Visited for a few days in July. Stunning location and property. Angela goes out of her way to make everyone welcome. An ideal location for touring the North Coast, used an ILink Card (£60) for 7 days, able to use any bus, train etc throughout the entire Province.

Clean hostel overlooking one of the nicest beaches in northern Ireland. Very kind owner, well equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, one the best hostel I've ever been. I was travelling with my family and we accomodated in two ensuite.

Whitepark Bay Hostel was the perfect place to get some well-needed rest! The place was spotless and I was really impressed by the ensuite bathrooms. The hostel had everything I needed and Angela goes above and beyond to make sure everyone has a good stay. The views are stunning and the beach is right on your doorstep to go for... More

Angela is the most welcoming manager. The hostel is spotless, the en-suite room was big enough (with a tv, which we didn't use) and a good bathroom (but as with all hostels not enough hooks/rails!). Kitchen well equipped. Dining and lounge have fantastic views along the coast ....and sunsets are amazing (weather permitting!!). good parking.

The setting is the highlight, lovely beach. Not far from the rope bridge and Giant's causeway. We went to Ballycastle for dinner but saw others bringing in take away pizza which was a good idea. The fire was lit when we were there. The kitchen facilities were grand. We just were a little uncomfortable in our mixed dorm as we... More

Stayed here for one night. Typical hostel with no extra amenities. Some of the sheets were not clean, but we're able to be replaced. The view is comparable to none other, and the hostel overlooks the bay. Wifi was weak, and only available in the main room

Hello Abby And thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Unfortunately your unclean sheets were as a result of a problem with our supplier. We took photos of the sheets to show the supplier and advised them in no uncertain terms that this was unacceptable. We can only apologize on their behalf and hope that you... More

Pleasant typical hostel. Nothing more, nothing less. Successful arrival in the late hours. We got a room with a sea view. The lady at the reception was very talkative and willing. Wifi signal was only in the main room.

We've stayed here a couple of times, and just love it! The setting is pretty unbeatable, with amazing views and a beautiful beach for walking along. The hostel itself is large, clean, well organized, and the staff are friendly and helpful. Excellent value for the price, would definitely recommend :)

A beautiful location overlooking the beach. Spotlessly clean and a lovely view from bedroom window and we had our own private bathroom.The manager was very welcoming and extremely friendly and most helpful. The facilities in the hostel were very useful and easy to use. I loved it and can't wait to come again!
