    Perfect location when arriving on the evening ferry. Lovely owners. We had the entire house for ourselves and really enjoyed cooking dinner and relaxing in the living room all while taking in the view. Comfortable bedding.

    Cadre exceptionnel avec vue sur la mer !!! Personnel d'accueil très professionnel et accueillant, empathie idéale... Locaux un peu atteints par l'humidité, mais c'est normal à 100 m de la mer. Un peu sonore, on entend beaucoup les bruits d'une pièce à l'autre. Mais pour une nuit ou deux, ce n'est pas grave... Manque 1 chose : des verres dans la cuisine pour boire une bière !

    Endroit très isolé lorsque l'on a pas de voiture, en revanche la vue et les alentours sont magnifiques. Chambre très propre et on s'y sentait bien.

    The room and kitchen were clean and well equiped. However, the ceilings were full of spider webs. Overall, the place was very comfortable !

    The staff and general atmosphere was good but there are many things to improve : - our window was broken, it could not close, so low security. - the hostel is hard to find and badly indicated. - the shower leaked a lot and the shower door doesn't really close. The good thing : a really nice view.

    The location of the Hostel and Isle of Skye une the globalité are very beautiful; however the hostel is very dirty, bed and sheets dirty and unconfortable. It could have been ok for one night if the price was low but as it is very complicated to find a room on the island they increase prices so a dirty bed for one night become as expensive as a clean bed for 2 or 3 nights in Glasgow or Edinburg. I would advise to avoid this hostel if you have the choice

    First things first, the access for the hostel isn't very visible. Secondly, nothing permited to know where was the office for the check in. The staff wasn't very welcoming. Also, only three people can eat at the same time (only 3 plates !!!!). Kitchen, bathroom and bedroom were cleaned but carpet was always wet. In few words, you could find hostel much better for the same price (or lower) !

    Nous avons été très déçu par cet auberge. Même si l'accueil de la propriétaire a été correcte., la chambre et les lieux communs ont été plus que décevant... La chambre était beaucoup trop petite pour 4 personnes. Nous ne pouvions même pas ouvrir une valise. Les équipements étaient plus que décevant, pas de porte manteau, ni d'étagères pour déposer nos vêtements dans la salle de douche et dans la chambre. Et les pièces de vie étaient très sales, murs sales, sols avec des moquettes mal posées...

    Pitoyable!!! Alors qu'il gelait dehors, notre hôte n'a pas anticipé notre arrivée en mettant le chauffage et l'eau chaude. La température intérieure ne dépassait pas les 10 degrés, la porte d'entrée et la fenêtre des toilettes ne fermant pacela n'a pas aidé à réchauffer l'atmosphère. la chambre ne dispose pas de draps, est sale et sent mauvais la cuisine impraticable par sa crasse et nous avons passé notre tour pour la douche!! Pas de logement dispo à proximité sinon nous serions partis. FUYEZ!
