The Portree hostel is in the middle of the town, with excellent views over the loch from the lounge area (nice info and brochures). The narrow hostel has some dormitory rooms in a separate building which does not connect to the kitchen/dining room area, so you have to walk outside. Accommodation in Portree is in great demand, and the hostel private rooms are priced higher than other Scottish hostels. Some rooms get humid inside from steam escaping from the shower in the inner en-suite bathrooms.

The bathroom and room was musty and had a terrible smell that did not go away even though we kept the window opened and the dehumidifier going for the entire stay. We asked the staff and they said they knew about the smell and it’s likely something behind the wall. This is potentially a health hazard and the room should not be rented if that is the case. Very disappointed. Especially because the room fee was one of the highest for the SYHA hostels!

Portree can be reached by direct buses from Glasgow and Inverness and the bus stop is only a couple of minutes away from the youth hostel.

From the Skye Bridge it takes approximately 50 minutes to drive to Portree. After crossing the Skye Bridge the road passes through Broadford then past Sligachan with great views of the Cullin mountains until it reaches Portree. On entering Portree town continue past the Aros Centre and Portree High School on the left. Close to it is a turn off signposted to Dunvegan and Uig - keep to the main road to the right.
