  • “I had trouble believing Portrush Townhouse was a "hostel" at first. Not knocking hostels at all, but Portrush felt more like a visiting a dear friend's home, than staying at a hostel.”

  • “Throughout my two months journey this hostel was by far the best one I've stayed in. The staff is great and immediately makes you feel welcome. The hostel itself is amazing; large rooms, great location and a kitchen that would make gourmet chefs jealous. I will come back as soon as I can and definitely won't forget my stay.”
