Lovely, comfy place. Bit out of the way, but the beautiful views make up for it, and everything basic you need is there if you have a bit of change to pay for it - washer and dryer, quick food.

We had a very nice stay at Finn McCool's Giant's Causeway! The hostel is located at 2 min by car from the Giant's Causeway! The staff is very nice and the place quite clean!

The staff at Finn McCool's was incredibly friendly and helpful. The owners gave us information about the Giant's Causeway and surrounding area. The staff were very friendly and willing to play games in the evening. Proximity to the Causeway is fantastic! We walked from the hostel to the Causeway, savjng money and hassle. 'Twas a wonderful place to stay!

The volunteers were lovely and working very hard making all the breakfasts for everyone in the morning . Our room was clean but there was no hot water in the morning for a shower or washing up . The bathroom was held together by duct tape . The washing machine appeared to be to in an attempt to patch it up I believe . The conservatory was leaking so it's floor was ruined as a result . The owner would really need to get a professional in to sort these things out .

Best hostel I have ever been too. Definitely a good life choice! :) It is really a B&B and it is fabulous! Free Irish Breakfast. The location is gorgeous! Only a few meters from the entrance to the Giants Causeway! The rooms and beds are comfy, solid, and clean. The staff was so helpful and kind. There is a kitchen if you need to cook. The large table in the kitchen made the atmosphere inviting and promoted socializing. Wifi is solid! Very very safe! Being a female traveler that is a must.

Perfect location : 200m to the visitor center of the Giant's causeway and 20min by walk to the Giant's causeway. The staff is friendly. The bedroom is small but the common rooms are large and nice (there is a veranda with a beautiful view). End of november we were only two guests. The breakfast is cooked. There are no much to eat but it's ok.

Booked in for three nights and decided to stay additional nights due to the comfort of the hostel and the great staff. Very clean hostel and was worth the money. Il be sure to recommend this hostel to other travelers. Good location to the Causeway and town was only a short bus ride away which was great.

a different place than most hostels. doesn't have the glamour, but for some reason attracts the best kind of travelers. it's no party, but it is a massively social place, probably because its so small and personable. if you're going to the causeway, stay the night just so you can stay at this place. highly recommend.

Everything is good ! But in the morning, heater and water boiler are not working. And I have to take a shower in that morning.

There are some updates in the works. The new owners are great and fun to be around. The location is great If you want to see the causeway. I couldn't believe the view from the kitchen. Worth the price right there. The rooms are very clean and up to date. The bathrooms, while tidy, are a bit more dated. There Is a bus stop nearby. The wifi word Consistently and despite being there in the off season, there was some fun nights drinking and talking in the sitting area.

perfect location for Giants Causeway and the Causeway Coast, only a 40 min walk to bushmills, bus stop only a 2 min walk, nice homely laid back feel, staff were nice and helpful. bathrooms needed a good scrub with bleach as quite a bit of mould on the tiles and ceiling, and room had a bit of a damp feel about it, although beds were comfy and linen clean.. but for the location and price definitelt worth the stay!

The only thing Irish about this hostel was its name. Sagging curtains, overflowing rubbish bins, piles of unfolded sheets , late breakfast hours which was not worth waiting for, poor drainage in the shower all made for a disappointing stay.

The room was a bit cramped even for a hostel, other than that though everything was excellent! Perfect location, gorgeous views, really helpful staff - and they make breakfast for you! I would definitely stay here again!! :)

If you want a hostel right at Giants Causeway, this is the place! Right next to the bus stop too. Free full English breakfast, good stuff. Small but cozy rooms.

Fantastic location, right next to the Ird Giants Causeway (The Nook) bus stop and only 100m from the causeway visitor centre itself. Brilliant to have free cooked breakfast every morning. Great walk start close by and staff were always friendly and happy to answer questions. The lounge area is lovely with great views too and the hostel was clean!!
