Liked: Very central location, friendly staff, very cheap to stay and free breakfast was a nice touch and unexpected for a hostel. Just a note to other travellers, the hostel description says "cash only" but they do in fact have credit and debit card facilities (I guess the description hasn't been updated in a while).

Disliked: The keypad for opening the front door and the room is a bit finnicky to begin with but you get used to it.

Liked: Had a great time. Linda, max and all the other staff are extremely nice, easy going people that im glad i had the opportunity to meet. Top hostel, with a cosy atmosphere and as good value for money as you"ll get in ireland. A true backpackers haven, loved the location too. Thanks for the great breakfast. Would recommend you stay here and would come back myself. Also checkout clements cafe nearby and the beautiful contemporary irish art in ulster museum. Best of luck to you lagan, keep it crafty

Liked: Lagans is a great place to stay, especially if you want to socialize with other guests. The staff are really helpful and friendly. I loved that they provide a nice hot brekky and the option of having a cheap dinner with other guests. Would highly recommend staying here.

Disliked: I wish we could've stayed here longer, they book out easily.

Liked: Loved the awesome free breakfast and cheap suppers, good atmosphere, really friendly staff. Super specials and discounts depending on how long you stay. They have own Giant's Causeway tour and pub crawl, but also help you organise other activities.

Disliked: Wifi can be slow during peak times and one has to queue mornings for bathrooms, rest of day fine for both.

Liked: -The staff is wonderful, they're incredibly welcoming and helpful. -They make you breakfast in the morning, and it's delicious! Free coffee and tea all day as well. -You can get in on a group dinner for only £1.50, and that's on most nights. -The staff will arrange for black taxi tours, and they'll point out the best places to go in the city. -Luggage storage is free, next to the front desk so you know that it's safe. -They have deals based on how many nights you stay, which are great if you plan to be in Belfast for a few nights and you want to hit up the Giant's Causeway, etc. -Lots of opportunities to meet people.

Disliked: -The location is a little sketchy, bring a friend. -The beds are super close together, so it's a bit crowded. -Everything is really loud and squeaky (doors, lockers, floors) so it's easy to wake people up/ be woken up. -I had a hell of a time with the keypads to get into the buildings and rooms. They're a bit persnickety.

Liked: Free hot breakfast is a positive point, toillets and showers were always very clean. Location is within a walking distance from the city center and very close to the university.

Disliked: Big mess with the bookings, everyday there was some moving to a different room because staff forgot to mention that the room was overbooked. Wi-Fi doesn't work very good, you need some luck to get a connection. Some lockers are riddiculous small, and a medium size bag won't fit.
