"Relaxed atmosphere, and the staff went out of their way to be friendly, helpful and accommodate my needs. I am 49 so much older than the majority of guests, and have health issues. I was made to feel…"

Liked: The free breakfast was great! Clean kitchen and William cooks the breakfast in front of everyone! We weren't given keys to the front door, for extra security front desk is open 24 hours and they open front door when you ring the bell so no one not staying can get entry!

Disliked: Walls very thin, can clearly hear normal conversations from next rooms.. Bathroom was tiny and the toilets seat was loose!

Liked: My friend and I stayed there for two non-consecutive nights. The first night, we had a room to ourselves - and six empty beds. Clean, spacious, and lockers available. The second night, we checked in and the front desk guy gave us a key that didn't work... he ended up putting us in a private room (only one queen bed though) for FREE for the night! Needless to say, my friend and I were pretty happy with this customer service. Also - get the Giant's Causeway tour if in town... for 20 pounds, it is a steal.

Disliked: Not a ton of young people, kind of quiet, front desk guy on the phone a lot.
