We enjoyed our stay at Castle Hostel so much. The place was very clean and it had a cosy and homely feel. The location is amazing, two minutes walk each to the beach, the marina and to the supermarket. The rooms all have two or three beds, so it's more like a B

Wifi only worked in the living room which is kind of weird and annoying. The kitchen could be kept a bit cleaner but apart from that good!

very nice hostel, not many rooms: it will never be 'overcrowded'

If you're looking for a family-friendly, budget-friendly place to stay on the Antrim Coast, this is it. It's incredibly comfortable, secure, and easy to locate. It's quite quiet, but also a fun place to meet other travelers of all ages, nationalities, and walks of life. If/when I go back to this beautiful place, I'll definitely stay in Castle Hostel again.

This is a lovely hostel. We had a twin room and it was very clean and comfortable. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends. Really close to the beach as well.

Friendly staff. Good location near shore and harbour. Nice kitchen and lounge. Quite cold room, but staff brought us extra blankets, so it was ok. We can recommend.
