Excellent location and very friendly and hospitable owners. The family room is very good though not much pressure from the shower. Breakfast is great with free tea, coffee, cereal, toast and jams available. We will definitely return.

Loved this place! Was a little dubious at first as had never hosteled before and with 2 young boys I was a little unsure however any doubts I had were quickly put to rest pretty much as soon as we walked in the door. Our own family room, spotlessly clean, friendly helpful staff and a central location only 5 minute... More

A friend and me were here one night in our way to the Causeway. It's very nice and clean. When we arrived, the stuff informed us about all the things to do, where to eat...they were very nice. The breakfast is included. Portrush is also a beautiful area and it is a buzzing town.

Pristine means 'in its original condition, unspoilt, clean and fresh as if new, spotless' and as a wordsmith I would have to employ this adjective to describe Colette and Philip's family run hostel in Princess Street, Portrush. It's a perfect base to explore this picturesque town and the price is so reasonable. It's 'home away from home' and the contemporary... More

Once again this 'hostel' never fails to deliver perfect service. I say 'hostel' as it's much more than the usual hostel. It's family run for families, couples, backpackers and lone travellers. Very homely. Clean and cozy. Given the choice between other premium or budget local accommodation, I always choose to and enjoy my stay here.

Philip and Colette run a fantastic little hostel! The location is decent and only a 5-10 minute walk to shops and the town centre. Beds are decent and showers/facilities are good.The kitchen and living room have everything you need to relax and enjoy your downtime. I found them to be really helpful when trying to make travel plans and answering... More

Great option to pass a night in the cold Northern Ireland. With a great living room, warmed by a fireplace. Kitchen well organized and we stayed at one room of 12 people that its cute and welkoming. If some day I come back to Northern Ireland for shure I'll go back!

We went with friends, needing a cheap base from which to explore the beautiful Causeway Coast. The reviews on this place were all good so we went for it... An excellent decision from our point of view. The staff were helpful and friendly at all times. They couldn't do enough for us (even helping with parking!). The rooms are clean... More
