It has a fantastic big window overlooking the beach and when the fire is lit I could sit for hours looking out. The walk to the beach from the hostel is a long ramble which ends on the beach so baby carrier is best if you've got wee tots. The hostel is lovely, the rooms are clean and neat. The... More

Clean. Cheerful. Great communal space. Everyone is chilled by their surroundings.Book wellin advance if you're going at peak times as it's very popular. Bring a disposable barbecues and enjoy eating with a fab view overlooking the sea. Good base for heading to see the sites of the Antrim coast.

Very quiet location right on the beach. Kind of in the middle of no where. Beautiful setting and simple, tidy nice rooms. Would be nice if they added some vending machines to get a drink from. Overall happy stay.

Highly recommended! I've just returned from a short break at White Park Bay youth hostel. The facilities are excellent, well maintained, very clean & comfortable ensuite rooms & friendly staff. The views are incredible from the sitting area. I love that you are just steps away from the beach too. A great place to retreat!

That day I swore I would return to stay in the hostel and I was fortunate enough to do so this summer. This hostel is surrounded by everything you imagine when you think of Ireland. It is clean,...

Visited for a few days in July. Stunning location and property. Angela goes out of her way to make everyone welcome. An ideal location for touring the North Coast, used an ILink Card (£60) for 7 days, able to use any bus, train etc throughout the entire Province.
