The room was not as described on-line. It was just between the laundry and the kitchen. There were dirty linen on the floor and due to a bad or no ventilation smoke form the kitchen was everywhere. There were two bunk beds of which the lower beds where on the floor. No lockers, no wardrobe, not even hangers (there was...

I stayed here recently and I must say I was very disappointed. I booked a private room which was on the ground floor . The bed was fine but there was a broken armchair in the room. The curtain looking out onto the bikes/carpark was held up by string and didn't cover the window properly. The bin in my room...

This hostel location is superb as it is within walking distance to Giant's Causeway. Staffs weren't that friendly except one guy (he sounds from Latin country) who is friendly and offer to help with our bags (but we decline it nicely as we can lift it ourself). But he is the only one who smile at the reception area. Room...

I came to the area without a car and needed to stay somewhere nearby to the Giant's Causeway. Finn McCools Hostel was the perfect place! It's a 3-minute walk from the Causeway visitor center, and a fraction of the price of the Causeway Hotel. It's not a luxury hotel, but it's comfortable and functional. You can buy drinks and frozen...

Excellent tour of the Giants Causeway and Game of Thrones, saw all the sights with great information. The guide Aoibheann was fantastic informative, friendly and gave a great tour for all, could not hope for a better guide for the day. Danny the driver was also fabulous. Would definitely recommend this tour if you want to see a great part...

My partner and I stayed here for one night on a road trip around Northern Ireland and found this hostel perfectly lovely. The staff were friendly, rooms were clean, and the free breakfast was cooked to order and tasty. Plus, you cannot beat the location--walking distance to the Giant's Causeway! I felt safe and comfortable during my stay and would...

What a beautiful area, fascinating story. Mini buses will help you to reach the site. Can be done walking since it starts downhill...be aware of the return. Climbing request steady footing but the view from the path are worth it.

So for 17 Euros a night it is okay. This place needs help. The service is okay. The place could be really cute if some money and some maintenance went into it. It is a hostel, so a person really needs to be prepared for that. We had a room with 4 so called bunk-beds: the bottom beds were mattresses...

My friend and I chose this hostel because of its proximity to the Causeway... it's a short walk to it! The staff were friendly, nice conversations and it's nice that the breakfast was included... coffee tea oatmeal and toast was great

This hostel is adequate but not great compared to other hostels I have stayed in. Firstly, the good points; it is well situated (close to Giants Causeway), it is relatively clean, staff are friendly (but sometimes a bit clueless) and breakfast is included. The not so great points; double beds in shared dorm rooms is a bit strange (and the...
