We stayed three nights here and had our own (2 person) room overlooking the main square. The location is great, when we arrived it was dark and we were glad to find that the hostel was very close to the bus stop so we didn't have to walk far. There are lots of restaurants close by and the picturesque harbour... More

The hostel is cheap and located in the centre of Portree, but those are the only positive things I could think of. The rooms are too small and filthy. Beds are not cleaned after the previous guests. There is hardly any space to put your luggage in the room. There is no lock on the door. I stayed in the... More

I cannot say enough about Portree Independent Hostel and it's incredible staff. Pat, Gordon and Sarah are 3 of the kindest and funniest people I've ever met. They consistently went out of their way to help make my stay everything I hoped for it to be. Full of helpful information and tales to share, they are, to me, the Faeries... More

I've been in this lovely hostel in July. The hostel is near the biggest square in Portree and it's well linked with the main facilities of the city as the bus stop, the police station, the public toilets, the tourist office, banks, restaurants, supermarkets, shops. The staff is very friendly, delightful and very helpful. The hostel is quite, the kitchen... More

Perfect location, in the centre of Portree. Fantastic facilities and nice staff. I would definitely recommend it! Only disadvantage : no free wifi and the beds are not cleaned after people go. The city is lovely and very close to The Storr which is worth hiking !

I stayed here for 2 nights, and the staff, especially Pat and Gordon were so welcoming and friendly that I didn't want to leave. They have excellent knowledge of the area, and had lots of good suggestions for things to see and do. The bed was really comfy, and the kitchen was large, well stocked, light and airy. I'd definitely... More

We stayed in this hostel for two days and everything was very clean, a great big kitchen with a splendid view and very good facilities. The most remarkable, however, was the staff of the hostel who were always a team of young and old, experienced people. They helped us a lot in planning our trip and gave insider advice about...
