Very nice hostel, one of the frendliest where we slept in Scotland ! That was lovely days spent there !! It's very dynamical and the mix of the different cultures is very interesting and surprising. We could meet many people and the geographical position of the hostel with respect to supermarket, pub but also famous landscapes and treks make this... More

...when we booked and paid for 4. Horrible old tatty linen, duvets and pillows! A kitchen that closes and I locked early so when we arrived late (and all local facilities are closed) we couldn't even boil some pasta. This place had a nice quirky feel that we could have really enjoyed, but they really need to do better with... More

Some elements of this place were good, others really some improvement. Not a bad location, easy walk into town OK rooms, 3 or 4 beds only, clean linnen. Only 4 showers and 4 toilets for the entire hostel...not enough in my oppinion The building inside and out needs a really good scrub. Cobwebs (and a few creepy-crawlies) hang form the... More

This hostel is okay in some areas but also needs some attention in others. We slept in a six bed dorm room. No ventilation and it was very warm in the room. You weren't allowed to open the window during the night (a sign said you would wet the bed if you did so). Funny sign but about 1,000 degrees... More

We have been 2 weeky on the "Isle of Skye" and unfortunately I have to say this place was the worst we did stay at during that time (and we did stay in a lot of different places: bunkrooms, cottages and B&Bs). The whole backpackers is located in a very nice spot away from the main road, so it is... More

We stayed in a double room. The bathrooms were okay, not too far away-- but it didn't seem like there were enough toilets for everyone. The room was a good size but the bed didn't seem very clean. It was very hot inside the hostel, but of the two windows in our room, one was broken and didn't open, and... More

Love this hostel very much !!! We booked a three-person room there. The location of the hostel is very close to the bus station and 10 min walk to the supermarket. You could enjoy the movies with as a sofa potato in rainy days and enjoy the views out of the window in sunny days. Masters there are very nice... More

Booked this after reading various reviews on the net, and after approx 10 mins we thought we had gone back in time: to when Hostels were cheap, basic and generally places you stayed in when you had no choice! The beds are old, very uncomfortable and badly water marked, some windows are taped shut, others locked, the paintwork is, well... More

Booked at the last minute, this turned out to be a great place to stay. As a couple we wanted privacy so managed to book a twin room. Very comfy beds and warm bedding, and great to have own sink in the room. The door had dropped on its hinges and was an effort to open and close though. Toilet... More

Me and my girlfriend stayed here and we loved it. The staff were really friendly and made us feel right at home. Its a very cosy hostel with good showers and comfy beds so great value all in all. Broadford is a quite spot but it is beautiful and its a great place to bass yourself for touring the island.
