    It was a little hard to find the hostel, there was only one sign at the turn off, which we missed. It would have been nice if there was another sign along the way to confirm we were on the correct path. I liked that there were hiking trails right outside the door!

    Lovely stay in the nature

    My first hostel stay and it is better than expected. Staffs were nice and accommodating to our requests. Room is sparkling clean. Take break from the technology world and enjoy the nature as there is no reception or tv or wifi.

    Very clean hostel with comfortable beds. Walls are not well insulated, the owner did warn us, because of this we were quite cold, despite the heater been on and you could hear your neighborhood a lot. Also, no shops near by. Make sure to have all the food you need when you get there, closest spot is Portree where there is a grocery store( 30 mins away)

    Everything was clean. Staff were friendly. However the beds were terribly uncomfortable and the walls were paper thin. You could hear everything. Didn’t sleep a wink. Wouldn’t stay again.

    It is a really lovely hostel at the base of the mountain in Glenbrittle easy access to the beach and hiking. The staff was very kind and helpful.Only grumble was the walls were thin and you could hear everybody's comings and goings. However, I would highly recommend and I plan to use it again.

    It is what it is...

    This is basic, no frills accomodations. Think church or summer camp. The area is beautiful-the hostel not so much. The room was OK but there was dust and cobwebs etc. In the rafters. I noticed 'cause I was on the top bunk. The beds are worn and the walls thin. The bathrooms were surprisingly good--very clean and adequate for all guests. The hostel is very remote and your GPS won't take you to the right place so pay attention to the directions provided. Also, bring your own food and drink as there is nothing around there. If you are up for roughing it one night to enjoy some spectacular scenery -this is an OK stop.

    Remote hostel with thin walls no wifi

    Fantastic knowledgeable helpful staff. Neat place with great other guests as most are there for the adventure and outdoors. Great location to explore skye. And near a beach and neat streams and waterfalls. Considerate quiet guests only please.

    Great hostel

    First time I stayed in a hostel. I was pleasantly surprised. It was very clean, in a beautiful location near the fairy pools. Seperate men and womans bathrooms were just down the hall. Nice big kitchen for cooking. Beds were average but after a day of hiking who cares. Walls are pretty thin so bring your ear plugs. Friendly check-in.
