Although Dunard Hostel is on the basic side (compared with the other hostels I stayed in on this trip to western Scotland), it's comfortable and has a great location. It's just a few minutes' walk from the ferry (turn left as you disembark) and overlooks the harbour of Castlebay.
The dorms aren't crowded, and I was lucky enough to have a whole 4-bed dorm to myself for a couple of days. Also, as it was at the front of the building, there was a wonderful view of the harbour and Kisimul Castle. The common room is large and has plenty of local information.
It's worth noting that Chris, the owner, isn't around much of the time, so make the most of the opportunity to sort anything out whenever you see him!
