Stayed 3 nights with my wife in May. It was a great location, especially friendly to day trips all over the north coast. Private rooms were nice, showers and common areas kept quite clean. William (the host) was friendly and helpful.
Downhill is very quiet and not "next to" anything but the beach and right at the bottom of the cliff below Mussenden Temple. The beach was amazingly empty and perfect for walks. Nearby Castlerock and another village on the A2 provide a couple of grocery shops. (Nearest places to eat are in Coleraine or Limavady) If you have a car, the Bishops Road (100 yards from the hostel) is great fun.
