Great little place, easy to hitchhike from, staff is friendly and not overbearing, showers were small but worked well! Had my room to myself the last night I was there which was awesome :)

Thanks so much for leaving us some feedback. Really nice to hear you had a great stay and got to enjoy what Skye had to offer!


Great hostel. Only problem was that Kyleakin is a little ways from the Trotternish Peninsula.

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to send us some feedback. Glad you enjoyed your stay!


Very good place all around. Clean, comfortable, safe. All the usual facilities - well equipped kitchen, good wifi, laundry services etc etc. You have to pay for breakfast though. The staff are excellent and very friendly. In addition to helping you find your way around Skye and seeing the best things, they're good for a beer at the pub. Just be aware that it's in Kyleakin which is very small and not near a lot of the more popular attractions. But still well worth it with lots of nice walks.

Hi Luke, Thank you for taking the time to leave some feedback. So glad you had a great stay and we hope to see you again sometime on Skye!


Cute little hostel in a beautiful village right at the base of the Isle. Nice to see a fellow Canuck at the reception! Will be coming back :)
