Staff were very friendly and welcoming - Mariano is a great host. It was like a home from home, very relaxing visit. On the down side, there only seems to be one shower in the hostel, although the second bathroom has a bath.

Friendly staff, particularly Mariano. A quiet neighborhood, comfortable bed, good night’s sleep each night. Very homey feel to this place. Nice breakfast. Lounges on ground floor and near back garden area. Small ensuite programmable-lock lockers. A minor need for improvement: my earlier reservation indicated I could pay for my room with a credit card. But I was informed that only... More

The fact that this is a small-sized hostel located in a small city really makes the difference with other hostels. I couldn't find the same experience in Belfast, for example. The rooms have maximum 5 beds, and are quite cosy, which helps feel that you are actually sharing a room with real people. I frankly felt at home in this... More

Service was absolute wonderful and very helpful. You immediately know what you can expect and how everything works. The room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Despite the fact that you had to share a bathroom, it was very clean and up to par. I thought the location was ideal, not completely in the city centre, but just... More

The vibe of the place is so relaxed and tranquil that I felt like I was in a home. The bathrooms are some of the best in Derry. I guess I need to fill this out more. If you stay here you will have multiple O's from the breakfest.

Nice management, very informative about Derry. Room was nice. Bath was clean. Free tea and coffee in the kitchen. Placed in the middle of Derry, close to the murials and the walled city. Close to the train station and bus station.

A small, low key, tranquil vibe of a place. Mature, clean, friendly. Stylish and high quality decor. Fabulous value for money. Very central. Great comfort and feels like 'home from home'. Chilled. Wonderful breakfast included. Gorgeous kitchen and garden. Exquisite service. Ten out of ten. A treat.

I just loved this lovely little hostel! Very comfy and welcoming. Clean and cute! I liked the kitchen a lot. On a small quiet street. I would definitely go there if I went back in Derry! It's close to everything and staff is helpful! Highly recommended!
