    Hostel in a great position and was a good value base for an overnight stay in Portree. Would definitely recommend it ( and we are in our 60s).

    The hostel was great! The staff were all incredibly kind and helpful. Room was clean and although there was 7 of us, it didn’t feel cramped. Location was great as there was many restaurants/pubs/shops only a few minutes walk away. Only issues were with parking as it was pay and display, and some of the facilities like the kitchen were shut so we couldn’t make our own meals.

    My stay was great! Even without the car it was easy to get around and go to places because a bus stop was right around the corner. The atmosphere in the hostel was also good to get in touch with other backpackers :)

    Lovely hostel with polite staff. However lack of kitchen and social areas that we were unaware of made the stay more tricky, but this can't be helped as it was due to the COVID restrictions.

    Great place, I would definitely recommend! Stayed for 4 nights, the staff were all round really friendly and helpful. The facilities were great, large kitchen and living area, when I stayed there was lots of free food left by other travelers! Great location, less then 3 min walk to main bus stop. Shower/toilets were great for a hostel, even had a ‘private’ shower/toilets in our room of only 4 beds! £3 pounds for towel hire which I thought was too expensive. Beds and pillows were nice and comfy!

    Stayed here for 2 nights, don't think there is much to say about, there's not a lot to do and think this is largely due to the town of Portree and me coming in the winter. There is a pretty large kitchen for you to prepare any trips around Isle of Skye and was very close to the town centre.

    I booked this incorrectly. I booked for 1/24,25,26/2020 but I meant to book for 3/24,25,26/2020. The hostel contacted me on 1/25 asking me if I was to arrive late and wondered if they should hold the room. I responded immediately by email stating that I made a mistake with my dates and wondered if they could rebook for March. They did not reply. I tired to rebook but that room was not available for my dates. I had requested that I receive the "day before" text confirmation which I did not
