Portrush Holiday Hostel is quite simply one of the best hostels I have stayed in anywhere in the world – let me tell you why.  I have stayed in my fair share. Surf trips around the globe (pre-children of course, now all these are very distance memories!) have meant I have been lucky enough to crash for the night in the USA, Asia, Australia, South America, Central America, Europe and Africa. One may easily fall into the trap of thinking a young surfer will sleep anywhere but I’m actually a wee bit if a fuss-pot when in comes to my forty winks – fleas and dirty pillows are not for me!

I met Philip and Colette while asking them would they mind letting me leave some flyers in their hostel in Portrush last year, they offered me a tour. Showing me around the hostel Philip explained the pride they both have in making sure everything is of the highest standard – and it was. Each bedroom is en-suite (I REPEAT, EACH BEDROOM IN THIS HOSTEL IS EN-SUITE!), and spotless – they have private double bedrooms, rooms with four bunks, 8 bunks and everything inbetween. When we got to the very well proportioned kitchen he explained that breakfast is provided, free cereal, toast, tea and coffee – I have never had this in a hostel before. The kitchen led to an outdoor area for chilling out if the weather is nice – have a bbq, a few beers and of course somewhere to hang your wetsuit after surfing your brains out, a long kayak or just a swim at West Strand!

Colette made it clear surfers, and people wanting to learn to surf, were the type of people they wanted to attract – ‘surfers who come to Portrush are generally nice people here for a good laugh and a good nights rest – we want to provide them with exactly that.’

Its seemed only natural Alive Surf School and the hostel teamed up to provide the best value deal in Northern Ireland – one nights accommodation and one surfing lesson for £32.50.
