As with all of Scotland, if any of your party are rather tall, no bed will be very comfortable for them. However, for the average person, the beds are all great. Four of us stayed in the family dorm together and had a wonderful experience. Open a window and turn on the space heater provided, or it tends to get a wee bit stuffy at night.
Christine runs a clean, warm, and comfortable hostel in Stornoway. I would recommend staying at Heb Hostel to anyone making their way through Lewis. There are pay-to-use washers and dryers (two of each) in a well set-up laundry room at the back of the hostel, pay to use towels, and the beds/bathrooms are very clean and well cared for.
