I've stayed here a few times with my family, it's fantastic! The location is perfect, right on the beach, there are stunning views over to Inishowen from the sitting room and dining room (and some of the bedrooms). The staff are some of the friendliest people you'll meet, they really make it feel like your home away from home! It's easy to get to by car, but not so much by public transport. The beds are comfy, the rooms are big and bright and the shower rooms are clean and adequate. The kitchen is great, well stocked with some things you might forget to bring with you, but it is a little small if you're travelling in a bigger group.
The hostel is close to Coleraine and Derry and Donegal isn't too far away either! If the weather is good you can surf on the beach or take a walk to Benone strand, and if the weather's bad you can play Monopoly in the family room with the fire lit! I'll be back!
