    We had a wonderful stay here, the amazing staff went above and beyond in every way to help us out. They kept the reception open late for us as we had a flat tyre and wouldn't make it by 9pm, and then when the lovely receptionist discovered we hadn't been able to have dinner she gave us some of her own food so we could eat! On top of this the hostel itself was amazing, beautiful new kitchen and bathrooms, very comfortable beds, plenty of car parking. Will definitely stay here again!!

    What a rad facility! This family run getaway has such a great atmosphere. There is a bar/restaurant within walking distance and another a 5 min drive away. It is also located very close to the Talisker Distillery. After a good day of trekking around the island, nothing was better than relaxing and stargazing in the skydome located on the grounds. I couldn’t recommend this spot more.

    Had an awesome stay!! The showers and toilets are nice and spacious. The bedrooms only have one charging point (as far as I noticed). The atmosphere was awesome. The owner is a great guy who is full of awesome recommendations and conversation (also he gives out shots each night it seems). I would definitely stay here again!

    The staff were friendly, kind, and down to earth. Very personable and truly cared about your stay. The location was perfect for everything that we were doing on Isle of Skye. This hostel was close to The Fairy Pools, Neist Point, the old inn (for food), and a distillery. They had a nice kitchen equipped with anything that you needed. It was clean and we felt safe.
