    Loved this hostel and this town, although I only was able to stay a night it's a place id love to return to. Staff is friendly and helpful! You also get access to the kitchen and eating area 24/7 which is quite rare I have found in other hostels. Great stay, would recommend!

    I really enjoyed this hostel! The kitchen and lounge area were very nice, as well as the in dorm bathroom. There was lots of room for luggage in the room, which was not cramped at all. My only complaint was that I could feel the springs in the mattress, but really that isn't a big issue for me.

    This was a wonderful and beautiful place to stay. The front door lock is challenging. The address is not visible on the house. Otherwise, beyond, beyond.

    The view from the hostel was spectacular, definitely the best of the whole trip. It was nice to be able to eat dinner outside on the deck and enjoy the view! The kitchen was huge and had everything you needed as well as lots of space to sit and eat or hang out. There was a private bathroom within our dorm room which was amazing, no other hostel we were in had that. Breakfast wasn't included which is fine, but was difficult to catch an employee in order to pay them for our breakfast.

    I booked a twin ensuite.... I stead of two twin beds, it had one full size bed. Since I was there with my grown son, this made for an awkward situation. The hostel told me that hostel world consistently represents it wrong. This should be fixed! I ended up sleeping on the floor on a mattress.

    This is a great budget option for Portree - as it is a town with limited options for the budget traveler. I would likely stay here again.

    Not a great hostel, and not worth £30 per night. It's an old building, the dorm was quite small and cramped, and the kitchen was also small and cramped. Most other guests kept to themselves so I didn't really enjoy the vibe. On the plus side, it's in a good location and there's a large free parking lot across the street.
