In reply to An Triubhas:
I've not stayed in the Alpine Bunkhouse bit itself, but have stayed in the main hostel which is good quality. The couple that run the place are lovely - friendly and helpful and are also into the outdoors themselves so understand what folk want out of a bunkhouse if they're hitting the hills
Stayed there last December with people from Uni, and from what I remember the kitchen is a part of the main central room with the 3 bunk rooms off to the side. There was a decent hob with 4? rings I think and an oven. Was enough to feed 20 with curry and rice as well as sticky toffee pudding. I can't remember if there was a drying room, but there may well have been!
