ABOUT THE PROPERTY
The Peedie Hostel (Peedie is an Orcadian word meaning 'small') is a quaint hostel overlooking the harbour in the town of Kirkwall, and lies within easy strolling distance of the town centre and local attractions including Kirkwall's magnificent medieval Cathedral.
The hostel is housed in two recently renovated fishermen's cottages, to provide a touch of luxury at a budget price.
Most rooms have views over Kirkwall harbour, Kirkwall Bay or the Peedie sea looking across to Wideford Hill.
Our pricing policy is simple. We charge £15 per bed per night (so 2 people in a twin bedded room would be £30 per night) except single rooms which are £20 per night. You choose the room configuration that suits you best.
Cyclists & motorcyclists (there is a courtyard in the grounds of the hostel where you can leave bikes/motorbikes), back-packers and budget travellers.
