Stayed few times before and it is always a pleasure.
nice staff. money for value...and the other way around
My wife and I decided to save some money and stay here for a night. On checking in, the staff was great. It was an easy walk down to the main street to get a bite to eat and walk around on the harbor. Our stay overnight was just bad though. We were in a 6 bed mixed dorm. We shared the room with 4 other guys. One of them stumbled in drunk at 1am, turned the light on, and groaned and farted all night. Another let his alarm go off for 5 minutes at a time, about 8 times in the morning. Ugh.
Very clean hostel, staff were very friendly & even baked scones as part of breakfast, just a 4 minute walk from the ferry. Open fire & free WIFI very much a welcome as the nights get colder in Scotland
