Property Description

Friendly and welcoming, Kirkwall Youth Hostel is in a quiet location, a 15 minute walk from Kirkwall town centre and Scapa Beach, and only 10 minutes from the local shops. It's the perfect base to explore all that Orkney has to offer.

Orkney is a Neolithic and Viking treasure trove, with many attractions like Skara Brae, Maes Howe and The Ring of Brodgar within walking distance of the youth hostel, or only a short drive away.

Apart from stunning scenery, Orkney offers a wealth of festivals - from the big ones like the Orkney Folk Festival in May and the St Magnus Festival in June, to the internationally acclaimed Science Festival in September, and the more intimate Storytelling Festival in October.

Year round there’s an abundance of wildlife to watch, from seals to whales, from otters to thousands of seabirds. Excellent scuba diving and fishing are also close by. Come early or late in the season, and you may very well be able to see the Northern Lights!

Kirkwall Youth Hostel is popular with groups, individuals and families looking for budget accommodation. There are good facilities including family and private rooms, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, a large drying room and laundry facilities.

Latest Review

" I stayed here for 2 nights and I came in on the late ferry. Reception closes at 10 pm but they were more than happy to stay late so that I could check in after the ferry. It's a little hard to find because it's set back off the street with houses in front of it but there is a sign on the road. I recommend taking a cab from the ferry. They upgraded my room for free though from a 4 bed to a 2 bed and I still had it alone. It's a 15 minute walk from town and was really nice. I would stay again. "
