'Central, comfortable and as friendly as they come' according to Lonely Planet. #1 rated on TripAdvisor & Rick Steves!

'Cead Mile Failte' which means '100,000 welcomes' to our award-winning Hostel which is top-rated by guidebooks and ideally situated in our historic city-centre.

We organise group meals EVERY night, 365 nights of the year at 7pm.

Staff & guests gather around our and-made Irish Oak dining table and do the one thing that most backpackers dont do enough of anymore - enjoy a tasty meal with new international friends.

Save Money, Have Fun, Yum-Yum...

'Clean, Safe, Central & Full of history & local culture'. Owned and managed by travellers, we designed this hostel to make you feel at home and to provide you with the best stay in one of the most historic cities in Europe.

'Derry Palace' Hostel is within walking distance of pretty much everything you need and has a great location for enjoying our historic walled-city, being only 5/10 minutes walk from the Bus Station, 1 minute from the supermarket and right round the corner from the action in the best musical pubs, coffee shops, political murals & museums.

For 10 great years, Derry-born Tour-Guide Steve McPhilemy and his travel-loving team have provided a 'LegenDerry' welcome. We have even become a wee bit famous throughout Northern Ireland, featuring on National TV last year as the fun & quality accommodation located in the centre of Derry.

Our lovely hostel is in a beautiful georgian townhouse that was built in 1832. We invite our fellow travellers to relax and enjoy a film in the TV/DVD room or read a book from our extensive Travel-Library in front of our cosy fireplace. We burn peat or turf, the traditional Irish fuel. It fills the room with sweet aroma of the countryside. Very few hostels carry on this welcoming tradition.

We recently fully renovated our property with new electric showers (they are warm 24//7 guaranteed) & a nice modern kitchen. We also carefully restored the most popular feature of our hostel - the glorious 'common room', which boasts a grand piano and the most comfortable sofas in the country! A perfect chill-out zone for individuals & groups.

We take great pride in ensuring our guests have an excellent experience.

Our features include individual lockers, towels, linen and duvets, free coffee and tea all day,

To enhance your journey we offer free maps and advice and free access to guide books from across the world. There's also free luggage storage.

Free internet & wifi, free yummy breakfast, free parking, free bicycles, free piano, guitar & musical instruments

Our top 5 qualities

1. Owned by a derry-born tour-guide who loves to share his passion of local history

2. Comfortable, clean beds (many rooms ensuite), warm electric showers with super-fast wifi internet.

3. Safe & secure location (we are across the street from the police station and provide security lockers for guests)

4. Laundry facilities available for guests who need to wash some clothes

5. Heated & covered outdoor courtyard for bbq's & outdoor dining on summer evenings and cosy cuddle-ups on chilly winter nights.

Lonely planet rate us very positively and we are the only hostel in derry recommended by us travel guru rick steves. Also recommended by 'guide du routard', 'lets go' & 'rough guide'; and we are proudly top-rated on tripadvisor.com

well were do i start and believe me this isnt going to be pretty..
i head of one sunday shopping with my friend and decide to stay, so paddys palace was recommended to us.
i dont know were they got the palace out of because it was far from it.the room wasnt even in the building it was on up the street and the toilets which were shared didnt work, there was no carpets on the floors and it stank and the bedroom door wasnt secure..SO we ask for our money back and they tell us they will upgrade us for the same rate.we get to our room ok its a little better but it stank aswel, pulled the covers from the bed to find no sheet,mattress protectors that was full of stains.we stayed the night but NEVER again would i be back i couldnt wait to get home and get washed after staying in that place...only good thing about it was it was walking distance from the bars...its true what they say u pay for what u get..DONT STAY THERE YOU WILL HATE IT!!!!
