I have stayed, worked and lived in a lot of hostels in Europe and I can say that this is one of the best I have ever seen. Huge and clean kitchen, big and lovely rooms, clean toilets. The building is so colourful and the staff is very friendly, especially the manager! The hostel is in the "city centre" of... More

This is a cracking hostel. It feels like the management really knows what makes a hostel tick - the facilities are sparkling and functional, with everything you'd need just to hand. I particularly liked the fluffy shower mats - such a difference from the usual cold, wet floors you might encounter! When I was cooking tea, I declared this to... More

My friend and I stayed in a two bunk beds room (NO. 7) in June this year. It was a great stay. ROOM: not too roomy but good enough for us to move around. With a tall window facing to the city road which could be a bit noisy at times. It was quite a clean and comfy place to... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at Portree Independent Hostel! They were very organized and clear and well-cleaned. Sometimes there were too many people for how many bathrooms there are, but this did not become an issue often. Their kitchen is very roomy which definitely helped us with budgeting our meals! They are also INCREDIBLY knowledgeable of things to do for... More

This was everything you could want in a hostel: comfy bed, great staff, large kitchen, spacious hot showers, great location, decent price... I could go on! Minor criticisms are wifi range didn't reach to my room (#1), and there were only 3 outlets in the room for 12 people (more available in common areas). Biggest asset is the amazing staff!... More

Very good location in the center of Portree. For people with a car, there's a public parking lot 50 meters away. It was free when I was there (end of May). The kitchen is big, clean, well-furnished and organized, with free tea and coffee. Good, very hot showers with plenty of room to change. The dorm with 8 beds (room... More

All amenities provided in the kitchen. Very pleasant and friendly host in Gordon, nothing was too much trouble. We travelled as a 3 and shared a 4 bed dorm. Good sleep surprisingly quiet given the hostel size, everyone was very respectful. Great location and Gordon will make sure you go to the right places.

I was really impressed with the facilities in the kitchen, since the kitchen is really well-equipped. Also, the staff was very friendly and passionate. Rooms are clean and lovely. The only drawback was the shared shower. The heater is too far to feel warm after taking a bath.

We spent 2 nights here during our Highland holiday, and had no complaints at all. Having never stayed in a shared dorm before was a little unsure what to expect, but needn't have worried. It was actually a four bed family room we were in, and I was really chuffed as I managed to bag the double bed. The hostel... More
