This hostel was very homey, comfortable and clean. I enjoyed my time here, very much. The guy in charge, I forget his name, was very nice and made us feel welcome. Great hostel! Highly recommend it!
Lockers could be bigger. And it was tough to find the hostel. Maybe a larger sign would be helpful for travelers.
Nice tiny hostel, very intimate and friendly - both staff and guests.
Had a really nice stay with cool people and nice chats. Loved the bathrooms, the breakfast and especially the walking Tour with Bill!
The sign on the front door was a bit obscure. It would be nice if the name of the hostel was shown. But the breakfast was lovely. And the staff were so friendly and accommodating. It was so pleasant chatting with Mariano, and he was quite nice to look at too. Thanks for the great experience.
Very close to bus and Giants Causeway. Great view from the sun room. Everything about the hostel is great (if you're tall the sloping ceilings mighy give you trouble), but even so its a bit overpriced even taking that into account.
A nice stay. Friendly, helpful staff. Generous breakfast.
Mariano was very kind and informative to us. The location is excellent and facilities are clean. I would definitely recommend staying here!
Decent place! Small but cozy. Great breakfast with eggs and homemade bread. Good location as well. Would recommend!
Excellent. I have stayed in many hostels but nine unlike Derry independent. The front guy was sweet and always helpful. Thank you for making derry awesome.
After a fair while on the road and having mostly stayed in bigger hostels it was such a relief to come somewhere that felt more homely. The staff were fantastic- Mariano even went so far as to save me some of the fresh baked bread from breakfast when I overslept (easy to do as the bed was very comfortable). Also there was nothing nicer than being able to come home to a bath after a long, stormy day out at Giant's Causeway. A great hostel to recharge and make some new friends along the way!
Staff lovely & welcoming, great breakfast and best value for money. About 5 minute walk from city centre too which is brilliant. Will definitely be back
