    Absolutely lovely hostel. Wonderful staff, very helpful with providing information about what to do around Skye. Very comfortable room with an adjustable heater. Clean facilities, hot shower with good pressure (which I have found hard to find). Definitely recommend.

    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 :)

    We arrived do Isle of Skye for 1 night. I hoped for some walk round Portree but the weather didn't let us. We stayed in the hostel as group of 4. We had private room with bathroom. Everything was nice an clean. Friendly staff at the reception. We didn't use the facilities (main kitchen and lounge)as we had everything with us. There is a kettle with tea and coffee in the room.

    Would recommend staying here if you need a home base to explore Isle of Skye. It was very convenient with parking and being close to restaurants and a grocery store. Hot showers and a kitchen that had different stations for different groups of travelers to use. The hot showers were nice after a day of hiking too. Only downtown would be the minimal lockers in the rooms that weren’t enough for everyone to have one if the place was booked out. Place was kept clean and staff was friendly too.

    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!

    It wasn't the most confortable hostel I've been to (spings in beds, few chargers and far from top beds, cold room and no locked box) but the staff was very welcoming. I've stayed 2nights in a 10 beds dorm. The hostel is quite big and there's a very nice view from the common area. Also, you are right in Portree's center! You really have to stay at least 1 or 2 nights to see isle of skye well.

    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
