Skye Backpackers

We stayed in the hostel that mostly housed people who worked for the hostel or tour company because the other one was full. We were on a three day trip by MacBackpackers and stayed two nights there. It was clean, quiet, and well located.

About Skye Backpackers

Skye Backpackers sits in the picturesque fishing village of Kyleakin, skirted by mountains and sea. It's a small, cosy hostel with an open fire in the lounge and a lovely backyard garden.

Come and stay in this wee village; the gateway to the Isle of Skye. With its lively pub atmosphere and quiet, comfortable accommodation, Kyleakin is the perfect place to come to escape the stresses of city life.

The Isle of Skye is situated on the West coast of mainland Scotland, and is the largest and best known of the Inner Hebrides. One of Europe's most dramatic and haunting lands, words can do little justice to describe Skye's awesome beauty. The majestic Cuillin Mountains dominate a rugged landscape that is peppered with lochs and tiny fishing villages.

Take some time to explore the island's haunted castle ruins; feel the mysterious presence of the legendary faeries in tranquil glens, waterfalls and mountain pools; visit whiskey distilleries and sample local beers and ales; take a relaxing stroll through the countryside or boldly ascend a mighty mountain.

We can offer you suggestions of what to see and do each day, and we hope that you will leave the Isle of Skye feeling refreshed, exhilarated and peaceful!

The hostel reception is open from 7am - 12 noon and then from 5pm - 10pm. If you arrive in the afternoon feel free to leave your bags and use the facilities, and then check-in between 5pm-10pm.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed in the hostel that mostly housed people who worked for the hostel or tour company because the other one was full. We were on a three day trip by MacBackpackers and stayed two nights there. It was clean, quiet, and well located. We'd stumble out of the door in the morning and see the beautiful Castle Maol on the hill to the right of us. It was beautiful.

If you are backpacking Skye, stay here. The people are nice and it's a great place.
