Situated on the picturesque shore at Uyeasound, this refurbished hostel combines superb facilities with a relaxed atmosphere. There is a kitchen, dining room, lounge, conservatory, coin operated laundry, showers (coin operated) and rooms with en suite facilities. A 5 berth caravan site with hook up electricity is a busy addition as well as a large garden where you can pitch a tent.
