The hostel was a very convenient base for my Shetland visit. It is very close to the Lerwick centre. The facilities here are very good - large kitchen, dining room, TV lounge etc were all very clean and perfectly usable. The other guests were also good nurtured and it felt completely safe to stay in. The kitchen has a microwave in addition to all the other stuff, which meant I could get microwave meals from Tesco to save myself the hassle.
The reception staff was extremely helpful and friendly.
The only downsides I felt were the small lockers in the dorm - I was expecting something larger than a shoebox where you'd struggle to fit in a small backpack - and the other minor issue was the lack of food service -you have to go to the next door building to get breakfast if you wanted.
I'd happily stay here again if I visited Shetlands.
