What our visitors say on TripAdvisor

'A Delight'

Stayed here for one night last September, which was my mistake - I should have stayed longer. Don't be fooled by the size of Papay; there's plenty to see on this tiny paradise. The awesome plane journey from Kirkwall is just the start. The hostel is a former B&B so has a lovely sun lounge and several large, en-suite rooms for an unbelievably cheap rate... - gemmarama, Glasgow

'What an amazing place!'

Determined that we travel on the shortest scheduled flight in the world my partner insisted we come to Papa Westray. There is only one place to stay so it felt a little like Hobsons choice especially as this is, officially a hostel. I could not have been more wrong. It is extremely comfortable, well appointed and simply amazing. It is a cross between being welcomed into a friends home, being at one's own home and in a good hotel. En-suite shower rooms, very good central heating (this is Orkney even in July), comfortable beds, nice lounge and good kitchens. One of the loveliest things was the good company, capped off by Jennifer who manages the hostel and made it feel like home. While we were there we were invited to join local families to an arts evening; music and film. Exceptional experience. Only downside was the rain, but it is the Orkney Islands. Value for money? Absolutely amazing... Caroline_Berkshire

'Brilliant Place'

Don't let the name hostel put you off. Apart from the usual hostel facilities, you can have your own room with an en-suite. There are two large, well-appointed kitchens, a supermarket next door (...) We stayed there 2 nights and both meals were excellent. It's only a 10 minute walk to the airfield and Jennifer will offer to drive you to the ferry terminal for a minimal sum. The island itself is beautiful, and the hostel very well placed for walks.... WestH, London
