We stayed here a larger group and liked it a lot. The location is a bit remote, but the place itself is spacious and well equipped. There was plenty of room for all of us and the facilities in very good conditions - kitchen, bath room and living room included. They had a big room for drying stuff outside, which... More

Very welcoming and friendly when we arrived drenched from the rain on our bikes! The little assistant at reception was also lovely and very helpful when I wanted to buy a couple of drinks! The hostel itself is great - our 6 bed dorm was spacious and clean. The kitchen is very well equipped, and everything is high quality. Free... More

Spacious, very clean hostel in great location for Great Glen Way. Very impressed with cleanliness and facilities, wee shop was great too. Staff very friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. We had a whole dorm to ourselves so it felt more like a hotel! Great shower too.

It is a very well managed hostel. Extremely clean, great communal areas, squeaky clean showers and a very spacious kitchen. The hostel shop has all the basics that one would require. We stayed for a night and it was very quiet and comfortable. If you are walking the great glen way then its located close to the route.

Very well run hostel on the Great Glen route. It was undergoing some alterations when we stayed but the dormitories and kitchen facilities could not be faulted. Highly recommended. The place is a tad isolated so if you are self-catering I'd come with provisions although you can buy the basics at the hostel shop.

This hostel is great! We were doing The Great Glen Way so it was a welcome sight after 30kms!!! Very comfortable and very clean. There's a little shop with everything you need to survive if you can't get to a shop...and I'm vegan so it's not always easy. We stayed in two rooms over two nights and both were very... More

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....
