Easily one of the friendliest and best-value hostels I've experienced. Staff were great, very helpful and welcoming. The room was comfortable with everything you need for a decent night's sleep. Toilets and showers perfectly clean and functional, with an extra external toilet/shower block for busy periods. Fantastic facilities including car park, WiFi, laundry service and covered outside drying space for... More

The bunk beds in the dorms were old and they only changed the sheets but not the duvet covers, not very hygienic if you ask me. They put a top sheet which gets washed then the duvet on top which they think is ok. We had a lot of bites that night, may have been midges but makes you wonder.... More

After being thoroughly let down and insulted by the BCC hostel down the road, Wendy (the hostel owner) did a brilliant job of sorting us out a private dorm for three people. Wendy was so welcoming and accommodating, we ended up having probably a much better time than we would have at the BCC hostel. Yes, the shower / bathroom... More

Nice little hostel with comfortable room (we had family room). Nice lounge and plenty of dining area. Kitchen is pretty small, but has everything needed. Free wifi, which is some SYHA still aren't doing. The staff are pretty "loose" but we had no issues. We enjoyed our night there.

This is a cheap hostel, well located for hillwalking, nothing more. It is quite small and busy. The showers are fine. We were in a twin room with a very creaky bunk bed. A couple of local pubs for food and a beer and a scotmid about five minutes walk away for supplies but it's a very quiet area.

This place wasn't the worst imaginable, and I can see not many people share this opinion, but contrasting to all the other hostels I stayed in, this place could do with a little help. The location is fine - Drumnadrochit is so tiny anyhow and this time of year, most of the place is shut down. On arrival, I found... More

I have stayed twice now and found it great both times. Very homely, clean and warm with good showers and kitchen facilities. Comfortable clean beds and a nice lounge room area to hang out. The staff are really nice and flexible and love giving out suggestions and tips on the area. Close to a good bar restaurant and walking distance... More

I can just say: Awesome. We came here after wet and cold with our backpacks, could sit in front of the fire, had a nice room and especially a perfect service! Even the next day we were allowed to stay a little longer as checkout. Everything is lovely like a self-drawn map of the city...

This is the best hostel ever! When you arrive you are welcomed by lovely staff (charlene and wendy) and the hostel although it is quiet is very homely. Its perfect place for a bit of time to take in nature and meet fellow travellers. Its suited on the great glen way so a perfect stop location. Showers and toilets are... More

It's the 3rd time I've stayed here, and I would definitely recommand it ! Warm atmosphere, super friendly staff and manager. Really clean and cosy. Because it's low season, it was really quiet, just what I was looking for. Great location: lots of walks to do around, just 30 minutes from Inverness. Small village, but everything you need: shops, pubs,... More
