Nice Hostel in the center of Stromness

Reviewed on October 7, 2019

The facilities of this hostel are great, very good kitchen, well equipped. Nice Lounge with a view. Bathroom at the lower floor was a bit simple, but clean and working. It is a 5mn walk to the travel center (bus stop and the ferry terminal).

Three of us stayed here for 3 nights when we were over for a fishing trip. The hostel was a great base for us, very friendly, with all the facilities we required and handy for all the shops, pubs etc, whilst also enjoying a great atmosphere due to its position looking out over the harbour.
