Booked this place after reading the great reviews and we were not disappointed. We had a fantastic little "beach hut" at the back of the hostel. Our own terrace with table and chairs, gated off from everyone else, a large warm bathroom and a cute hut with very comfy double and bunk beds. Very clean too. The owners were very... More

I stayed in this hostel a few weeks ago and I found it to be excellent. Philip (The Owner) was very friendly, helpful. The hostel was very clean, tidy and well kitted out, the hostel was within walking distance of Portrush and I would stay here again and recommend it. YEAH!

Relaxing atmosphere, kitchen was well equipped with the basics for breakfast supplied. The owners are very helpful & knowledgeable regarding local places to visit etc. Is close to town center. This is a hostel not... More

My family and I stayed here for a night. We got a room with 4 beds (one double, a single and a bunk bed). It was very comfortable! The beach is a 2 min walk away from this hostel! Portrush is a fun tourist city with attractions suitable for people of all ages. We had access to the kitchen and... More

We stayed here for one night while on a road trip round Northern Ireland and Donegal. The holiday hostel was everything, and more, it says it is. We had the double bed ensuite room - basic towels provided. There was a friendly welcome when we arrived; the kitchen was huge with plenty of DIY breakfast food (lots of bread, butter,... More

We are very surprised by this hostel. Our expectations were not high, but this place blew us out of the water. Our room on the 2nd floor is modern and very clean. It is tiny but very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
