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!

I stayed with Steve & Kylie for two months and had a terrific time. You never know what to expect when you pick a hostel - some are a bunch of Ikea bunk beds thrown into one giant room and a less than interesting automated welcome, others are more personalised, small, cosy, somewhere you'd actually want to spend some time...

I stayed two nights in this hostel in a mixed dorm, 5beds, the room was pretty large! No closet for the luggages but a locker for your valuable belongings. The bed was perfect, no noisy and clean! The breakfast is minimum but perfect, with a large choice of jam! The guy at the front desk was very welcoming and show... More

The hostel was clean, well equipped, a nice space to socialize in and had friendly & helpful staff. We also took the walking tour of Derry. Ruairi the tour guide collects you from the hostel and shows you a very interesting aspect of the city from a locals point of view. I'd well recommend it!
