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.

One of the top hostels I’ve stayed in, and I’ve stayed in a lot these last 6 months. A great base for exploring Skye especially if you catch the ferry from Mallaig or are taking public transport from the mainland - the main bus stop is under 15 mins walk away. Super clean, cosy, homely and with a amazing kitchen and great shower block. Mike the manager went above and beyond to ensure I had a blast while on Skye, from helping with wet weather gear, to advice on walks and great banter. Loved my stay!

Tips:

I’m sure you could spend a whole lifetime in Skye and not get bored of all the walks. Would recommend for a short and easy one: Scorrybreac circuit from Portree. Old Man of Storr was so good and the bus drops you right at the start. While the buses weren’t super frequent when I was there because it was the low season, it’s definitely doable and you see some amazing scenery particularly from Portree round the north peninsula to Uig. The Co-op supermarket in Broadford is really well stocked.

Skye Basecamp is an awesome place to stay! There is such a friendly and welcoming vibe. I had many a laugh and met some truly great humans here. The facilities are super clean and the space is really welcoming. There is also a car pooling notice board among the guests which i thought was a neat idea. Didn’t stay for long enough and can’t wait to go back!

The showers/toilets and your kitchen and dining area are the best parts of the hostel. It feels so luxurious for the price that we are paying. Thank you for a great experience at Skye Basecamp! Drying room could be better ventilated and, even better, heated for more effective drying. Showers could do with a shelf inside for putting soap and shampoo to avoid bending down, but that's just pushing my luck ;)

Tips:

Having a car is quite useful for exploring Skye, do consider renting if you don't own one in the UK! Always be prepared for foul weather, regardless of current situation or weather forecast.

I had a great time the staff were so friendly, it felt like home. A special mention to Micheal,who was so helpful and a good laugh. I lived the kitchen area well stocked and good fridge space. The Cherfields were so comfy. There so much information about Skye, from walks to wild life very impressed. He beds were comfy and clean. I actually told people I was at Basecamp the think I was on Mt.Everest, not a lie just not all the information. I'm for sure coming back next year.

Tips:

Shops are a bit far so being plenty of food and drink with you. Oh and a bottle of whisky is good for breaking the ice with fellow travelers

Lovely hostel within walking distance to shops and cafes. Kitchen had ample space for everyone and the showers were great. I especially loved the guest sketch book, I've never seen this before and it's a brilliant idea! I wish all hostels had one

Tips:

If you're relying on public transport make sure you're aware of the bus times as they stop returns to Broadford quite early but that's A problem across Skye. Enjoy your stay!

We had a four bed bedroom for a family of four with two sons 10+12. The room was clean tidy and had a nice view to the sea. The shared toilets were clean on the three days of our stay, so were the showers and the common kitchen. We enjoyed to cook our own dinners and make our own breakfast after 10 days on pub lunches / dinners and sandwiches and full Scottish breakfast. There were boxes for our food which could be labelled and we packed our cooled food in our labelled cool bag in one of the three large freezers.

Tips:

There is a billard table in the Basecamp and you can wash and dry your clothes (ca. 30min. each) incl. detergent for a reasonable price. And you can drink a beer or coffee in the nice sitting room while the washing is done. They have also a drying room for wet clothes and hiking boots with air dehumidifier. In front of the house there are several Basecamp parking lots.

We had an extremely warm and friendly welcome at reception including the lovely gesture of free tea and coffee at anytime, sitting in the beautiful lounge and reading all the mountain books. The location is amazing and the window views are stunning. Really bright, light and very spacious building with free parking.

Tips:

There is a really lovely cafe about 1 minute walk out the front door to the right which is open on Sundays too. It is also easy to walk into the main town with pubs and restaurants. Just check times as they can stop serving food around 9 pm in town. The co-op is also really near and you can make your own meals in the huge base camp kitchen. There are also Mountain Guides available.

Besides the fact that at home I don't step out of the door and have the most amazing view at the sea, neither do I have such a perfectly equipped and super big kitchen. I wouldn't know what to improve at Skye Basecamp, to me it already is the best place to spend some time off.

Tips:

Stay at least for two days! There is so so much to see and once you're there you won't want to leave. Also, if somehow possible, go by car.

