We couldn't find any beds on the whole island and this place accepted us at 11pm at nite. Beds were clean, rooms clean, decent shower and good kitchen. Close to bank, shop, garage, sea and amazing mountains.. Can't really fault this place as a backpackers but does share a building with a funeral director which is a bit weird with...

Hi Sunny, I'm glad I was able to help! Pre-booking on skye is definitely recommended. You can always give us a call if you need a bed, as we do not sell all of our accommodation online. I hope to see you back again soon.

We stayed in the hostel for a night in June. It was quite busy but all the staff and people who stayed there were extremely nice so it didn't feel packed at all. We enjoyed the lovely garden with a swing and a fireplace and a cool living room with lots of space. The hostel has their own hens wondering...

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review of our hostel, and I'm happy you had a comfortable sleep on our new beds and mattresses. The kitchen does close at 22:30 for fire safety reasons, but tea/coffee and food storage are available 24 hours. We look forward to welcoming you back!

One of the cheapest places around. Ugly interior (the classic psychedelia hostel theme) and horrible logo. The reception is not opened during the afternoon, even of the staff is there its impossible to check in before 17:00, the lift is out of order and have tured into a creepy place where they store the cleaning stuff, interesting... There is a...

Hi there, and thank you for taking the time to leave a review about our backpackers hostel I'm glad you felt was good value. I'm sorry you don't like our logo or decor, however the majority of feedback we get on this is positive. Check in is officially from 17:00 and ideally we would like guests to arrive at this...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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.

From the front this place looks like nothing but you'll be pleasantly greeted by a member of staff and a very clean premises upon entry.

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...
