    Far and away BEST hostel I have ever stayed in, in Scotland. Carl and Lorna very caring and genuinely concerned for all. Recommend to anyone who is on a budget and needs a clean and safe place to bed down. The greatest.

    Having never stayed in a youth hostel before, I wish I had! Our hosts were truly a special couple who made everyone feel welcome and at home. The atmosphere was cosy and homely and spotlessly clean. And being on the beach just added that extra special quality. Will definitely be back again.

    This was my lifetime personal best stay at any hostel in the world. The two managers are absolutely brilliant, the place is spotless, and could not be in a better location. Don't miss the Port Charlotte hostel!

    Karl and Lorna could not do anymore to make you feel welcome. Information on the Distilleries, in fact, anything on the island! I was many years ago a member and this hostel is first class, we could not have been any happier. We will definitely return!!!

    We had a lovely stay in the Port Charlotte Islay Youth Hostel. The staff was excellent and very helpful. Although it was more an oversight on my part than any fault of the hostel, we did not realize that the private room had a bunk bed rather than a double bed for my husband and I.

    Friendly helpful atmosphere. Great location, right on the beach! So peaceful, great clean air - had loads of energy. Well organised large kitchen. It's up the stairs to get into the hostel, only two showers and three loos but I never had to wait somehow. I had a lovely time there and enjoyed my stay v much. Thanks. I'll be back. Sheila
