    Fantastic 2-night stay! Beyond expectation. Great location: right in the center of the town; only takes a 3-minute walk to the seaside, the nearest ATM or the only supermarket in town. Clean room and comfortable bed: sufficient space for the bottom bunk, allowing you to sit upright! Big kitchen: with at least eight stoves, two ovens, various kitchen tools and plenty of dining space. Lovely colorful interior design, and Friendly staff: a warm and welcoming lady, really made me feel at home.

    I went during the off-season for tourism on Skye so that my have skewed my experience. The hostel was very quiet, not much chatter or anything like that between other patrons. The kitchen was very large and well equipped with a grocery store not far making it easy to cook your own meals. Everything was clean and very spacious in the rooms. No lockers or ways to secure your belongings other than the bedroom door locking with a code.

    Overall, it's a good hostel. Located in the centre of Portree is very close to the beach and facilities stop. The hostel has an amazing kitchen. However, the room where I was staying which was the female dorm (originally booked the mixed dorm, but moved because the staff asked me if I wanted to be moved with some girls just met at no extra price), was small. The door of the room was never locked and there wasn't a locker to keep my belonging. I was provided with a small locker for my laptop.

    Very Good

    I did a three-day tour of the Isle of Skye, with two nights spent in Portree. As this was the only hostel available, I decided to go for it. The location is ideal and even though Portree is remote, there were still many backpackers to socialize with in the common areas. The building is old and fairly worn, although it is well taken care of. One issue: there are NO lockers in the rooms, and while I trusted my roommates in my four-person room, this is a major upgrade that should be done.
