Nice relaxed staff, friendly and helpful with ideas of what to do on the island. Warm and very comfortable beds, better than most hostels. Amazing warm showers, and a tree swing. Nice places to relax like a lovely lounge area and a BBQ and fire pit downstairs. Free coffee and tea. Would come here again.

From the front this place looks like nothing but you'll be pleasantly greeted by a member of staff and a very clean premises upon entry. I only stayed here a night but i was impressed with the cleanliness of the place. Good kitchen facilities also, comfy beds, decent showers but only a small lounge. All in all I would definitely...

First of all, there are certainly some good things about this hostel: - It almost always has beds available as it comes in far behind the likes of Skyewalker and SYHA Glenbrittle in the quality stakes. (I have stayed at both of these other hostels too.) - The staff are genuinely friendly. - The showers are good! Unfortunately, there are... More

I stayed in this hostel for 7 weeks, we were given a nice bright room far away from the living room so it was nice and quite. The beds were very comfy, and the rooms are kept clean and tidy :), the hostel has a nice chilled out vibe. The kitchen can get busy but it is functional and very... More

The staff in this hostel is super friendly and welcoming, giving you tips how to get around the Island, were to go, what to do and what to see. It has a big common area with DVDs, books, travel guides, board games, comfy couches and a small kitchen where you can cook tea. We stayed for two nights in two... More

I stayed in this hostel for 2 nights and I had a great time there. The staff is really friendly and available and bedrooms and bathrooms were rather clean. The kitchen also had everything you might need (microwave oven, toaster, fridge and so on). They offer free tea and coffee which is great if you're staying there just for a... More

Quite overcrowded and who puts a bedroom right next to the lounge? Kitchen also quite overcrowded. Rooms humid and stuffy. This hostel is popular with Europeans and they all smoke so the rooms end up stinking of smoke. No secure bike storage. Poor value at £20 per night. The hostels in the Outer Hebrides were much nicer and better value.... More

After completing the 128 km walk from Rubha Hunish to Broadford, this was a very cousy place to stay in. Fully equipped kitchen, clean showers, rooms just about what you would expect from a backpackers hostel. The "living room" was a nice place where walkers can meet and exchange their experience. One thing to watch out for: If you wake... More

We stayed here 4 nights arriving around the time of last check in at 10.30pm. When we phoned ahead they handily left us the key and details at reception. The dorm room was small and stuffy (we had to keep the window and door open throughout the night). There were plenty of showers. The kitchen was generally well equipped (though... More

Great hostel, with a great living room, it was a pleasure to read my book in there. There are books, DVDs and board games, three cumfortable sofas, some armchairs and a pouffe. There is a cuisine for the guests, a dining room. Laudry £6, sheets supplied. There are a lot of showers and toilets. The rooms are small, but it's... More
