We staid in Ben Nevis two nights while visiting the highlands. The staff was very cool and helpful. Described the way to the closest pub or gave us tips how to get around without a car. Of course, the hostel is full of hikers so especially in dorms with many people it can get pretty smelly quickly - but that's... More

Staff were very friendly. The dorm rooms were clean, as were the bathrooms. Can't fault the place! We were off hiking for the weekend so being able to leave the car in the hostel car park was very helpful.

Stayed here after finishing the west highland way and really needing a shower and a rest, the woman on the reception was really nice and helpful. Excellent place to stay for exploring the local area-ben nevis, fort william, nevis range. Great value for money as well. Recommended!

I had a great time at chase the wild goose.. Mostly because the staff were lovely, and we spent lots of time just hanging out and becoming friends. The hostel is well located, with information about pretty much anything you'd want to do in the Fort William area.

Me & my brother stayed 1 night at the hostel although little expensive for a hostel in a vry tiny little city, it was really worth it. The rooms were clean & tidy & the view from the hostel was beautiful. We wished we stayed longer. Henry was helpful & friendly & answered all our queries patiently. The breakfast spread... More

Chase the wild goose is a good hostel. The people there were friendly. The staff were friendly and helpful. Banavie is a quiet village with great views of the Ben and its surrounding mountains. I will be going back there next year,
