Orcades Hostel


Orcades Hostel, Kirkwall, Orkney, KW15 1RS

    Modern, comfortable and friendly new Orkney hostel opening April 2009. Excellent base for exploring our beautiful windswept isles.

    We are situated next to the sports centre and within easy walking distance of all the shops, pubs, eateries, historic town centre and all transport links.
    We have 9 rooms, all with en-suite toilet/shower (1 double, 1 twin and 7 multiple bed rooms) and there is an extra toliet/shower room. You can also book a private room, subject to availability. All cosy, clean bedrooms have brand new beds and mattresses with ample room for luggage in underbed drawers and wardrobe space to hang clothes up if desired.

    There is a brand new kitchen fully equipped including oils and spices and a stylish lounge room with large freeview TV, DVD and free internet access. We also provide drying facilities and storage lockers for valuables. There is a large, mature garden with a burn running through it for guests to enjoy also.

    We will try our best to help you with any information and advice about Orkney and look forward to meeting you!
