Positive Reviews

Convenient accommodation.

Broadford Youth Hostel is ideal for backpackers or larger groups of friends on an outing to the Isle of Skye. Rooms are quite spacious and the convenient arrangement of single and bunk beds makes for easy sleeping with enough space to still move around in.

Friendly communal features.

The youth hostel offers shared features which is a great way to make new friends and mingle. The kitchen is clean and quite big with plenty of pots and cooking utensils to make meal preparation easy. A lounge and TV room is also comfy with plenty of sofas and great views over the bay.

Ideal location for exploring.

The location of the hostel is perfect for exploring the surrounding natural landscape. Hiking and cycling enthusiasts will love the convenient access to nature trails in the area. Arranging other activities such as bird and whale watching trips is also easy with staff able to arrange in advance.

Negative Reviews

Paid Wi-Fi service.

The Wi-Fi service which is available in all common areas as well as in rooms is not a free service and carries an hourly rate structure. The quality of the signal is also not the best.

Can be quite noisy.

As with many shared hostel-type accommodation places, this one can also be quite noisy at times, especially during busier periods. Private rooms don't offer much respite from noise as walls are quite thin.

Shared bathroom facilities.

Bathroom facilities are shared at the hostel and are somewhat disproportionate to the amount of beds on the property. This can lead to frustration as guests often have to wait in turn. Sharing showers and toilets is also not in everyone's comfort zone.
