The experience at the hostel was positive overall, the strong point was the harmony found with the other volunteers, their help was essential to play my tareffe inside the hostel, especially to clean where I am called because in opportunity to clean the best way I lost time not finishing everything in the timetable. In addition to this and the problem of bedbugs that forced me to take the medicine because I am allergic to insects, the stadia was rewarded by the pizza laps that John and Tommy offered us without saying the simply wonderful Game of Thrones tour. Wonderful experience. Thank you!

It was an amazing experience. I always wanted to work in the hospitality industry and this allowed me a little window into that. The hostel itself is a cute little place with plenty of charm. It's a perfect place to explore Northen Ireland and if you don't mind a bit of travel all of the Republic of Ireland. Even though you barely see them Tommy and Johnny are great people to talk too. Derry itself has plenty of history and things to do including some beautiful walking paths. Thanks for the oportunity.

I had an amazing time volunteering at Hostel Connect! The people were amazing and Derry is a lovely city with so much history. The bar scene is loads of fun at night with events going on all the time. I wish I could have stayed longer, I’ll miss it! Thank you for everything Johnny, Tommy, and Jessica!

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.
