We were booked into the Heb Hostel and were pleasantly surprised. I have stayed in a hostel before and it was an experience I never wanted to repeat so I was dubious of how it would be.
When we had arrived Christine was friendly and very helpful. the Hostel is just 5 minutes walk from the ferry and is in the town so there are shops and bars nearby.
The rooms are cleaned everyday and they could not have done anymore to make our stay better. Stornoway is a beautiful place and Heb Hostel has everything you want at a low cost. It would be great if you are travelling yourself too as you could meet others there.
Only downside is the bars do shut early, 930-1030pm.
I would definitely recommend Heb to anyone :)
