The location was fine, though I might recommend Portree more as it has better access to tours and buses to other cities. One major issue was that the kitchen was locked during hours it was supposed to be open, particularly in the morning. This made leaving on time for activities difficult. The wifi is also very temperamental. No breakfast, but... More

Hi there and many thanks for your review of our hostel. I'm sorry the kitchen was not open on time during your stay. Please be assured this has been addressed and it is opened each morning at 7:00 am. For guests needing to leave before this, alternative food storage is available (along with tea & coffee facilities) but 7:00 is... More

Stayed here one night whilst in Skye but it's what you expect from a hostel in Scotland. The furniture looks like what you would find in a charity shop (I.e. Cast offs from the locals...nothing wrong with that but typical for Scottish youth hostels) The room (no. 8) was ok, but there was mould around the windows which gave the... More

This is a basic but friendly hostel on the amazing island of Skye and was a good base for a weekend of mountain climbing & cycling. The hostel needs some attention and is a little shabby but it was cheap enough. The beds in our twin room were saggy with faded sheets but it was nice and clean. As a... More

When me and my friends arrived at night, we were shock to find this hostel is next to the Funeral Director office. I don't really care, but my friends are terrified when they see hearse. Hahahaha.

Nice relaxed staff, friendly and helpful with ideas of what to do on the island. Warm and very comfortable beds, better than most hostels. Amazing warm showers, and a tree swing. Nice places to relax like a lovely lounge area and a BBQ and fire pit downstairs. Free coffee and tea. Would come here again.

First of all, there are certainly some good things about this hostel: - It almost always has beds available as it comes in far behind the likes of Skyewalker and SYHA Glenbrittle in the quality stakes. (I have stayed at both of these other hostels too.) - The staff are genuinely friendly. - The showers are good! Unfortunately, there are... More

I stayed in this hostel for 7 weeks, we were given a nice bright room far away from the living room so it was nice and quite. The beds were very comfy, and the rooms are kept clean and tidy :), the hostel has a nice chilled out vibe. The kitchen can get busy but it is functional and very... More
