My partner and I stayed here for one night on a road trip around Northern Ireland and found this hostel perfectly lovely. The staff were friendly, rooms were clean, and the free breakfast was cooked to order and tasty. Plus, you cannot beat the location--walking distance to the Giant's Causeway! I felt safe and comfortable during my stay and would...

What a beautiful area, fascinating story. Mini buses will help you to reach the site. Can be done walking since it starts downhill...be aware of the return. Climbing request steady footing but the view from the path are worth it.

So for 17 Euros a night it is okay. This place needs help. The service is okay. The place could be really cute if some money and some maintenance went into it. It is a hostel, so a person really needs to be prepared for that. We had a room with 4 so called bunk-beds: the bottom beds were mattresses...

My friend and I chose this hostel because of its proximity to the Causeway... it's a short walk to it! The staff were friendly, nice conversations and it's nice that the breakfast was included... coffee tea oatmeal and toast was great

This hostel is adequate but not great compared to other hostels I have stayed in. Firstly, the good points; it is well situated (close to Giants Causeway), it is relatively clean, staff are friendly (but sometimes a bit clueless) and breakfast is included. The not so great points; double beds in shared dorm rooms is a bit strange (and the...

We chose this location as so close to giants causeway. Its a lovely walk and has picturesque views across to the ocean. The property is a little old but makes up for it in charm and has everything you need for a night or two, even a cooked breakfast. The room was quite small and bed bunks very squeaky but...

This is a fun filled day tour with lots of stops in Northern Ireland. If you have difficulty walking or are a slow walker you should definitely take the shuttle at the Giants Causeway. We spent so much time waking that our time at the causeway was a little rushed. There are many other stops on this tour- The Dark...

Great experience, on a fine day! Plenty of space the kids loved the interactive activities a also, not cheap long journey from wicklow but you gotta do it!! I suggest you go on a summers day ? Been there in winter and it's very grim, sit in the rocks and take it in! Great for all ages!

My friend and I stopped by to see if we could get 2 beds for the night. It was not a problem. The people working the hostel were like many others working there for a period of time from all over the world. If you have never stayed in a hostel before it is a great way to stay where...

Perfect little cosy spot for a night or 2 roughing it with teenagers. Ticked all boxes for location , handiness and functionality of a hostel. Lower your expectations and ' presto' ... Enjoy the experience 🙏🏻 We did 😃Bring a pack of cards if someone is hogging the t.v . Bingo . Win/win. Fab .

“You may have either males or females staying in the same room with you so be prepared for that. Ask for a room facing the water if possible to be away from the braying donkey! Take your ear plugs.”

“The four bed room had two bunks and was quite spacious. The bunks are basically timber frames, so the bottom bunk is basically a mattress on the floor, but still sleepable. Isolated area so it's very quiet and comfortable.”
