Portree Independent Hostel

4.7 (1602 reviews)

Tel: 01478 613737
Portree Independent Hostel is ideally located in the centre of Portree, the picturesque capital of the Isle of Skye. Portree is Clan Macdonald territory. The hostel, once the main post office for the island, has been converted into a hostel with bags of character whilst being well provided with excellent facilities. The spacious kitchen and dining room, housed in the original sorting room, is the perfect place to meet other backpackers whilst enjoying the fabulous view across Portree Bay to the Cuillins from the window. The hostel is situated right in the centre of the island's largest town, Portree, just a hundred metres from the bus station in the village square. The hostel makes an ideal base for touring Skye, with fantastic hill walks, boat trips from the beautiful nearby harbour, wildlife, mountaineering, ancient castles and turbulent history all within reach.

Overall, it's a good hostel. Located in the centre of Portree is very close to the beach and facilities stop. The hostel has an amazing kitchen. However, the room where I was staying which was the female dorm (originally booked the mixed dorm, but moved because the staff asked me if I wanted to be moved with some girls just met at no extra price), was small. The door of the room was never locked and there wasn't a locker to keep my belonging. I was provided with a small locker for my laptop.

Tips:

Cafe arriba, catch the sunsire at the beach/harbour

Staff need to be far more welcoming to guests arriving. Check in feels like a business meeting with the emphasis only on payment, cash only, rules and checkout time.

Tips:

Avoid the Indian restaurant in Portree. The food isn't authentic Indian. Skye Minibus Tours was excellent and would recommend.

Everything was wonderful, the staff was very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Everything was clean and the beds were comfortable. The toilet on the second floor didn't work properly tho. We 100% recommend this hostel, we had a great time!

Tips:

We recommend two Cafés: Café Arriba and the Granary. Restaurants/Take aways: Chippy and Fat Panda. You should go and see the Lump. You can also catch a local bus and drive up to the Old Man of Storr or do a Isle of Skye tour (you can get tickets in the iCenter).

There is a clear mold problem in the bathrooms, which leads to the low cleanliness score I gave. Moreover, the 4-person I was in was a bit too small, without sufficient space to place and open our bags.

Tips:

I would recommend the pub called The Merchant in Portree, which in my opinion is the best one, as it is less touristy.

The heat was off while it was 9 degrees outside so the rooms were quit cold. This was extra rough because the backpacking clientele is quite stinky and the windows couldn’t be opened. The drying room was very damp and my belongings did not dry (also because the heat was off).

Tips:

The hostel doesn’t put on any events or activities but individuals find friends. Friendly people who like too hang out in the shared spaces.

All in all it is a good hostel, with small rooms and practical security, where you feel homely and safe. My issues where however that the showers looked pretty unsanitary, the beds had weird metal on the top side which you really had to get used to, and the heater only worked sometimes, which made the room pretty cold in the evenings.

Tips:

Do a boat trip on a speedboat from Carbost to Neist Point (I went with SeaMarine and it was awesome, and the highlight of my trip). For souvenirs, dont miss the Isle of Skye Soap Company in the centre of Portree.

Neat old building that’s a fun mishmash of classic old fixtures and colorful modern updates. Facility itself was clean but some of the guests were terrible with leaving wet messes in the bathroom. Rooms 1 and 2 are right under the stairwell and common kitchen, so don’t plan on sleeping late. Just the nature of the building. Location is a short block from Somerled square, the transport center, and in the middle of all the shops and restaurants. Front desk staff was pleasant and kind to work with.

Tips:

Many smaller businesses in town rely on WiFi to run their card readers so even though they advertise that they accept cards or contactless, you will likely find yourself in need of cash because the machines are “out of order.” We noticed signs at several businesses in town, and wondered if there was some sort of local outage, but then we were planning to leave a restaurant because we were short on cash and having trouble with the atm, but they were magically able to make the card reader work if they took it close to the front door.

I was a bit disappointed I wasn´t able to get a bed in the hostel but these things just happen to walk-ins at such popular place as Isle of Skye, so I camped outside. The staff was absolutely lovely and very helpful at all times. I also talked to the the owner of the hostel the next day, also very kind and friendly. Finally, I highly appreciate the drying room, it´s very sensible to have one when most of the guests are hiking and the weather is often not perfect, helped me to start the next day in dry and warm shoes (that does make a difference for the whole next day).

Both Quirang and Rubha Hunish are great places worth visiting.

The location was good right next to the square/bus station. The only thing that was a bit annoying was I didn’t see anywhere on the website ahead of time that showers/bathrooms are closed all day (10am-3pm) so when I came back soaked and freezing from a hike around 12:30pm I wasn’t allowed to take a warm shower for hours. The staff woman who informed me of this was not very nice about it.

