We just came back from a massive days walking, as we were doing the West Highland Way but the guy didn't let us in and was the grumpiest most unhelpful person I've ever met. The beds were dirty and really uncomfortable. The next day he said "don't follow the WHW path at the start because it is all bog and... More

After an exhausting day of walking and climbing I was cautiously looking forward to getting my head down after a hot shower. I say cautiously as I had read previous reviews. Nothing could prepare me or my 6 friends for the smell that hit us when we opened the door to the rooms. The place was disgusting!!!! Obviously hadn't been... More

It seems that bad reviews can be infectious. Overall the focus has been on bad customer service. And yes, the bunkhouse doesn't open until 5pm (this was made perfectly clear to me on the phone). And, yes the showers are rubbish (Steve, please sort this out as I spent 15 minutes trying not to flay my skin off or freeze... More

Having stayed here a number of times from 2004-2008, we were extremely disappointed to see how run down this accommodation has become. It used to be our favourite stay on the WHW, but will never stay here again and will instead splash out for the hotel. Steve, the owner, was a nice guy with good chat, but the room, particularly...

West Highland Way Sleeper was our only choice for our stay in the scenic Bridge of Orchy. My group was wary of the hygiene conditions in the place and we all got bedbug bites eventually! Horrible experience! A week has passed and we are all suffering from itching and swelling. Cheap night stay but well if you are concerned about... More

After reading reviews I was prepared for the worst but the owners were perfectly nice, the place was clean (minus the kitchen that we didn't use) and everything went smoothly. Cheap and cheerful. Very nice views and the train coming in is very cool.

We often frequent hostels and given the standard that both the YHA and SYHA set, as an independent hostel this was pretty shocking. In terms of history and location this place has a lot of potential, but this place is fundamentally let down by 2 things: 1. Cleanliness: Looking through the window into the kitchen (which we never used) and... More
