    The stay we had at Skyewalker will be very difficult to beat! The facility and cleanliness was absolutely perfect and beautiful. The best possible place to take advantage of all that Skye has to offer. I have nothing but positive to say, truly this is an amazing place to start an adventure- of course be prepared that it is secluded but that’s part of the beauty, learning to manoeuvre around the isle while discovering. Everything was perfect and we hope to be back someday.

    This hostel was so amazing!!! The owner was friendly and what we liked most was that it was the cleanest hostel we had ever been to. They are very strict about making sure it's clean and tidy and that everyone cleans up after themselves. Loved our stay here !

    Stayed at Skyewalker Hostel for six nights. The hostel was superb. Clean and comfortable, and a wee bit quirky, facilities were excellent. The staff were always very welcoming and helpful, happy to help with directions, suggestions and local knowledge. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Highly recommended.

    Absolutely loved it! The hostel is clean and comfortable with all the facilities you may need and more. I have stayed for a week and every day I discovered a new gem of wisdom or joke in the corridors and public rooms. Very entertaining 😊. Brian, Lisa and their team were always available to answer any questions about the Island or services and ensuring a welcoming but not overbearing atmosphere was kept. Super clean. Great location with ample garden and sits. What a beautifulpart of the world.

    I would definitely stay at Skyewalker Hostel again. The staff is wonderful. The place is welcoming and clean, especially the shared restrooms. The only complaint I have---and it is a small one--is that I had to plug in my phone across the room from my bed as there weren't outlets nearby. I will definitely stay here again.
