About Skyewalker Hostel

ISLE OF SKYE TOP RATED HOSTEL – 2007, 2008 & 2009

A warm welcome and traditional Scottish hospitality awaits you all at the award winning, family run, Skyewalker Hostel.

Please read all the information below to make sure Skyewalker Hostel is the right place for you:

Skyewalker Hostel is situated on the stunning Minginish peninsula giving easy access to the Cuillin mountain range. It’s location on the west coast makes for spectacular sunsets and gives you an ideal base for exploring the beautiful Isle of Skye.

The rural location (if you do not have a car please read the public transport section below) means you are surrounded by unspoiled natural beauty. There is a great beach within walking distance with regular sightings of whales, dolphins and basking sharks as well as Skye’s famous eagles!

The hostel is only a five minute walk from the local hotel which serves meals and has a cosy bar, very popular both with locals and visitors.

The world famous Talisker distillery is less than 3 miles from the hostel and well worth a visit. Portree, the capital of the Island is only 25 minutes away by car or local bus.

We have 40 bunk beds in rooms ranging from 2 bedded private rooms to a 10 bed dorm and offer a very high standard of comfort and cleanliness.

The Hostel has a well equipped self catering kitchen, free wifi connection and a large garden area for recreation and barbecues. There is also a cool ‘chill out’ glass dome for guests to relax in.

Skyewalker Hostel hosts regular Scottish folk music sessions and has instruments available for guests to use.

It is also possible to book the whole place for special occasions such as birthdays, Munro completion parties, family get-togethers etc.

Families are very welcome however, we would ask that all guests with children under the age of 12 book exclusive use of rooms (i.e. no children under 12 in shared dorms).
Please be aware that Skye has a limited bus service. The hostel has 4 buses a day Monday – Friday, only 1 bus on a Saturday and NO buses on a Sunday so PLEASE CHECK YOUR JOURNEY PLANS AND CONNECTIONS BEFORE BOOKING!
Check in strictly between 15:00 and 22:00 (outwith these times by prior arrangement only and at our discretion). Check out is at 11:00.
THE HOSTEL IS CLOSED BETWEEN 11:00 and 15:00 for cleaning.
If you inform us of your intention to cancel no later than 11:00am on the day prior to your arrival date, no fee will be charged. However, if you fail to give us due notice, you will be charged!
We are sorry there are no exceptions to this!

For guests using satelite navigation systems, often when satnav is programmed for the most direct route to Skye, it may take you via the ferry at Mallaig. If this is not your intention, you should navigate to the hostel via Kyle of Lochalsh.

Skyewalker Hostel…probably the best Hostel in the world…definately the best on Skye!
