Located close to the main road on the Isle of Skye, Broadford Youth Hostel enjoys unrivalled coastal and mountain views. Its central location and good public transport links make it an ideal base for exploring the island. The hostel has a mix of shared accommodation and private rooms and is well equipped to cater for individual hostellers and groups.

Local amenities such as shops and restaurants are within easy walking distance and the youth hostel has a number of facilities to make your stay as comfortable as possible including a large self-catering kitchen, laundry and drying room, small shop on site, internet access, WiFI and a secure bike shed. Relax in the communal areas and take in the beautiful views over Broadford Bay.

The famous Cuillin mountain range is just 15 miles away for serious walkers and climbers, while the less adventurous can enjoy Skye's magnificent scenery from several less strenuous coastal walks. The International Otter Survival Fund is based in Broadford and boat trips are available to Loch Coruisk, within driving distance of the hostel.
