This place is the best in terms of location that you can get! It's scenic and cut-off so gives you the holiday feel, yet the hostel atmosphere makes it a nice place to socialise. But it is quite difficult to stay in if you don't have a car. There are very few eating options in the village, esp for vegetarians, and you have to walk 45 mins to the next town to a supermarket if you wanna buy stuff to cook. The wifi sucks, and is slow whenever it rarely connects. Toilets don't flush properly.
Thanks for a great stay, very conveniently located, and comfortable beds. Would recommend this place to anyone visiting the Isle of Skye
Great hostel, loved the fire place - it came in handy as the rest of the hostel was rather cold. Good facilities and lovely staff. Wifi could be better as it didnt work in the rooms however this wasnt a big deal. Fantastic location if you have a car. My only complait would be the window in our room which was broken and letting in a cold draft in during the night. would stay here again without a doubt.
Location is a scenic small town and easily accessible from the mainland (right across the Skye Bridge), could easily make day trips off the island. Excellent staff and pleasant overall. Nowhere to lock valuables other than generally in your dorm room/caravan.
