One of the best hostels we've stayed at. It's clean and comfortable with excellent facilities and really helpful staff. Even the owners were around and eager to answer questions and offer advice. The kitchen is fully equipped and the beds are comfortable. Overall there is an excellent atmosphere. The location is nice as well - a bit secluded but within range of a lot of cool things!

Great welcome, Georgia was very nice and told to go to an excellent pub for the evening, probably our best night in scotland.

We enjoyed our two nights with Skyewalker - the facilities were of a high standard - clean, warm and comfortable, and the kitchen was very clean and tidy. We would have no hesitation in recommending Skywalker to others and would consider using again if we are on Isle of Skye in the future. Well done!

Never saw a hostel that was more clean! Excellent building and atmosphere. Owner was a really nice guy that chatted with us and gave travel advise. Due to the rural location they cannot offer wifi, that is probably the only downside. So plan ahead and gather your relevant information before travelling to Skye.

The staff member on reception was lovely. My room/ bed were comfortable and the bathrooms and communal areas were fine. The staff member directed me to a near-by pub which had excellent food and another that had live traditional music which I really enjoyed. There was plenty of parking.

Owners and staff were very helpful about recommendations for touring the Isle of Skye. Great location to see the sights. Great beach nearby at Talisker Bay.

The hoste in general is really nice. Its clean & tidy. U have access to kitchen & all cooking facilities (u just have to buy your own food), common room for activities is warm and cozy, bathroom and toilet are clean. The staff is really nice and helpful The only thing is its location is a bit far from Portree so u have to catch the bus and really carefull with its timetable. But the bus catches and drops u right in front of the hostel so it's quite convenient Will definitely come back here!
