Pauline Ghyselen thinks…

"We had a very nice and calm stay here, they have a very bug and well-equiped kitchen and very close to the Carrick-a-rede rope bridge!"

Liked: Its location, a comfortable days walk from the Giant's Causeway. Staff was friendly and helpful in arranging transportation on a Sunday morning. Large kitchen. The ensuite bathroom. Clean.

Disliked: A youth group was there at the time we were which made it harder to meet with other travelers. All the hostels up to this point had at least a continental breakfast included and we were unprepared on a Sunday morning without provisions.

Liked: Beautiful setting and views, Very good double room and shower for good price if you are not looking for luxury. Excellent kitchen facilities.

Disliked: Not so much the property but the fact there was a large group in on our second night. They were noisy until quite late and some accompanying children were allowed to be very noisy in the morning. The owner did, however, warn us in advance of a large group and apologised for any noise. Really the group should have booked out the whole hostel if they were not concerned with other people's comfort.

17 April 2010 Annie would recommend this property

Liked: Excellent location in this small village near the Rope Bridge and not far from the Giant's Causeway. Very clean and extremelly helpful staff. Great rooms with toilets/bath, more like a hotel than a hostel. Huge and very-well equipped kitchen; nice place to meet, as in the common room by the fire (not on that day). It took some time for the rooms to warm up on this extremely cold, rainy and windy day but a very comfortable stay in the end. Highly recommendable. Thanks to the nice owners.

Disliked: Annie left no negative feedback.
