About Port Charlotte Islay Youth Hostel

The youth hostel has wonderful sea views from the common areas and a garden over looking the bay. There are very good facilities and is popular with families, cyclists, walkers and independent travellers.

Along with its outstanding natural beauty Islay is also famed for its diverse and plentiful wildlife, and is home to two RSPB nature reserves. With its excellent accommodation and facilities, the youth hostel (and the attached Wildlife Centre) is an ideal base from which to explore all that Islay has to offer - along with visits to neighbouring wild Jura.

Please note: The hostel is closed 10.00-14.00hrs. From 14.00hrs the common room is open and guests who have already checked-in will have access to their rooms.

Accommodation Information

The rooms all have a sink - the shared bathroom facilities are kept to a very high standard of cleanliness. The self-catering kitchen is spacious and very well equipped with all you will need to prepare your meals. This and the common room both have breathtaking views across the Bay of Loch Indaal. The reception area is flooded with light from the skylights. There is a great feeling of spaciousness in the common areas.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 3 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