Very friendly and helpful staff especially the staff who we called 'Kira' (sorry that we have forgotten how to spell your name correctly). The seaview room is great for 3 of us, we appreciate everything found in Skye Basecamp.

Tips:

Very close to Coop that you can basically buy anything you needed from food to sanitary. We walked to the Irish Point and enjoyed the refreshing breeze of Skye.

The location of the hostel was excellent and the view in the morning was fantastic. Love the service of the staff (sorry i forgot your name) and he is always ready to assist when needed. One down side is the toilet shower area is a little dark in our room as the light is situated in the centre yet the layout is longer than usual. But the common bathroom were great! The beds/comforter were a pleasant surprise and all of us slept soundly through the night.

Tips:

Good to rent a car so that it will be easier to travel around. There is no need to worry about food as there are many places to eat in Broadford and even in Portree Square. If you enjoy cooking, there is a co-op store around 5-10min walk away so you can buy from there.

I had a fantastic time staying at Skye Basecamp. Mike, one of the owners who is a climbing instructor was extremely helpful and generous with his time in giving advice about where to go to experience Skye in the fullest way possible. Malcolm and Yvo were also extremely welcoming and helpful, as were other staff members. The hostel is very clean, the beds are comfy, the shower is really powerful, the kitchen is spacious and there was a really friendly atmosphere between guests. I would definitely recommend this place and will be returning to visit.

Tips:

The hostel is located very near a co-op supermarket so very easy to buy and prepare your own food. I hitch-hiked around the island and found this a great way to get around as I didn’t have a car. There is also a bus route running very nearby and easy to get from Armadale to the hostel by bus. Take advice from the staff at the hostel about where to visit! They will help you get the best out of your trip! Enjoy.

THe only niggle I had was the stiff spring on the room door (Room5) It was too stiff for Jean to open, so she could not access the room on her own. I guess this spring is for fire regulations, but this is self defeating, because if she was in the room on her own and there was a fire she would be trapped!

We were two females, staying for two evenings in a 4-bed room. The first evening we were paired with 2 other female travellers. However the second evening 2 men were placed in our room, while there were other females in the hostel. I would have preferred to be paired with other females, even if I that meant moving rooms. In my opinion, hostels should aim as far as possible to place people of same sex together in rooms, and I feel that base camp could have done this better

Lovely spot to base yourself in before you drive around the isle. The kitchen is huge and we enjoyed cooking and prepping our meals there. Very thoughtful considerations. Free parking and near to a pier, supermarket and a petrol kiosk. Overall, highly recommended!

There’s a deli gasta nearby the hostel that serves excellent wraps.

Tips:

Fabulous spot with good access to the rest of this wonderful island. Elgol (boat trips), Sligachan (easy access to the Cuillin) and Portree (shopping and eating) are all within easy reach. Worth chatting to the staff who are very knowledgeable about the island.

So pleased we chose to stay here! Very friendly, comfy beds, great showers, all the facilities we needed.

Tips:

Excellent pizza at CafeSia in Broadford. Blue Shed at Torrin is definitely worth the drive. If you want to run/walk directly from Broadford, take the footpath by the river (beside the Elgol road); it leads onto the Elgol road for a few hundred meters but then you can go onto the 'Marble Path' across the moor for several km of great trails.

The Hostel was so central and easy to find-with perfect views looking out over the water. Really nice mix of people staying and the staff were fab and easy to approach, as well as being very helpful about the local area. Plenty of bathrooms and shower rooms- particularly appreciated the drying room and having somewhere quiet to sit and read at night. Thouroughly recommend- a great place to stay whatever your plans on the Island!

Tips:

Loads to do! I’d recommend getting to the more touristy spots early or late in the day to avoid the worst of the crowds- more for parking than anything. If your budget isn’t too tight, the pizza along the road at (Cafe Lia?) was great but the coffee was truly amazing- staff clearly know what they are doing with the machine- makes all the difference!

It would have been perfect if the other guests had not been so loud chatting, laughing and walking in the corridor until midnight. I would not recommend to those who go to sleep early. But apart from that, it was very good for the price: clean and comfy bedroom, kitchen to cook one's own food, super friendly staff... I would definitely stay there again when I come back to Skye.

