Room was okay for a short stay. The hostel is not near anything and quite a walk from the main road (public transport) especially in the rain. I found the staff member that served us to be very strange. The hostel is boring with no atmosphere. Good if you just want to catch up on sleep.

Very cramped dorms and lacking in atmosphere or character. Ok for a cheap overnighter but not a comfortable base to explore Skye, even if you're used to the hostel style of lodging. Facilities are on par with all SYHA hostels, and fairly clean for a busy hostel. The location is quite good with a nice footpath into town and a... More

The location of this SYHA hostel is lovely - don't miss a trip to the pier and look for the Edward V11 post box in the wall. However, the hostel is, in spite of repainting and some other cosmetic renovation, still in the last century. The staff (hardworking I know) need training on how not to confuse non-English speakers. And... More

The building was a bit cold and austere and could do with a bit of a refit. The communal rooms and bedrooms were dimly lit which did not make them inviting. The one big problem was the paper thin walls and the bedroom doors which had a closing system that made them crash with an almighty thud all day and... More

We stayed at Broadford for 2 nights and it was really a lovely little place to relax. The kitchen is very well equipped and clean. The room we had was great for us travelling as a group of three. The staff were very helpful and gladly answered any questions we had. It is very close to town and you can... More

Excellent place to stay. Travelled alone for a week and had the single room. Fantastic value for money. Separate male and female dorms. Not ideal of you are travelling with your girlfriend. The best part is the location, with a fantastic view. The rooms could have been a bit bigger, but fit the price, it's great. Good sized kitchen and... More

I was gone during the days, so for me it wasn't a problem, but you are not allowed to go into your room during the day, which is weird, because you pay for your room and bed for the entire day & night. The wi-fi costs 1 pound per 20 min. There are no latters on the bed, so if... More

When we arrived the lady at reception was very friendly and helpful. She told us we could save money by joining the SYHA. The 4 person shared room was perfectly clean and tidy except there was a chocolate wrapper under one of the beds but what bother is that? The kitchen facilities were excellent: plenty of equipment and storage space... More

We stayed here as part of a tour group to Skye, having the place exclusively booked out for our party. We were in a family room of four on the quiet second floor. There was a shower next to our room, Room 15, which was excellent, better than some five-star hotels I have been in. The hostel faces onto the... More

I stayed here for one night, I had a single room which was good. It was clean enough. I wouldn't say the breakfast was worth the extra I paid. The only other minor complaint would be that all the doors in the building seemed to have very strong closing mechanisms, so would slam quite often and be heard on other... More
