Immaculately clean, spacious and modern inside. Two lounges, both with free computers/internet, and large kitchen and dining room. Great value.
I stayed here for three nights and it became a home from home especially when I was holed up in Lerwick for the day after a flight was called off. So much nicer to have the full run of a house, as such, rather than just have a room in a B&B. Only downside [and it's a very small one] is that the reception is manned for limited hours per day for cost reasons so I had to check in via the community centre over the road. The dormitory I was in was large as well but, again, this didn't bother me really. Just a few minutes walk into the town centre.
Even if you wouldn't ordinarily consider a youth hostel you should cast aside your prejudices and try this one!
