Great hostel. Very clean and organised. Kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment and had designed areas for traveler's food. Bathroom was clean and they even offered free toiletries if you needed something. The dining and living area was cosy and there were lots of games and books to read. The owners were very friendly and more than willing to give you advice on what to do on the island.Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone staying on the Isle of Skye. Felt like being at home.


The stay at this hostel was outstanding!

Really enjoyed our stay at Skyewalker! Lisa and Brian (and family) were great hosts, took their time to give us some tips about walks around Portnalong or have a little chat; and they seemed to be really passionate about this hostel. The facilities are very good as well and the location is definitely worth the little bit of previous organization for getting there, even without car. Probably one of the best hostel I've stayed in!
