If you're interested in joining us, please tell us a little bit about yourself and why you think you'd be a good addition to our team. We love receiving messages from potential helpers, but we do not have time to reply to messages that are not specific to our listing/location. We only accept applications from individuals, and cannot take couples.
Welcome to our hostel on the Isle of Skye! Providing comfort as well as a sharp design, we are a luxurious but friendly retreat on the Isle of Skye. There are gorgeous views of Uig bay and the sea through large windows which surround the main living and dining areas, and a large wood burning stove which gives a really warm and inviting atmosphere.
Our bunk beds have been custom made to provide wonderful sleeping areas complete with individual lights.
There are 34 beds divided into 6 dorms, and we also have 8 en-suite pods up on the hill behind the bunkhouse.
Please take a look at our availability calendar and contact us according to our availability; we generally only open positions up 2-3 months in advance, so it's a good idea to keep checking in. We love our Workawayers and need them all times of the year!
If you have great DIY skills, do get in touch - from time to time we do have projects going on and an experienced pair of hands, even for a couple of days, might be more than welcome!

This is your chance to experience life on the beautiful Isle of Skye. We are looking for someone who has fantastic cleaning skills and an eye for detail, as well as being friendly and welcoming to guests.
The main things we need some help with are cleaning tasks. The role is reasonably physical; bed making on upper and lower bunk beds, as well as lifting laundry bags and carrying them between the bunkhouse and the pods (sometimes in very Scottish weather!).
There may also be the opportunity for some reception work. We need honest, responsible folk with an enthusiastic and friendly personality. A good level of spoken English is quite important.
As well as accommodation in one of our luxury bunk beds (with curtains!) we also offer free internet, laundry, and tea & coffee. There is a great little village shop just down the hill from us.
We offer an allowance in line with minimum wage for hours worked, with accommodation provided at discount and deducted. For more information and details about the weekly allowance please contact us directly.
You will get 2-3 days off per week to explore and/ or relax.
We would like someone who can stay for at least a month.

You will have plenty of time to get out and about to explore the Isle of Skye. Uig is a small and friendly village with 2 shops, a hotel, a pub, a restaurant, a cafe and a brewery.
If you don't have transport there is a bus stop just past the end of our driveway where both the local buses and the Citylink stop, so easy to get out and about. Uig is also the gateway to the Outer Hebrides; just a quick hop on a ferry and you could be exploring Lewis, Uist and beyond.
If you want to relax, we have a wood burning stove in our lounge with a big picture window overlooking the bay. Skye offers some amazing hiking opportunities and fantastic scenery.
