Thank you 


Longstone Lodge, opened in May 2018, is hostel style accommodation, which aims to provide quality yet affordable lodgings for visitors to our unique islands.  There is a mixture of private and dormitory bedrooms, most with en-suite bathroom facilities.  A spacious communal kitchen and lounge/diner is available for guests as well as a laundry and drying room. We offer singles, twins, four and five bed family rooms and a six bunk bed dorm, although travel cots and children’s roll out beds are also options. You could also come for a special event and book the whole kit and caboodle!

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!
