Nice small hostel with stunning views overlooking the water and mountains.

Large well appointed self catering kitchen.

We stayed three nights in a private room at the back of the hostel. It had a TV in it! Towels also supplied for free as the room was classed as deluxe. We were in room 14 and some people would find small considering the price you pay in comparison to other cheaper hostels.

Someone's razor was left in the shower and the bin in the bathroom had someone's floss in it.

We were greatful for the TV in the end as the common rooms get full, especially when there are big groups in. So we ate in our room instead watching the tv.

Breakfast is £5.50 for continental. They ran out of bread and croissants on our last day which left me with cheese cereal and yoghurt, being a veggie. There was always something that had run out the previous two days as well. We could have asked the staff but they were busy with other guests.

Once again place gets very busy at breakfast, you may struggle to find a seat.

My advice, buy some porridge in pots that you can just add hot water to or some bread and cheese, save your money.

Good location in the centre of Portree.

We had booked Portree Youth Hostel in April. It was a great experience. First of all, the location of the hostel is incredible. The views from the reception are beautiful.

They have a small free parking space in front of the reception. You can get free parking space which is bigger just opposite the hostel.

The lady at the reception was welcoming and friendly. They have a lounge area, kitchen and laundry near the reception.

The room we took was ensuite private room. It was clean and well maintained. The toilets were clean and there was hot water in the shower.

Overall a fantastic experience to stay in Portree and chill around with the fellow visitors.

Do visit !!!
Cheers!!!

This place is located in the centre of Portree town and has multiple options from dorm style to pvt room for 2 or 4. Since we were a group of four people, we chose private room with washroom. The room and washroom were neat and clean. The room had bunk beds which were pretty comfortable. The view is awesome as this property is located in front of Loch Portree.
No issues with car parking as there is ample car parking space behind the hostel. The kitchen was neat and Co-op grocery mart is just 200 mtr from the locations.

Stayed here for Christmas in a double room - was very comfortable and clean. View was breathtaking.everything was near. The only negative thing is that on Christmas day all the restaurants close expect and Indian up the street. On the whole it was a very nice experience and would probably go again.

We stayed for a couple of nights at the youth hostel. The hostel has good self catering facilities, comfortable communal seating and an ideal location, however compared to other SYHA's I've stayed at the cleanliness of the rooms were really poor. The areas under the bed, skirting etc needed a good clean and hoover. The room/bathroom had a mouldy/damp smell and shower area was mouldy and again cleanliness wasn't great in the communal toilets.

It's sad to see given how popular this hostel is and particularly as it's quite expensive for a youth hostel.
