We stayed in October in the beach room at the back, lovely room with its own terrace, clean and warm. Friendly welcome and everything explained. Only a short walk from all bars and restaurants at the harbour. Big communal living/dining area. Tea & coffee always available as well as toast & cereal in morning. Had a great stay and would...

Right after I arrived I received a warm welcome from Phil, the owner of this lovely place, who then showed me around the communal areas, explained how the hostel worked and even introduced me to my roommate. I felt immediately at home. There's a big kitchen and a TV lounge and breakfast (bread+butter+jam, cereal+milk) is included in the price of... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in room 2, a private double en-suite. Firstly, the welcome made by Phil was excellent, he showed us all the communal facilities, told us the WiFi password then showed us to our room, and checked the radiator was turned on. We quickly left our bags in & went out to explore. Having your own... More

I am an international student at University of Ulster and I stayed in the Portrush Holiday Hostel for 20 days while I was looking for an accommodation. The Hostel is in a very good position, near the city centre, little supermarkets and the train/bus station. Many trains and buses connect Portrush with the University in Coleraine, the main cities in... More

Haven't stayed in a hostel for many years. When my mate booked this place and told me we were in a 10man dorm for £15 per night I had visions of a living hell. But it was really good. There is a big kitchen and living room downstairs for communal use. The kitchen is stocked up with tea, coffee, cereals,... More

This was one of the best hostels I´ve ever visited, and I have visited a fair few! It was so welcoming and homely- I think the owner guy actually lived there too. The kitchen was so well-stocked, we cooked there and enjoyed our dinner in the cosy living room. The dorms were clean with en-suite bathrooms. We didn´t at all... More

I stayed in this Hostel with my girlfriend just one night as we were traveling along the Causeway coast, but it's been a really pleasant experience. The hostel is in a great position extremely close to the centre of Portrush and to its beautiful beach. Inside, it is really nice, with the most well-equipped and clean kitchen I've ever seen,...

Our stay was excellent from start to finish. We were made to feel welcome and taken through all aspects of the hostel. It was our first stay at a hostel and we were nervous as we had our children aged 7 and 10years with us, but we need not have worried as they quickly settled into the hostel routine and... More
