With the rising cost of hotel rooms this was the first time I have stayed in a hostle and was pleasently surprised, not only was the place well run, clean and comfortable it was so nice to meet and speak with so many nice people! there must be a great form of trust here as you dont get your privisy as you would with your own room in a hotel but if you just need to get a place to rest for a couple of nights and dont have to much luggage this would be the place to be, I was impressed with the kitchen area which supplied cerials and bread jams etc for you to make your breakfast if you wanted but you can bring in what you want and treat it like your own kitchen! There is 2 fridges to keep your items and most people leave stuff for others to use, there was even some free Beers and wine left by some previous guests! Its close to most things in Stornoway like the ferry port and Tesco and I would not hesitate to go back here!
