This was a lovely little hostel in the town. It isn't too far (by foot or bus) from both the Giant's Causeway and the distillery. The common areas and kitchen were both nice, clean and spacious. The rooms were the highlight. The were very modern and welcome designed with a cool 'loft' upstairs in the room. The hostel was a... More

I was there for 2 nights. It was very calm and I ended up alone in my 4-beds dorm. The owner let me in even if I arrived between 11:00 and 15:00 (normally closed), but I was just lucky he was around. Kitchen is nice. Lots of rules written all over the place ;) room was clean. Very close from... More

I stayed here with my elderly mother who has arthritis - there is an ensuite room for the disabled with a wheel in shower on the ground floor. Basic. Clean. Cheap. Bring your own teapot, towels, tea towels,soap etc and don't weigh yourself down with food - there is an excellent Co Op supermarket nearby. I had a nice time.... More

Not a great place to stay but it was okay. The rooms are spacious but the hot water in the shower was barely lukewarm, and the kitchen equipment really leaves to be desired. Breakfast isn't included but at least the hostel is right next to a pub and there is a supermarket across the street.

Everything was just right with this hostel, located in the centre of the village right next door to a small pub. The hostel was clean with large rooms and friendly staff. Would not hesitate to stay again when in Bushmills.

Not knowing what to expect, we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in a 6 bed room with ensuite to accommodate our adult daughters, husband and me. It had 2 sets of bunk beds with two twins in a loft above. All was very clean and while basic, met all of our needs. We used the industrial kitchen to make our... More

Dennis who ran the hostel made our booking procedure and time at the hostel very straight forward. It is a great location and all of our young people thought it was our best venue we have stayed in yet. It is warm, comfortable and even has an open fire. The kitchen is a great size and all beds had their... More
