Kirkwall Youth Hostel (SYHA)


Old Scapa Road, Kirkwall, Orkney, KW15 1BB

    A friendly and welcoming youth hostel close to the historic town of Kirkwall and beautiful 12th-century St Magnus Cathedral. A superb base for exploring Orkney.

    Kirkwall Youth Hostel is the perfect base to explore all that Orkney has to offer, whether you stay on the mainland or decide to go island-hopping!

    The youth hostel is in a quiet location, a 15 minute walk away from Kirkwall town centre and Scapa Beach, and only 10 minutes away from the local shops. The youth hostel comes with a large, fully equipped self-catering kitchen as well as a good-sized dining room and a cosy lounge area which are ideal for relaxing and socialising. Internet access is also available.

    Kirkwall Youth Hostel is well-equipped for individual travellers, couples and groups (up to 35 people), and offers a range of private rooms.

    Apart from stunning scenery and a treasure of Neolithic and Viking heritage, Orkney offers a wealth of festivals: from the big ones like the Orkney Folk Festival in May and the St Magnus Festival in June, to the internationally acclaimed Science Festival in September, and the more intimate Storytelling Festival in October.

    Year round there is an abundance of wildlife to watch, from seals to whales, and from otters to thousands of seabirds. Come early or late in the season, and you may very well be able to see the Northern Lights!
