You're close to the City Centre you can walk in maybe 10minutes. The staff is really nice and the wifi is working really well (compared to other hostels you have free wifi in the rooms as well and not only in the lobby)! Its also nice to have the bathroom included in the room and not in the floor (but...

Had a great stay here, close to the centre of derry and everything you need. Staff were lovely and couldn't be more helpful, you have full access to the kitchen if you want to cook and a great outside area. Thank you to Josie, Lucas, Jose, Nestor and Morgan, we will be back!

We had a great time staying here, and much better than imagined. Beds and rooms were clean and comfortable. Hot Showers, breakfast basic but ideal, with a generous selection of fresh bread, jams, butter and peanut butter - clean and fresh facilities! What made this though was the staff, Asya and Morgan were very professional, flexible and kind. We were...

The hostel is located very close to the central area, you can walk from the bus station but have it loaded in maps before hand as the info desk is the opposite direction. It's a large green building with a 'derry hostel' sign which was confusing. Rooms were warm, bathrooms clean. Staff were friendly. Pros: Bathroom in room #4 Free...

Great hostel! The staff are amazing, they're always ready to help you, and to give you the best advise. The common room is extraordinary and cosy, and you can meet people from all around the world. From the rooms till the bathrooms it's all very clean. The furnishing is very beautiful and typically irish. And then the hostel is just...

This hostel was good to stay in for just a night. Pretty friendly staff. £3 cab ride to the nearest train station. Easy walking to town. The beds were comfortable but the room itself was very cramped and small. Our room also had quite a few spider webs around it. The bathroom and showers weren't very clean. Breakfast of toast...

The hostel was average however loved the walking city tour offered there. Our tour guide, Rory really have a great insight into the history and trouble in Derry. Highly recommend anyone on the area trying to go on one of Rory's tours!

“Tell Steve if you prefer quiet or interaction and he'll set you up. Other staff tends to be temporary, so best to negotiate with Steve. Unless it's for one or two nights.”
