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.

    Excellent stay at this hostel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room and other areas were clean. The only minor issue was the depth of the foam matteess which could just have been a few centimetres deeper for me. I'll be back.

    Good place to stay. Nice kitchen, decent wi fi in main building. The caravans are a bit ramshackle, but they are cheap and the shower is just fine.

    Amazing hostel! Very small and down to earth, good kitchen and cosy lounge where you’re able to hang out with new people everyday. It’s located in a very nice small village where you have an amazing view of the huge bridge connecting Skye to the mainland. Also pub and bus stop are very closeby. Big recommend

    Skye Backpackers was a good place to stay in on Isle of Skye for a night or two of sleep. People we're really friendly and helpful - we met some really interesting people. Just be aware that it's a small town so getting around won't be so easy. But if you plan ahead you can experience some amazing scenery on the island!

    Very Good

    Staff were lovely and welcoming. Cereal and toast available for £3 in the morning. One tiny toilet per floor (around 16 people) and one shower which was basically a cupboard. Very small kitchen with one job and dining area. Lounge was taken over by a few people playing cards against humanity and nowhere else to sit and read apart from the kitchen. Beds had a foam mattress but funky duvet covers. Door key didn’t work properly - wouldn’t be hard to fit a new lock!!
