We just spent three nights here while exploring the Coastal Causeway Route, and it was our favorite accommodation during our vacation. The location--perfect for exploring the north Antrim coast and Derry. The setting--stunning views of the beach and ocean from the large windows in our room with a backdrop of dramatic cliffs to frame the hostel and beach. The facility--gorgeous... More

We stayed at the hostel for my Fiancée's birthday for 1 night. The price was very reasonable for a double room with en suite. Because of the date (19th January) we were the only people booked in over our night, and as a result we had free reign of the place. Overall couldn't recommend this hostel highly enough; spacious, very... More

A really beautiful place to stay with the beach on your doorstep in the morning and the sound of the waves lulling you to sleep at night. The facilities are great, the kitchen has all you need and the living/dining rooms are lovely, cosy and comfortable. Lovely steamy power showers very welcome after a chilly dip in the sea! I... More

This place was so perfectly located, it was absolutely picturesque. The owners were the nicest and most accommodating people. The place was very clean. Other guests were nice and clean as well. Seriously - I would definitely stay here again. Absolutely loved this place.

This hostel has the most perfect location. It is overlooking a superb long beach in Northern Ireland which is clean and safe and large enough for the many activities taking place there i.e. fishing, surfing, dog walking and of course swimming. The hostel is friendly, clean and has great cooking facilities. We stayed in an en-suite family room facing the... More

Long time reader of tripadvisor here, first time reviewer (Downhill Hostel inspired me to put fingers to keyboard). My family and I (wife and four children) spent a night at Downhill Hostel during our recent visit to Ireland and all agree it was the highlight of the trip. When we were initially booking our trip, we wanted just to land... More

Just back from a night at Downhill hostel. We love this place so much that we go at least once a year. The setting is stunning and the rooms are very comfortable. We usually have a room with shared bathroom on the top floor (which sleeps 4), or an ensuite room if its available but this time we had a... More

My partner and I stayed at Downhill Hostel for 2 nights in Aug 2013. We had a wonderful time and plan to return. The location is out of this world, the hostel is very well equipped and William was super friendly and knowledgeable. We had one of the en suite rooms, very comfortable and clean - good shower and plenty... More

I've used tripadvisor to book several places on my travels and never been so inspired and satisfied that I've wanted to leave a review. This hostel is more like a self-catering hotel. Nestled amongst the hills and beside a gorgeous stretch of beach, Downhill is comfortable, clean, and run by incredibly friendly folk. The kitchen is well-equipped, the showers are... More

Wonderful location right at the beach, a warm welcome and super friendly staff. The kitchen and dining room are spacious and fully equipped. You should book in advance. It was fully booked when we where there.
