Best experience ever! Christine and her family are lovely! Always trying to make you feel at home and making plans with the staf like fishing or dinners.The staf is amazing and you really make good friends. It's like a big family. Always meeting nice people in the hostel, to go out or have a good conversation. Easy work and enought time to explore the island. It's a good oportunity to improve english. I really hope to return as soon as posible.
Traveling to Stornoway was the best experience I could have, Christine and her family are the greatest host, friendly, great communication, great friends!
The Hostel is very nice and cosy, I met people everyday even that it was low season, the work is easy and gives you time to explore the islands. Great for somebody looking for an adventure somehwere remote with beautiful landscapes and beaches
The Heb Hostel is not just a perfect place to stay, but it's full of the most beloved people I have ever met. Everyone in the family is so kind and helpful. They make all in their power to make you have the best time. Since you feel almost like a part of the family there is no time at all for being homesick :)
I really enjoyed all the possibilities that I got there and miss all of them!
I would totally recommend to stay in the Hostel because (for my first world packers experience) it was so much better than I could have imagined. I had the best time and I'm sure that I'm coming back! X
Christine and her family treat you like their own family almost! They are very charming and lovely people. They take care of you and help you whenever you need. I totally recommend going to Heb Hostel because wherever you go you will find a beautiful scene and because the greats moments with people of the hostel you will bring with you.
