From the bus station

We are about a 5-10 minute walk on foot. Just turn right coming out of the bus station and walk down the Foyle Road to the lights, cross Shipquay Street and walk in front of the Guildhall (the building with the big clock, you should have the Guildhall on your right and the famous Derry Walls on your left. Keep walking across the big square and you will come to Waterloo place, keep right and follow the side walk down the Strand Road. You will eventually come to a set of lights (Great James Street), cross the street and keep walking, you will pass the Ice Wharf Bar on your right, then Tesco's and the movie theatre. Look to your left, you will see Cafe and Hostel Connect across the street. If you're unsure then ask someone, Derry folk are very friendly and glad to help point you in the right direction. There are plenty of taxis just outside the bus station as well! Simples

From the train station

Look out for the shuttle bus that will be waiting outside of the station after every train arrives. It will take you to the bus station, which is located in the city centre on Foyle street. Just get on the bus with everyone else. Its free. The train station is located 5 minutes out of the city centre on the waterside. Once at the bus station, follow the directions above or grab a cab.

From Derry City Airport

The airport is about a 20 minute drive from the city centre. Most flights are serviced by the Airporter bus service. It drops off at the Airporter Bus Terminal which is at the far end of the Strand Road situated on the edge of the city centre. The fare is £5. From Airporter bus terminal it's about a 15 minute walk to Hostel Connect, if you're up to it. Just ask the staff to point you in the right direction, but it's fairly easy and once on the Strand Road you just keep walking straight towards the City Centre. A taxi from the Airporter Terminal to the hostel will run you £2.50 - £3.
A taxi from the airport will cost around £12/13 , so for more than one person, this makes a better option.

From Belfast International Airport / Belfast City Airport run shuttles from both airports every 2/3 hours. It takes 90 mins from Belfast International and 120 mins fron Belfast City Airport. Fares are £18.50 single and £29.50 return.
