About Hostel Connect

Hostel Connect is located on the Strand Road, the main through fare and bus route of the city. We are literally 2 -5 minutes from the famous historic walls dating back to 1601; the Bogside area which is home to the famous Bogside Murals and the tragic and controversial Bloody Sunday conflict of 1972; and Waterloo Square where many of bars are located.

We have 10 bedrooms consisting of two large mixed dorms; a 9 bed dorm, one 6 bed female only dorm; one 6 bed mixed dorm; one private family room (double and triple bunk) and three private double rooms (double bed); and one twin room (two single beds). Each room is named after the funky color that it has been painted!

We have lovingly brought back the original wooden floors throughout most of the hostel adding a great ambiance. The hostel also boasts and huge common room where you can chill and hang out on sofas and watch TV or movies on our large screen TV. We have specifically located this on the top floor and in its own wing of the building, so you won't be disturbed or won't disturb other guests. We plan to have plenty of music nights and pub crawls to keep you occupied as well!

The hostel also has a good size kitchen and dining area (open 7am -10:30pm) on the first floor. There are 6 separate shower rooms (electric so you'll never run out of hot water), 3 on each floor. We offer a free continental breakfast with each night stay, free wifi throughout the hostel and smiles are always free.

Our aim at Hostel Connect is to provide budget-orientated sociable accommodation where guests can stay and enjoy the 'craic' in Derry, in a safe, clean and fun environment.

Location Information

Location/Area
Located in the heart of the city centre, the hostel is on the main bus route and is only a hop, skip and jump to pretty much everything. We have several pubs only a stone’s throw away, numerous restaurants and eateries in any direction, a movie theater and shopping complex across the street, a 24 hr convenience store 2 minutes away, as well as a chemist/drug store and barber shop below us. The street is well lit so making your way back at night from the pubs and clubs is easy and safe and only a 2 min walk. We are seconds away from the Quay, if you fancy a stroll along the banks of the Foyle River, the river that splits the city. We are a 5 min walk to the Millennium Forum, the Play House, the iconic Peace Bridge and Ebrington Square (home of the Venue Concert Hall and BBC One ‘One Big Weekend 2013’)
