I stayed two nights here and I would stay again. Although I had a mixed experience of comfort, on the first night the room got kind of cold through the night and the shower was lukewarm and on the second night the room was nice and warm as well as the shower. There is a well stocked spar and petrol station very close to the hostel which is very handy. Durness beach and smoo cave are close to the hostel. Overall the beds, bathrooms and kitchen were clean and suitable. As the hostel is part of a wider hospitality business group, I would imagine the standard of the hostel wouldn't ever fall too much so I think it would always be a safe bet. It looks much nicer from the outside than the other closest hostel. The best thing about this hostel was the sheltered terrace with a view of the Ocean, really beautiful.
