A bike shed would be appreciated (although there are bike stands.)
This hostel is actually more of a house! Very comfortable, clean, and quiet. The location is perfect! A short walk and you are right at the Causeway so you can go back for sunset! I would definitely recommend staying here. If you are arriving by bus, you can ask the driver to let you off at the hostel, but if you miss the stop, it's just a short walk back on the main road. Also, I would bring food with you if you don't have a car and wish to cook your own dinner. No grocery nearby.
Positives: This was an amazing experience for my daughter and I. We had a relaxing time and met some great people. The location was perfect for the Giant's Causeway and other local sights. The house staff was exceptional!! Negatives: The shower curtain was very moldy and the bottom bunks were just mattresses on the floor. Recommendation: Needs better signage for locating.
Confortable place to spend a night near of Giant's Causeway
Amazing staff and atmosphere. It would be good to specify that, even though the hostel is technically in Bushmill's, one must NOT enter Bushmill's to reach the hostel, but rather continue walking on the coastal path.

I have stayed in many Hostels over the years. So I am able to compare Finn McCool`s with others. The Hostel is ideally located for walking to the Giant’s Causeway. and has a comfortable common room. Good showers. The beds are clean and warm. The only down side is there is no bike shed but I was provided with plastic sheet that keeped my bicycle dry.
Great location, friendly and nice staff. Rooms a liitle bit too tiny.
Great hostel ! Atmosphere is awesome, thanks to the staff about that, and the view in the garden is so nice too. Excellent location, 5 minutes walking from Giant Causeway entrance, definitely there is no better point.
Both me and my friend really enjoyed our short stay at this hostel. The facilities were amazing, the location was perfect and the staff was excellent. Both Isabelle and Alberto were both really friendly and lovely to talk to. It was a short stroll to the causeway which was spectacular. They also made a great cooked breakfast for us in the morning which was included in the room price. I'd recommend this place to anyone. - Chris and Andrew from Canada
This was a really great, small and cozy hostel. Though everything was perfect, I think it could have been a little bit less expensive.
This place is great! It's a little hard to find in the dark, because the sign is a little small. It is a few minute walk to Giant's Causeway, so you don't have to pay for parking at the Giant's Causeway parking area. The rooms and bathrooms are very clean, and it feels like a B&B. The front desk guy is SO NICE and helpful.
Had great staff that were all very fun to chat with and helpful about visiting the giants causeway. The breakfast was a proper english breakfast, not just corn flakes and toast. The location is great and the hostels patio area is beautiful! Highly recommend staying here for a day or two because it is so convient for the causeway, but unfortunately not so much for anything else.
super service, wonderful atmosphere! The seaview for breakfast is really great. The only thing you need to know is that the location of the hostel is really isolated - no pub or supermarket close to the hostel. You really need a car to come around. But the positive thing about the location is: You can just walk in for the Causeway and visit it free. Otherwise, with a car, you would pay per person.
Although this hostel is a bit far from town, the location was great for scenic walks and for visiting the Giant's Causeway. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and made me feel comfortable from the moment that I arrived! The breakfast was delicious, it was a very clean place and I would suggest this hostel to anyone!
Excellent location, facilities, friendly staff. Definitely value for money as well. Had a wonderful stay :)

Fab location for the Giants Causeway. Helpful, friendly staff. Could do with an extra shower/toilet though as there was often a long wait for both
Brilliant breakfast, loved the table tennis, couple extra bats would be even better!
Finn McCool's is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in, and this is due mostly to the amazing staff! They are incredibly helpful and accomodating. The location is right next to the causeway and has amazing views of the Irish country side and coast. The place is really cozy with all the facilities you could possibly need- the kitchen is incredibly stocked with essential and they even have a fridge where you can buy beer for a really good price! Also the breakfast they serve is delicious!
