Scrupulously clean hostel with well stocked, pleasant kitchen and lots of space for several groups to sit to eat. Very friendly with organised spaces for everyone to leave food in their own tray. Hot water for drinks ready at all times. Great!

Tips:

After a long tiring day in the hills we bought fresh pasta at the Co-op just half a mile away and were eating our dinner within about ten minutes of getting back to the hostel. If budget allows we had a good meal at the Clachan and I think there's also a fish and chip shop nearby. Our pint at the Sligachan after our day's climbing was stellar.

I stayed for two nights here. The room was clean and tidy. Same as showers and toilet room. It never felt too crowded. The kitchen is well kept, I believe also because in general the people staying was nice and tidy. The staff I met, Adam and Alexa are very friendly and helpful. For example I had a headache and Alexa helped me to find some painkillers. Location is fantastic to have it as your basecamp, it is very close to little cafés and a supermarket. Easy to park and a marvellous view from the hostel.

Tips:

The Co-op and a service station are close to the hostel, which is quite practical. Location is pretty good if you arrive late to the Isle and want to arrive quickly and then keep exploring other further places as Portree.

Loved my stay at skye base camp. Lovely big kitchen well equipped with everything a traveler could need. Immaculately clean and big island bench to prep food so heaps of room even with a few in the space. And open early till late. Really kind and helpful staff. Lovely lounge space with pool table overlooking the sea. All very easy and organized. Comfortable beds and warm toasty room I could completely black out and get a good nights sleep.

Tips:

On the local bus route so I could use public transport to get to most tourist spots and walks I wanted to see. Even a small health food shop in Broadford which was a great find! And the local cafe/restaurant Sia (walking distance) has amazing food! Plus a Co-op to buy groceries to cook your own.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The comunal area is great and the rooms are also very cozy :) And waking up to a sea side view is not bad either ;)

Tips:

Drive around the island! Go up north and do the loop there (So many nice stops on the way)! Hiking up to Old Man of Storr is so worth it as well. And if you got time and the weather is good, go and watch the sunset at Elgol - you won't regret it :)

We loved the common kitchen which had all the dishes and utensils we could need to cook, & it was a treat seeing Cleodi the dog walking around to greet the guests :) Cannot recommend Skye Basecamp enough!

The atmosphere at Skye Basecamp was second to none. From the moment you walk in the door you’re greeted by the friendliest staff who show you around the large communal spaces. The beds are comfortable and the showers the best we’ve had in any hostel stay. The ample free parking out the front was a huge bonus, definitely felt safe.

Tips:

We had dinner just down the road at the Hebridean Inn and that was delicious. The walks at the Fairy Pools and the Old man of Storr are not to be missed.

This hostel is one of the best I've ever stayed in (and I've been to many around the world). The staff and owners have setup a space that really takes into consideration what a traveler will need. Everything from a drying room for all the wet hiking clothes, to a dream kitchen to cook in, "free food" boxes so food doesn't go to waste when a traveler leaves and can't take it with them. The showers were hot, the rooms and bathrooms were spotlessly clean, and all the staff were friendly and helpful. It also seemed to attract chill people, so it was a great mixture of socializing but also getting quality sleep and rest. Kudos to this team!

Tips:

If you want to beat crowds, head to Elgol. The drive there from Basecamp is spectacular and very few tourists.

Nice friendly place with plenty of parking. Centrally located so good base from which to explore Skye at a reasonable price. As a couple we had our own room with en-suite rather than stay in a bunk room which suited us fine. Self catering facilities were excellent, with identifiable containers that you can place your food in the fridges.

Tips:

There is a large Co-op supermarket not far away that you can get all you need for self-catering and a great fish and chip shop a bit further on.

Top of hostel: really nice and cozy atmosphere! Nice location and comnfortable beds! It has a bit of loss of air in the room during the night but that was it! Nothing else to complain! Very nice (and clean, and big) kitchen where to enjoy meals and a comfortable living room with an amazing view!

Basecamp is a good starting point for trips on the isle of Sky. The rooms are simple and rather small but clean, good beds and attached bathrooms. The kitchen is clean, huge, well equipped and we liked the possibility to use or leave things you do not need anymore. Laundry available.very nice and helpful staff. Good public rooms with pool. We enjoyed our stay there.

