Positive Reviews

Located walking distance from the Giant's Causeway

Visitors loved the way they were within walking distance of the world-famous Giant's Causeway at this property, which was less than half-a-mile from the Atlantic Ocean. As there was free parking, it meant drivers could leave the car behind and explore the World Heritage Site landscape of volcanic basalt columns on foot. It was also a short drive from Bushmills and Portrush for amenities, shops and dining options. Golf courses, beaches, regional attractions, castles, museums and County Antrim beauty spots were also within easy reach by road.

Praise for rooms and affordable rates

The rooms were reportedly simple but clean, tidy and comfortable. Budget-conscious guests often said they got fair value for money as the room rates were normally affordable. Reviewers were pleased with the pleasant coast or countryside views from the rooms.

Free breakfast and welcoming hosts

This hostel was well-equipped and well-run by friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming hosts, according to many travellers. Diners often said the hot breakfast was a convenient and tasty bonus in the mornings.

Negative Reviews

Claims breakfast portions were small

According to some disappointed diners with larger appetites, the cooked breakfast portions could have been more generous to set them up for the day ahead.

Minor maintenance and cleanliness grumbles

Although many visitors were more than satisfied with the standard of the accommodation, some critics noted maintenance and cleanliness issues. There were occasional claims of dust, stained carpets and bathroom mould. Meanwhile, maintenance complaints focussed on tired-looking furniture and dated decor in some rooms. Several guests called for the bathrooms to be brought up to a more modern standard.

Some rooms were reportedly rather small

According to several reviewers, some of the rooms tended to feel a little cramped, especially when they were fully occupied.
