About the Hostel
Skye Backpackers sits in the picturesque fishing village of Kyleakin, skirted by mountains and sea. It’s a small, cosy and friendly hostel with loads of character and great staff who are committed to ensuring you make the most of your time on the island.
Our accommodation is comprised of 2 Double Rooms, 1 Twin Room, 1 Triple Room & 5 Dorm rooms that vary in size between 4-8 beds per room. We also have 2 caravans in our garden which can accommodate up to 20 people.
All of our beds come complete with full bed linen and 2 pillows so there is no need to bring your sleeping bag.
We have a great fully equipped self catering kitchen, a sunny dining area and the famous Groove Lounge with a real coal fire, loads of books and games and spectacular seaside views.
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.
There’s plenty to see and do around the Isle of Skye so come and ask us for ideas – we’re a friendly bunch!
We will give you all of our ‘Top Tips’ on our fantastic island and will even give you a FREE MAP.
There are endless Cycling, Walking & Kayaking Routes literally on our doorstep. If you have your own bike or kayak with you it can be stored in our shed and we have bike wash facilities in our garden.
If the weather catches you out, you can hire a pair of wellies and buy waterproof ponchos from reception.
