This was my first time staying in a hostel so I was apprehensive but I enjoyed it. This was the cheapest accommodation option for our long weekend in march and I felt it was very good value. We stayed in a private double room with an ensuite so it was just like a hotel. The rooms were clean and the...

Stayed here for one night and found it to be a decent hostel. Room was clean and staff were pleasant. The Causeway Cafe that is attached is a great addition. The breakfast was of good value and quality. Although you are paying extra, it has to be the best breakfast I've had when staying at a hostel.

I stayed here for two nights and over all it wasn't bad. There is free parking in the rear and its protected by an electric gate which is nice is if you are traveling by car. The rooms were decent although the beds were very narrow and squeaky..at least in the four bed dorm i stayed in anyway. The hostel...

My daughter and stayed for 2 nights. Ideal for somewhere just to put your head down. The room was clean but our beds squeaked when you sat on them so we ended up putting the mattresses on the floor. The bathroom was a wet room with a shower - the floor was quite slippery when wet so was dangerous. The...

The Hostel is well located, has comfortable bed and great friendly staff apart from one guy that works at night, he was very unfriendly and rude. In the bedroom, they don't have individual lockers fro our staff, yes, they have a compartment under the bed for each guest but it is not possible to lock it, I had my own...

There were no frills with this hostel, just a simple place to sleep, which was fine for the price. I wasn't given any information about the city (not even a map) when I first checked in, which would have been helpful. The staff for the rest of my stay, however, were very helpful whenever I had questions (and even ordered...

All staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. What let this hostel down was the guy on reception at night who was extremely rude and obnoxious and needs to learn how to treat customers. Apart from the that the toilets could do with being cleaned more often. The rooms are basic but do the job for the price and...

A very clean and friendly hostel, with good facilities. Wifi speed in rooms was slow and outside traffic noise could be heard throughout the night. Generally this hostel was great quality for the price.

Ah, I can't say enough good things about this hostel! The facility was great and clean, the staff (especially David and Paul) were incredibly nice and helpful and the location was easy to get to and from. We were able to book a tour to the Giant's Causeway from the lobby and it was so easy. Will definitely be back!

Thank Natalie S
