Excellent location and cheap for when finishing climbing Ben Nevis. The views are amazing so it was a good opportunity to take pictures. It is a good walk into town, but this only felt very far because i had just climbed Ben Nevis.

We started the three peaks challenge at 3am so decided to stay at the hostel the night before we set off. There are no sockets in the room. The showers are dirty and all the corridors amplify the noise from around the hostel. The room was warm and the only option was to open the window which then blew the... More

After walking the West Highland Way, a large group of us stayed at the Glen Nevis Youth Hostel for the night before the flight back home to Dubai. First of all, the views were great! We were literally footsteps away from Ben Nevis and the area was very scenic. The staff could have been friendlier but nonetheless they were still... More

My last visit to the Glen Nevis Youth Hostel was 45 years ago and much has changed since then.On arrival I received a very friendly welcome from the helpful staff. I stayed in a room with 6 bunk-beds but there was enough room for my rucksack and waterproofs. The communal kitchen is excellent. Plenty of fridge space and pigeon-holes for... More

This hostel had helpful, friendly , young staff and friendly atmosphere. The twin room was small and contained a bin, a mirror and two very squeeky beds. There were no plug sockets so we had to charge our phone in the dining room. £61 room only, for two people was more expensive than all the other accommodation we paid for... More

I have been youth hostelling for many years now and this hostel has to be the worst and most disappointing experience I have had yet. Stayed in October 2013 with 4 people. Bad points - 1. very thin walls so you can hear everything. 2. men in crowds were noisy (had to open door and shout for them to be... More

Excellent hostel. Service was great in what was a very busy time of year. You really cannot get a better location being at the foot of Ben Nevis. Incredible place. The rooms themselves were great, comfortable beds and spacious. Very clean The only downside is that there is no power outlets in the rooms which was annoying for things like... More

This hostel is about a 3 mile walk from the train station (and town) in Fort William and sits right beneath Ben Nevis. There is a cafe and pub just down the road, which is convenient. It is clean with a big kitchen area and good washrooms (including a family washroom) - they even provided towels. We stayed in a... More
