“Superb hostel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

Fantastic hostel situated in a magic location with views to Torridon on the mainland. Gavin & Annabel who run the place were very welcoming & informative. Huge kitchen with everything you could need, no getting under one another`s feet whilst cooking here. We camped outside & used the hostel facilities, but from what I saw the rooms looked good as well. Would recommend wholeheartedly & will definitely make a return visit.

This was the best hostel I have ever stayed at. We had been camping for the last 2 days and wanted a day of comfort in a hostel. Gavin, the man who owns the hostel was very nice and can chat about anything and make you feel very welcome. The building is well kept and the kitchen is so big that 4 different groups of people can cook at the same time. It was quiet, the room was nice and the view was amazing. I would highly recommend this place for anyone looking for a great place to stay. Price was fair and the hostel was well heated as well.

Bril accommodation ,comfortable, economic, friendly, clean, stacks of hot water, large kitchen and seating and meeting area, exceptional views.
Also exceedingly green with windmill power, heat exchangers what more could you want/need...
Bring in your own food and drink but Hotel next door if feeling flush.

This was a wonderful hostel, easily one of the best I've stayed in. Staff were incredibly friendly, beyond helpful and very welcoming (Gavin gave our daughter some home made tablet on Easter Sunday as a gift, such a lovely thing to do). The hostel was warm, super clean, well equipped and a pleasure to stay in. The kitchen and dining area are huge, clean, equipped with everything you could need to cook and the views are again, stunning. Our room was small, very clean, warm and the beds were incredibly comfortable. The views from the hostel are beautiful, the location is secluded (but near some of Skye's best 'attractions'). I would recommend going to Loch Shianta (a five minute drive and one of the most beautiful places I saw in Skye), The Quiraing, you can see from the hostel and is well worth a drive and a walk. Definitely take a care, the weather is unpredictable and it makes life so much easier. Overall, one of the best places to stay on Skye, you will not find better for the price and to be honest you would be hard pushed to find better at double the price. We will always stay there when we visit Skye from now on.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the top floors for a stunning view but if not available, all the common rooms h...

Having been to Skye on numerous occasions and having stopped at several hostels, this hoster is like living at the Ritz. It is situated with a panoramic view of the mainland looking towards Torridon and the Applecross peninsula. View is breathtaking.
Lounge, Kitchen / Eating area, Showers and Twin Room were immaculate and clean.
Both Gavin and Annabelle who own / run the hostel cannot be more helpful, even to the point where they have fresh eggs produced on site by their clutch of chickens daily.
If your looking for cheap, clean and friendly accomodation this is the place to be, its fabulous.

This hostel is a gem. It is well cared for and that shows in the way you as a guest are treated. The rooms are all spacious, clean and comfortable. There is a large kitchen area which is well equipped and clean. There are ample opportunities for recycling and the helpful hosts are always on hand with advice. To top it all the views are fantastic. You would be silly not to book this hostel our only regret is that we didn't book for more than two nights!
