- Great place to stay. Rooms and beds were fine. - Two members of staff were personable. They were genuinely interested in your travels and ready to help. - Very accommodating for a solo cyclist and his bike! - Prices were reasonable. Would recommend this hostel!

We had a wonderful stay at this hostel! We were greeted with a warm welcome and check in was seamless. The location is beautiful. There is a park across the street and "Neptune's Staircase" is a 2 minute walk. It was very cool to watch a boat go through the lock. There is a large kitchen which we loved! There... More

On arrival we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who gave us our keys. He asked why we're were staying and we replied that we were climbing Ben Nevis the day after. He asked how we were getting to the Nevis and we replied that we were driving. He said that the hostel had volunteers who could drive us there.... More

Excellent location by the Caledonian Canal, with a view of Ben Nevis from our room. Staff were great, very friendly and helpful. Generous self-serve breakfast for the price. Made it up the Ben the next morning after a good nights sleep. Would highly recommend

Highly recommended Fort William accommodation! I stayed in a private room with 3 friends in September as we were in town to do the Ben Nevis challenge. Check-in and out was hassle free. When we arrived we were greeted at the desk by a friendly and helpful chap who gave us our keys and pointed us to the nearest pub... More

Fantastic hostel! Very cosy and homely with a great atmosphere. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Fully equipped kitchen with everything you could need. Beds weren't very comfortable, but the rest of the hostel facilities make up for it. Located a few miles out of Fort William, so a car is ideal for a stay here. Would definitely stay here... More

A really spacious, comfy hostel and a great location with super friendly and helpful staff. We had a very welcome night of luxury and rest after the West Highland Way and really appreciated the hot hot showers and big comfy sofas in the lounge.

Won't be put off by the distance from Fort William, you can reach the hostel by train or bus and the staff will give you advice on transport if you need it. The hostel is in a big house, the dorms are a good size with comfy beds, ours had a sink for washing hands and brushing teeth etc. There... More

Stayed 1 night en route to next activity. Basic but good hostel with comfortable bed, adequate facilities and kitchen. Henry was very friendly and helpful. Location is near the canal, train station and main road. Good pub across the road, good food and friendly staff.

While a bit remote, it is convenient to bike hire and kayaking near Neptune's Staircase (Rockhopper). One restaurant and pub nearby. Supermarket is a 1 mile walk to Corpach or a 1.15 pound (each way) bus ride into Fort William. Cleaned well every day, friendly staff and guests - many here to climb Ben Nevis. The property is looking a... More
