This is a well run and well equipped hostel in an excellent location. Easy access to shops. Views over the bay and good access to other Skye attractions. The kitchen is well kitted out and shower/washing facilities are sound. A comfortable lounge and dining area.

Having stayed at this hostel some ten years ago I was looking forward to a return visit as I recall it was a first class hostel. My wife and I booked a twin room with a sea views and were travelling as part of a larger group. I was surprised at the cost of the room at £171 for three...

The original plan was to camp on Skye but we decided to go for a youth hostel instead in order to avoid the devillish midges which are ferocious.

Stayed in a dorm room, that was cramped and quite noisy. The hostel needs to be updated, feels like it hasnt been updated in a long time. Its location isnt convenient if dont have a car. The staff were helpful. Is probably one of the most run down syha ive stayed in.

We had the attic room with the spectacular bay view, through a small window though. The shared bathroom was just next to our room, and few steps further for the toilet.

This place is excellent for travelling on a budget. The price is very friendly and the quality is so much better than what I have seen for a higher price. We have stayed in a room with four beds, which was a bit small for this, but not too crammed. The common areas were nice, not particularly atmospheric, but they...

Room was okay for a short stay. The hostel is not near anything and quite a walk from the main road (public transport) especially in the rain. I found the staff member that served us to be very strange. The hostel is boring with no atmosphere. Good if you just want to catch up on sleep.

Very cramped dorms and lacking in atmosphere or character. Ok for a cheap overnighter but not a comfortable base to explore Skye, even if you're used to the hostel style of lodging. Facilities are on par with all SYHA hostels, and fairly clean for a busy hostel. The location is quite good with a nice footpath into town and a...
