Loved the place! The rooms were super clean and bathrooms were shining to the point you did not need mirror, floors would work just fine. Just exaggerating, but the place is super super clean. The rooms were well lit, well furnished with comfortable beds, sufficient individual space and perfect side lamp and tall mirror. The heating worked just fine and we had a pleasant stay. Amazing common room with a collection of musical instruments (guitars, ukulele, etc.), books, Netflix and vintage wood burning stove which was my muse during the stay.
The staff was super helpful and amazing, not at all stubborn about breakfast timings and just very accommodating.
Definitely, I highly recommend this place as it is quite close to the City Center, so you can just choose to be touristy or just lay back and chill on their couches.

Hostel is cozy and well located, close to pubs, restaurants and approx 15 min walk from bus terminal and city center.

The staff I met was very friendly and helpful. They also organised some evening activities.

I didn't have time for breakfast, but it seemed to be what you expect from a hostel.

12 bed dorm was kinda full packed, but it didn't really bother me, cuz I only slept there. Shower/bathroom was almost brand new.

I have been invited to join the guests' drinking game and pub live music outing when I just arrived, which was quite welcoming. The next day Bob cooked us some lovely delicious pasta for dinner, for everyone! The hostel's breakfast includes a nice selection of cereals and bread toppings. Yet, the facilities are quite old and there are 12ish people staying in one room. So if u r nit an easy sleeper, it is going to be a bit rough. Overall, vagabond is a lovely and safe hostel, I enjoyed my stay there!

Not far from the center and the main sites. Also, nicely located close to restaurants and pubs. Breakfast is what you expect from a hostel (not fancy but enough). Good facilities (kitchen and bathrooms). Rooms could have a bit more space (where to hang coats), or some chairs.

1st time in Belfast & at Vagabonds but no where near our first hostel stay. This place has character and charm to boot. The staff we met are lovely and a big shout out goes to Bob & Izzy who really made our visit fun & comfortable.

Every traveller is looking for something different in a hostel. From a one night sleep over to a base of operations Vagabonds is ideal for all.

As with any experience in life you get out of it what you put in.

Until next time Vagabonds, keep on keeping it real!

I'm pretty shocked to read this, to be honest. I was 37 at the time that I booked. I also am a visible minority (Hispanic) and I was never told to go away or threatened and I showed up without a booking and got two nights... More
