Clean, good facilities, nice and friendly, FREE BREAKFAST! Couldn't have hoped for a better start to our holiday! Would definitely go back. We stayed in 2 other hostels whilst visiting the Outer Hebrides and this was the best by quite a stretch.

Central spot. Spacious rooms. Hot showers. Free breakfast: bread, cereal, coffee, tea etc... Very good value for money. Helpful staff. Only downside is parking but ample space nearby and crime is not really an issue here.

Christine and all the other staff are amazing. They keep the place very clean, are so welcoming, and full of information. It was quiet when I visited so the dorms were not completely full, which did not make balancing the bathroom difficult. However, I can see when the hostel is full and it is completely booked by a tour with everyone leaving at the sametime how it can be a bit frustrating, but this just require better coordination on the part of those staying in the dorm. It is also important that this is a hostel - not a hotel.

The women's dorm has quite the bathroom, which was very impressive. It had a seperate bath tub that was very tempting after coming back to the hostel after a long day of walking cold and wet. The whole hostel is warm and home-y, and one of my favourite hostels I've ever been to. There is a lovely coal fire in the evening. Laundry facilities and drying room out back. The kitchen is well equipped and more like one you have at home not an industrial type you find at some hostels. If the hostel is full and many are using the kitchen it may feel a bit small. Breakfast is included - toast, cereal, porridge, coffee, tea, etc. Nice location in Stornoway.

Room Tip: If you're female go for the female room - great bathroom! Male and female rooms are upstairs with the mixed dorm downstairs.

I love this hostel. This is the 4th time I've stayed there and it never fails to impress. Christine and her team keep this place unbelievably clean and make every effort to make you feel welcome. The female dorm is spacious and has the most amazing bathroom. Yes the kitchen may be small but that just encourages people to cook there only and then head to the common room to socialise. The people who use the hostel are always really nice which I think perpetuates the already friendly atmosphere. There is a reason why this place is always really busy, people will come back to quality. Thanks again Christine

Stayed here as part of a group. Wasn't exactly impressed. There were 29 of us travelling around, split into 3 rooms....10 to a room is not my idea of fun (especially when I'm paying more here than in some places where it's a 4 bed room)
only 4 toilets and 3 showers exist in the entire building, so they are always in demand.
the kitchen is very small, and gets crowded very quickly. The beakfast was basic to say the least.
Free wifi was one redeaming feature, as was the tv and dvd collection
with 10 people to a room, it stants to reason that you want to leave the wondows open at night, but with the slightest breeze the windows and shutters bang like crazy
Would have had a very different experience if there hadn't been a group of us staying there
