The Experience

A little hostel in Isle of Skye. We need a wee bit of help making beds, cleaning the rooms, serving breakfast in the morning. And also 15 minutes at night, helping out closing and cleaning the kitchen. It is really easy once you get the routine. You'll have plenty of time for hiking, discovering the island, and enjoying what Skye can offer you! See you very soon guys. Cheers.

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!

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.

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!

I had such a great time working (well not even) at the Broadford Backpackers. Everything was as I imagined and more. Anthony and Ellis are such a beautiful people. You will feel like a spoiled kid, when you stay with them more than a few days.
We usually finished our work in 2 hours so we had so much time for our activities such as hiking ( Anthony always knows, where are the best tracks), cooking and drinking hostels FREE coffe, enjoying our cosy living room and even cosier sofa.
If you are still thinking whether to go here or not, GO !
