The hostel accommodation is basic, same as all the other ones I have visited in Scotland, but it does the job. There is a kitchen and TV lounge, but you probably wouldn't spend that much time in the place anyway. It has a curfew, closing the door at 11.45pm, but it is not that strict as most people will be in the Mishnish along the road which calls last orders at that time during the week.

I was in a six-bed female dorm on the second floor, which provided a lovely view over the harbour. The room was large with plenty of space. There is a comfortable TV lounge with lots of magazines, newspapers, tourist info, etc. The kitchen is well-equipped and was uncrowded. There are plenty of shops close by to stock up on supplies. The dining room was comfortable and relaxing. There is a laundry and drying room. If it ever stops raining long enough, there is an outdoor seating area. No Internet access. I found the hostel to be very clean. When I was there in September 2003, it was quiet. On my second night, I had the whole dorm room to myself.
The hostel turned out to be good for cyclists. There is a bike store, and the hostel rents out bikes (I think it was something like 10 pounds a day). The receptionist was very helpful in suggesting local walks in the area.
My only complaint was the showers - they produced about as much water as a dripping tap and tended to be either cold or lukewarm.
It was £11 per night when I stayed there in September 2003. Check-out is by 11am. Check-in is from 5pm. The hostel closes at 11:45pm.
