OUR HOSTEL

Conjured up back in 1997 by two travellers with empty pockets, loads of enthusiasm and a dream. We still grab every opportunity to throw our backpacks over our shoulders and hit the road, enjoying soaking up the world's hospitality before returning to Derry to pass all the good vibes onto you. We run our hostel with an emphasis on friendliness, helpfulness and making you feel at home, which are all things we value as backpackers overselves. Solo travellers come on down, you'll find it really easy to meet other people and (hip-hooray) no worries about huge tour groups exploding onto the scene and taking over the place. Our Hostelworld customers seem to think we're doing something right as they rate us as one of the best hostels in Ireland.


TOP CITY HOSTEL IN IRELAND

With an average HostelBookers rating of 92%, you, our Hostelworld customers, have voted us as your top rated hostel in Derry. Have a look at some of the reasons why...


GREAT LOCATION

Our hostel situated in Great James Street in the best possible location in the city center. We are located 2 minutes from the Bogside and 1 minute from all the best pubs and restaurants in Derry City Centre. There is free on-street parking directly across the road.


STAFF

Our staff are totally committed to ensuring you have the best time possible in Derry. They are all backpackers who have fallen in love with this great little city and will do their utmost to see that you love it too. Everything from taking you out to the pub to doing your laundry...

Our team have justifiably earned the reputation as being some of the friendliest staff in any hostel around. You can be sure that you will receive the best welcome possible. We'll provide you with a free map and show you all the hotspots, ie murals, pubs, city walls etc. (everything is literally around the corner from us.)


FREE STUFF

FREE INTERNET AND WIFI

FREE BREAKFAST... good breakfast, cereals (coco pops too!!), bread, jam, marmalade, chocolate spread, plus free tea & coffee all day.

FREE ELECTRONIC LAPTOP SAFES...
In every dorm your own personal safe that is big enough for your laptop and other personable valuables.


BRAND NEW SHOWERS AND BATHROOMS..
Spacious, clean bathrooms with HOT WATER all the time (from proper showers where you don't have to keep one hand on the button while trying to get the shampoo out of your hair with the other!)


SUMMER BARBEQUES

Many nights during summer we offer 'all you can eat' barbeques (burgers, sausages, chicken wings, veggie burgers, bread, sauces, etc). Cost is just 4 pounds and of course the craic is mighty. These are a great way to get people mingling and therefore usually lead onto a pub crawl. Fun. Fun. Fun.


PUB CRAWLS

Most nights a member of staff will round up those who are interested and take them out on a rollicking Irish pub crawl. We usually head for the pubs offering the best cheap drinks promotions, then head onto the live music pubs or clubs. This is a great way to get out and meet the locals. Derry people are renowned for being very friendly and this is a great way to meet them or hang out with other backpackers.


FREE DERRY TOURS

Every day organized political walking tours of the Bogside, run by the acclaimed Free Derry Tours, leave from close to our hostel. These are tours conducted by local people from the Bogside, giving you a unique first-hand insight into the sad events of Bloody Sunday, the Battle of the Bogside, the many political murals and life in Derry during the troubles.


ALADDIN'S CAVE

Over the past ten years we've travelled to many exotic places: India, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Turkey, Morocco, Syria, Egypt, to name but a few, and from these travels we have brought back lots of bits and pieces to decorate our hostels. We've transformed our dining room into a virtual Aladdin's Cave with low tables and low seats, lots of beautiful hangings, and many amazing artifacts scattered around the room. You will be transported to another time and another place.

Which is, after all, where you want to be.


SO WHERE DO YOU WANT TO BE?

Come and stay with us and you will fall in love with Derry.
Who says so? Well for a start you do. You have consistently voted us as the top hostel in Northern Ireland, but other people also agree. You will find our hostels highly acclaimed in every major guide book: Lonely Planet, Lets Go, Rough Guide, Routarde etc.


See you soon!
