We spent one night here and we weren't disappointed. A really lovely hostel, warm and homely and the guy who runs it ewan is really welcoming. The best bit about the hostel is the view of the loch and the wee beach plus the village of stromeferry (no ferry) is quiet and peaceful. Really clean and fresh room plus breakfast...

Wooden bunks (rather than the typical prison-style metal cage), several clean bathrooms, lots of hot water in the shower, very (very!) friendly hosts ... simply perfect! The price includes a small breakfast (toast, cereals, and your typical beverages), the common room is cozy and there also is a nice outside sitting area. Only 15 minutes by car to Eilean Donan...

We were looking for a cheap accomodation just outside Skye Island and we arrived there almost by chance. What a nice find! Although the location is pretty remote (no grocery store within 20 miles..so plan your food before arriving !) It is also a beautiful setting with a magnificient view and really cozy atmosphere in the living room! The kitchen...

A warm welcome, we stayed 3 nights, very comfortable. Beautiful views across the loch and within easy reach of Skye, Torridon and many munros! They even provide breakfast. If it's chilly then the wood stove soon warms up the room. A very good place to stay.

I had a great time! The breakfast is tasty and the kitchen spacious. Also the owner is a friendly guy! I stayed with 3 friends and we had a room to ourselves with our own bathroom. It was tidy and in a lovely location. Also downstairs is a comfortable area with couches and games. It felt more like a bed...

My husband and I stayed at this hostel Friday to Monday. We had a lovely and comfy ensuite room on the top floor. The hostel is well equipped, clean and friendly.

“Tips & Tricks: Bring some things to cook! Try asking around the butchery and seeing if they have local dishes for you to try your hand at and spend some time in the kitchen. There aren't any good take-out places nearby but that's sort of the point isn't it? The hostel is quite clean, didn't even have to unroll a sleeping bag. There is a window to the left of the fireplace in the living room with a tartan cushion. This is the perfect place to watch the sun come up and spot some otters without having to leave the warmth of indoors. Ask them to strike up a bonfire! Don't spend all of your time on you computer! Yes they have wifi but they also have miles of hiking trails and great Scottish hospitality, take advantage!”

“one room has two beds, one room has six, and two (i believe) have 4- so they should be able to accommodate any size group whether it be a couple or a group of friends.”
