Vagabonds Belfast is an urban travellers hostel designed by two experienced travellers for like minded people.

Our Story

Tara and Curt have toured the globe and have witnessed first hand the best and worst hostel accommodation the world has to offer. Our manifesto is simple, to provide a clean, relaxed and affordable environment for those paying a brief visit to our honest city.

Situated in the Queens Quarter just 5 minutes from the city centre, Museums, Train/Bus Station and the city’s best bars and cafes, we consider ourselves to have one of the best locations for travellers.

“Just came back from a great weekend in this hostel. Awesome atmosphere and lovely staff. Rooms and bathrooms were nice as well. Would strongly recommend staying there when you’re planning to go to the amazing city of Belfast! Definitely going back someday!.”
“A lovely hostel (big living room to chill, with a tv, a big table to eat all together, a pretty cool kitchen, basic but very clean rooms), a very nice and helpful staff (ask them anything), great location and activities – just book here.”
