    Lovely place with friendly and helpful staff. Unique, interesting and funky rooms and style. Location is fairly quiet - which is a bonus when going to a place as beautiful as Skye.

    We've stayed in a few hostels and this is by far the best one we have seen!! The facilities are modern and clean, the staff are super friendly, the location is in a stunning area of Skye, and glass dome is just really cool. I would say this is way better than many airbnbs and some hotels we've stayed at!

    This wee place is an absolute gem! The location is very nice and only a short drive to the fairy pools. The facilities are absolutely spotless too! There's loads of little funky artwork and puns around the hostel which I loved! Brian (the owner) and his family are all amazing and so friendly! I'll be back up for the Indy party, Brian!

    Best hostel we ever stayed in!! Staff was super friendly and welcoming! Room (+bathroom) was clean and the decoration is awesome! Love this place, would go back any time, would recommend it to everybody going to Skye! Would have stayed there longer, unfortunately it is not located super central, but if you want to get away from the masses and relax a bit, it's perfect! Lots of Love! May the weather gods be with you!

    Very Good

    The Skyewalker hostel is a wonderful place, located in a quite place which allows you to rest. The staff is just perfect, they are marvelous people and always willing to help. The facilities look good, complete and clean with everything needed. The only con I can say is that the matress was a bit uncomfortable.
