Hostel Connect

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.

My time at Hostel Connect was awesome! Jonny and Tommy are great guys and they helped me with everything I needed. The other volunteers were incredible and fun! You have a lot of autonomy and they try their best to give you free time to travel around. Small thing, you have to work hard in the shifts but they aren't long.
Thanks for everything!

I definitely reccomend staying at hostel connect, Jonny was a great host, the work is straightforward and nobody is left behind if unsure of what to do. The common area is great and the hostel is overall very relaxed and homely.

He takes time ton explain! I genuinely felt that he cared for me! Also Tommy is very friendly as well! Took time to drive me around Interesting place! The staff is very friendly and fun to be around!! Made some good friends that I hope to keep it touch for a while! The job is pretty easy especially when you work with hard workers! Extra hours are compensated!

I had a great time at Hostel Connect! Tommy and Jonny are both really helpful when teaching you, and are always there if you have any questions. Derry is a great city with an amazing atmosphere, and anything you need is basically within walking distance. The hostel really did feel like a 2nd home!
