This was a fantastic hostel , amazing setting , very well equipped , John helpful and friendly - loved the extra touches of poems in unexpected places and gentle reminders to tred carefully on planet earth and oh what a beach and what an island - a special place where the veil between heaven and earth wears thin!

I visited with some of my postgrad friends for a winter getaway last year. It was one of the most peaceful experiences of my life. The beds are soft and clean, the sound of the surf is soothing at night, and the little wooden stove kept us all cozy in the living room. We made a dinner feast for our... More

Extraordinary location. Excellent facilities. Exhilarating beach walks. If anything, Scotland is even more beautiful in the so-called low season. The hostel was clean and fresh, with comfortable beds, plenty of bathrooms and lots of hot water. I was there with a private group for a course and it was an ideal set up. Cozy fire going in the main room... More

The enormous wooden table in the hostel's warm, spacious main room, with views out to sea, was the ideal place to teach a driftwood bookbinding workshop. Taking over the hostel for four nights meant total immersion in our creativity. The staff were patient, helpful and the most generous critics of our art work. The cooking facilities are great for large... More

I have just returned for a fabulous driftwood bookbinding course hosted at the Hostel, the perfect location, and what a wonderful place, the facilities are excellent, and the welcome warm and friendly. This was my first stay in a hostel, and `way` surpassed my expectations, hot showers and comfy bunks, and the wonderful beach a short walk away. John and... More

The hostel is located a beautiful, quiet walk away from the busyness of the Abbey. It is located by a secluded beach. I would highly recommend this hostel! (FYI, I did not realize the rooms were mixed). You may want to bring earplugs, as people obviously wake up at all different times.

Perfect place for some headspace and fresh air. Stayed here for a week in November - all weathers: sunshine, rainbows, showers and hail. The location is unbeatable. The sea is visible from the living area, and there are no buildings nearby, which makes you feel connected to the island without ever stepping outdoors. I was amazed to find functioning wifi... More

I stayed as part of a large group and we basically took over the whole place for a week. It was Quite a week and will be with me Forever! I was reassured at the quality of the place from the wee video clip and it is even better in real life. The beds were comfy and clean and the... More

me and my sister had a nice stay at Iona Hostel. The Rooms were clean and I like how they take care about nature! Near the Hostel is a wonderful beach with white sand and very colorfull stones! The only thing is that you have to walk for like half an hour from the Port to the Hostel. But on... More

My Friend & I stayed here for 2 days last month for a quick break. After a lovely drive north, making more than a few stops along the way at the many wonderful artist and craft stores along the way. We booked the small twin room which was great, especially as my friend hadn't stayed in Hostel before. It was... More
