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.Learn more

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 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
