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

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.

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.

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).

It was good, but I think there weren't a few bathrooms, if you wanted to take a shower in the morning, it would be difficult.

Great staff, great location and scenery out the common room window even. A minute walk to Giant's Causeway and bus stop is just as far. Only downfall was the bikes they advertised were for rent were actually all broken and rusted out. Kind of messed up some of my plans to go on a trip I needed them for. All in all can't complain though!

The guy in charge of the Hostel during my stay was a very friendly Kiwi chap called John. Great company, helped m to relax and feel at home. Took care of my bike too - always appreciated. Cheers John! The hostel location was excellent and overall it was tremendous value for money.

Great location. Very good room and decent bathroom. Nice staff running it (at the time, but that changes every few weeks).

Unfortunately the heating was very rarely on. At this time of the year one hour in the morning and in the evening is just to less. We were freezing. Two of us got sick. Besides this the hostel is very nice situated and good equipped. Its appearance is very nice, but the cold covered that up. The stuff (only volunteers) were friendly and could not change anything about the heating. Unfortunately there was no owner or permanent employee that could change something about it. so: no recommondation

Excellent location if visiting Giant's Causeway - literally a 1 minute walk! Bus stop is about 30 seconds away, easy trip from Coleraine Train station. Hot breakfast every morning made for you - the best I have experienced. Breakfast menu has 5-6 items to choose from ranging from toast to a full Irish breakfast
