Broadford Backpackers Hostel

We are a small backpackers hostel on the beautiful Isle of Skye in the village of Broadford. We are located on the main bus route of the Island and are within walking distance of bars, shops, and a supermarket. There are many beautiful walks within walking distance of the hostel. We need a wee bit of help with cleaning, laundry, maintenance, in exchange for a free bed. As we can only offer a bed we only ask 3 hours (or so) of work 6 out of 7 days. The minimum stay is 30 days.

We are Anthony and Ellis, a Franco-Dutch couple being responsible for a Hostel and B&B in the beautiful Isle of Skye. We traveled, volunteered and explored many countries the past few years and we are now back in Scotland because we are in love with the highlands. We also have a small dog living with us at the hostel. It's a Parson Russel and it's a big dog in a small package! :) He loves to play and he always joins us when we are out hiking somewhere. When we have time we love to watch movies together with the volunteers, going out for hikes, having a nice hot brew at lovely coffee places or playing board games.

I loved my experience at Broadford. The Isle of Skye is an indescribable beauty.

The managers, a couple - Ellis and Anthony are super kind and flexible, took me to see beautiful places and even sharing the knowledge they have about the place, they make you feel at home all the time! super friendly!

The work is very smooth and easy. If you love nature and breathtaking landscapes, this is the place you really need to know, you can make several shorter walks near the hostel and also long walks that are exciting. Super recommend!




Fui voluntaria durante tres meses, Ellis y Anthony son la pareja encargada del hostel como de un Bed and Breakfast, los horarios son adecuados, las tareas son entretenidas para quienes les gusta la hotelería en general y Broadford es un pequeño pueblo, tranquilo, hermoso y con gente amable. La isla de Skye es preciosa y la cultura escocesa está en cada rincón. Lo interesante de este voluntariado fue la oportunidad de aportar desde mis habilidades y gustos. quedo muy agradecida de la experiencia y la acogida recibida.




Had the best time here. Management were awesome and the hostel itself made me feel right at home. Broadford is a small yet fun town with great pubs and a good supermarket. The mountains and the scenery are epic. I would recommend this to anyone.




It was one of the best experiences I've had in my life, I made a lot of friendships, and I was treated very well, Anthony and all the staff are amazing! I had a lot of fun being part of the team! thanks sensei Anthony (just kidding)




My experience at Broadford Backpackers was memorable.
The hostel is great: clean, pretty and with lots of facilities; but the people are even better! Anthony and Ellis really make you feel at home, and I'm truly grateful to them for making things so easy and for always making you feel a part of the hostel.
The work is easy and fast; hours are short and it's mostly cleaning, not really demanding. You have quite a lot of free time, which I personally recommend to invest in exploring the island. Skye's beauty is astonishing, and if you're into hiking it's the perfect place for you!
