Quite overcrowded and who puts a bedroom right next to the lounge? Kitchen also quite overcrowded. Rooms humid and stuffy. This hostel is popular with Europeans and they all smoke so the rooms end up stinking of smoke. No secure bike storage. Poor value at £20 per night. The hostels in the Outer Hebrides were much nicer and better value....

After completing the 128 km walk from Rubha Hunish to Broadford, this was a very cousy place to stay in. Fully equipped kitchen, clean showers, rooms just about what you would expect from a backpackers hostel. The "living room" was a nice place where walkers can meet and exchange their experience. One thing to watch out for: If you wake...

We stayed here 4 nights arriving around the time of last check in at 10.30pm. When we phoned ahead they handily left us the key and details at reception. The dorm room was small and stuffy (we had to keep the window and door open throughout the night). There were plenty of showers. The kitchen was generally well equipped (though...

Great hostel, with a great living room, it was a pleasure to read my book in there. There are books, DVDs and board games, three cumfortable sofas, some armchairs and a pouffe. There is a cuisine for the guests, a dining room. Laudry £6, sheets supplied. There are a lot of showers and toilets. The rooms are small, but it's...

Very close to a big Cooperative, a gas station. You have plenty of space to prepare your dinner and they have a big lounge and a very warm living room. Free- wifi. Very clean place and the team very helpful.

Beautiful place, great people and strategic location. Comfortable and cozy as well, and good sleeping quarters as well as clean. We stayed two nights and I think it was one of the better places in my trip around Scotland. But be aware of midges!

The pluses of this place is it's in a great location near Broadford bus stop, it was warm inside, the showers and facilities were pretty good, staff were friendly. Other than this, it's not that remarkable or interesting. I would recommend heading over to the Broadford Hotel on the main road to check out the bar, it's quite nice, otherwise...

Our group of 5 adults agreed that this was possibly our favourite hostel out of all those we stayed at during our entire Scotland road trip experience. It was clean and had a lovely kitchen and common room. The staff were also warm and friendly. This is definitely a good option when you're just starting out on the Isle of...

The hostel had very little ventilation in the room which was full of people who had been hiking for the last week. Wet sweaty clothes and bodies of ten people with no open windows really wasn't ideal. The hostel is quite run down and there was a problem with the lights in the showers,

I caught a bus directly to broadford from the ferry and then was just a short walk up the road. There is a servo, pub and cafe nearby for meals/necessities if you needed something. The beds were warm, showers hot & bathrooms clean. Kitchen had everything you'd need for a basic meal. Staff friendly and helped us out when enquiring...
