Welcome to one of Ireland's best backpackers hostels.

Our hostel is suitable for backpackers, travellers or anyone who is travel minded. We welcome people of all ages. We have only 24 beds and this helps make the atmosphere very friendly and we hope, special.

PLEASE NOTE LATEST CHECK IN TIME IS 9PM. LARGEST GROUP BOOKING IS 5 PEOPLE.

We aim to make your stay as comfortable and relaxing as possible.

We offer lots of little extras to try and entice you to stay longer with us. eg Our FREE breakfast goes way above the standard hostel breakfast. Here you will get eggs , yoghurt, fruit juice as well as the normal tea, coffee , cereals etc.

Our kitchen is probably one of the best that you will see on your trip. It has a fine old oak table and chairs and a classic double oven stove. It is open 24 hours and we supply lots of spices and oil and well as unlimited free tea, coffee and milk.

The biggest dorm size is 5 people. More chance of an uninterupted sleep. We also have a twin, triple and double room, as well as an all female dorm.

Our movie room has a collection has over 400 movies. Our travel library has lots of travel books as well as many Irish classics. Our little library is a great place to while away your time or plan the rest of your trip. We also have a book swap.

We have the best possible FREE WIFI, as well as a computer for everyone to use.

Political walking tours of the Bogside leave from the hostel every day at 10am. Cost is 4 pounds and after the tour , you can get discounted entry to the Museum of Free Derry.

We have decorated our hostel with travel souveniers from all over the world from our very own extensive travels. Exotic would be a good description for the decor.

We have GREAT LOCATION, being only 5 minutes walk from the Bogside murals and historic city walls.

We offer a laundry service cost 5 pounds to wash and dry a load. Towels can be hired for 1 pound.

In short we hope that our hostel can give you that home from home feeling that many small hostels tend to give.

We hope to welcome you soon...

PLEASE NOTE: LATEST CHECK-IN TIME IS 9pm. This hostel is not suitable for stag/hen parties, or all male/ female groups coming to Derry at the weekends to get as drunk as possible. Please do not book these groups into the hostel as these bookings will not be honored.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The young lady running the place wasn't that bothered. Laundry area full of weeks washing, no sign of being tidied. Breakfast included which was bread made by her, which was rubbish, everything else "value" range from Tesco. Lock to room didn't work properly. Standard of beds was very poor. Shower rooms , waste blocked nad over flowed.
