Vagabonds backpackers hostel

Travelers will find in Vagabonds a proper travelers' home. A resting spot from the hikings, sailings or ridings of their lives. A cozy home were to chill under a blanket in front of the fire or sharing a glass with fellow ramblers. Watch movies, talk of everything and nothing and get ready for a Irish pub at night! Other than that we organize meals together, we party together.. And you always have enough free time to follow your projects.

The staff here is a big enlarged family. A lot of former volunteers live now in Belfast on their own but they still come visit the nest; some of them jumping back from the other side of the world just to pop in for one. On the job we help each other out and we are always flexible with shifts and chores. The job is 1,5 - 2 hours cleaning the hostel everyday, plus 1 afternoon shift and 1 breakfast shift per week where you are in charge of the reception. Totally 23-28 hours per week most of which you will spend on the couch chatting and laughing.

it has been my first worldpackers experience and I couldn't think of a better one. Bob, Richard and the rest of the staff were wonderful and patient in regards to the job and they all know how to have a great time. Since the first day I felt welcomed and part of the grup😄!

I had a good experience at the hostel, especially due to the people I met. Our team of volunteers was great, and I made true friends. There were a lot of places to party in the city. The work was also easy, as you do it all together. The house is cozy, but it is rather old, so some areas could need some more maintenance. Also, it would be great to at least have one day off per week to explore the area more.

Vagabonds has a very homely and welcoming feel. The location is perfect and there are many nice things to do around Belfast. Also, working with the staff was a lovely experience.
Despite this, having no scheduled days off made it hard to visit different places around the island.
Thanks to Bob, Richard and all the staff members for this experience!

Vagabonds is excellent! I started rather quickly after leaving another experience and everyone was very accommodating. The work is simple and keeps you on a good schedule. You'll have plenty of time to explore the city and surrounding areas. I met the best people there through other volunteers, and guests staying at the hostel. Your time will fly by here!
