    Absolutely fabulous. Really well laid out and organised. Very definitely Scottish, rightly so in the Isle of Skye! Other guests were courteous and sociable, it all works very well. In the language question below, should have Gaelic!

    Staff were so so lovely and helpful, we only had 1 day in Skye and they were happy to highlight the main spots for us to help us plan our route. Everything was extremely clean but still felt super cosy. Location was great as it was outside of busy spots but a short drive away from everywhere we wanted to go. Strongly recommend!!

    We loved our stay here! The place was spotlessly clean - maybe the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in - and we got a really friendly welcome from the staff. The place has a lovely relaxed vibe in a beautiful setting, with everything we could have wanted from a rural hostel. Great value for money and we'll definitely be back here next time we stay in Skye!

    I absolutely loved this hostel! The owner and staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. They gave us many tips on our journey around the Isle of Skye as well as where to eat nearby the hostel. We had a great dinner at Taigh Ailean Hotel, about a 5 minute walk away. We felt very safe in cozy in one of the private Jedi Huts. I would highly recommend staying in these! You have to walk outside and back into the hostel to use the bathroom, but it's a short walk and very worth it. 10/10 stars!

    Great place to stay. They have been closed for a while out of Covid precautions - hence the lack of reviews. However, don't miss this place - it's awesome!! The rooms are clean and secure. While the rooms are small, we were mainly there to sleep and relax so no need for a larger room. Get out and explore Isle of Skye! The bathroom and showers have privacy and ample room. The staff is also super friendly and happy to offer history information and travel recommendations.

    Very cute, not at all a party hostel, instead an eclectic and beautiful far out spot with cute rooms and helpful staff. Excellent spot to jump around western Skye.

    This hostel is perfect for a stay on Syke. The staff are so friendly and full of helpful info. The kitchen is well stocked and there’s a great pub just down the street. Beds were comfortable and showers were extremely clean. A lot of effort has gone into making this hostel cosy and inviting and we loved it. Thanks team!
