Property Description

Skye Backpackers sits in the picturesque fishing village of Kyleakin, skirted by mountains and sea. It's a small, cosy hostel with an open fire in the lounge and a lovely backyard garden.

Come and stay in this wee village; the gateway to the Isle of Skye. With its lively pub atmosphere and quiet, comfortable accommodation, Kyleakin is the perfect place to come to escape the stresses of city life.

The Isle of Skye is situated on the West coast of mainland Scotland, and is the largest and best known of the Inner Hebrides. One of Europe's most dramatic and haunting lands, words can do little justice to describe Skye's awesome beauty. The majestic Cuillin Mountains dominate a rugged landscape that is peppered with lochs and tiny fishing villages.

Take some time to explore the island's haunted castle ruins; feel the mysterious presence of the legendary faeries in tranquil glens, waterfalls and mountain pools; visit whiskey distilleries and sample local beers and ales; take a relaxing stroll through the countryside or boldly ascend a mighty mountain.

We can offer you suggestions of what to see and do each day, and we hope that you will leave the Isle of Skye feeling refreshed, exhilarated and peaceful!

We offer a variety of accommodation from our standard mixed and female dormitories, and for the traveller on a budget we have our basic dormitory, which is a converted caravan situated in the back garden.

The hostel reception is open from 7am - 12 noon and then from 5pm - 10pm. If you arrive in the afternoon, please feel free to leave your bags and use the facilities, and then check-in between 5pm-10pm. If you think you may arrive later than 10pm, please let us know so that we may inform our night porter of your late check-in.

    Our stay was comfortable. The kitchen facilities were good and the breakfast was cheap and good. Staff were lovely and the location was great. The kitchen area was slightly too small for everyone to prepare food and have space to sit and eat though. The shower and toilets were pretty old and the toilet got blocked during our stay. Overall our stay was ok.

    Everyone was super nice at the hostel, it was clean and welcoming. Only thing, the shower outside, the light in it was motion sensored, and kept shutting off every minute or two.

    Not too bad, lovely location, rooms could do with a bit of a spruce up and the price a little too much when staying as a family.

    Very Good

    Place was quite nice and staff was very friendly. The shower was a really good shower compared to a lot of hostels but the area where you put your clothes often gets wet which can be annoying as there is nowhere to place things. We stayed in a private twin room and it was very small but this was fine. Walls were thin but people were mostly respectful so this wasn’t an issue. I would recommend the hostel oil the doors however as they were VERY loud. But overall this was a great place.

    slightly gutted I was put into a caravan outback which I didn’t realise when I booked my bunk i thought I would be inside. The caravan was freezing and the little heater that was put in there beside the door only kept that little bit warm. It also smelt of damp and there was toilet outside. Not too sure if it’s value for money but you did get two pillows and the beach was a stones throw away. Would of preferred to sleep in the actual hostel but hey ho! The staff were really nice

    I booked my room using Hostel World app, and had a very unpleasant surprise when I got to the hostel. I was told I would be staying outside, on a caravan converted into a dorm, no toilets... anyway, I showed them my reservation and I said I was sure that was a mistake, cause at no point my reservation mentioned "caravan". The receptionist confirmed that this info was hidden, we'd only know that if we had clicked on room description, and she said they had problems with other guests. Awful!
