Liked: The staff were helpful, friendly and genuinely interested in their customers. Help was immediately on hand when trying to work out how to switch the cooker on. We used the drying room and it worked for us - our stuff was dry the next day apart from our boots (but they were sodden and weren't expecting them to be dry). Can't fault the hostel. Top notch staff!

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Smaller hostel which has just been recently renovated. People staying are other hill walkers - not staying up late and making a noise. Very helpful and friendly staff (Pat) who knew the island and had plenty of recommendations. Hostel was very clean and tidy, very welcoming atmosphere. I would recommend this hostel to others, and would stay here again.
