I stayed for three nights at Rick's hostel and I can only be positive about this experience. The room where I stayed in was really cute, equiped with its own little bathroom. The location couldn't be better, as it was really close to the amazing coastline, and it has a busstop at the frontdoor. For me, as a solo-traveller, it... More

Rick was a superb host and gave us excellent advice on where to find a place to eat within a nine minute walk. Currently he takes cash only but the rooms are clean and the hostel is in a good location near the seafront/main area of town. You can park your car on the road around the corner from the... More

Stayed two nights with my buddy whilst we toured Ireland from Canada. The hostel is perfectly located and close to some beautiful scenery in a quaint little ocean side town. Rick is a very knowledgeable and friendly guy and as others have mentioned , his personal touch is one of the hostels major plus points. Another plus point is the... More

If you're on a long term travel, or need a place to sleep on a tight budget, this place will do. Very affordable for the area, which means that a person can't complain tooooo much - you get what you pay for! Rick is a superb guy, VERY pleasant and willing to chat. I think the real complaints we have... More

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 really enjoyed my overnight stay at Ricky's Tourist Hostel in Portstewart. 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
