    An amazing location for a gem of an hostel. The hostel is very clean and comfortable: the kitchen is spacious and all equipment are provided; the lounge room is a perfect place where to meet interesting people and the room was very cozy. The hostel is located in a wonderful valley, and the lack of wifi it's a great stimulus to enjoy nature and life at a different pace Overall, great value for money. I will definitely come back to this hostel at my next holiday in Skye.

    This cozy hostel in the middle of nowhere was exactly what I was looking for! Very kind staff, easy check-in/check-out, and plenty of space to use the kitchen resources. Good recommendation if you want to stay near the Fairy Pools.

    Beware, the location is great only if you're ready to walk or hitchhike if, like me, you're only travelling by bus :) There are great walks around and everything you need at the hostel. A wild treasure!

    Clean and cosy hostel. Website says girls and boys rooms are separate and only if there is overfill they'll mix them. This is not true. They are mixed even when not full. Also no WiFi in this hostel or mobile data connection to phone. Excellent location very close to beautiful Glenbrittle beach
