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

    19 Jul 2018
    We just stay in hostel for one night. The room was nice and the other guest were fine. We like the breakfest and options to cook the coffe or hot chocholade. The bathrooms and toilets are small, but if you are not sensitive, are just fine. The stuff is friendly and helpful.

    Fabulous

    18 Jul 2018
    Really great location in a village near the Skye Bridge & Kyle of Lochalsh railway station. The hostel is a short walk from the bus stop which can take you to a great number of places on the island (including Portree, Broadford & Elgol) as well as Glasgow & Inverness. The hostel itself is basic, I was staying in a caravan at the back, but this is of no concern given how inexpensive it is to stay there! The only concern I had is the lack of outdoot toilet & showering facilities for caravan guests

    Fabulous

    We stayed in the caravan rooms outside the hostel. They were cheap, but you get what you pay for with them - there's one toilet and shower between all 18 caravan beds, and these were full of bugs. There weren't any spaces to store luggage, and the caravans didn't feel very secure, as you could walk straight up to them from the street. The hostel is lovely inside, though, and is in an amazing location! The information board on all the local things to do in Kyleakin was really helpful!

    Good

    16 Jul 2018
    Regarding the Isle of Skye, location is only good if you have a car. Otherwise, the best is to stay at Portree. None of the buses take you to the attractions. Staff is fellow travelers with little experience. One of the girls was actually really rude to me for no apparent reason from the get-go, but there was an Australian guy who was really nice and helpful. Great kitchen service, horrible beds, really hard, it's like sleeping on a board. Bathrooms and toilets are average.
