The Skywalker Hostel is run by the nicest couple you'll ever meet! So friendly and helpful, especially when you want to see the island. They'll make sure you have maps, tips, everything you need to navigate Skye. My friends and I drove up, first timers to Skye. Portnalong is a ways out in the middle of nowhere, however the area is breathtakingly beautiful! The hostel itself is great... for a hostel. It was very clean, the fellow lodgers were nice, but the biggest problem: MOLD. Every room we went in, it REEKED of mold. There's really not much to do about that. I would absolutely recommend this place, but just beware if you have mold allergies to come prepared with medications!
