The Experience

If you want to stay in Derry for free here is your chance! This position is for an energetic individual who will be responsible for cleaning and housekeeping in the mornings. Depending on your level of English, you may be asked to help out in reception during check-out time in the mornings. You may also be required to work a few night shifts in reception. We are a pretty laid back hostel, but when you are required to work, we want 100% effort.

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. :)

Spent 4 weeks at this hostel, wasn't too busy (just as I expected as it was December anyway) and work was quite relaxed (mostly reception work, some cleaning). Overall a nice stay with nice people :)
