“Recconmend”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

My husband and i have just spent a week in Kirkwall Peedie Hostel, Not used to sleeping in bunk beds. but they were very comfortable and clean. The room was was rather on the small size for two people, I appreciate it was a hostel , but there was no where to hang clothes except hooks on the wall, so lived out of the suit cases. The kitchens were very well supplied with all the usual stuff. Every one cleaned up after themselves which was a great help so the kitchens were always clean and tidy.
The hostel was 5mins from bus station and 5 mins from Ferry terminal. Had no complaints except for the constant banging of room doors , nobody seemed to realize that the doors could be shut quietly, Perhaps the owners could remained the residents not to bang doors at 6 am onwards, really annoying . Maybe a note on the doors could ask people to be more considerate of people still sleeping. All things considered would recconmend this Hostel.

The Peedie Hostel was the perfect base for our trip to Orkney. Nice rooms, very clean and well equipped bathrooms and kitchens, with a wahing maschine, and even lockers, sheltered outside, which we found very handy, to store a couple of things when we went to one of the smaller isles for some nights. The hostel is very close to the center and the bus station, also to the ferry terminals. The couple who run the hostel are very nice hosts.

Stayed at "the hoose" which is part of the hostels..... Fantastic flat ~ modern, spotless, great location, great facilities including laundry. No complaints... Next to bus station, few mins walk from shops, pubs and restaurants ~ great base for touring island as there is so much to do ANC see. Great value would highly recommend.

This place has everything you need. Good beds, clean kitchen and spotless bathroom. It's located in the centre of Kirkwall and has everything we needed. The staff were quite flexible, even when we arrived earlier than check-in time. I will definitely come back here!

We had a great, though brief, stay at the Peedie Hostel, and at 15 GBP per person per night, I would highly recommend this to budget travellers. The cozy hostel felt more like staying in a friend's apartment than at a hostel. The kitchen and bathroom were clean and homey. The kitchen had everything you need to cook your own meals. There were washing machines and dryers (or an outdoor clothes line if you prefer). We also made use of the lockers where you can leave your things for the day for a very reasonable 1 GBP. The bus station and tourist information centre is just around the corner. I would definitely stay here again.

Excellent accommodation, could not ask for a nicer, cleaner and friendly place to spend our 5 day trip in Orkney. Staff are extremely friendly and keep the place spotless. Rooms are nice and clean, fresh bedding and very comfortable. The kitchens are well stocked with everything you need! If you are going to Orkney then I would 200% recommend staying here.

We spent 4 days in the Hoos - fabulous, fully equipped, quiet and warm. It's in a great location next to the bus station, supermarkets and ferry terminal. Hosts left milk, coffee and tea as well as basic condiments, towels and all necessary cooking equipment. We had a very enjoyable stay, thank you!
