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!

We fancied a few days away. On looking at the prices of some of the hotels and B&Bs on the North Coast for June / July it was expensive for what you were getting. We don't scrimp and save but like to get our moneys worth. I stayed here a few years ago which had a good experience. So i... More

An absolutely beautiful location. Spotlessly clean. Friendly, homely welcome. We stayed in a very clean, comfortable room with a private bathroom and view up the beach. Loved it. There was only one thing wrong - I could have stayed longer! We'll be back!

I brought a small group of photographers to Whitepark Bay Hostel in March 2014 and we all had a great time. Angela was a lovely hostess and kept a welcoming fire burning to comfort us in after late night photographic trips round this beautiful coastline. We knew the rules - get your room after 5.00pm, out by 10.00am and leave... More

I was recently traveling in Ireland for 3 weeks with my husband, we decided to try out the hostel route due to the rate of exchange and high cost for B and B's. We arrived at Whitepark Bay Hostel at 2:00 pm only to find a sign stating there would be no ability to check in until after 5:00 pm.... More