Go up north to watch wales and dolphins and go hiking at Glenbrittel.

First and foremost communication is easy with your team. Regardless of whether it’s email or calling in, I have had quick responses and always spoke to someone pleasant. Finding the place I appreciated the detailed instructions and even driving to the place the signs directing you to the hostel were most helpful. I stayed in the 5 bedroom private room. The cleanliness cannot be faulted, the room was comfortable- my only complaints was being on the ground floor, the upstairs neighbours walking is noisy but to be fair that’s not something the hostel owners can control and there was esr plugs offered to buy. I was pleasantly surprised by the facilities. The communal areas were clean, inviting and comfortable. I personally didn’t use any of the kitchen facilities but confident it had everything I would need. I acknowledged other members staying there could cook a meal and enjoy comfortably. I definitely appreciated the drying room for all our wet stuff from walks. Oh the views from the hostel was lovely as well. I was pleasantly surprised by the stay and have no complaints. Thank you for accommodating us

Tips:

The harbour restaurant excellent (if you’re plaiting bills though know your maths) Drive to Fairy Pools and Old Man Storr straight forwards from the accommodation.

We did travel out to see places, but that was the purpose of our trip. There’s a lovely little restaurant a 5 minute walk away, however it gets really busy. The staff were really friendly and got us seated as soon as they could. You have good access to roads to make you trips out accessible. Overall a good area.

I throughly enjoyed my stay. As soon as I saw the front entrance of the hostel I thought the vibe was fantastic, I was greeted with friendly staff and shown all the facilities. I felt right at home, free tee and coffee and fantastic kitchen facilities. Cleodi the hostel dog was my absolute favourite she is such a beautiful edition to the hostel! I would 100% come back and recommend the stay for my friends and fellow travellers :))

Tips:

Plenty to see! Go for a walk along the waterfront (plenty of maps on the hostel to show you). Go for hikes, visit the local shops and coffee shop, great food! Jump in a car (I got in with some people from my hostel) and visit the fairy pools/fairy Glen, walk the old man storr ! So much to see and do!

Loved my stay at Skye Basecamp!! I had only planned to stay for three nights, but extended it to a whole week. My room was nice and bright with both mountain and ocean view, and I even had a real and very comfortable bed, not a bunk :-) Everything was really clean and I also liked the kitchen and common rooms. Oh, and the drying room was a blessing after wet days! The BEST part however are the lovely people working there. They gave me lots of great ideas for hiking off the beaten path and were always super friendly and helpful - even borrowed me their guitar! Thanks a lot for making my time on Skye so special - mòran taing agus mar sin leibh!

Tips:

The "Coffee Bothy" next door has great cakes and soups (and a dog), and the Siaway Fish & Chips had a vegan version that was very delicious! Broadford Bay and the Irishman's Point make a woderful walk in the evening during sunset.

We really enjoyed our stay at Skye Basecamp and will recommend it to others. However, the car parking arrangement needs to be improved as we found ourselves blocked in one morning when we had an early start. We noticed we were blocked in the previous evening and pointed it out at reception but you seemed unable to get the car moved. If staying again I will probably park elsewhere- or not leave enough room behind me for anyone else to park without blocking the road.

Tips:

We enjoyed climbing in the Cuillin (Skye Guides were excellent). Ble Bheinn is also well worth climbing. Camas Darrioch beach is fantastic. We enjoyed meals at The Broadford Hotel and The Claymore.

We had the best stay at Basecamp. I could not recommend it more. It was clean, the shower was really powerful and hot. ALL THE STAFF WERE AWESOME. The kitchen was the biggest/ most well stocked & user friendly hostel kitchen I have ever used. 10/10 for everything.

Tutte le persone che lavorano per L’ostello sono molto amichevoli, simpatiche e disponibili a dare informazioni. L’ostello è curato e anche e ho trovato il letto davvero comodo. Ci tornerei subito.

Tips:

Bellissima location con vista sul mare e che consente di fare passeggiate e scalate sulle montagne vicine partendo direttamente dall’ostello senza prendere alcun mezzo. Supermercato vicino aperto 24/24, alcuni ristoranti e piccoli negozi di artigianato nelle immediate vicinanze

Tips:

The walk to Torrin is lovely and scenic, with a great cafe at the end which lots of lovely cakes! Additionally, Lean to coffee, a cafe just outside Broadford was really nice and near some beach walks which were very pretty!

