This place was amazing and in such a beautiful town. The way it is set out is wonderful. Massive kitchen, lots of bathrooms with great pressure and temp in the shower. Beds were pretty comfortable and the rooms were clean. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is passing through or staying for a few days

The location is ideal, easy to find and central. There is free parking behind the hostel which is only 2 mins away. We were given a recommendation for food, 'The... More

Amazing hostel experience with fantastic staff - e.g. Gordon who will always give you good advice - definitely staying there if (and when) I return to Portree. Good and clean rooms with nice hot water in the showers.

Lovely hostel! The people are very friendly and provide good service. Great, clean kitchen with lots of space, very clean bathrooms and comfy beds. The door closes at 22.00, but you can get a key if you want to come back later, so no problem at all. I would definitely come back to stay here again!

I had a wonderful stay in that little hostel! The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, they gave me great tips on what to do on Skye, and answered all my (many) questions. The place is kept clean despite the many visitors coming and going, and it is warmed by bright colours, bright smiles, and very effective heaters. Not to... More

Easily one of the best places I've stayed in travelling! The common room is fantastic and feels like my lounge room back home, it has many DVDs and VCRs with classic movies and comfy couches to watch with other guests who join you for an awesome chill. The kitchen is HUGE and has literally everything you need! The biggest best... More

The bed was comfortable. The staff were awesome! Gordon in particular was very helpful and knowledgeable with the surrounding area and... More

Two friends and I traveled through Europe for a month, and this hostel was the best one we had by far. The staff was very friendly and winter ester in what we did each day. They were happy to give advice on where to go for whatever we needed or wanted to experience. The other guests were also really friendly... More

the Portree Independent Hostel was a great place to stay while we were doing our various hikes on the Isle of Skye. The hostel offers a huge kitchen with all the cooking facilities you could need to make your own breakfasts, lunches and dinners (for the thrifty travelers) and is very close to a grocery store (Co-Op just a 3...
