Just returned from a weekend at Sheep Island View Hostel and Conference Centre as part of a school party. I was very pleasantly surprised. It was clean and comfortable through-out. The bed room was warm and the bed comfortable. Breakfast (for me) consisted of juice, cereal, toast, wheaten bread and a cooked breakfast of sausage, egg & bacon. Brilliant. The staff were friendly and just let us get on with it, apart from when serving breakfast when they were great.

Needless to say the location is fabulous. We walked to Ballintoy Harbour and to Whitepark Bay.

I don't know what it would be like to stay as a "hosteller" but I would certainly highly recommend it for use by groups such as church groups and school groups.

This is a great hostel. The couple who own it are lovely. I went as part of a group of students on a geology field trip and we were treated very well. They were very generous at meal times, with second portions being offered at every meal. And it's good food! The beds are comfortable too. It's situated in a nice little village and on a clear day there are great views. Only 12 miles from the Giant's Causeway.

Was my 2nd visit to the place in 6 years and was glad to see that the quality hasn't dipped one bit. It is a great location with great views across the rugged coastline. And of course there are a couple of lovely pubs around the corner - RopeBridge Bar and the Fullerton Arms, both of which have Irish music through the week. As a Sheep Islander, you even get a 10% discount at the RopeBridge bar. We stayed in Room 1 which is 3-bedder, although we had booked a twin. The bathroom is large and very clean. The kitchen has all the amenities for use and very well maintained. For the price, I think its location and ambience make it a value proposition. Wouldn't hesitate, ever, to recommend this strongly.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have ready access to the lounge and kitchen on the same floor. For views to sheep island directly from the rooms, you should choose the ones on the upper floor.

Stayed here with a group of young adults who all enjoyed their stay. The hostel has all the self catering equipment that you would require and we made use of most of these. Staff very friendly and helpful. A great location on the North Coast, very good for the major tourism sites in the area.

We stayed for one night in a double room with en suite, all basic but very clean, the en suite was more like a wet room. There were no towels provided but luckily we always travel with some.
We didn’t use the communal areas as we got breakfast out and about but they looked large and well kept.
Very helpful host, we arrived quite late and they were very happy to help even though it was 9pm and they were eating their supper.
