This place is super nice for a short stay in Portree! It's a 30-second walk from the main bus stop, which is super nice. Just remember that you will have to pay in cash for your stay. They don't accept cards at the front desk.

I really don’t ever write reviews, much less negative ones. I wanted to make sure people knew what they were getting into here. This experience was just so dissimilar to many other hostels throughout Scotland/ the UK. The hostel wasn’t very kind/ accommodating, as the door was locked and there’s only a brief window to check in despite the same 3 staff members always being on the premises (sometimes sleeping in the main foyer?) Don’t forget cash to check in, if you do.
