Awesome, honest, chilled out place
This was my very first hostel experience and I absolutely loved it. First day there was bbq night for 3 pound, it was good. I had a private room. I loved the views from the staircase. Everything is very clean, owner is awesome and chilled and willing to give you honest advice for the rest of your journey. Great place!

Homelike
Very close to a home stay feel about the place. Steve is like a great uncle. Very helpful, laid back, hospitable. Clean for an older property. Bed was saggy but cosy. Not a party hostel, but with thin walls you'll want ear plugs.

Very good
Very good, beautiful common area, cosy room. Problem with getting the water warm for the shower but excellent place in general.

Derry City Independent Hostel
We booked this hostel on the basis of past visits, and once again we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Kylie gave us her usual cheery welcome. Our room was warm and comfortable despite the cold weather, and there was always plenty of hot water. The atmosphere was superb, and with a great pub just across the road, it is really quite the best hostel in Ireland.

Would definitely stay here again!
We loved our stay here at the Derry City Independent Hostel. Our host Kylie was super helpful, friendly, an experienced traveller and quite professional -- all qualities that echo throughout this hostel. Kylie and her husband have thought of many things other hostels overlook, obviously a result of their travel backpacker-backgrounds. We stayed at their location aimed at couples around the corner from the main hostel. The interior was clean, well-kept, stylishly decorated and felt like home away from home. The location was brilliant and the tips about our surroundings from Kylie were greatly appreciated. We noticed that there were just about no posters or obvious suggestions for tours/pubs that you see at other hostels, which made us feel that her tips were genuine with little if any biases. Was so great to have a continental breakfast included (tea/coffee/yummy bread/cereal/jams/milk). We would happily stay here again and will definitely recommend it to others.

Hostel had an atmosphere in heaps
this small hostel really stands out from the crowd. the staff are uber friendly and the owners travel souvenirs like the buddha statues, indian wall hangings, and hand painted tables are the sort of things that more hostels should have. they really added to the sense that you were traveling and not just staying in a travelodge sort of place that you could find 2 miles from home. definitely stay here if spending a night in derry.

Best hostel in Europe
Great hostel, super friendly staff, lots of character, very clean, and hot showers. Without a doubt the best hostel I've stayed in in Europe, it would rank right up there with some of the best from Australia and the South Pacific which are the best that I've seen.
