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!
Thank you guys for this experience! See ya
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!
I just want to say Thank you so much to Jonny and Tommy! THE BEST HOSTS EVER!
I had a really good time with them and the hostel, they let you be very independent with the tasks and the breakfast its very nice also!
I only wish i could stay longer, but for sure im looking forward to coming back!

The work is straightforward and they do a great job of taking care of the volunteers. Met some really great friends and I hope to be back in Derry sooner than later. There’s plenty to do in and around Derry to keep you busy and the hosts are more than willing to helpe you experience it. Overall it was a wonderful experience and I’ll miss it all.
