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.

    Really lovely staff. Location not massively close to all the main walks in Isle of Skye, would recommend staying in Portree for that to save driving time each day. Kitchen well equipped. We stayed in one of the caravans and the beds were comfortable/facilities good. Only downside was curtains were broken so v bright early morning plus whenever anyone in the caravan moved the whole thing shook. But still such good value for what we paid!

    We had filled out requirements for 2 male 3 female, n 1child. The sky backpakers did not allow the mother n child to sleep in the caravan we requested a lot but they would not budge saying child is not allowed, nor did they refund the money. THIS IS NOT RIGHT. How can you be so in human, and let a child sleep in a car in 3degrees... We need our money back

    Female receptionist with an American accent was very rude and ignorant. During our stay in the morning there was deep cleaning in progress and we were told to go away to the seating room and leave the kitchen in a rude way. Lots of volunteers were there at that time who stayed for free had more rights than customers who were paying for the stay, which was quite expensive considering poor facilities. Extremely small kitchen and living room which was not suited to accommodate all people's needs.