The hostel is very well located. The 4 bedsrooms are quite small and there are no locker or places to put our personnal belongings so it was quickly a big mess in the room. The kitchen is big and there are everything you need but it seems like a lot of people we've met just didn't care about cleanig after themselves. That's a shame. Otherwise, the living room is nice to relax.

Very reasonably priced, good facilities, especially the kitchen, perfect location but reception could be more helpful in pointing out where the amenities are e.g. the kitchen, showers, toilets etc.

Tips:

Getting a table at a pub or restaurant is nigh impossible in Portree after 7 pm, so your best bet would either be the Chippy, or cooking yourself. Portree Independent Hostel has one of the best kitchens I've seen, so cooking is actually a pretty good option.

More than satisfactory. Large dining room, quiet after 10pm, good showers, good kitchen, good security, and excellent launderette. However, there was no heating in the room, and the taps were either hot or cold - no mixer tap.

Tips:

There's a nearby co-op where you can buy your groceries and food. Take the bus to Storr and the Quiraing and walk the trails, but be reasonably fit and take along a hiking pole. Unfortunately the Quiraing doesn't have a bus stop nearby, so it's a 3km walk in from the Brogaig bus stop.

I had a very comfortable stay at Portree Independent Hostel. The kitchen was very spacious, the rooms were clean, and I liked that I was able to sleep in a single bed and not a bunk bed (depends on availability). The internet was also fast compared to other hostels I stayed at in Portree. It would be nice if there were more hooks to hang clothes on inside the rooms though. Excellent hostel!

Tips:

I highly recommend the Grand Tour of Skye offered by Skye Scenic Tours. Donald was a great guide, and this tour was designed for those wanting to spend more time exploring a fewer number of locations rather than more locations with mostly photo opportunities.

The hostel has all the basic facilities one needs. Very vibrant and sparkling clean. The location is literally right in front of the main square so very convenient if you're gonna rely on public transport. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and gave useful suggestions for my trip. Will definitely stay here again if/when I come back to Portree.

Tips:

Good place to base yourself at if you don't have a car. Portree is tiny but still has a lot to offer. Do check out the Scorrybreac trail; a small and charming walk right inside Portree.

Staff was very kind and the place well organized. Check in and check out were easy. The mattress was quite comfy. My only suggestions would be to warn that the shower is on a timer and quite warm. And perhaps a railing down the grade to the laundry.

Tips:

The Isles Inn has wonderful food, drink and staff. Super cozy. Sky Batiks is a fun place to shop and they give you coffee while you explore. The prices were reasonable too for the craftsmanship. The views from the windows at Caffe Arriba were beautiful. The food and tea were good, too. But I loved just sitting there and looking out onto the harbor with my tea, as I was trying to wake up. There is a local bus, the 57A, that will take you around that particular section of Skye. You can hop off here and there or just do the circuit. I was having some problems with my leg and didn’t think I could walk. So I just sat and enjoyed the two-hour drive. Less than £8. Cheaper and quieter than a bus tour.

Perfect Staff, perfect Rooms (most of it). Problems: - No "real drying room" - everything is still wet in the morning without heater or something. - To less Bathrooms, but still fine.

Tips:

The Bar direct in front - nice one!

Although the staff was extremely nice and the location was good, I didn't like that the bathroom was outside of the room and down the hall. It was also shared amongst all the dorms, which I found inconvenient. The place was clean and ideally located though. It would be a good place for a night or 2.

Tips:

Just a personal tip, I would not stay in Portree. I traveled there expecting a nice little town, but it ended up being so incredibly crowded and touristy. There were limited number of restaurants and SO MANY tour buses. Stay in Broadford or somewhere where tour buses don't stay overnight. Also, the bus system doesn't run on Sundays so don't stay on Isle of Skye on that day unless you rented a car :)

Auberge vraiment sympa et bien placée. La grande pièce de vie avec vue sur mer permet de rencontrer et partager avec les autres. Portes des chambres avec code pour la sécurité. Pas de casier dans les chambres par contre.

Tips:

Portree permet de se restaurer facilement. Certains bar/restau ferment assez tard. De nombreuses rando sont vraiment belles sur Skye. Attention le bus ne va pas partout, notamment dans le secteur de The Cuillins Hills et Fairy Pools. Et très peu de bus le dimanche.

It’s located pretty much in the middle of the island, which is good when you’re on a tight schedule. It’s uncomfortably colorful but one gets used to it/ goes blind after some time. The kitchen is really large, well-equipped and clean.

This hostel was incredibly friendly! I made friends with new people every night and always had someone to chat to from all over the world. The location was extremely convenient for public transportation around the island. The kitchens also had a nice view while eating meals.

