A typical classic hostel with old but functional furnitures, it has a interesting fireplace as well. The owner, peter, is very friendly and funny. The view is very spectacular with amazing lake view while the facilities is proper enough. The wifi coverage could be improved though, and this hostel is located in a quite distance from famous attractions in isle... More

Our stay at the Flora Macdonald Hostel was simply great. Peter is such a lovely person and the hostel offers everything you need to have a cosy evening after a day outside: clean toilet and kitchen, really cosy beds and linens and a really great view with horses in front and the ocean in the background. We had a fantastic... More

This is the first time I have stayed in an hostel so I don't have anything to compare it with. However I found the beds comfortable, kitchen well equipped, lovely long lounge with the aforementioned views. I enjoyed my chats with the owner, Peter. I would like to mention that the reviewer of 28.9.14 must have been reviewing another place.... More

Good points: 1) En suite toilet and shower in each dorm. 2) Separate male and female dorms, for those worried of mixed dorms 3) View to die for, facing a water body. We missed it when we checked in, because of the weather, so pleasantly surprised the next morning, when the sun was shining bright. 4) Owners were nice and... More

We stayed at the hostel for a week while at a course at the university and it was a very good choice. Lovely warm welcome, comfortable facilities and good mattresses and shower. We stayed in the private 4 bed dorm. It was really good having a fully equipped kitchen. It was a treat waking up each day to such a... More

Great location and incredible view. It was quiet and cozy. The wifi didn't work when we were there, and we were a bit confused when we arrived because no one was there to greet us in the office. The main bunk area was in a bit of an upheaval (we found out that they were in the midst of setting... More
