    Very cute hostel in the centre of Portree, with good precautions taken to prevent COVID spread. The shower rooms were private and large, and the kitchen was available 24/7 (though one has to be quite at night). There was 24/7 free parking by the hostel during my visit, which was greatly appreciated. Shops and pubs/restaurants/cafes are all very close by.

    Fantastic location in the center of town. Friendly staff, very secure to outside world but no lockers for belongings. Note the times it is locked during the day for cleaning, you will not be able to access your bed/belongings during these times.

    Location was ideal (center of the town) and right across from the bus stop coming from mainland Scotland. Hostel was colourful, spacious and very welcoming. Room was comfortable and very clean. Kitchen was well equipped. Unfortunately not open for guests to cook, but basic storage for food and dining spaces were open. Staff were very helpful with questions and flexible checkout times. Hostel atmosphere was quiet due to the pandemic but conscious of guidelines. Overall great experience!

    Would highly recommend! Big kitchen (although couldn’t use all facilities due t covid, which didn’t really make sense as we could use others!) and a bathroom personal to the room. Such a lovely yellow building and right next to a bay with a great view. And the receptionist Bing is lovely too!

    Found the room far too expensive for what we got. There were not enough showers, there was rubbish under the bed when we arrived, one of the light fittings was broken, and we never saw a member of staff. If it had been cheaper it would have been ok, but for the price that was charged we expected a higher quality of room and facilities.

    No staff present (apparently due to Covid but this seems rather an excuse because it’s the only hostel I’ve been to during Covid times that operates this way). Beds are unhygienic (no mattress protector), toilets/ showers used by too many people without proper cleaning, no air ventilation because windows are locked and fabric towels (unhygienic even without Covid). People checked in until 2am, was very noisy. Window in room just opened a few cm (sticky and warm), ceiling light wasn’t working and
