Downhill Hostel has been nominated by guides the best hostel in Noerthern Ireland and I now understand why! The location is perfect, on a beautiful long beach, William the owner is very nice, the kitchen etc are very convenient, the room was lovely. It's much better than an average hostel, you have the most amazing view and the price is not even too expensive!! The only thing is that you have to book in advance...

This was an amazing change of pace from a traditional hostel experience. The room was quiet and the other guests were respectful. I will recommend this hostel to everyone going to Northern Ireland. I would love to come back and stay for weeks.

Excellent attention, plus a very friendly atmosphere. It was a pitty we couldn't get the room with seasight... I would strongly recommend it to friends and it's likely for us to repeat.

Very nice hostel at a wonderful beach. And also very nice staff. When we left in the morning, we unfortunately didn't have the time to say "thanks" and "bye" to William (the owner), so we do it now on that way!
