First time in Derry for Halloween, amazing!!!! 4 of us arrived on Friday evening, and were greeted by the Hostel Halloween Themed party, free Punch, finger food and treats. Free breakfast, WiFi, computer use, comfy beds, good showers and bathrooms. Brilliant Hostel all round, will definitely be back!

About 10 to 15 mins walk from the city walls/bus station. Bed was superb clean and staff (Madison, I think) was very friendly. However, lacked of lockers.

Self-served breakfast is fun. You can meet different people from different countries around breakfast table. But only three bathrooms in this hostel, so always waited for others to come out.

Excellent hostel! Steve the owner is great, super friendly & helpful. Wifi works well throughout the entire building. Hostel is in a good location, just 10 mins walk from most of the pubs etc. Breakfast is great, with selection of cereals, eggs, and even freshly made bread! There's also a movie room with heaps of movies. Great place to chill out, with plenty of bars just down the street. Will definitely stay here again when back in Derry!

Great home like atmosphere. The bed was really comfortable, clean and reasonably priced as well. Oh and the locker in the room was really useful as well. Steve was really lovely and welcoming. Lovely breakfast including yogurts, eggs, orange juice and Steve's homemade bread every morning. I stayed there for 4 days and it was the best hostel experience ever!!! Thank you very much and yes! I will be coming back. Definitely recommended. :)

I really enjoyed my stay here! Steve and Kylie were very friendly and welcoming. They took time to show me a local map highlighting all the best spots to see. The accommodation was very clean, comfortable and had a lovely, warm homely atmosphere. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone visiting Derry.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at! From the warm welcome to the wonderful decorations that the owners collected on their own travels around the world. The cosy India-room is great for socializing. The free wifi and free breakfast were a nice bonus. The dorm is spacious, clean and comfortable. I definitely recommend staying here if you come to Derry! Love the social atmosphere, and the pub that was recommended was excellent!
