Lovely location. Rick is a friendly guy whose personal touches make his hostel particularly pleasant, though cleanliness of the kitchen/ dining room could be improved. The hostel is let down by a 'volunteer worker' who is oblivious of the need to wipe dining room tables or sweep the floor. Bread crumbs & breakfast detritus were visible on dining room tables...

Clean, comfortable hostel at a really good price. Rick is very welcoming and friendly. Hostel has lots of nice personal touches and clean comfy beds. Bathrooms were spotless. We were upgraded to an ensuite room free of charge because the room was unoccupied.

Our double room in the attic was very small. Bed linen very worn. There were only two toilets and three showers one of which was not working. Positive points Rick friendly guy, free unlimited tea and coffee. Self service breakfast included. Hostel in good location in town.

I had a Double Room Ensuite that was clean and well presented.For £18pp given the location of this Hostel it is exceptional value. I was able to use Ricky's as a base and I can only say I will be back and I would recommend it. I enjoyed... More

Just back from a couple of days at this first class hostel - a well run place where the emphasis is on informality and relaxation. The place is nothing fancy, but you're not paying fancy prices so that's ok and the location is great - central without being noisy. High level of cleanliness and a warm welcome from Rick, your...

I stayed here with a friend for three nights in August. After arriving by bus we were shown straight to our room which was small but comfortable. We had a twin room - one bunk bed and just about enough space for two bags and people. The shared bathroom facilities were clean and we never had to queue. The hostel... More

Our room had two sets of bunk beds, each with a double bed below and a single on top. There was a kitchen, a dinning area, a... More

Stayed here in Summer 2011, found the Hostel reasonably priced and able to accommodate my large group of friends. Located only a short walk from the centre of Portstewart its in a fairly good location. I however found it to be just OK as a hostel. First impressions inside the hostel was very outdated and old. Clearly little or no... More

This place is very cheap and very basic! It's location for nightlife or even a day trip to the causeway, castle, distillery or rope bridge is perfect!! Ideal for students or travellors!
