Our main building, aka the original hostel, is a spacious converted stone farm building. It has a big fully equipped kitchen. The common area has a wood burning stove and plenty of seating and tables. This building has two large private rooms for six people. Each room has private en-suite shower and toilet facilities. However, the kitchen is shared between the two rooms.

Hostel World  

Flora Macdonald Hostel, Isle of Skye - Hostelworld

We had a very comfortable stay at the Flora Macdonald Hostel, the warden was most attentive and very helpful. The kitchen facilities were limited, if the hostel at been full, the kitchen would be very cramped with only one kettle, one micowave and one sink and lack of bench space would make things be very difficult.
