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. This hostel lacked a place to dry clothes and shoes after a hike. There was also only three toilets that were in order which was not enough in the morning while there were quite many... More

Hi, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay, and appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. I do agree some of our bedding is looking a little tired however we have recently replaced many of our duvets and pillows, and will be looking to renew the duvet covers, sheets and pillow cases etc. over the course of the season....

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. Mind that everything closes at 9 pm so you may get nothing to dinner if you arrive late, which... More

I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Broadford Backpackers hostel, and did not come to speak to me regards to your concerns during your stay. I feel one star is harsh, and I note that all of your reviews are either one or five stars with nothing in between. The hostel is located in the South Eastern... More

We couldn't find any beds on the whole island and this place accepted us at 11pm at nite. Beds were clean, rooms clean, decent shower and good kitchen. Close to bank, shop, garage, sea and amazing mountains.. Can't really fault this place as a backpackers but does share a building with a funeral director which is a bit weird with... More

Hi Sunny, I'm glad I was able to help! Pre-booking on skye is definitely recommended. You can always give us a call if you need a bed, as we do not sell all of our accommodation online. I hope to see you back again soon. More

We stayed in the hostel for a night in June. It was quite busy but all the staff and people who stayed there were extremely nice so it didn't feel packed at all. We enjoyed the lovely garden with a swing and a fireplace and a cool living room with lots of space. The hostel has their own hens wondering... More

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave a review of our hostel, and I'm happy you had a comfortable sleep on our new beds and mattresses. The kitchen does close at 22:30 for fire safety reasons, but tea/coffee and food storage are available 24 hours. We look forward to welcoming you back! More

One of the cheapest places around. Ugly interior (the classic psychedelia hostel theme) and horrible logo. The reception is not opened during the afternoon, even of the staff is there its impossible to check in before 17:00, the lift is out of order and have tured into a creepy place where they store the cleaning stuff, interesting... There is a... More

The location was fine, though I might recommend Portree more as it has better access to tours and buses to other cities. One major issue was that the kitchen was locked during hours it was supposed to be open, particularly in the morning. This made leaving on time for activities difficult. The wifi is also very temperamental. No breakfast, but... More

Hi there and many thanks for your review of our hostel. I'm sorry the kitchen was not open on time during your stay. Please be assured this has been addressed and it is opened each morning at 7:00 am.

Stayed here one night whilst in Skye but it's what you expect from a hostel in Scotland. The furniture looks like what you would find in a charity shop (I.e. Cast offs from the locals...nothing wrong with that but typical for Scottish youth hostels) The room (no. 8) was ok, but there was mould around the windows which gave the... More

This is a basic but friendly hostel on the amazing island of Skye and was a good base for a weekend of mountain climbing & cycling. The hostel needs some attention and is a little shabby but it was cheap enough. The beds in our twin room were saggy with faded sheets but it was nice and clean. As a... More

Nice relaxed staff, friendly and helpful with ideas of what to do on the island. Warm and very comfortable beds, better than most hostels. Amazing warm showers, and a tree swing. Nice places to relax like a lovely lounge area and a BBQ and fire pit downstairs. Free coffee and tea. Would come here again.
