Went for a weekend to Belfast and had the most wonderful time. The staff were friendly and there was a sociable atmosphere. There was a really homely feel and they really encouraged all the guests to socialise and get to know each other. The breakfast was wonderful and I wish I could have stayed longer. I will be back. If...

I only stayed for two nights, I wish I could be longer there (if I return to Belfast this could be my accommodation). Is not located at the city centre but you are near bus and trains stops. The best thing I remember is the bbq dinner, a funny and cheap way to eat and enjoy a time chatting with...

I only stayed here for one night, but it was a great hostel and I would recommend it to anyone. It is close to the university, so nightlife and stores are very close. It is a short walk to the city center- no problem. The hostel was clean, a little old, but that just gives it character. The staff are...

The bathrooms are quite dirty. Rooms are just average others. The hostel is run by only helpers as I know, so no one would really keep up the quality of the environment. Location is not good at all. Every time i wnna travel to.the center, it takes me more than 20 minutes. So if you are looking for a good...

Also, the tours they offer are very entertaining and interesting, particularly the Giant's Causeway. All in all a very good choice if you're going to Belfast. Felt completely...

Lagan Backpackers in a great little hostel in Belfast. It is located closed to things but not in the very center of town so it's quiet. Walkable to lots of stuff - including the train station. The rooms are clean and the sheets and blankets are really nice. This hostel also has a great free breakfast - maybe one of...

They organize tours to other parts of Northern Ireland, the staff were very helpful. They have a bbq every evening and you can get some of that if you sign up for it - just tell them you're in - it's extremely affordable and a great chance to meet different tourists. Breakfast was amazing. Location was very good considering the...

My room at Lagan Backpackers was quite comfy but finding a vacant toilet meant climbing up and down staircases at times. The breakfast was tasty but the dining room is tiny so you had to be on the ball timewise to get a seat and then vacate asap for others who were waiting. Dinner was cancelled every night that I...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Included is a FREE English Breakfast that includes Bacon, Sausage, egg, beans and toast. Or Porridge or scrambled eggs and bacon. Please note breakfast is strictly between 8 and 10 with no exceptions. All breakfast served only with coffee or tea. Lagan Backpackers is simply a large Belfast house that has been converted into a Backpackers Hostel; and it is owned and run by a South African guy who knows what backpackers want. Our high ratings are mostly due to the great attention and recommendations that you can expect from both myself and my staff. My idea for a great hostel is very simple: to make you feel at home. To give you a comfortable bed to sleep in, to keep the noise down after eleven to ensure a peaceful sleep and to make you feel so at home that you make new friends and enjoy Belfast as much as possible. We provide advice on all tours of Northern Ireland, and will only recommend tours that we have personally experienced. We advise that our customers do not pre-book tours before visiting as we find that some tour operators overcharge and do not provide the level of customer satisfaction that we expect for our guests. In addition to this, Lagan Backpackers hostel is very friendly to single travellers, as we go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay. We are located minutes from the City Centre, the Lagan River and the picturesque Queens University campus; and mere moments away from the lively Botanic Avenue where there are many restaurants, shops, pubs and clubs for our customers to enjoy. Additionally, the Botanical Gardens that boast beautiful greenhouses and the famed Tropical Ravine is a short walk away, adjacent to the Ulster Museum. ** No groups, stag parties, hen parties or drunken weekends like Paddys day!! Please remember only for the 11,12,13,14 July I do not accept booking from people from the UK (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales..Also no American or Canadian band members). This is only for the marching season. No refunds on deposits will be given and you will be turned away on arrival. No stag or hen parties or groups without prior permission. ... more   less
