Great wee hostel with apartment accommodation as well. Residents lounge is also available. Comfortable beds and handy for the harbour. Local amenities are all well within easy walking distance. Cooking facilities are available too - in both the apartment and the smaller rooms.

A clean and cozy hostel with a relaxed atmosphere. My fellow guests were polite and friendly and the decor was homely. Well located and in all very good considering the price. Would definitely stay again if I was to visit Kirkwall in future.

I haven't got much to say, I only stayed one night and spent most of the day out exploring. The facilities were clean and had everything you needed, bunks were comfy. There was a TV in the room and free WiFi. A bonus for me were lockers where you could leave your bags once you had checked out...there aren't any...

We rented the "hoose" which is a two bedroom apartment very close to the ferry terminal from Westray. It was very clean, modern, bright, and comfortable. The four of were very comfortable and would be delighted to return if we are ever in the area again. The stove/oven setup was huge, brand new, and beautiful. We had all we needed....

We (=husband, 9-yo daughter and me) stayed for 3 days in this lovely hostel. We've got our own room with 2 bunk beds and even though we arrived an hour earlier than check-in, there was no problem with us getting the room (thank you for that, Chris!). The room was clean, as well as the toilettes and well-equipped kitchen. We've...

Hello . Firstly let me say how sorry I am that your 30th did not go as planned. As you know I did ask you and your friends to respect the hostel rules and the comfort of other guests. We do not "ban" alcohol in moderation but, unfortunately, on this occasion, we received a number of complaints from other residents...

Jim and I stayed 2 nights at the start of a golf/cycling challenge from North Orkney to Paris. It was well located with everything, including the interesting harbour, within walking distance.

An enjoyable 5 night stay. The hostel was spotlessly clean due to the daily hard work of Chris the owner. Bright bathrooms and kitchens and a cosy common room. An ideal central base from which to explore the Orkneys. Our first visit to the islands but we will be back.

“Finding the Hostel/Bothy - Google maps pinpoint is not entirely accurate. Arriving off the night boat at 23:00 we spent a good 10-15 minutes on foot searching for location with GPS. Instead you should locate the roundabout 200 meters away that joins Ayre Rd. with Burgh Rd.”
