I loved the atmosphere of the hostel, the bathtub (what a luxury!) and all the mural paintings. The people running the hostel are very friendly. The dorms are good. But when I stayed they put 2 extra beds in there and that was a bit too much. I didn't sleep well both nights I stayed there. But I loved hanging... More

Staff were friendly and helpful but the room and bedding was grubby (and our standards are pretty low.) This hostel lives in an old health centre so the nurse calls are still on the walls along with some quirky artwork. I don't get the rules though, so many of them; don't open windows, kitchen closed (and locked) at 10pm, rooms,... More

As there were three of us we were offered a four bed room (two bunk beds) which we booked on the basis that it would not be comfortable for a stranger to share with us. The cost of eighteen pounds per bed is not much less expensive than many b&b's, but at this hostel no breakfast is supplied. Tea and... More

Extremely nice laid back staff and free wifi. The building is a little bit run down but everything works fine, plenty of showers and a nice communal bbq area outside. Nice kitchen too and even a free food shelf!

Travelling around Scotland we stayed in a number of hostels and we thought this one was the nicest! Staff were very friendly, kitchen, rooms and facilities clean, beds are very comfy and there's a lovely lounge where you can relax. Yes it was a bit warm, so we took out the duvet and yes there were boys, but that's what... More

This place has potential, but is in desperate need of an upgrade. Our room had morning sun, so it was light before 4 am, very warm and as it lacked midge nets, we couldn't open any windows. The bed was fine and bedding clean, albeit a bit old. The kitchen is closed between 22:00 and 7:30h so we had to... More

The rooms were sooooooooo hot! And there is no real way of cooling them down. You cannot open the only window because there a so many midges outside. You can wedge the door to the dorm open but then you have no privacy. On several occasions I tried to ask the staff for a fan, but they were either not... More

Unfriendly spanish staff, no breakfast, no ventilation. Kitchen is locked by 22:00. This place should really invest in dark blinds (since in the summertime the sun is up by 4), some mosquitoe nets (damn midges), some ceiling fans (very hot inside and if you open a window "the midges will eat you alive") and also some cleaning! The bathroom vents... More

These were the only beds available in town when we were in Broadford. We are a young couple and we stayed in a 7-bed mixed dorm. Just before 9pm the manager came in and added another cot so we ended up being 8 the first night. The second night we were only 4. The beds were fine but the window... More
