The hostel had a nice relaxed astmosphere...the staff were very friendly, big smiles and hellos. If you get fish and chips to eat out be careful as the seagulls will dive bomb you!
Great stay, had 8 males over 30 yrs for a 2 nights and no dramas at all.
A fantastic hostel. The staff were very helpful. Very clean. For a big hostel we were treated as friends. Loved it.
A really great stay, comfortable and friendly atmosphere and good facilities. Large well organised kitchen was great.
Fantastic hostel in a great location. The place is spotlessly clean and has good facilities. The communal areas are a good size and staff helpful. Showers have plenty of water and the kitchen has lots of cooking utensils. Our room was quite warm even with the windows open but the beds were study and comfortable enough. Would recommend.
My stay at the youth hostel was both a pleasant and enjoyable experience. The staff were all very helpful and informative. The rooms were spacious and the being centrally placed in the town meant you were only a few minute walk from everything.
Great base for exploring the Isle of Skye. There are so many places worth visiting - Cuillins, Trotternish Peninsula, Neist Point, Glen Sligachan, Loch Coruisk, Elgol, Bla Bheinn, Talisker Bay, Fairy pools...These are just a few places but there are many more. Wherever on Skye you will go you will love it!

Reasons to visit
Home to twelve Munros, including the famous Black Cuillin range with the Inaccessible Pinnacle, Skye is the ultimate playground for the outdoor enthusiast. But there's another side to Skye which includes its world-class restaurants, art studios, castles and crofting museums which chart the tumultuous history of its people from clan battles to the Highland Clearances. Skye is captivating on so many levels.
From the Old Man of Storr to Kilt Rock with its spectacular waterfall cascading into the sea. Follow the dinosaur footprints at low tide on Staffin Beach or head to the Quiraing, an iconic landscape made famous by films such as King Arthur Legend of the Sword, Prometheus, The BFG and Game of Thrones.
Nature lovers can go otter spotting in the harbour or take a boat trip to look out for the sea eagles, porpoises and seals that live off the coast. Travel to Waternish and take a boat trip to St Kilda, famous as the UK's only UNESCO world heritage site and home to nearly a million seabirds including the UK's largest colony of Atlantic Puffins.