Honestly (I wasn’t paid to say this) I’ve stayed at a lot of hostels and this is by far one of the nicest places I’ve ever stayed at! The beds were the comfiest beds I’ve ever slept on! Nicer than my bed at home. The mattress is just so insanely thick! I fortunately got the entire 5 bed room to myself which was a nice break from constantly being around other people. The staff was beyond nice and made me feel at home from the first moment I checked it. My only regret is that I didn’t stay longer but I would definitely stay here again! The bathrooms were insanely clean and there was lots of them (so that I as never waiting to use them). There wasn’t any lockers in the room but I didn’t mind because of the chill, trusting vibe of the hostel.

Tips:

I definitely recommend the fish and chips shop on the main drag there and the coop is a short walk from the hostel to get all you necessities! Also I recommend doing the walk by the water in the evenings! It’s a quick walk and is really pretty!

Skye Basecamp was the perfect place to stay for a trip to the Isle of Skye. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, and you won’t find a better guy than Chris. The rooms were well kept and clean, and the location served as a great jumping point to go to all of the best places on the Isle of Skye. I was able to do a load of laundry there too, which was an extra bonus. I can’t recommend this place enough!

Tips:

Great grocery store just down the road (I think it’s technically called a co-op, but I’m American so it seemed like a cross between a convenience store and grocery store). Anyway, it has great food and allows you to avoid eating out if you want.

What an amazing stay at Skye Basecamp! Carolina, Mike, and Chris we're all so hospitable and wonderful. They kept up such a nice space and beautiful kitchen for all the guests. Mike helped me find a place for some mountain climbing and even lent me gear to use! He leads trips if you would like to go with someone too. The place is nice and relaxing right on the water. It has perfect access to the whole island. I will definitely stay here again next time I go to Skye. Love love love

Tips:

The supermarket is fully stocked just 1 block away. The kitchen is amazing if you have any desire to cook anything. The isle is of course spectacular.

This was a friendly, affordable, and convenient hostel, with great facilities, located close to everything on the isle of Skye. It had clean bathrooms, a comfortable room, and quiet hours, which we were very grateful for. It also had by far the nicest kitchen facilities of any hostel we stayed at on our trip. The points off for location are because we found it very difficult to find when we drove in after dark; our GPS didn't have it listed, the sign to the side street where the hostel is located is difficult to see from the road, and we spent at least forty-five minutes driving around before we were finally able to find it using a weak signal on a phone with google maps. That being said, if you make sure you understand its exact location before getting to the Isle of Skye, you should have a great and hassle-free stay.

Tips:

The co-op grocery store down the block is open 24, and has a great variety of food for a quick breakfast or picnic lunch; we arrived at 7:30 am and the bakery items were still warm! We also stumbled across Cafe Sia, a little cafe that ended up having some of the best food on our entire trip. They have a lot of organic and local products, plenty of vegetarian options (including vegetarian haggis!), and a nice selection of local whiskeys. While we left too early to try their breakfast, they also had a full vegetarian Scottish breakfast available, which would be welcome for any vegetarian travelers like ourselves looking to have as authentic a Scottish culinary experience as possible.

“There are no bolts in Skye” I came to Skye for outdoor climbing and that was the sentence that defined not only my climbing experience but the whole stay in the island. Skye is a return to a natural experience, without artifices. It’s about find a pure experience, where our relations with nature and people are bound by a stopped clock. Skye Basecamp was a perfect refuge for this great adventure. The hostel is very comfortable, clean and organized. The staff is very friendly and helpful and Mike - the owner and local guide, is one of these characters larger than life and a piece of recent history of the island. I recommend a trip to Skye (climbing, hiking, drinking whisky, finding yourself, losing yourself, do you really need a reason?????). And, for that trip, Skye Basecamp is the place to stay, have a wonderful time and make friends for life.

Tips:

Everything in Skye seems to be worth seeing or worth doing. The most useful tip I can provide is to keep an open mind with the program as the weather is quite unstable. Better to keep your options open and adjust your plans on a daily basis. Sometimes the weather is terrible in one spot and quite sunny on another.
