If you wanna enjoy the Belfast craig this is the best place. Easy work, lovely guests and even lovelier staff! During my two months there I grew up as a person and learnt a lot of things as I had the best experience I could ever imagine. And oh the dinners and all the party, so good.

Connor, Gonzalo, Nicolo, Karma, Quentin and all of you guys are amazing! Thanks for all :D



My first Worldpackers experience was fantastic! Lagan Backpackers is a very welcoming hostel which comes with a nice and dynamic team of volunteers from all around the world - we ate together every evening and often went out together as well. The tasks are not very difficult to do and most of the time don't take too much time, which leaves you with a good amount of time to discover the city. I had a lot of fun there and it was an amazing way travel, I would definitely recommend it!

Had a really great time at Lagan's! Everyone is super welcoming, the hostel is cozy, and you are provided with most everything you need. The work is very reasonable. Many thanks to Conor and the Lagan crew for a very memorable experience. Hope to come back and visit sometime. Cheers!



A sanctuary of good waves and good mood. I have spent an unforgettable month at Lagan, meeting lots of great people.
Gonna miss this amazing staff!




Had an awesome time at Lagan Backpackers! The atmosphere was familiar and the other volunteers were always up for exploring Belfast or simply watching a movie. Especially partying and going out with staff and guests made this experience so unique! Got many rewards, as free drinks, free entry to parties or free tours. The work was rich in variety and easy to do. Would definitely go back there!
