Decent hostel. Beds are comfy and spacious, the rooms are the same. Breakfast in the morning is pretty good. Nothing I could honestly complain about here.

Lovely small hostel with plenty of character and friendly and helpful staff, the breakfast was good with a decent selection considering it was free. The walking tour in the morning was great too - I liked that it was very relaxed and the guide was willing to chat and share his personal experiences. I'm sure there are other tours that offer more historical facts at every brick you walk by but this tour suited us and matched the laid back friendlyness of the hostel too.

Great location and great stay. You can easily access every places in the city by foot. The staff is most welcoming, nice and helpful. The rooms are quite big, and really quiet and there was nothing to say about the cleanliness - the shower is just huge! Nice kitchen for cooking and living room. Oh, and I just loved the homemade bread for breakfast :) !

This is a fine small hostel in the centre of Derry. I enjoyed my stay. There was not much happening in the hostel though and the showers were definitely amongst the worst that I have encountered in all of Ireland (hardly any water pressure at all). I met people to explore the Derry nightlife with on most nights (thank you, Pete and Marie!)

One of the bathrooms was bad, the shower didn't work, a button was missing, the button for the toilet was also missing, and on top of that, the handle for the tapwater was also missing!

The woman who runs the hostel was the most helpful and friendly person I've met running a hostel - and I've met some helpful people. The location is pretty close to the city walls and the bus station. I took a taxi from the train station, which was only a few pounds. It has a very home-y feel and the breakfast was great! I want to come back to Derry - I don't think I had enough time - and would definitely consider staying here again.

This was my favorite hostel I stayed in while travelling around Europe for months. It felt like a home and was so cozy. The staff were wonderful and I got to enjoy a lovely hot bath in the great big bath tub. So stay here if you can, you won't regret it!

Seriously the coolest hostel I've stayed in. The owner is incredibly nice and always up for a chat about the places she's been (quite an impressive track record) and has plenty of great tips about Derry. The hostel has a great homey feel to it with plenty of artefacts from around the world, travel books galore and a decent sized kitchen. I highly recommend the hostel to anyone travelling to Derry.
