Welcome to our hostel

Set in rugged scenery at the foot of the Cuillin Ridge, Glenbrittle Youth Hostel is just over a mile from the beach and close to the magical fairy pools and the famous Talisker Distillery. Eagles can often be spotted in the skies above.

This homely hostel has a long tradition as a base for walkers and climbers, offering guests a variety of rooms, all with USB charging points and individual bed lights. Many have mountain views and all are available to book as private rooms. Although none of the rooms are en-suite, there are ample shower and washroom facilities.

Opt for continental breakfast served in the dining room or take advantage of the modern, well-equipped self-catering kitchen. The hostel is licensed and guests can relax with a local craft beer or glass of wine in the comfortable mountain-facing lounge after a hard day on the hills.

Other facilities include a laundry, large drying room, public phone and secure bike storage for up to 10 bikes. Basic provisions, including frozen ready meals, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception. Due to the hostel’s remote location, there’s no WiFi and very limited mobile signal.

Limited off-road parking is available in front of the hostel.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

Notre chambre familiale n'avait pas de plafond : nous étions sous le toit, et nous avions accès au dessus du couloir. Perte de chaleur, poussière (au dessus du couloir) et manque d'insonorisation.

Top Lage mitten in der Natur, Trekkingrouten von der Tür weg, leider recht hellhörig, gute Küchenausstattung
