About About this hostel

Eday is one of the wildest of the Northern Orkney islands. Wildlife thrives here and an on-island Ranger service offers guided walks and a large number of events through the year.

The hostel is run by the small volunteer group of ECA. It's an unmanned hostel so guests are able to come and go whenever they please. The hostel has great self-catering facilities, with disabled access, on-site community laundry and free WiFi. Towels are provided and there's no charge for electricity. The hostel is situated next to the on island electric car hookup and a local shop is only 15 minutes walk away. 

A Community Ranger is on site to help and organise guided walks which can be arranged by meeting you at the Ferry Terminal, but please arrange this in advance by phoning 0770 666 2377 or emailing ranger@edaypartnership.org
