The pluses of this place is it's in a great location near Broadford bus stop, it was warm inside, the showers and facilities were pretty good, staff were friendly. Other than this, it's not that remarkable or interesting. I would recommend heading over to the Broadford Hotel on the main road to check out the bar, it's quite nice, otherwise... More

Our group of 5 adults agreed that this was possibly our favourite hostel out of all those we stayed at during our entire Scotland road trip experience. It was clean and had a lovely kitchen and common room. The staff were also warm and friendly. This is definitely a good option when you're just starting out on the Isle of... More

The hostel had very little ventilation in the room which was full of people who had been hiking for the last week. Wet sweaty clothes and bodies of ten people with no open windows really wasn't ideal. The hostel is quite run down and there was a problem with the lights in the showers,

I caught a bus directly to broadford from the ferry and then was just a short walk up the road. There is a servo, pub and cafe nearby for meals/necessities if you needed something. The beds were warm, showers hot & bathrooms clean. Kitchen had everything you'd need for a basic meal. Staff friendly and helped us out when enquiring... More

This hostel was fantastic. It has a very warm and welcoming feel to it, friendly and helpful staff, great and big common room (with DVDs and board games), and perfectly decent sleeping arrangements. I used to not like staying in hostels, but this one changed my mind.

I think it is pretty difficult to find a decent, VFM place on Skye. This hostel is one of such places. Broadford is a good starting location to explore Skye. Rooms are warm with good mattresses. Equipped with kitchen, laundry service, common rooms etc.

At first I was a little skeptical about this hostels but in the end it was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The people are so friendly, the rooms and bathrooms were clean and the place felt homey. It was a very comfortable stay for us. One downfall was there was only wifi in common areas.

This hostel is very colourful and the guys of the reception are easygoing and welcoming, but the rooms are very humid and you don't really get a feeling of hygiene. There is not air con and you are advised not to open the windows because of mosquitos. There are few tables in the dining room and the kitchen is not... More
