The hostel is located just below Giant's Causeway, 2 miles outside Bushmills.

It's a simple house conversion and our vision for Finn McCools is simple: to provide you with a clean and comfortable bed, good food and exceptional staff to make your stay unforgettable!

    Sometime when you're traveling you'll find hidden gems. This hostel is one of them. First the building is really well located. It have amazing view on the Amazing coast through a gorgeous winter garden. And is 5min away from the giant causseway (great to avoid tourist). On another side the building is lovely, well furnished, and the staff are welcoming. Well you really feel like home there. As a conclusion, this hostel is a hidden Jewel, perfect for one night or for a retreat at the ocean.

    A beautiful, small hostel in an excellent location just beside Giant's Causeway. Lovely atmosphere, reasonable prices and very good facilities as well. Breakfast was simple, but more than enough for everybody. Definitely recommended and would stay there again if I'm close by.

    Perfect location for giant's causeway. The rooms are a bit crowded, not enough bathrooms, and the bathrooms that exist are a bit musty and old. No lockers or anywhere to keep luggage. Rooms are not always kept locked. Breakfast very minimal. And yet, still worth it cause of the proximity to the cliffs. Kitchen and lounge were nice. There's a beautiful sun room with a gorgeous view. And beautiful views from the rooms. Would stay again, but not for longer than 1-2 nights.

    The staffs are nice. The condition of the hostel is quite clean. The rooms are a bit compact but manageable. Great free continental breakfast. Location is superb as you can just walk to the Giant Causeway

    Just like someone's house..Really cute and cosy...Too many people when full for the space though..almost impossible to get a place in the kitchen or find a seat at a table at peak mealtimes.Would be ok in good weather as there are lots of outside spaces. Not enough toilets for numbers - When ppl are access to the toilets.only 1 separate one in the building. Great supply of foodstuff available..Tea&Coffee&milk &condiments all there. Real close walking distance to Giants Causeway.

    The hostel is a bit shabby and could do with a deep clean. Bathrooms need a refurb as they're pretty tired. Lower bunks are just mattresses on the floor. Ventilation meant the walls were wet with condensation in my room. It's very basic, but the location is supreme (less than 5 minute walk to the Giant's Causeway) and there's free parking. Friendly staff and good value for the price considering the location - I'd stay here again even though it wasn't a high standard.

    Fantastically located close to giants causeway. The staff are friendly and helpful, and there is. We parking too. The hostel itself is quite run down, with uncomfortable mattresses, with a single pathetically thin pillow and a floor so thin, that I could hear people talking in the kitchen downstairs until the early hours, as if they were sat in the same room as me. Truly one of the worst nights sleep I have had in a long time. That being said the location is convenient and the staff are freindly
