We originally planned to stay for one night but ended up staying two nights because we loved the place so much. I love all the little touches of humor posted throughout and quiet music playing in the common spaces. The facilities we cozy and super clean. The beds were very comfortable and the staff could not be nicer. Thank you for the very pleasant stay!

Tips:

Highly recommend staying here. The staff are incredibly friendly and warm. The place is squeaky clean and has many nice subtle touches.

What an amazing place, just unbelievably good in every way. Staff are all so friendly and kind. The facilities are so good and so very clean. Love the quirky artwork, the background music is wonderful. If I was considering opening a Hostel, this is the template I would strive for, but I could never achieve what Brian, Lisa & Georgia & staff have done.....so I'm not going to bother trying to compete, I'll just try to keep coming back to the best place ever on Skye and Beyond !!

Tips:

Try not to fully book out the Hostel, whenever I'm trying to find a space !! Dougie with Rob & Margaret

I have not stayed in a hostel since my teen years and it was my husbands first time staying in one. Skyewalker hostel exceeded our expectations, I particularly liked how funny and friendly the staff are. We stayed in one of the jedi huts which was very cosy. The whole place is quirky and there is humorous stuff on the walls and the back of toilet doors to read. Every day there was cake to buy and the brownies were so good. If I ever stayed in another hostel it would be hard to beat this one. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Tips:

The old inn in carbost has live music Check map on the wall in reception to see places to visit. Do your food shop in Portree co op before arriving as there is only a small shop nearby. The hostel always had butter other guests had left free to use

We enjoyed staying at Skyewalker Hostel for 5 nights in early June. It was fantastic. The staff are all friendly and exceedingly helpful. Their advice on places to go, what time of day is best, or not, for a short walk, for a long walk, for beach, or scenery, short drive away, long drive but worth it, all was spot on. We were welcomed back at the end of each day with interested questions on how our day went, even though they must have heard the same from hundreds of guests before us. The staff are the best. The kitchen is very well-set up with plenty of hotplates, washing-up sinks, crockery, pots, etc. Everywhere is very clean. Tidying up after yourself in the kitchen and bathrooms is reinforced with humour, not nagging. There was plenty of room in the fridges and storage boxes in the kitchen to store cold food and dry stuff. The bunkroom we had was small but adequate - you don’t want to sit in your room anyway. There are plenty of places in the lounge, dining area and outside to sit and read, chat, relax, whatever. Great value for an enjoyable stay on Skye.

Tips:

You do need a car to get places on Skye. Portnalong is 11 minutes drive from Carbost, up a steep, steep, narrow, pot-holed road. One group did arrive by bike while we were there - they were on their way to the ferry to outer islands. But to enjoy a variety of walks on different parts of Skye you need a car to get there and then back to the hostel. I regret we didn’t have more time to spend in Broadford - our short time in Broadford left me wishing we had visited there earlier in our stay. Don’t post to instagram about the beautiful spots! It just means they get loved to death (like the Fairy Pools). Enjoy them, take photos and show your friends, but don’t tell the whole world! There are too many of us trying to visit already : (

My sister and I loved our time at Skyewalker hostel! The family who run it and staff there are so friendly and helpful, always making sure we were comfortable and gave plenty of great recommendations for things to do/ see. Very clean facilities. We stayed in the garden huts which were just gorgeous. Very comfortable and cosy - perfect for two people. They even had hot water bottles and a lollipop on each of our pillows on arrival! You can tell they really care about their customers down to the tiny details. It was a great location to base ourselves on to explore Skye. Added bonus that they have the awesome stargazing igloo out the back, perfect to hang out free of the cold and the midgies! Would definitely stay here again.

Tips:

Everywhere on Skye is quite remote so ideally you need a car to get around- would be very difficult without one! Also- the nearest pub/ restaurant is 5 min drive or about an hour walk away so best to bring food to cook in the kitchen, just something to be aware of.

We stayed for 2 nights at skywalker hostel. The hostel is very clean (kitchen, bathrooms spotless) and the rooms are spacious and nice. Very nice and fun decoration everywhere. It"s the best hostel I have stayed at! We really loved it :) It's 10 min from talisker whisky distillery, 30 min from Portree and 20 min from the fairy pools so well located on Skye!! I absoluteky recommend!!

Tips:

Think about bringing some food as it is quite isolated and not many food options close by! You can still go to Portree if needed, just for the convenience.

Our stay was once again excellent. However, on this occasion, we do just have one small criticism in that the drying room was not left on long enough for our boots to dry out properly after a very wet days walking.

One of the best hostels I have stayed in. A tip I would like to give is to offer guests a thinner blanket during summer. The current blankets are for winter I think and these are a little bit too warm.

Tips:

Make sure you checked the bus schedules carefully.

Fantastic hostel. Clean and comfortable double bunk room. Very helpful staff who gave us good tips about the area and good places to eat too. Great communal areas and lovely showers. Loved the pictures and posters! A shame we couldn’t have stayed longer- we’ll be back.

Tips:

The Taigh Aileen just down the road does great food and drink- book ahead to reserve a table although they offer takeaway if they can’t seat you.

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.

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.
