I stayed in this hostel just one night with lads from Cork. Staff welcomed us nicely, the place is really cosy and pleasant. The shared room, even if ten people were sleeping there was huge! Really close to the lovely town, nobody complained about there even if the carpets rooms inspired us for a music sessions with guitars and choirs!... More

I've stayed in a lot of hostels all over Europe and this was the worst experience I ever had. I stayed on a Friday night solo as I'd been at an event that was continuing the next day. When I arrived the staff had no record of my booking despite having received an email confirmation and spoken to staff on... More

This hostel was quite small and as a result it was really easy to meet new people in the kitchens and common rooms. The staff were exceptionally friendly as well. The only fault I can give the hostel is the cleanliness. I never felt as if the common rooms or dorm rooms were kept as clean and tidy as they... More

great great location, quiet clean rooms and a staff that is the best. Kitchen and living room area so very cozy, everyone really helpful and proud of the city of Derry. This was my very first hostel, & they have made a believer out of me. Don't miss the chance to visit this wonderful city and this great place!

Had an amazing stay here. The staff are friendly, helpful and can recommend some great things to do in the city. The location is perfect, the rooms are great and the kitchen is clean and well set up. I also suggest joining in the Derry pub crawl that these guys run.
