Hostel is easy to get to with a bus. Building itself doesn't look like hostel and not to mention that funeral house... so it is not that welcoming. Inside the hostel was clean with nice beds. But new pillows should be bought. They don't have a drying room,so there are not that much place to hang your wet clothes to... More

Hi, And many thanks for your review. The building isn't purpose built, but we do try to make it as welcoming as possible. I am aware of the issue with the heating in the common area and have put a temporary heater in pending a pump repair. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the atmosphere at the hostel, we're normally pretty...

I was there with my new wife on our honeymoon. After trying many B&B and hostels in Kyle of Lochalsh and Plockton ("no vacancies" in all of them), we were told there could be availability in there.

The common area and kitchen facilities were great but the rooms were damp and sheets were a bit worn out. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Firsty, location is not good at all as it is in the southern part of the island and the main attractions are in the central and north areas. Even of you have a car as we did, distances are not short.
