“Nice hostel”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The couple that own the hostel are very nice. Stayed here for 3 nights and was very clean and comfortable with T.V in the room. It is right in the centre of Kirkwall. Quite basic but worth the money. There is a washing machine and dryer if need be and only costs £1 per go. Tesco's is only round the corner as is the bus station. Nice place to stay.

We only stayed here overnight on a cycle trip around the Orkney Isles, and as much as we loved the entire trip, the only regret was not staying here longer. First off, the price just can't be beaten! And what you get for that price is, quite frankly, amazing! A lovely place, very well equipped, clean and tidy, in a great location with lovely views and, well... just perfect. Check in and out was easy, although we never got to meet the owners, which is unfortunate, going by the comments made by others in the reviews, but... maybe next time. I will most certainly be back!

We stayed two nights at Pediee Hostel and we liked it. The rooms are quite basic, but very clean. The kitchen has everything you need therefore very good for self catering. I gave only 4 stars because there was not much of a communal room and chance to meet people which is one of the great things of hostels. I would recommend this hostels for its very good price/quality.

I travelled to Kirkwall in September 2013 and we stayed here. It was basic and very good. Very clean. It was a little cold in Orkneys at the time but the hostel kept us nice a warm - we had control of our own heat in our room. There were only two other people staying in the hostel when we were there - and were both over 50. It is not a party hostel. The location was very easy to find, we actually found it when we were driving around, not even looking for it ("hey - there is our hostel!"). It was easy to walk anywhere "downtown" Orkney from the location. There was also free parking (on that note - if you travel to Orkeny it is essential to rent a car). We were out exploring the island so much we were only here to sleep anyway. If you are planning to stay within your room for part of the trip you might as well spring for a hotel, but this was great for our purposes.

I will stay here again next time I visit the Orkneys.

Stayed in the Hoos a separate two bedroom self catering apartment. Had everything you need and well equipped.

Great location, easy to find, off street parking for motorbike and great communications with the owners.

Highly recommend this great value alternative to over priced hotels.
