there is a fully equipped self-catering kitchen, relaxed dining area and an extremely comfortable common room featuring an open fire and lots of books.
The hostel is centrally heated throughout and has a variety of rooms, some 6 or 8 bed dorms, some family rooms and some double or twin rooms. A number of these are en-suite and for the other rooms there are showers with hot water available all day.
Check in can be up to 22.00 at night but if you expect to arrive after 20.00 you should contact the hostel to let us know.

The hostel has good bus connections with Belfast, Derry and all the sights of the Causeway Coast, so it is an excellant base for exploring The Giants Causeway, Dunluce Castle, The Old Bushmills Whisky Distillery, Carrick-a-rede rope bridge and The Mussenden Temple.

    Rick was a great host! We enjoyed talking with him about his backpacking adventures and he was very helpful to us as we planned our adventures of the day. One of the best features of Rick’s Causeway Coastal Hostel is that is just steps away from the Ulster Way / Causeway Coastal Way. And the bus stop is nearly as close in the opposite direction. Rick’s hostel is close to shops and restaurants. It is an easy and scenic 3-mile walk to Portrush, where you can pick up the Causeway Coast Rambler bus.

    Ricky is an amazing host, I went with my friends and from the minute we arrived he made us very welcome and left us to our own devices. Close to all, including beach. We will be back 😊

    Feels like coming home. The first thing at arrival is you're being offered 'a wee cup of tea' on the living room sofa. When you look out of the window you see the sea (you can walk there in 1 minute). The owner and his family are absolutely lovely people. I would highly recommend this hostel to individual travellers, couples and families.

    I have been a bit disappointed on my stay in February for my night during a wet winter, during the winter season the hostel is less attractive and does not offer the best value for money.

    Rick is super kind. The view of the ocean is stunning. There are many books around the hostel for guests to enjoy. The kitchen is equipped with the basics for cooking dinner. Our toliet was broken when we arrived, but Rick was quick to inspect it and ordered a new part it needed. We used a different toliet instead. Overall it was a wonderful stay.

    Rick's was friendly and comfortable.The location was fantastic- close to the ocean and the Portstewart Promenade. Our only disappointment was that the WiFi was not available in guest rooms; it only functioned intermittently in the dining room.

    Rick wasn’t around much and some ladies were smoking in the house. Kitchen and bathrooms were messy / in need of repairs.
