I was so sick when I arrived in Belfast. I had defied doctor's orders the day before and gone to the Cliffs of Moher earlier that morning. Needless to say I ended up in bed with the shakes the following day and could honestly say that I couldn't have been in a better place. The night I arrived they waited...

Location was good, staff friendly and helpful, clean bed and rooms, clean bathrooms and showers. Nice hangout area when not out exploring or sleeping and a good view of an old-ish church across the street.

I recently stayed here for three nights and would highly recommend this hostel. The location is great; close to convinience shops, pubs and a short walk to the city centre. Upon arrival the staff are all extremely friendly and very able to offer advice on what to do whilst in Belfast. The hostel is tidy and spacious and the communal...

Vagabonds was a great hostel. Clean, decent beds, ample locker space. They had a night outdoor terrace area. The breakfast was great. It is a party hostel though, every night there was people going out. So some noise during the nights because of this. The staff cooked meals some nights which was very delicious! Though the kitchen is a bit...

Best buy for the price. Everyone was very helpful and friendly (guests and hosts alike). Easy to get to bars, bus stops, etc. There is a free breakfast available. The hosts plan things to make guests nights more enjoyable (family style meals, dancing, etc). Highly recommend.

We came here after a bad experience in Dublin, and the difference was like night and day. For the price of a hostel we were as comfortable as we would have been in a hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful, there were great communal areas along with a hearty breakfast. The hostel is in a great location just opposite...

Before arriving I asked if they could get some raspberries for our arrival. The staff were so keen to help they made be feel like it was me helping them out! The raspberries were there when we arrived which made my girlfriend's day. It was comfortable, the wifi was great, the location perfect.

Where do I start.. We arrived an hour late due to our flight being delayed and were greeted by a lovely man called Bob, he assured us it wasn't a bother and made us feel welcomed immediately. We were shown to our rooms, very clean and comfortable. We felt like family instantly. The team were amazing, especially Richard who checked...

Vagabonds was a great place to stay. The location is decent, a 10 minute walk to the main bus station and around 15min to the centre of town. The rooms, toilets and, kitchen were all clean and staff were really friendly. It's definitely an awesome place if you want to meet people but can get really loud if you need...

So nice people that makes you feel comfortable and are really open to help you in everything you need. Common rooms are amazing, kitchen good, rooms small but for sleeping enough. I've been in mixed 8-bed room and can' t complain. Only more toilets would be nice ;)
