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.

    Great place! The village is adorable, there are possibilities for short but nice hikes around. The people and the atmosphere of the hostel makes you feel like home. I had a great musical night there and met great people :D

    We had a lovely weekend away as a family of 4. My young ones loved the hostel, and the staff couldn't be more accommodating. Perfect location; needed to be in Portree early in the morning (under an hour away). Will definitely be staying there again.

    This hostel was incredibly cute and cozy. Staff was friendly, other guests were kind and respectful. The common spaces/ rooms were clean and fun to spend time in. Showers were a little small, but that's to be expected in a hostel. Would highly recommend!

    The staff were amazing - so friendly and helpful. The property itself was very cozy and quirky. The town was very pretty but about 45 minutes from the main town of Portree.
