We loved our stay at the wild goose! Absolutely the coziest, most charming hostel I've ever been to. The rooms were clean and the fellow travelers were charming. It's a bit out of the way from Fort William but totally worth it! Very close to neptunes staircase

Recently myself and my two children stayed at the hostel on the way to Eigg, as it was not too far away from Mallaig, where the ferry leaves from. For my kids, it was their first stay at a "real"hostel, and they were slightly apprehensive. When we arrived the lady on reception was very welcoming and made us all feel... More

We stayed a group here for several days. The location in Banavie the taxi driver easily found for us. The place in itself is average: not much space for stuff in each room, but just enough to make it work. The staff we found very friendly and helpful and overall we were happy with our stay.

I quite enjoyed the stay in the hostel. It was clean, tidy, with very-well equipped self-catering kitchen. It is quite far from Fort William and West Highland Way, the nearest shop is 15 minutes walk. The staff were really helpful and there was a lot of bathrooms. Rooms were simple; not new, but well maintained. There was no drying room,... More

I booked a bed here in the afternoon and drove there from Glasgow during the day. The online booking was easy and the price is very good. It's difficult to find as the navigation system wouldn't not take me there but I found a cab driver and he gave me the directions I needed. The staff are extremely friendly and... More

We recently stayed here for one night. The room was nice and spacious for a 4 bed dorm. There are outdoor seating areas for when the weather is nice. There is also comfy sofas inside to relax at night. The guy on reception was very friendly & helpful, he recommended somewhere to eat & showed us how to get there.... More

The hostel is a short bus ride (5mins) from ft william (pro tip: go to the supermarket before the hostel near the station for food) - pretty walks all around and neptunes steps very close. You can buy continental breakfast in the morning, they have laundry for 5,50£ (but not weight based), the bathrooms were clean, showers hot. Kitchen facilities... More

It usually is location, location, location is it not? But this is different. The location was great as far as it lies in Fort William so if you arrive from West Highland Way and are in for Ben Nevis, you are in the right place. The hostel lies a couple of kilometers "wrong side" outside for that though. The facility... More

The let down in this hostel was the toilets. One bath didn't drain,one bathroom light didn't work,if you didn't get the electric shower then your shower could run cold leaving you standing ankle deep in dirty water. Otherwise like hostels elsewhere it was a place to sleep after a day on the fabulous mountains. The local pub Lochy was 5minutes... More

The were great! Really cheerful and let me drop my luggage off early. The hostel is a bit older so each room and bathroom are different, but still very clean. Great lounge to sit and hang out in. In just one night I made plenty of friends to go out with. A bit further from Fort William than I thought.... More
