We did love it. Really nice staff, an incredible place in which you can sleep perfectly without any noise. Highly recommended. Perfect for adventurers and people who want to feel like in their home when they are far away of it. If you are going to spend some days in Skye, you must stay in the Skyewalker.

The reality is, if you are visiting the Isle of Skye, you will be spending very little time in your accommodations and most of the time hiking and exploring. Skywalker is a nice, clean hostel with all necessities included, but if you are looking for a place where you can take a walk around town in the evenings and grab... More

A friend of mine and I stayed at the Skyewalker Hostel for two nights and absolutely loved it! It was by far the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in, and the staff was very professional and willing to provide ideas or directions for us to enjoy our brief stay on the island. The kitchen was large and well organized,... More

Very clean, well maintained, and full of amenities, this hostel is by far one of the best on the Isle of Skye. As if that's not good enough, it's near attractions such as Talisker Distillery and The Oyster Shed, both of which are highly recommended. In general, areas around Skye aren't very easy to get to if you're not driving,... More

Stayed here for two nights while exploring Skye. Easy enough to travel around if you have a car. We love Star Wars so great themed hostel for us! Clean with excellent faculties with everything you need to be independent. Very comfortable and warming to come home to after a day of trekking through Skye.

We stayed 1 night in this hostel on a recent tour of Skye. The room was very clean and comfortable and the hostel's facilities were top notch. Excellent pub nearby that served super food. Recommended!

We can't thank Brian, Lisa and their family enough for our lovely week at Skyewalker. They were all friendly, and always had time for us if we had a question. All the guests we spoke to were friendly, too :) We stayed in both the dorm room and the 'Jedi hut' outdoors - both were spotlessly clean and well equipped.... More

Let me be clear--I didn't stay here. I was planning on it, and was quite exited, but unfortunately, during the drive from Edinburgh to Skye, I got a phone call that a family member had passed away. I had no choice but to go back and find a way home. I tried to call Skyewalker five separate times. Four of... More

I thought I had booked an ensuite room only to find I hadn't, entirely my fault. The bunk room we had was absolutely tiny. No room for both of us and our luggage to be in there at the same time! Bunk bed was comfy and common areas were fine. No wifi and no phone reception is an issue for... More
