I stayed here while traveling with a friend on a hiking/sightseeing trip. I think it was the nicest hostel we stayed at on our weeklong trip. The hostel is right in the middle of Portree and very easy to find. No long haul from the bus stop this time! The staff was very helpful--even gave us some hiking recommendations. The rooms were big, airy, and brightly-colored. There were enough bathrooms that I never encountered a line. Beware of the showers--if it is possible, the water at this hostel was almost too hot, and there wasn't anyway to adjust the temperature.
The only thing that we would have changed would be to have locks on the room door. Our room had no lock, and the door to the hostel was unlocked most of the day. We were a little worried about leaving our laptops in our luggage while we went exploring.
