I stayed at the Portush Holiday Hostel for quite some time as a student, and I'm very happy that I did. I enjoyed my stay, the little town and the coastal area immensely! Besides that.. Philip and Colette are the nicest people you'll ever have the pleasure of meeting! They're always very welcoming and helpful. The rooms are practical, clean & cosy. As for the location, whether you're coming or going you're always treated to a spectacular view! I'm definitely looking forward to spending more time there in there in 2013!!

My boyfriend and I went to Portrush Hostel for a few days before the rush of college started again. We had such a wondeful time. Our room was lovely and cosy, the bed was great, the hot water in the morning was also great!! Plenty of beautiful places to eat and walk around. I would highly suggest you stay here!

We'll be back again for sure!

I booked the Hostel on the internet and based it on the reviews. I was very happy .It is warm and friendly. I was traveling with my two daughters and we Had asked for a family room. The internet transaction didnt quite get all details clear. But a room was made available so that I didnt have to bunk with my daughters and two other unknown females.
Management was great and worked to help us get familiar with the hostel and the area. It does appear to have been remodeled since we visited and seems to have gotten even better.My daughters and I used it as a base to travel most of the Antrim coast and love the traveling and the meals we shared with others while resting up for the next days adventure.

Room Tip: No elevator,no big deal. Make sure to see Dunluce Castle as its only a few minutes away. I had a fro...

Nice cosy joint right where u want to be, close to bars, restaurants, harbour, beach n surf shops. Super friendly helpful owners, great little town make sure u sink a pint at the harbour bar then duck next door to the bistro for an amazing feed. *warning ridiculously huge portions... beware the monster honeycomb cheesecake* if surfing the guys at troggs have got u sorted.

Portrush is a great little town in northern Ireland, and we had a lovely stay at the Portrush Holiday Hostel. As we were travelling in the off season, it was very quiet the weekend that we stayed, despite the surfing championship going on in the North Atlantic in the middle of March (Brrrrr!). There was ample parking in front of the building. The hostel was on a quiet street, but walking distance to the restaurants, pubs, and attractions. We had a nice little tour of the town, and had a great sleep in our private double room with ensuite! The Owner checked us in, and showed us our room. She was happy to help with anything that we needed. Breakfast of cereal/toast/tea made the start to our next day great!

We stayed here on our 2nd night of a 2 day tour of County Antrims coast. It's a great base if you're exploring the Giants Causeway. It was basic but served our needs and also included a lovely ensuite shower room.. something which I wasn't expecting from a hostel!

The owners were helpful and there is a large well equipped kitchen where basic snacks and breakfast items can be made. We bought eggs from the nearby Spar the next morning and had a lovely cheap breakfast before continuing our tour.

There was also CCTV with the camera by reception so felt very safe indeed.

It's right in the town so great for exploring Portrush but we didn't hang around too long as we wanted to explore other sights!

Room Tip: Bear in mind that there are no lifts.. not major if you don't have much luggage. We had a room...