Skye Basecamp was an absolutely delightful Hostel run by helpful and kind staff. The internet speed is fast (I did some remote work) and the hostel is conveniently located near public transport and the Co-Op which were both necessities for me as I do not have a car. The kitchen and communal spaces are well equipped and clean. I stayed for 2 nights and ended up staying for a third. If this hostel is a potential option for you I highly recommend that you check it out.

Basecamp is just perfect for a Cuillin explorer and from that point of view the location is also excellent (but I rate it good simply because I don't want to appear too narrow-minded!). Favourite fantastic facility has to be the drying room for clothes and boots etc as well as the proximity of wise and wonderful Skye Guides.

This is the best kitchen i have ever seen in a youth hostel in my entire life. Also : big thanks to everyone in the staff, you guys are all great

Tips:

If you want to go to the fairy pools, try going from Sligachan. Much less people take this trail, it's much more peacefull and the scenery is beautifull : you go to the pools following a little river. It's a bit muddy, but very worth it, and ideal for beginners, as it's a 1h30/2h treck without that much level.

A super-clean hostel with the outdoors person in mind. Though I just left I'm already planning my next stay. The staff was not only extraordinarily welcoming and helpful, but sincere. The hostel has a really wonderful vibe, while also being orderly and accommodating. I wouldn't really think to stay elsewhere.

Tips:

Travellers should have in mind the main modes of transport around the island--Stagecoach and Citilink. Hop on the WIfi early in the morning for the best luck in researching whatever you need to look up. Catch the first bus of the day to wherever you'd like to go--this way there's plenty of time to do what you'd like to do and catch the last bus in time (if you have long hikes in mind). If you're not driving, plan your day with the two different bus schedules the night before (stagecoach or citilink:) Also, Coffee Bothy is the bomb!

This hostel is well-run and welcoming with a staff that really cares for travelers. Clean, excellent showers, quiet by 11pm, cozy linens. The kitchen and common areas are ample--busy dinner time is like cooking with a big international family! The location can't be beat--a very short walk to the grocery store, an incredible view of the bay from the living room picture windows, bus stops abound, and gorgeous hikes and short drives close by. I really enjoyed my time here and would definitely return.

Tips:

There are lots of beautiful hikes, drives and sightseeing within a short distance from the hostel. I recommend Sleat. Armadale and Elgol (Misty Isles boat tour was stunning). Local shops have tips for lovely walks, and I found that this part of Skye was not so crowded with tourists. For travelers looking for organic food, the Selkie Collective, just north past the Coop, has bulk foods and organic fruits and veg.

Basecamp works perfectly for a walking or climbing trip. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Well organised communal kitchen (Coop close by to buy your food) and a good drying room. Room was very clean and comfortable, bring your own shower gel.

Tips:

Harbour restaurant and Hebridean Inn both good for food but can get quite busy so booking advisable. Take a guide if you are planning to go on the Cuillin Ridge - my Gillian sourced through Skye Guides was fantastic

Lovely hostel with a very friendly vibe. The family that run it are very welcoming, and have a good knowledge of the local area. Well equipped kitchen that feels more like a home kitchen than the industrial feeling ones that many hostels have. Very good clean powerful showers. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Skye.

Go for a walk from sligachan - the views of the Cuillin are amazing there, and it didn't take long to drive from the hostel

We'll be back!

The Harbour Restaurant is amazing. Climb Blabhein. Just enjoy! And be patient - it does rain a lot. But then when the rain stops, it's all worth it :)

Perfect location to explore the Island. Facilities all well provided and clean. Broadford is great as a base- garage, supermarket, pubs and plenty of nice places to eat. We also bagged a Munro, Sgurr Nam Gillean, one of the technical ones, with the guidance and expertise of Mike and Jennie of Skye Guides - an amazing day out and highly recommended.

Tips:

1. Take a Skye Guides tour - the black Cuillins are very technical but the guides enabled us to tackle a peak we never would have done alone. 2. Day out in Elgol with a boat trip on the Misty Isle and a walk (2 to 3hrs) around Loch Coruisk.

