As far as i can remember i never stayed in a better hostel than this one. First to say i had a sea view from my window! For such a small price I enjoyed the familiar atmosphere while coooking dinner and breakfast was also included. Just great. I slept in a dorm 6 beds very clean and bathroom was also provided. All the small things that usually missing in hostels were there i mean like soap for hands, towels to dry hand and the kitchen was very well working. It felt like going to someones home.


Rick was helpful and knowledgeable,liked the cat,hope to pass through again.


Great Hostel, very friendly and welcoming hosts, nice living room and when you step out the front door you see the sea. Not luxury but clean and tidy, that's what matters.

We loved our stay at Ricks. He is very friendly and we had a great chat with him about his travels. It felt like a home. Location is a block away from the water with some great views. We had a very wasn't stay there and would recommend it for a nice quiet get away in Portstewart.


We had a great stay at Rick's. He was a wonderful host, and we were very comfortable and had everything we needed. Great kitchen and communal area. Highly recommend staying here, its great value for money!


My friend Tonje and I stayed at Rick's for just a couple days, and it wasn't quite long enough. Great atmosphere, just a short ride from the Causeway, and Rick was an excellent host! Super interesting to strike up a conversation with. :)

The beds are noisy by having mattress with plastic cover. Bed bunks also move all the time with every move anyone makes
