    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.

    Great stay and felt very welcomed, good safety measures in place. The only comment I have is the few bathrooms, sometimes you had to wait for people to finish as the toilet was with the shower. Thanks

    Such a lovely hostel! Well needed after many days of wild camping. We came 4 hours early and they were so accommodating and even offered to do our washing, which was very kind. Couldn’t recommend this quirky hostel enough and the staff are great!

    Good place and the only one that was available on that date. Unfortunately, kitchen facilities are out of use due to the pandemic regulations. Though wearing masks was compulsory inside few guests did not follow the regulations.

    For the money I paid, it’s probably better to find a proper AirBNB as this hostel are not suitable for family with kids unfortunately. Its shared bathroom, zero amenities, paid parking, top floor rooms are quite a hassle. But if you’re an independent backpacker looking for adventure, then this place ia definitely for you.

    Good location, nice staff but is not enough.. Place is not hygienic (toilet with no toilet paper, dirty.. God knows when it was cleaned, shower room water does not drain, very hot water which you can't regulate. Matrasses are very uncomfy, for this price they should buy new. Hostel next to this is more cheeper and much more clean!! For 100%!! I do not recommend this hostel and I will never come back there.

    After leaving i got a call about missing pillows from the room and that they were going to charge me £10 for taking them. I had no need to take the pillows and will be talking to my bank about the charge. Not very friendly.
