time - the rooms were spacious and the facilities (including numerous showers/bathrooms) well planned. Additionally there were great communal...
