Reviewed 27 June 2011

We stayed in various youth hostels (see my other reviews) on the Isle of Skye and we liked Glenbrittle most. It is in the middle of nature, far away from everything, and therefore a fantastic starting point for hikes.

Staff are friendly and helpful, the place is clean and well-equipped with a kitchen, washing and drying facilities. The hostel is very clean.

There are various dorms with approximately 8 or 10 beds (men & women separate) in them. Our dorms had a very high ceiling and therefore the air in them was much better then usually in dorms - almost no smells at all, I would say.

If you go to Glenbritte YH, try "The Old Inn" in Carbost which we can highly recommend (see my review).

This hostel is fine if you're a hiker or walker and you're used to basic youth hostel facilities.
It's quite an old building and the dorms are quite big, and there are no small rooms for couples.
It has a drying room and a laundry and the kitchen has everything you need for self catering. They don't sell much food at the reception, but down the road at the campsite shop they have a bigger selection.
The location is brilliant for walking in the Cuillin mountains, but you really need a car to get to it, as the buses only go as far as Carbost.