Tips:

Would highly recommend the SkyeBus one-day tour, which takes you all over the island. Since so many sights are difficult to see on your own, a tour is a must-do!

Tips:

Very recommendable! Easy to stock up on food nearby at the supermarket and the whole foods store. The Isle's Inn has delicious vegetarian options. The circuit path gives a nice walk along the coast with splendid views. Good starting point for any tour around the island.

The hostel is really spacious, especially it's kitchen. It had all the necessary equipment needed for cooking, including ovens, microwaves, many sinks, lots of tableware and so on. Also, it had plenty of tables, so everyone could find a seat for themselves. The rooms were clean, beddings seemed to be new and I loved that in the dorm room (at least where I stayed) we had enough power sockets for everyone. What is more, the hostel is located in the heart of Portree so all of the main Portree attractions are easily reached on foot. (And also there is a supermarket that works from 7 a.m. till 11 p.m. nearby, so you never have to worry about buying food in advance:))

Tips:

I would definitely suggest taking a short walk in Portree even if you are planning to visit Skye's main attractions. Climbing to "The Lump", visiting a few small shops or just watching the yachts sway in the evening can be really lovely.

Very nice place! It is clean and there is a big kitchen with all you may need to cook. It is near of the bus station and the grocery (not even 5 minutes walk).

Tips:

If you want to see Isle of Skye with no car, I strongly advice to buy a tour (we went on a tour with Real Scottish journey and it was really nice) because there is not a lot of bus on the Isle of Skye. It is very complicated to go to Fairy Pool or Neist Point without a car or a tour. In Portree, I recommend the Scoorybreak hiking. It is a really nice little hike with a beautiful view.

Great facilities in the kitchen, bathrooms nice and clean, helpful and friendly staff, nice atmosphere. The room was a bit small but tidy and clean. Would recommend!

Tips:

Portree is an ideal location to explore the island because you can be anywhere in few time. In the town are many restaurants, but it was not easy to get a table in the evening because of so many tourists which were already waiting in queues at the restaurants. Also tourist prices everywhere in the town. We were eating at the Caledonian Cafe and can recommend it, it was delicious. I tried the haggis (first time for me) and loved it, also fish and chips was great.

Everything here was clean and tidy, with very friendly people. Portree as a town is great, with very easy access to bus lines, atms, a small grocery around the block from the hostel to make the self cater kitchen invaluable. Our only concern was how hard the old mattresses can be after a long day, and the incredibly flat single pillow provided. Old bunk beds certainly wouldn’t be enough to keep me from coming back, though- we could have happily stayed another week exploring Skye from this location!

Tips:

We had great luck with the weather, so ended up having picnic style meals at the harbor several times. The hostel makes it easy to store and organize your food in their kitchen. Keep an eye on the meal deal from the co-op grocery cooler, which definitely saves money on simple lunches. If you want to pick up soup and sandwiches, including seafood specialties, with a coffee we enjoyed Relish Skye, a takeaway cafe. Arriba just across the street was jam packed at lunch time for sit down service, but had good food. Both GoSkye’s day tour of Skye and Skye Scenic Tours’ Saturday trip to Harris & Lewis were wonderful, covering the major sites with the local guide handling the single track roads and, in the case of Harris, the process of taking the ferry to and from. Highly recommend the views from hiking Old Man of Stor as well as the Fairy Pools trail, and from the hostel itself there’s a trail around the bay and up in to the cliffs where Prince Charlie was hidden. Up by the overlook for Kilt Rock there’s also a small museum for paleontology on Skye, with artifacts discovered along the Skye coast that’s well worth stopping in to for the couple £.

J'ai vraiment aimé mon séjour dans cette auberge, très colorée et chaleureuse avec un personnel très gentil. Il y a un très grand espace cuisine très convivial, un espace lingeries ou on peut étendre son linge, beaucoup de toilettes et les chambres sont assez sécurisées avec un code à chaque porte. Les autres personnes qui étaient aussi à l'auberge étaient toutes très gentilles, il y avait vraiment une très bonne ambiance. Une des meilleures auberges où je suis allée !

Tips:

L'auberge est située vraiment à côté de la station de bus ce qui est très pratique ! Puis avec sa couleur jaune elle est bien visible ! Sinon il y a beaucoup de très bons restaurants, un très jolie parc en haut de la ville et de très beaux paysages à voir !

Some of the policies weren't as clear upon booking, such as the fee or deposit required to come and go as you please after 10pm, and the expectations for how you keep your belongings. I hung my towel up to dry in the bathroom like the rest of those I shared the room with, but my towel and washcloth (the only ones I had with me at all) were thrown away without my knowledge while I was in the hostel.

