I loved my experience at hostel connect! If I didn’t have too many plans, I would’ve stayed for the entire summer! Jonny is a very considerate boss and he recognizes and appreciate hard work! 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!
