Eleven of us stayed here for four nights B&B in August 2007. The blokes stayed in room 99 which overlooked the bay -beautiful views! Bunk beds as you'd expect - but a lovely room with en suite separate shower, toilet and sink.
The hostel overall is above average. Very clean. Spacious. Recently renovated to good standard. The buffet style breakfast was good quality and eat as much as you like (cereal, fresh orange, apple, fruit, cheese, toast, beans, hash brown, bacon, croissant, chocolate croissant, tea coffee hot chocolate). We had evening meal on three nights again good wholesome food -good portions and good value. We had our final evening meal at the restaurant part way up the hill on the way up from Gorey - Castle Green Gastropub - highly recommended for home prepared good quality food. They do some unusual dishes as well as some excellent value basics such as burger and fish and chips.
One thing that made our stay so pleasurable was the hostel staff - every one went 'the extra mile' to be pleasant, polite and helpful - it makes such a difference :o). The hostel has a TV lounge (a bit small given the size of the hostel), a games room with table tennis and pool, a kitchen for self catering, a dining room, and a conference style room. The only thing missing was a common room or TV free lounge for chatting, reading relaxing. There are extensive grounds surrounding the hostel - some used by those who prefer to camp.
The hostel is situated up the steep hill from Gorey Pier - about a 10-15min walk. You can get the No. 1 bus from St Helier or the Green Explorer bus. The bus service across the Island is excellent and very reliable. They do an unlimited 5 day pass for £22.
The hostel is on the east side of the island. Gorey Pier and castle are worth a visit so are the bays around the island. We especially like Plemont Bay and the coastal paths to other bays east and west -highly recommended -but on the north west of the island.
You can hire bikes at the hostel.
Remember though - this is a youth hostel you are staying in - not a hotel or B&B
