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

We stayed in a twin ensuite, it was perfect. Clean, fresh, comfortable beds, cosy pillow and a lovely view. The common areas were well equipped, roomy and had lovely personnel touches that made it feel as if you were staying with friends. The staff and owners couldn't have been more helpful, their local knowledge helped us pack in so much... More

If there is the smallest, tiniest, most miniscule chance that you might get to the island late, don't even bother booking here. My friends and I were driving to the island and realised we would be a little late so once we had cell reception, we called the hostel to tell them. Thank god we are some of the people... More

We booked two nights at the Hostel and stayed in one of the Huts, rather than the dorms. We stayed in Hut 1, which was really pretty, with fairy lights around the ceiling. It was a really nice Hut, but the bed was a little uncomfortable, and the only source of heating was a heater at the end of the... More

Stayed in the 'Jedi Hut' this time - a new feature of the hostel. Great spot, cosy bed and fantastic attention to detail. As always, super helpful staff and the hostel is kept so clean and tidy. Would go back again and again!

Had a two night stay here. We had our own ensuite room. The facilities at this hostel were fab and it has to be the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. Lovely staff. The beds in our room were so comfortable. Parking is available and there a couple of pubs nearby, we ate in The Old Inn and we enjoyed... More
