Welcome to our hostel

With beautiful coastal and mountain views, Broadford Youth Hostel makes a good base for exploring the Isle of Skye.

Perfect for groups, families and individual travellers, the hostel offers guests a wide range of room types, from private rooms to spacious shared accommodation. None of the rooms are en-suite but ample shower and washroom facilities are available.

Guests can opt for continental breakfast served in the dining room or prepare their own meals in the well-equipped self-catering kitchen. Relax in the hostel’s comfortable lounge with a local craft beer or glass of wine and enjoy beautiful views over the bay extending to the mountains of the Applecross peninsula on the mainland.

Other facilities include free WiFi, USB charging points in all bedrooms, a laundry and drying room and secure bike storage. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception.

The hostel is in a central location with local shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. Close to the main road on Skye, it’s well-served by public transport in all directions. Otters and seals are often to be seen in the bay and kayaks can be launched from the pier close by. A short walk to Irishman’s Point offers superb views of Raasay and Scalpay.

There is a public car park in front of the hostel with spaces for about 23 cars.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

Hostel was just ok compared to others we have stayed - very tiny ‘private’ room - thin walls and noisy

Le dortoir pour 6 est très petit pas de casier pour ranger ses affaires

Auberge très propre et bien située, mais l'insonorisation est inexistante donc prévoyez des bouchons d'oreille !

The bedroom was not very clean, there were cobwebs with dead insects in and the window cills and floor were dusty. The bed linen though was clean. The access from the car park was extremely difficult for my wife who has trouble with walking. The broken and missing handrails on the steps up from the car park didn't help. Surely there is a way to be more accommodating for disabled persons.
