A very nice hostel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 17, 2011

It doesn’t take long to walk from the bus station to the hostel, but first I couldn’t find it. It turned out that the main building on Great James Street was closed for some time and only the second house on a quiet street round the corner was open. During the busy months this is where they usually have the private rooms.

I had booked a bed in a female dorm for £13 a night (March 2011). In the dorm there was one bunk bed and a single bed. As I was the first one to arrive I took the single bed by the window. There was a nice bedside table by my bed and in the room there was a lot of hangers. What I missed was a bedside lamp and lockers.

There was a clean bathroom on every floor and there was a living room with a computer to use for free and a TV and movies. Downstairs there was a big kitchen with a small garden outside. Breakfast was included in the price and the best with it was the baking machine. Coming down to the kitchen in the morning it smelled good of bread, and as I was the first one up in the morning I was the one taking the warm bread out of the machine. Besides the freshly baked bread, tea and coffee there was also cereals served for breakfast.

After checking in I got a map of Derry with some recommendations.

The hostel is taken care of very well and has a friendly atmosphere.
