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... More

We stayed in a room of 6 and it was great. The bed was so soft and nice , huge kitchen and friendly staff who willing to give direction for nearby attraction. This B&B hostel located in the center of Portree, with clean hotel room and nice hang out area for TV and games downstairs.

We stayed on the third floor of this hostel last night, in a room with a double bed, a bunk bed and a single bed. It was only half full tho, thankfully. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful, answering our questions and attending to our needs. Location is excellent - right in the centre of town. No free wifi, though... More

Right in the centre of Portree, with a big free car park next door. We stayed in a room of 8, and it was great. Beds were comfy, all the shared facilities were immaculate, and the kitchen was great, with lots of space, storage, and seating. The owner was incredibly knowledgeable of the island, and so friendly!

In the heart of Portree, very easy to find with a free car park out the back. Welcoming and knowledgeable staff who have great recommendations. The kitchen is clean and well equipped. Bunks and bathrooms are clean. Whether you are backpacking or not this is a fabulous place to stay on the cheap.

I have rated this property VERY GOOD based on it's location and it's price compared to others in the area and not on it's cleanliness or quality of amenities. I stayed in the Portree Independent Hostel in October last year with a group of friends whilst touring on motorcycles. The accommodation was very cheap for this part of the world,... More

Pros: - HUGE, very well stocked kitchen and dining area with lovely views - Very friendly welcome from the helpful proprietors - Clean and comfortable rooms, painted in cheerful colors, a bright spot on rainy days - With regular bus service to Glasgow and several great shops and pubs just steps away, the location is the best spot in Skye...

Really enjoyed my week's stay in this hostel. I was very worried about it because I'm a middle aged Surrey housewife who has never stayed alone in a hostel. I need not have worried. This place is spotlessly clean (well almost!), has a better equipped kitchen than me, has very friendly, helpfulll, upbeat staff and all the very varied quests... More

Good things about this hostel - good location in centre of town, VERY large kitchen and dining area. Not good - wifi non-existent, rooms not overly clean, 6 beds crammed in a small room. Building cold and damp feeling. Staff not very attentive - took a long time to check in unnecessarily.

Had a great time in Portree in the middle of winter on a Sunday, most thanks to Pat and his friends. Good chats, a couple of drinks, and football on the tele. I was lucky enough to bunk with a chef, and you may have the good fortune of someone cooking for you too, but you just have to time... More
