The hostel is Derry City's largest hostel and can accommodate up to 74 people in both dorms and private rooms. It is situated in the heart of this Historic Walled City, which plays host to the City of Culture 2013 and only a 2 minute walk from all the action of the pubs, clubs, restaurants and the vibrant night life of this fantastic city. The hostel is conveniently located on the Strand Road in the city centre. The Hostel is a 5 minute walk from the famous historic Derry Walls that surround the City. Our aim at is to provide budget-orientated sociable accommodation where guests can stay and enjoy the Derry, in a safe, clean and fun environment.
Our staff are treated with respect, and we really consider them to be part of the Hostel Connect family. Our volunteers are treated the same way. We expect staff and volunteers to work hard and give us 100%, in order to give our guests the experience they deserve. We also play hard and try to make staff and volunteers feel appreciated and valued part of the team.
Night Shift Cleaning Housekeeping Reception
We had everyday tasks of checking people in/out, making beds, cleaning, buying groceries, etc. The owners are there to ensure things are done and your really on your own to do everything. You can work at your own pace depending how much activity there is that day. The owners really want volunteers and guests to have a nice experience. The building has some age and you can clean your own area as you like to make it home. 5/5 location! Tommy is great and will take the volunteers out to see the countryside!

Tommy and Johnny were both great, and Tommy even brought us on a drive around the area to see historic castles and such. The hostel is awesome, with a huge common area, lots of seating, and a nice kitchen. Breakfast is good too, and includes eggs. The work was easy (mostly sitting in reception or cleaning). This was my first time volunteering at a hostel, and I strongly recommend that other volunteers try it also. :)
