Brilliant hostel. I have stayed here twice in the last month and would definitely return. The hostel is spotless, welcoming and in a great location. I was travelling in a group of three but would very happily stay here alone because it was so friendly. Steven and Will were the best hosts. 100%


This place was so nice!! Had the comfiest beds and a really nice breakfast in the morning :) Was like a homely house, and the owner was really nice too! Only regret is I was only here for one night :(


A wonderful place with a fantastic atmosphere. Owner Steve was great; supplying map and detailed account of local geography. Also: curious man called Joe with fantastical moustache.


Great location


The hostel was both accommodating and very flexible in regards to our check-in time. We can't rave enough about the Dolce Vita Derry Hostel. It had a very mature hostel motif. The interior decorating and furniture were themed from countries from all over the world. In the morning the co-owners and couple even provide complimentary fresh homemade bread. Our range of breakfast options were amazing. It was more like we were staying at the home of a relative than a hostel.


Great home away from home, Kylie was a fantastic host. Enjoyed my stay there would visit again!
