I missed Wi fi connection,but I guess that it is because of the location of hostel. The roads to reach skywalker hostel are not the best but are in the average of island. Excellent the person who made us check in. I do not understand why you can not check in later than 9 pm.It is too early. In general and having in account prices of other hostels in Skye, this is a very good choice.

Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The main reason our latest check in time is 9pm is to enable all guests, even the ones who fancy an early night, to have a good sleep without late arrivals disturbing them. We are also aware that many of our guests are not accustomed to driving on Highland roads and our 9pm reception closure encourages people to get here before it gets dark. Lastly, we are a family run business and we need our beauty sleep too!


We stayed only for one night but would have stayed longer. Staff was very helpful giving hiking advice. Very clean and cozy hostel with personality! We loved it!

You will just have to come back another time! Thank you for your braw review and we hope to see you again!


A lovely "family home" atmosphere set in exquisite surroundings. You're guaranteed a superb stay, either meeting people in very comfortable communal living areas or then spending peaceful time on your own.
