    Our stay in Glenbrittle was pure magic, and the hostel was a big part of that. The setting is breathtaking, with several great hikes nearby. Hervé (the manager) was knowledgeable, professional, helpful, and kind, always going above and beyond for everyone. Facilities were perfect for us - non-fussy, clean, spacious, and hearty and tasty meals available if needed. It was wonderful to stay in a historical building in which my father stayed as a young man fifty years ago. See? Magic.

    This hostel is perfectly located for getting off the grid for a few days and exploring the beautiful landscape. It has ample cooking space for several groups at once and comfortable common areas, but the best thing is definitely the location and how knowledgeable the staff was about the hikes around.

    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.

    The staff are helpful and hard-working, keeping this old facility very clean. The bathrooms are updated and good. The facility design encourages interaction among the guests, however, that leads to the one negative--noise. The rooms have paper thin walls, and guests who ignore the quiet hours provide an upsetting amount of echoing noise shared by everyone in all the rooms. Ear plugs are a poor solution. Guests should be strongly reminded of the need for quiet. Also,keep the hostel open all day.

    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.

    For people hiking the nearby mountains this is a great location. Otherwise it is off the beaten track for anything else. The waterfall across from the hostel was pretty. The facilities were clean and bedroom was comfy. I would definitely recommend staying here. It had a nice mountain cabin feel to it.

    Overall very budged choice with good service. But it is uneasy for those upper deck bed without any power socket while those came in earlier will choose lower deck for convenience & with power socket. Our group was forced to choose upper one...also need policy of lighting off, it was just very uneasy when someone asked to turn off light at 9sth...should provide guideline so that it won’t create conflict.

    I’ll start with the positives, the place was clean. However, after a long day of hiking, I showed up, told I’d have to make my own bed, which I’ve never experienced in a hostel and the bed was horribly uncomfortable. I could feel every spring. I couldn’t sleep due to that and was outta there to finish my sleep in my car. I wish I’d have saved my $30 and just slept in my car.
