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!

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.
