Property Description

Set in rugged scenery at the foot of the Cuillin Ridge, Glenbrittle Youth Hostel is just over a mile from the beach and close to the magical fairy pools and the famous Talisker Distillery. Eagles can often be spotted in the skies above.

This homely hostel has a long tradition as a base for walkers and climbers, offering guests a variety of rooms, all with USB charging points and individual bed lights. Many have mountain views and all are available to book as private rooms. Although none of the rooms are en-suite, there are ample shower and washroom facilities.

Opt for continental breakfast served in the dining room or take advantage of the modern, well-equipped self-catering kitchen. The hostel is licensed and guests can relax with a local craft beer or glass of wine in the comfortable mountain-facing lounge after a hard day on the hills.

Other facilities include a laundry, large drying room, public phone and secure bike storage for up to 10 bikes. Basic provisions, including frozen ready meals, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception.

    Haven't been in many hostels but if all were kept up to this condition then it'd be great. Friendly staff, nice people staying at the same time and the whole place was kept clean by everyone while there. Great facilities and enough for a few groups at the same time to use.

    If you're looking for a place to disconnect then this is your place. Very close to the fairy pools and has amazing views of the Cuillin Ridge. You're down in the valley surrounded by mountains with beautiful hikes around the river. No internet or phone service.

    We wanted a location close to the main roads but off the path a bit and this hostel was perfect. The location is gorgeous and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience as short as it was. If you are new to right hand drive and single lane roads I would plan to arrive before/after a busy time for the fairy pools which you need to drive past and are heavily frequented throughout the day. A little out out of the way but so nice to have a quiet landing after busy days, I can’t wait to return.

    Quite a nice hostel if you are looking for an out of the way experience on Skye. You really need a car to get here but it puts you in a perfect spot for lots of great hikes.

    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.

    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.

    It was super nice to be disconnected and the hostel is clean with most things you need! The staff wasn’t super helpful on recommending what to do in the area but otherwise were fine. A little hard to find in the dark but a lovely remote place to stay! But you definitely to bring food and have a car
