This hostel is in a great location and the staff are nice and friendly especially Bob. The rooms are fine and clean but Iv never seen worse mattresses. They are almost not there. if you pay almost €20 a night you should be getting a decent bed. Please consider changing this management as your hostel would be worth much more...

Stayed in Vagabonds last Monday and Wednesday - had to arrive really late at night and leave really early in the morning. Staff were so friendly and accommodating for this. Room was just as expected and very clean, as were the bathrooms. Would love to go back and spend more time because there seems to be cool hangout areas and...

Good location, clean and tidy, good value for money and interesting guests + staff! I will definitely go back if I need a hostel in Belfast!! I am from Northern Ireland and most of the staff weren't from NI which I thought was great !!

It was definitely one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Loved everything-great location,really helpful staff, clean rooms and better bathrooms than mine at home. It's obvious that they can't be spotless at every hour of the day but they're cleaned regularly and generally in good condition. I'll definitely come back and I definitely recommend staying there!

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...
