This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed at...and I've stayed at a lot. The living area and kitchen are bright and spacious, the rooms are private, every single room in the hostel was super clean, plus the wifi actually worked in the rooms which is rare for a hostel. Plus the owner is very accomodating and knows a lot about the area/Orkney Islands, and there is an extensive DVD and book collection as well as a TV to watch in the living room. Highly recommended!!!
