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 feel free to leave your bags and use the facilities, and then check-in between 5pm-10pm.

    Superb

    11 Jun 2018
    Hostel is not a building, is an experience. This place is maybe not shiny and modern but have a soul. Location is ok, close to shops, pubs. Could be better with security, no lockers to put valuables in. Kitchen is nice and warm, many people is hanging there. Problem can be a storage space. Staff have most of the lockers for them self so its hard to find space for your food. Atmosphere was great, staff really welcoming and nice. No problem with charging phones, tablets. WiFi was working ok.

    Fabulous

    The staff are wonderful caring folks. All of the water faucets need attention of one sort or another, though they do produce water. The outdoor showers are great, I did not use the indoor ones. It was warm and the midges were out in force, so do bring midge repellant and nets. I would most definitely stay here again!

    Very Good

    Great place, staff are really friendly. The kitchen is great and a really good place to meet new people. Location is a bit of a struggle as I had to take buses everywhere and they aren't very frequent in Kyleakin. The view is gorgeous and the beds comfy.
