Liked: Lagan's is a great hostel! All of the staff are very friendly and do everything they can to make you feel comfortable and enjoy your stay. They offer a free hot break-fast which is prepared for you and also offer dinner ever night for a very cheap price. The staff provide you with a map of Belfast when you arrive and circle the places that are worth visiting in the city. They also book day trips that pick you up from the hostel - e.g. Giant's Causeway. I highly recommend this hostel and would definitely stay in it again if I come back to Belfast.

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: Lagan Backpackers Is not the nicest place to stay in Belfast but the people there are what make it an amazing place to stay. The staff are mostly all volunteers and are so nice and friendly. They are more than willing to show you around and even take you out for a couple of Pints.One of the nicer features was that the beds are really comfy and have a screen that gives you a bit more privacy.

Disliked: There were limited bathrooms so some times you will have to wait. Everything else was nice.

Liked: This is by far the friendliest hostel I've ever stayed at. The staff, or at least a part of the staff are backpackers also who are staying long term, and they're all hilarious! The rooms are comfortable, and the curtains add privacy for night time.

Liked: It was within walking distance to the kingspan stadium and the city centre

Disliked: It was rather small/tight. Everywhere was clean but could do with some investment into the decor ☺

Liked: The beds, each had their own curtains (luxurious). You can have your own privacy!

Disliked: Water in the showers had no pressure (so it took longer to shower, but one can live with that)

Liked: Love the free hot breakfast in the mornings and cheap dinners at night. Also great that we could book tours and get picked up for them right from the hostel. Also, a small feature but really great, was the little curtains on each bunk.

Disliked: The showers were pretty atrocious. They were always dirty and the shower head wasn't great (weak stream of water). The shower drain was always clogged and so I was pretty much standing in a little pool of water. Sinks were pretty dirty too.
