A very professionally run hostel. Very clean and excellent showers. The shop on site is very handy and sells most things you could need. Amazing drying room which was much required! The twin room was very comfortable and the communal areas were very spacious.

This is a good budget option when walking the Great Glen Way. The rooms are basic but the hostel has everything you need and it's quite modern and warm. The shop sells basic provisions, which is very useful for those who need to buy breakfast or stock up for a packed lunch.

We stayed for one night after walking 23 miles from Fort William. It was well signposted from the path and it was a welcoming sight after a long day! Clement (?) warmly welcomed us on arrival. Our rooms were perfect for our needs as was the drying room and kitchen facilities. The lounge area had very comfy sofas and a... More

Stayed here 1 night whilst doing the Great Glen Way. Great facilities, great little shop on the premises that is great value. No alcohol sold though. Huge kitchen which is fully stocked with crockery and appliances etc. Free tea and coffee and super chilling area with plenty of settees and 26" flat screen TV. Our room was spacious and clean....

I only spent a night in the hostel but I loved the building, the room and also the location. It is easy to find and offers plenty of parking space. Great for exploring the Great Glen. It is about 2 hours drive to Skye, so a one day trip to Skye is possible, too. I will definitely be back. When... More

The Great Glen hostel is a beautifully situated accommodation along the Great Glen way towards Fort Augustus. The hostel is basic in it's facilities, but its sufficient for the backpackers who come to stay for a single night. The rooms are basic, but very clean, and offer some beautiful views, no matter which side of the building you stay. The... More

We stayed here for two nights in mid-June in a group of eight while travelling the highlands. This was hands-down the most impressive hostel I've stayed in. The lady at reception was extremely helpful in recommending hiking routes, the kitchen was big and excellently equipped, and the common areas were spacious, clean and comfortable. It's a hostel, so bunk beds... More

Staff were very helpful (lovely guy put my leg of my sunglasses back on after it snapped off), shop was very well stocked and very, very reasonable so no need to carry food. We got an upgrade to a larger room free of charge...spotless....shower room very modern... More

Just enjoyed a weekend climbing Ben Nevis and staying in the Great Glen Hostel for 2 nights. Our room was comfortable and clean and we had a PC in our room which was a nice surprise. Kitchen is a good size and able to accommodate multiple chefs. Plenty of sofas, TV, and tables and chairs and another PC in the... More

Twin room booked, didn't expect bunkbeds but it was fun. Very clean, excellent facilities, we were too lazy to cook but the kitchen looked great with all mod cons you'd need to making your own meal. Wee bits and pieces in terms of food and drinks sold when reception open. Free WiFi too though phone reception not great