A fantastic stay with the University of Manchester Hiking Club. Couldn't have asked for anything more! Lovely rooms and facilities. Overall, an excellent location to stay in. Very friendly hosts Cat and Mike. Mike's vast knowledge of the island was invaluable! Thank you for having us.

Tips:

Sgurr na Banachdaich, Bla Bheinn, Bruach na Frithe are 3 of the easier Munros that are definitely worth attempting. Storr, Quiraing, Fairy pools, Neist point for sunset all worth a visit. Definitely recommend a trip to the bothy on Raasay. Visit the Coffee Bothy for their excellent cakes!

I really love this place. The self check-in was fast and the team prepared a lovely small envelope for room password. And I have to say the kitchen is one of the best. You can literally find everything you need from kitchen appliances to cookwares. Coffee, cereal, jam and other necessary sauces are all provided. The view from the game room is superb, which can see directly at the ocean. It would be a bit of pity that the time we stayed there, the food places on that street was basically all closed.

Tips:

There are actually several food places on that street but need to check the opening time in advance. You can find an Co-op within walking distance if you would like anything. Do leave some time for yourself to enjoy the beautiful seaview from the hostel. That can be so calming and relieving.

The Co-op is the best stocked on the island and is open 7-10pm as well as hosting a 24hr garage.

I visit Scottish hostels regularly and would say this is one of the best I’ve stayed in. Well equipped, good facilities and friendly staff. As a hill walker/Munro bagger, the hostel is a bit of a drive from the Cullins but has the advantage of local restaurants, supermarket, petrol etc. Maybe the absolutely ideal location is impossible !

Also all visitors respected the quiet time after 11 pm which was a boon after a whole day out walking! Also a great drying room! Pint sized but very efficient. We all really enjoyed ourselves.

Tips:

Lower Breakish was lovely to swim in and we were joined by a seal who came to check us out. Also the only place I've seen a sea otter is whilst walking and chatting quietly to friends on the rocks to the south of the pier in Broadford! An unexpected gift on our last day on Skye.

Booked the entire hostel for a group weekend in Skye. In truth, it felt more like an Air BnB than a hostel - clean, tidy and with good showers. Nice big kitchen, other facilities and it's located neatly in Broadford which is not far from the Skye Bridge. Catorina and her staff were most helpful and I would recommend Skye Basecamp - in my backpacking days I stayed in hostels around the world and this is one of those places with its own character.

Tips:

Our group took the Isle of Skye Seafari experience in Portree - thoroughly recommended. Lots to see and do on Skye - be sure to book a few days at least - you can't see it all in one trip.

The staff is really helpful, the place perfectly clean, comfortable rooms, pool table in the living room, big and clean kitchen... We only have good things to say about it! If we'd known, we would have stayed another night!

It's a really nice place to stay if visiting Skye, as it is a good starting and finishing point for going around the isle.

All very good, we enjoyed our stay and the communication with Catriona. We didn't use the kichen, but the room was clean and the shower worked great.

Tips:

We just had time to visit the Storr and the Fairy Pools which we absolutely loved and fully recommend. You will need at least a couple of hours for each, plus the time it gets to get there and back (35 to 45 mins each way)

Very welcoming, and very flexible and good at communicating given we had to move our dates due to the lockdown. Spotlessly clean, with clear instructions for distancing and sanitising communal spaces after use. Will definitely use again once travel restrictions are lifted.

Friendly welcome and great location. Shame I didn't know about the unavailability of the drying room. Made for a couple of damp days in the hills. But I do get that this was a temporary Covid-19 related change. Shower was powerful and plentiful hot water.

Tips:

The Local Chippy is amazing (Siaway)

Mike and Catriona are excellent hosts and have an excellent and very well appointed clean and modern style of bunk house/smaller private rooms suitable for a range of outdoor enthusiasts or simply travellers to the wonderful Isle of Skye.

Tips:

Broadford has an excellent range of places to eat and is a superb location for south Skye but is also easily accessible for farther North. Go explore.

Skye Basecamp is a really good place to stay for everybody planning a trip to the Isle. It is very easy to reach your destinations from Bradford, especially if you are hitchhiking and the hostel itself is clean, you have access to a really nice kitchen and the Staff is very kind as well. Just generally a very good hostel.
