  • We had a great stay at Vagabonds in Belfast. There is pretty high security as you have to key in to the front door and then again to get into your room. Everything was very clean and orderly. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The outdoor space in the back is definitely a unique highlight of this hostel - there are ping pong and pool (billiards) tables, picnic benches, and a grill. A bunch of us pre-gamed in the back before going on a pub crawl and had a blast. Would stay again!

  • Vagabonds is a MUST!! The location and facilities alone are really top notch in Belfast -- I've stayed in quite a few in the city, but I know where I will be next time. Add with that the AMAZING STAFF and atmosphere, and you've got a recipe for a great time. The people there are super inclusive and really help to bring everyone together -- whether at mealtimes, loungeing or heading out on the town. It really had everything I look for in a hostel and more than exceeded my expectations. Cheers!

  • The Hostel is amazing I had a great time there! It's the perfect place to meet and hang out with people. Also the walls are really well insonorated, we we're partying in a room and never realised there was another party going on outside! The place is very big and pretty, and we even had someone to cook dinner for us!
