Fantastic hostel, very clean and staff super friendly and helpful with alot of knowledge about the island and suggestions to go. Love the quotes around the place and wide selection of games to play in evenings.

We felt very comfortable in the relaxed atmosphere. The friendly staff, a nice, warm and clean room, inviting kitchen and dining areas, great showers and bathroom, and sitting in the SkyDome is unique. We really enjoyed our stay, it was really special. Also liked the nearby pub. Good decision to choose this hostel.

I'm not sure I knew what to expect on arrival, but what I found was an accommodation that is run with one hell of a lot of heart by its family owners, staff. Under the veneer of this light-hearted, "fun" gem of a place is one hell of a lot of professionalism. For myself, I appreciated the quiet it provided and the separation between private and public. (Also, thanks Tim for the extra touches, courtesies) Brilliant job.

Tips:

It's worth the effort to find it, visit it. Don't walk, run. --Kevin from Canada

The Skyewalker Hostel & it’s helpful dedicated staff made my 1st ever hostel experience a great one. The facility is spacious, comfortable, & welcoming. The shared amenities (kitchen & bathrooms/showers) are immaculately clean & the staff is sociable & helpful. I would love to return & will recommend Skyewalker to anyone looking for lodging when visiting Skye.

Tips:

Skyewalker is a bus ride from Portree so just be sure to get familiar with the bus schedule if you don’t have your own car. The area around the hostel is great to explore if you feel like staying put. The staff is full of recommendations on local dining spots & sites to see.

Family run business that totally understand what travellers need. Hostels are not our normal go to for accommodation, but your place did not disappoint. We loved everything about it, the little touches made it so cosy and comfortable we couldn’t fault it.

Tips:

If you want to stay in hostel on Skye this has to be the place. You can get there by bus a real plus on Skye! The staff are really welcoming and friendly. They have thought of everything and all the little touches just make it even more special 😍. The Skydome is a really special touch , not to be missed and can only imagine how great it would be on a night with no clouds. If you choose to stay in another hostel on the Island you would be doing yourself a disservice!

Fantastic welcome, all the staff are really helpful and friendly. Had lots of good chats. Stayed in one of the Jedi huts, all I can say is wow, especially impressed there was a guitar, and it was tuned. Everywhere was spotless, massive kitchen fully equipped, free tea, coffee, sugar etc, 2 large fridges, lots of drawers for your food, the highlight of the facilities was the impressed with the shower, fantastic power and hot,the best shower I have had in a long time!! A very modern hostel with everything you need, the music being played was spot on too. When can I come back? !!!

Tips:

Food is good at the Taigh Ailean Hotel up the road, I had Eriskay King Scallops followed by Loch Etive Trout with creamy leeks and new potatoes, delicious!! Again very friendly and welcoming staff, good selection of beer and whisky! Check out if any live music evebts on at Minginish Hall, like the bar only 10 mins up the road. The 608 bus from Portree was ideal for getting me there as doing my holiday on foot without a car , but just take your time!! Wish I could have stayed longer!!

Best budget hostel on Skye and the perfect location to access the Cuillin. Staff are extremely friendly and informative and our stay was comfortable, peaceful and very enjoyable. I shall be back!

Tips:

Only 20mins drive from Glenbrittle and access to the Cuillin, less than half an hour to the Sligachan hotel. Nearby (3 miles) is the Talkisker Distillery (currently closed for tours but open for tastings) and the Old Inn- great for music. Closer still and a better choice of delicious food is the Taigh Ailean, a short five minute walk away with local ales and a good choice of whisky with very friendly service. Talisker Bay is beautiful- though difficult to park - but it’s only a couple hours walk away. I certainly recommend the Raasay distillery (and a lovely boat trip), Elgol and the Spar Cave, The Fairy Glen (getting a bit too popular these days) and the North of the Island. The Cuillin is the top pick for me. Stunning scrambling/climbing and unsurpassed views.

Absolutely wonderful! Love this place. Brian, Lisa, Georgia and their staff showed us the usual warm and friendly hospitality. It's just like visiting family. The place is spotless and so tastefully decorated with loads of amusing and interesting things covering the walls.

Tips:

Taigh Ailean the local pub for meal or drink or takeaway, but book ahead in plenty of time for a meal as it's very popular. The Cuillin! Kilt Rock and then The Quirang, The Old Man of Storr, Coral Beach, Fairy Pools if you want to join the crowds of tourists (we never did) but plenty of other nice waterfalls, especially just up from Glenbrittle Youth Hostel. Brian ad Lisa will recommend loads of other stuff.

Nous avons loué les petites cabanes extérieures, très confortables, très propres et très originales. Les communs sont bien équipés, spacieux et bien conçus. C’est la meilleure auberge de jeunesse dans laquelle nous sommes allés. Le personnel est très agréable, nous conseille sur ce que l’on peut visiter sur l’île et nous indique de bons restaurants.
