"Relaxed atmosphere, and the staff went out of their way to be friendly, helpful and accommodate my needs. I am 49 so much older than the majority of guests, and have health issues. I was made to feel…"

Michael Bonvalot

22 August 2009 Michael would recommend this property

Liked: 10 min. walk outside the center, which can be enerving, cause the busses don´t travel that often. Friendly staff (sometimes to friendly, when they very strongly recommend something and strictly rule out all other options). Only big problem: just two combinend shower/toilets for the house, which means, that you have to go up to two floors downstairs for the toilet, if you are in one of the doubles in the upper floors (and than you have to wait cause somebody takes a shower).

Liked: The owner of the hostel was extremly helpful. He tells you all of the things you should do and not do, where things are, things to see, etc. .He even sets up tours for you and tells you which ones are the best. He was very friendly and made sure our stay in Belfast was good. We even were invited to a BBQ that him and some friends were having and they cooked for us and we had drinks with them...it was super fun and we enjoyed hanging out with them. Good place to stay for your money...

Roxana Albusel

02 July 2009 Roxana would recommend this property

Liked: Lagan hostel is simple, but very clean and comfortable. William and Melissa add a personal touch to it as they are incredibly friendly and helpful. The recommendations they give for what to see in Belfast are great, as they help you avoid the "tourist traps" and let you focus on the more interesting things. The black-cab tour they recommend is amazing, as is the Causeway tour (which you get for a very decent price). I would definitely prefer to stay in a place like this than a large hostel where they treat you as just another guest. The barbecue they hosted one of the nights was also great :-)

Emily Varone

15 June 2009

Liked: Our stay was marred a bit by some very loud people coming back from the pub in the early hours and arguing very loudly - sound travels through this place, don't forget your earplugs. All very basic, lacking character - if you just want a bed for the night it's ok. The location was good and the manager, William, was great - very helpful.

Liked: it's a cool place to stay! we got very warm welcome from the owner on arrival and plenty practical info about the city. the hostel is clean and tidy, the beds are super confortable to relax.