Tips:

Very clean, safe, reputable. A tight run ship. Good central location in relation to transport off Skye, tour pick-up points, restaraunts, and pubs. If you are backpacking in Skye and you cannot rent a car, you have to take a day tour (Skyebus was the best value and tour I found), and this location in Portree was immensely helpful.

Portree is well located, if you have a car of course but you can also travel by buses to see the Old man of Storr, Uig, Staffin and more! We also visited Portree at dusk and it was really great, especially the little path next to the Church which leads to an amazing view :)

I found everything extremely good and a really efficient staff. Despite of this, there is just one thing that I want to remark: I didn't find in anyway correct that my basket with my own food in the fridge was moved and SOME of my food ( just SOME, not all) has been thrown away (or eaten?) by someone else just because forgot to put the date when arrived just 2 days before!I'm sorry, I didn't find that a good thing to do, although I can understand that people very often forget and leave food in the fridge for ages. If not expired food and belonging to someone still there, in my opinion there's no sense to do that.

Pros: -Location is brilliantly central. Everything important is barely a five minute walk away. -Friendly, knowledgeable staff -Great atmosphere in kitchen, dining space and lounge -Lamps by upper bunks -Clean Cons: -Outlets clustered and not by every bed -Not a lot of toilets/showers in the whole hostel, but manageable regardless -No lockers -Showers operate by time limit and pressure isn't great, but temperature is good!

Tips:

1. Everything for food (supper-wise) is expensive. Go to Coop, it's not even five minutes away. 2. Most of the souvenir shops / boutiques close at five. If shopping is what you want to do, plan accordingly. 3. If you're not driving, highly recommend a tour. Sight seeing spots can be two hours away on bus. 4. The tap water is drinkable. 5. Layer up and bring something waterproof! When I went, the winds were too strong for an umbrella and rain ponchos were getting flipped up. A water proof jacket with merino wool layers underneath saved me. Wish I had waterproof pants. 6. Talisker whiskey is delicious, though if you're a first time whiskey drinker, drink with caution; it's a bit aggressive.

Posizione perfetta per chi si sposta coi mezzi pubblici (giusto di fronte all'unica stazione degli autobus che serve tutta l'isola). Letti comodi e locali abbastanza puliti. Cucina enorme, con almeno 4 cucine. Qualche pecca relativa alla muffa sul soffitto. A gestire l'ostello ho visto un signore molto preparato e una ragazza gentile, anche se probabilmente non troppo pratica della zona quindi non utilissima.

The one night we decided to cook it was quite hard as one of the two ovens was out of order. Only a minor inconvenience though as we were able to use the microwave instead.

I liked the atmosphere of a hostel and its perfect location in the middle of the town. It was a spot from which it was easy to get to some of the great hikes around the area. The minus is that there were not enough sockets in the room (and they weren't next to individual beds) and it was cold in our room.

My friend and I had an excellent stay at the Portree Independent Hostel. Our room was comfortable, the wide open kitchen was excellent, and the staff was mostly friendly. John in particular was very helpful and kind, piping up to help us out from the moment we walked in through the front door. The bathrooms and kitchen were clean and the bedrooms were comfortable and not overly crowded. LOVED the bright colors everywhere - really lifted our spirits. Was frustrated by half the burners being out of order on the stoves, and there was a terrible body odor stink in the lobby much of the time, but I'm hoping the stench was due to the men who were often sitting out there rather than persistent to the lobby itself.

Visit Well Plaid for a lovely Sunday roast - their nut roast is delicious.

Very human-oriented and flexible, even though there are rules like in every hostel. It was very nice that the night time was respected by guests.

Tips:

Bring rubber shoes for rain.

Great staffs! We could not get there before they off, but they left doors unlocked for us and the notes at reception! It was so warm when we were all tired!

Bed linen looked liked as being used. With the bad smell of being used. There are lot of unpleasant smells of 12 men in the room and having a fresh bed sheets is an essential thing which doesn't cost an arm and a leg to the house.

Tips:

Take your sleeping bag with you and you'll be better.

I love the location of the hostel, the friendly staff and the brightly painted walls. I wish you had more plug ins in the dorm rooms though.

Tips:

I would definitely try to do one of the tours (I used Scenic Skye tours). This way you can check out the highlights, get some information on Skye and it's history and decide what you want to go back to spend more time at. The Isles Inn is great for live music in the evenings and even have a starter size portion of haggis to try. The bakery on the corner is delicious and cheap.

The staff do an excellent job with a lot of variables (so many people coming and going, a big kitchen, lots of young adults). I applaud them!

Tips:

Go hiking. Anywhere.
