The building is very homely with a pantry in the kitchen that you can help yourself to... Never seen or heard of this before in a hostel but it was very welcome. Clean rooms, hot shower and a friendly owner. Will... More

Excellent provided breakfast. Superbly equipped kitchen including more flavours than you could possibly use in your self catering! Large lounge. Beach resort decor. Ease of parking. Superb customer service. Likely the best traveller hostel you will ever encounter.

The best hostel I have stayed in. Clean rooms, friendly staff and good communal areas. The location of the hostel is great too, only a few minutes walk to the cafes and bars. Would highly recommend to anyone who is looking for good value accommodation.

We stayed at Portrush Holiday Hostel as part of a surf package with the surf school in low season so the price was very reasonable. The hostel is very well maintained and clean with breakfast provided. It's only a short walk from the train station, convenient location at a cute town. Highly recommend.

This is no luxurious inn, but a charming hostel offering great value. The ground floor is a bit chaotic and a buzz with staff, and families in the common area. The gentleman who checked us in and showed us to our room was super friendly. The towels were all mismatched, the beds not the most comfortable, but they did the... More

As we never stayed in a hostel before we were not sure what to expect. I was really pleased how central the hostel was to Portrush, very well positioned.
