Great hostel! Perfect location for the Causeway and taking a stroll there in the evening to watch the sunset is a must! Also great as a base to explore the rest of the coast and Northern Ireland. Breakfast, food and activity equipment like golf clubs and fishing gear is all available and staff are happy to help with any questions. No complaints, I'll be back!


Great place with amazing scenery!! The drive there was worth it!! Thanks Andre!


This was the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It felt more like a B&B. Location is very close to all the greatest attractions;) you can walk to Giant's Causeway and the Old Bushmills distillery. I highly recommend this place!


Good location near Giant's Causeway, enjoyed being able to fix meals and having frozen meals available to purchase. Leaky sunroom was weird, buckets not emptied when near full. Smallest hostel room we had and smallest hostel breakfast (1/8 of a tomato!). Owner was very helpful with directions.


The location is great, just minutes from Giant Causeway so cool to visit early/late after the crowds are gone. And I was lucky being the only person in the 6 bed dorm, but if it was full- it would be way crowded.


One of the coolest little hostels in Ireland!!


One of the best hostels we've stayed at! Staff were so kind and helpful, particularly the new owner! The bus stop is very close to the hostel and you are a short walk away from the Giant's Causeway and can easily walk to the town of Bushmills too. The kitchen was well stocked and clean. Sitting in the sun room was perfect for taking in the amazing views. The wifi worked perfectly! The rooms were reasonably spacious with comfy beds and lockers. Breakfast was small but satisfying. Would recommend!


One of the nicest hostels I have stayed at. The staff and owners are extremely warm and friendly people. Enjoyed meeting them and made my stay very nice. Amazingly beautiful location just a few hundred meters from the Causeway. From the sunroom/common area/dining area, there is an epic view of the coast, farmland, and sunset. Beds and bathrooms are kept clean. Hot breakfast included, which was awesome. The village and is extremely peaceful at night once the tour groups leave. Highly recommend.


Like i wrote on my review. Everything was realy excellent. And the owner Lance made everything that was possible to help us out


Nothing spectacular, but a great place just a few minutes' walk from the Giant's Causeway. Clean, nice breakfast, available kitchen. Overall solid place.


The hostel was amazing, great location, friendly staff, there was so much to see and do, I feel homesick for having to leave, just the best.


Seriously this was the best hostel i have ever stayed at. It is very laid back, clean and has one of the best views of the Northern Ireland coast. Super close to giants causeway and an easy stumble from lovely Bushmills. I would stay here again for sure.


One of the best hostels around! Really nice place and friendly staff. Worth the stay!


Lovely place. Lovely location.


Really enjoyed staying here. Staff were very helpful and location is great! Would definitely stay here again!


Staff was great. Location was ideal but the was only one working shower and the washing machines was also broken. The one shower that worked needs the mold on the ceiling to be cleaned badly.

Perfect location, lovely homely feel to it and a great full English hot breakfast to start the day in Irish weather :)


The hostel is located near Giants Causeway and surrounded by green fields. Very good location! The room is clean and tidy.


Awesome staff, we arrived very late in the night and still there was someone to check us in. The place was cool and our room had a beautiful view on the sea and green plains, that was brilliant !


rooms, staff, breakfast and common area were very good. But the kitchen was extremly dirty and badly organized. Most of the tools available in the kitchen were broken, if you were able to find them in the unorganized mess. Also I noticed some ingredients for breakfast/supper served by staff were not kept in the fridge where they should have been (already opened jams, ketchup, burger sauces).
