Good 7.8 From 34 reviews

Very good 8.0
Good hostel. I would have preferred a private room, but I did book late and it was probably peak tourist season. So that's my own fault.

Good 6.0
Disappointing but liked cooking /dining space
Disappointing stay. Descriptions and photos they use in publicity do not match reality. Expected double bed, got two stacked single bunk beds. We did like, that, as a hostel the cooking and dining area was pleasant and well-equipped. Parking was in public space doen a steep hill or public stairs from the hotel. No on-premises or immediately nearby parking.

Good 6.0
Mold all over the ceiling of the bathroom, pillow was thin and flimsy. Room smelled

Exceptional 10.0
Cheerful hostel right in town
Really enjoyed this hostel. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Very cheerful decoration with bright colors everywhere. Overall, quite clean. Lockers are a bit small (i.e. can't fit a whole bag in there) but really only downside. The kitchen area is huge so makes for easy cooking even during peak eating times. The location really can't be beat...right downtown in Portree. Easy access to buses, pubs, shopping etc. Really enjoyed staying at this hostel and would definitely stay here again.
