Fantastic stay with a lovely warm welcome from Audrey. Facilities were brilliant with everything there we needed. Room, toilets and shower were lovely and clean. It made a long cycle the next day a lot easier knowing that we had a good sleep and warm breakfast. Thank you.

We walked to the youth hostel from Glen Affric lodge and arrived at this youth hostel in the middle of nowhere to a warm welcome from Hannah. She had made scones with cinnamon and dates freshly baked - delicious! What a fantastic place. Our party of shared a dormitory and the facilities were perfect - glamping! The Buchan family

We arrived in the rain, and the rain and wind continued to be a part of our three days hill walking, but thankfully this warm haven of tranquillity revived the spirits (and dried the cloths) every evening. Hanna's low key warden style complimented the friendly atmosphere of this remote hostel retreat, and there was a constant stream of similar minded... More

Really comfortable and welcoming hostel surrounded by great mountains and walks. Wonderful place to walk or simply to relax and enjoy the scenery. I can see why it is so many people's favourite hostel

A great experience. A well run hostel, clean, warm and cosy. The weather was awful when we arrived, soaking wet and very tired. Hanna, the warden, made us tea and helped us to dry our gear by the wood burning stoves. No mobile signal, 9mile walk in carrying all you need, great views, a warm welcome plus we met some... More

A one night stay cycling in from the Glen Affric road end. Found the hostel busy due to the TGO Challenge going on at the time but a very warm welcome from Hanne the resident warden. A comfortable evening followed a decent sleep and a day on the hill all rounded off by a large pot of tea before we... More

This is the second time I've stayed at this hostel. First time was in 1993 and there was no electricity or hot water. The second time, what a difference! There is now solar and wind power to for electricity and a coal/peat fire to provide hot water. Even better, there is also a shower, even though it was a meagre... More

This is a hostel perfect for walking the hills right on the doorstep. Basic accommodation and facilities, walk in from Cluanie Inn is bog factor 5! It would be possible to cycle up Glen Affric as it’s a decent track. Warden was very helpful.

This hostel makes the perfect base for bagging some of Scotland's most remote munros (plus one corbett!). It's appeal for me is the effort to get here - reasonable from east or west but a nightmare mud-fest via the right of way An Caorann Mor from the south. Don't expect luxury here - rustic and basic is how it's best... More
