I've been to the hostel in december '13. I've met a very helpful staff and some nice people who where also staying there. The overall impression is more then ok. They have a big professional kitchen with lots of room for people to interact and eat with each other. Rooms, bathroom, toilet, facilities are clean and well organised.
The hostel is located in a central location in a (small village) Portree. It is close to the busstation, which gets you to and from all parts of Skye. Also in the neighbourhood are a few pubs, a supermarket, a bicycle rent and all other facilities that you can expect from a village. Since it's at a central location in Skye, it is easy to make day trips to any part of Skye.
One minor thing. However this wasn't for me a problem. The hostel itself doesn't have any wifi available. You can go to the pub, where you can make use of their free wifi.
My overall impression is very good and satisfied. Price vs facilities are also very good.
