What we offer on a school trip
It is situated in the heart of this Historic Walled City, which played host to the City of Culture 2013, and only 2 minutes from the historic walls, museums and cultural centers.
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 the shops are located.
We have 10 bedrooms consisting of two 15 bed 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.
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.
The hostel reception is open from 9am until 9pm, but there is always a member of staff in the building at all times. All dorms have coded door handles for extra security and the front door is equipped with a digital door lock. The hostel has CCTV for extra security throughout the hostel.
We more or less tailor each visit specifically.
