“The best value on budget”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Good location, few minutes walk to center. Basic rooms, but clean and tidy, with shower, toilet. Can't expect more for this price. Big and equipped kitchen, dinning area. Friendly staff. Exceeded expectations.

I had never stayed at a hostel in Portrush before & wasn't really sure what to expect. What I found was a home from home. Welcoming, friendly, clean & tidy with excellent facilities. I'll definitely be back to enjoy the hospitality.

I am a regular visitor to Portrush and have stayed here several times. The hostel is spotlessly clean. The rooms all have ensuite showers and toilets. They are comfortable and warm. There is a large well equipped kitchen with a separate breakfasting area. Remarkably tea, coffee, bread and cereal are included in the price. A spacious comfortable living room is also available (this is a communal room).
The hostel enjoys an excellent location near the main street and Harbour restaurant complex.
Phillip and Colette are excellent hosts who are knowledgeable and friendly. In fact the hostel is every bit as good as most small hotels. It is suitable for all age groups, people travelling with family or in groups.
It is really very difficult to find fault with the hostel which also provides WiFi and is within easy walking distance of both of Portrush's beautiful beaches.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Portrush holiday hostel.

Very relaxed place to stay. Sociable owners. The bedrooms were comfy, the common rooms very homey. The facilities in the kitchen were excellent. The location was great. Local bars were buzzing due to the music festival but I believe there is music every weekend. The surf was awesome!

I'd never stayed in a hostel before, but we really wanted to go to Portrush on the weekend we chose, and all hotels were either booked up or ridiculously expensive, so we thought we'd give this place a punt.

SO glad we did - the amenities, staff, location, cleanliness, in fact, everything, were top notch. I've been enlightened, this will now be my go to place for future trips, and it should be yours too!

well kept and well located. the owners provide a friendly oversight and are helpful with info. pricing was very reasonable. it is an easy walk from the train or bus and only blocks from ocean and town. our upstairs room on the south side was noisy one night due to neighbors in another building 20 feet from the window. room interior was basic and a little cramped for 2 but was en suite, a plus. bed was older and just so so comfort wise. tv is communal in a downstairs open room. large kitchen and prep areas with complementary cereals, milk, coffee and a large selection of teas. the biggest plus is port rush. family friendly with carnival rides several places in town. beautiful beaches. great golf courses within a 10 min walk. and the harbor and its activities several blocks away.
