What is a Hostel?

Hostels provide self catering accommodation with shared living areas. Sleeping accommodation is in private bedrooms or dormitories. The latter 'Dorm' where friends or individuals share a room which usually consists of bunk beds. Hostels are available to individuals and can also be hired exclusively by a group. Hostels are the only form of self catering accommodation where you can book by the night for stays as short as one night. Hostels generally provide all bedding and linen, but bring your own towel and toiletries.

A hostel is a friendly place to stay where fellow guests will chat to you in the kitchen. 

So, if you like the idea of a different type of holiday on the Isles of Scilly, come and visit us, we look forward to welcoming you at Longstone Lodge, Scilly's first hostel!
