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

I stayed at the Loch Ness Backpackers hostel while I was walking the Great Glen Way (the hostel is right before the last stage, in Drumnadrochit). The hostel is very cheap and clean (£17 per person per night) and has free WiFi and laundry service (you just pay £3.50 and they'll wash and dry everything for you). There is a... More

The location was really easy to find, prices are really cheap, the girs working there (Andrea and Charlyn) were super nice and helpful. Showers are great, bed comfortable, a bit annoying that the showers and bathroom are so far from the upper rooms but that's about it :)

We were walking the Great Glen Way and we had booked in here for one nights stay. Wendy very kindly upgraded us to a larger room with enough beds so no one had to climb into a bunk free of charge (three middle aged girls). Showers were terrific and clean. Wendy helped charge our phones after our charger broke, provided... More

Last week we left Skye and took a bus towards Inverness, but we wanted to spend a few nights in Drumnadrochit. The night before our departure, I made a reservation on Hostel World to stay at the LN Backpackers but unfortunately it didn't go through. When we got there Wendy, the owner, had no reservation and I was very confused... More

Wendy and her staff were very accommodating for myself and my weary friend Cammy. They made us feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and it was a fitting end to our Great Glen Way trek. The facilities were excellent. Bed was the comfiest we slept on all throughout the Great Glen Way and the shower was a real... More
