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. Chris, the owner was very helpful. The twin room was a fair size, had a good outlook and was comfortable. The communal kitchen and bathroom and shower room were...

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.

This hostel has an excellent location near the bus station, Center and local facilities. The rooms and all hostel facilities are very tidy and clean at all times. Chirs is a really friendly host and made our stay pleasant.

I live on one of the smaller isles and I always stay at the Peedie Hostel when I need to overnight in Kirkwall. Very reasonable prices, clean, warm and comfortable rooms. The owner couldn't be more helpful either. Highly recommended.

The Peedie Hostel is a great hostel offering great value for your money. The bedrooms are very nice with comfortable bed, there are equipped kitchens, great bathrooms and a common room which is surprisingly nice and cozy for a hostel. It is not too far from the ferry terminal and you can check-in even late at night, when you arrive...

The Peedie Hostel was the perfect base for our trip to Orkney. Nice rooms, very clean and well equipped bathrooms and kitchens, with a wahing maschine, and even lockers, sheltered outside, which we found very handy, to store a couple of things when we went to one of the smaller isles for some nights. The hostel is very close to...

Stayed at "the hoose" which is part of the hostels..... Fantastic flat ~ modern, spotless, great location, great facilities including laundry. No complaints... Next to bus station, few mins walk from shops, pubs and restaurants ~ great base for touring island as there is so much to do ANC see. Great value would highly recommend.

This place has everything you need. Good beds, clean kitchen and spotless bathroom. It's located in the centre of Kirkwall and has everything we needed. The staff were quite flexible, even when we arrived earlier than check-in time. I will definitely come back here!

We had a great, though brief, stay at the Peedie Hostel, and at 15 GBP per person per night, I would highly recommend this to budget travellers. The cozy hostel felt more like staying in a friend's apartment than at a hostel. The kitchen and bathroom were clean and homey. The kitchen had everything you need to cook your own...

“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.”
