The original plan was to camp on Skye but we decided to go for a youth hostel instead in order to avoid the devillish midges which are ferocious. We arrived a the youth hostel, the staff was not really friendly, we checked in, went to the room and saw the hundred of midges waiting for us inside the room. The... More

Stayed in a dorm room, that was cramped and quite noisy. The hostel needs to be updated, feels like it hasnt been updated in a long time. Its location isnt convenient if dont have a car. The staff were helpful. Is probably one of the most run down syha ive stayed in.

We had the attic room with the spectacular bay view, through a small window though. The shared bathroom was just next to our room, and few steps further for the toilet. Everything were kept to the simplest and we were given the pillow cases, bed sheets and duvet covers- all in 4 sets. We were required to put on the... More

This place is excellent for travelling on a budget. The price is very friendly and the quality is so much better than what I have seen for a higher price. We have stayed in a room with four beds, which was a bit small for this, but not too crammed. The common areas were nice, not particularly atmospheric, but they... More

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

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
