We came here and stayed in the twin room on the top floor. It was nice that it had two separate beds instead of bunkbeds. The kitchen and bathrooms are newer and in very clean condition. There was great wireless reception even in the top floor, and a large TV on the main floor for entertainment. The hosts are incredibly friendly and helpful!

Room Tip: Real beds (not bunkbeds) in top floor twin room!

I brought a group of students from America here. From the word go it was GREAT! Couple who owned it were fantastic. Students could cook till 10pm. they could make their own breakfast, watch TV, free wireless, clean rooms and bathrooms. Very convenient to the city also. Will definitely stay there again. If I ever bring students back, this is the place we will stay!

Bedrooms were comfortable and clean; the living room area made it comfortable for chatting and so on; 2 showers. The owners are lovely people, very kind and great to talk with. You can walk down to the Diamond in 15 minutes or so - it was very convenient. I'd be happy to come back again, with my family next time.

Room Tip: A couple of rooms have bunk beds bathrooms are on the second floor

It's a lovely hostel, very near the city centre, with beautiful rooms and a big kitchen you can use to prepare your own meals. It's run by Stefka and her daughter Karen who are lovely hosts ready to help you in any problem you may have. The house is big, clean and with new bathrooms and showers. There are lots of guests from all over the world with whom it's easy to have a lovely chat. It's a good value for money and one of the best in Derry. It's appropiate for people that travel on his own or groups as there are different types of rooms.I've been there twice and will be there agian if I travel to Derry in the future. I value the hospitality of the owners and the beauty and calmess of the house. You can't miss it if you go to Derry!!!

Room Tip: Double and single rooms are the best for their privacy and and more much expensive than the dorms!!
