The owners Philip and Colette are great hosts and made me feel so welcome. It's more like staying in someone's home than a hostel. It's warm, clean, friendly, good location and great value for money. What's not to like?

We stayed for 2 nights and couldn't have asked for more, fantastic hosts, free to come and go as you wish. Extremely clean and warm! Perfectly located if you are wanting to visit the causeway coastal path. Great restaurants close to hand.

I booked this hostel after reading reviews from families and being a bit dubious I had absolutely no need to be. from the outset the communication was excellent. I was unable to book online (on work computer) and within minutes of emailing Colette she had a response and was able to sort the problem out. It is easy to find-... More

Near the water, which is a great place to watch the sunset. Thw wifi wasn't great, but the bed was... More

We stayed here during a road trip around Ireland. The room was an ok size with a small double bed in it. We paid extra to have our own bathroom but unfortunately no soap/shampoo were provided which left us unable to use it (maybe bring your own if you are staying here). Room had no TV or tea/coffee making facilities.... More

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!
