WPB was out first stop of our 18 days of travel in Ireland. The setting is BEAUTIFUL! It felt like we had been there before, then I realized that the photo on the cover of our Ireland guidebook was the view out our bedroom window at the hostel!!!! We had a wonderful time here and met a number of people...

This was a last minute trip booked for my family and our first time staying at a hostel. The facilities were excellent, the whole place was very clean, staff very friendly and helpful, and the views were gorgeous. Perfect spot from which to explore the Antrim coast.

I brought a group of 32 school children to stay here and it was the perfect base. The hostel is well-equipped and well-maintained. The rooms are comfortable and the views from the sitting room are stunning. It provided everything we needed for a comfortable week's stay. Many thanks to Gretta and the staff for being so helpful and accommodating!

This hostel is very well maintained with friendly helpful staff. The hostel overlooks the beach and is a great base for exploring local attractions such as the Giant Causeway, the Bushman Distillery the rope bridge. A great budget choice.

Went to spend one night in this hostel for Easter. I was honestly pleasantly surprised by how clean the rooms were, how great the common premises were (large dining room/living room with a fireplace). It comes with a shared fully equipped super clean kitchen. More importantly to me at least, was the super friendly and extremely warm and helpful welcoming...

Do not expect the best comfortable place where to stay. The location is what makes the place worth it. It could be wiser to bring the place to a more modern facilities.

I have to admit, I expected the world of this hostel, with its stunning views and comforting location.  Hate to be the one to say it, but the staff seemed quite thick.  They offered little without prompting and were hard pressed to give direct answers to simple questions like which bus to take where, what to do, and so forth....
