Liked: Our overall experience was good. The staff was nice and helpful, they helped us book our next accommodation by calling other backpackers. The place was really clean for a backpacker. The location is great.

Disliked: We booked a twin room, one of the bed was really uncomfortable but it's what you can expect from a backpacker.

Liked: The location was great, really close to the mainland and great views. Lots of parking which was great for our hire car. Staff were nice and helpful, and there was a whole wall in the kitchen dedicated to different sights in Skye, and another with details of the different transport links. Free breakfast was grand, pretty simple but cheap and the homemade scones were a definite hit. Lounge area was cosy and good for socialising. Overall a really nice hostel on an amazing island.

Disliked: The staff were all backpackers as well; some were very friendly and great at interacting with guests and others felt a bit more of an insular group, which may be a bit intimidating if the hostel is otherwise quiet. I checked in with a friend and we only got one room key between us, which was a bit of a pain if we were doing different things about the hostel, making meals, showering etc.

Liked: facilities to cook.

Disliked: 1. We booked 5 beds, 4 in a room and 1 in another room. They did not respect the room and split us, 3 in a room and 2 in another room. 2. Bathrooms were not clean.
