I arrived here off the cuff, after being told from the tourist information centre that there were beds available for the night. While a sign on the door said they were full, turned out they still had availability. The female 8 bed dorm (room 3) was quiet and out of the way. The kitchen is spacious and airy, with plenty...

Stayed here for two nights during my tour around the Highlands and this was my favourite accommodation by far. The owner is very helpful and will give you a laugh with his sarcastic humour, one night I came back very late and the owner was clearly worried about my whereabouts due to visitors getting lost/hurt etc during trails. The decor... More

I booked Portree Independent Hostel in January for our two day trip to Skye. I booked two rooms. Everything you would expect from a hostel at a great price. Super fast WiFi is provided. Helpful friendly staff will answer any questions you may have.

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

Recently stayed here and was very impressed with the hostel! We received a friendly and warm welcome from the gentleman on the reception on arrival, just how it should be. 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
