This hostel was better than any hotel. We stayed in a double bedroom , room was big and also was the bathroom. Everything was clean, cozy and new. I always thought that hostels are small,full of people and unatractive but this hostel was amazing. People were kind and helpful. I would love to go back :). Hostel was well situated... More

We booked a double room with private bath. The room was as good as if not better than many 3 or 4 star hotels I have stayed in. Lovely decorated and spacious. Warm and welcoming helpful staff. A well equipped and clean kitchen. We did not use the lounge other than to eat breakfast but it looked well equipped. Location... More

My room at Orcades Hostel was spacious and I liked that it was not right in the center of town but close enough to be convenient for those without cars. I had a pretty view from my window of a farm area and the room was clean and comfortable. The tourist information center is about a 15 minute walk away... More

This was my second stay at this hostel and I have to say that if anything it was better than the first. The owners are so friendly and go the extra mile to help, the bunks are comfortable ensuring a good nights sleep and the showers hot and powerful so important after a hard day rambling over the wonderful sites...

My son and I were on a Haggis tour of Scotland and stayed here. Wow what a great place. Everything that you could want in a backpackers. The rooms were like a motel with every comfort. The owners were very obliging and friendly. A great dining are and lounge room with Tv games and books.

I wasn't sure I could believe the rave reviews about this hostel but having stayed 6 nights, we found it to be all true. It is better than the last B&B I stayed in. If I had any reservation about it, it would be that it is a 20 minute walk into the centre of Kirkwall. For a pair of... More

Had a great stay here. The rooms were clean, comfortable and had nice ensuites. We stayed in a 6 dorm with 4 and had no problems. Heating was good although we didn't need it. The kitchen was more than sufficient and the dining/tv and chill area was great with heaps of board games. Very friendly staff and short walk to... More

Spent a few nights here with work, 27/28 May, and have nothing but praise for the hostel. Rooms are well furnished and decorated to high standard. My own double room came complete with kettle, hair dryer and Flat Screen tv, though the weather was so nice I was out exploring most the time. Communal area is again well equipped with... More
