Property Description

Set in rugged scenery at the foot of the Cuillin Ridge, Glenbrittle Youth Hostel is just over a mile from the beach and close to the magical fairy pools and the famous Talisker Distillery. Eagles can often be spotted in the skies above.

This homely hostel has a long tradition as a base for walkers and climbers, offering guests a variety of rooms, all with USB charging points and individual bed lights. Many have mountain views and all are available to book as private rooms. Although none of the rooms are en-suite, there are ample shower and washroom facilities.

Opt for continental breakfast served in the dining room or take advantage of the modern, well-equipped self-catering kitchen. The hostel is licensed and guests can relax with a local craft beer or glass of wine in the comfortable mountain-facing lounge after a hard day on the hills.

Other facilities include a laundry, large drying room, public phone and secure bike storage for up to 10 bikes. Basic provisions, including frozen ready meals, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception. Due to the hostel’s remote location, there’s no WiFi and very limited mobile signal.

Please take time to read the house rules before booking accommodation for under 16year olds at this hostel’

Check in is between 17.00-22.00 and check out by 10.00.

Limited off-road parking is available in front of the hostel.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

Glenbrittle was the best youth hostel in Scotland and the Isle of Skye. The location is incredible and I love that there is no wifi! The dinners to purchase were delicious and I appreciate the vegetarian options. The staff was great, love Stew!! Would come back again for sure!

Great location, friendly staff and atmosphere. Comfortable rooms and dining/sitting areas. The kitchen was well equipped but it would have been great to have a bit more small pots to cook.
