This hostel was easy to find and had a well equipped kitchen. The private rooms were really nice and there was a cosy living room. We only stayed one night which was fine because the town of Broadford isn't too interesting. It is however close to the mainland which is good if you are traveling from a ways away.


Lovely welcoming hostel with cosy rooms and really good facilities (e.g. very well equipped kitchen, separate showers etc). I loved the bright colours and the beds all had comfy mattress toppers. Receptionist was awesome, and the hostel was easy to find, even when arriving in horrible weather! Could do with some more local maps/pamphlets/bus timetables, but otherwise everything was great!


Thanks for a funky and friendly stay at broadford - colourful place and characters, everything you need for comfort and well organised :-)

We stayed there for one night and there was really nothing to complain about. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone who travels up to the isle of skye.


The accomodation is absoloutely fine, especially for the very good price! The only thing to mention is that it is good to be prepared to the very rare bus service in the low season...

Do not judge a book by its cover. Very cosy,warm and Well-equipped hostel in Broadford. The town offers everything you need (groceries, fuel ) and therefore the value is amazing. Nice social room and friendly staff.vWould go any time again.


I would highly recommend this hostel if you are looking for a home away from home! The staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, with great facilities including the lovely clean showers and large sitting area with a tv and a wide selection of dvds! The hostel has a nice quirky feel with hand painted murals throughout and also a very friendly tom cat that is more than happy to sit on your lap and snuggle up to you! I would say this hostel is great value for money. Dont believe the bad reviews!


The hostel staff (Tete) were very friendly. We found the bed very uncomfortable and coupled with a very noisy hostel we slept very poorly. We have been travelling around scotland and sleeping in the Scottish YHA so compared to these this hostel was not good value for money and wont stop here again when we return to Skye, which is a shame as the one member of staff was very helpful.
