Highly recommend the Skywalker hostel. Great location for exploring Skye; near the Tallisker Distillery and the Fair Pools. Knowledgeable, friendly hosts. We stayed in the Jedi huts, well worth the extra money if you want a bit of privacy but still have access to the hostel facilities. Everything was modern and spotless! Loved the dome for sitting in at night... More

Great place, amazing views, I highly recommend!!! Wonderful night views and beautiful location. Just up the road from town. The staff was amazing and very helpful in assisting us with finding some late night food after a long day of travel. Night views and star gazing from the Skyewalker Hostel are amazing!!! Rooms are very clean.

Simply great hostel with great kitchen (I love the table!) and wonderful host that will answer any question you have - you can't ask Google but you don't need it up there! 4 points because the showers were not quite my taste: very clean but either to hot or to cold...

Had a wonderful time staying at this quirky, beautiful, charming hostel! I will definitely be back. Not only was the atmosphere superb, the decoration is bizarre and weird in the best possible sense of the word - I spent hours just staring at the different walls. And the best part of it all - the girls running the place -... More

Everything you needed was there and they had helpfully left emergency items in the bathroom e.g. shampoo, shower... More
