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

You'll find here a very pretty place to stay, to rest, to meet people. The staff is welcoming, efficient and very kind, the village of Banavie itself is really welcoming as well, with a wonderful pub run by extremely nice people.

Och aye the noo, my fellow Jedi Wild Goose Chasers! Myself and 3 friends stayed at Chase the Wild Goose Hostel and it was way beyond our expectations and superb value for money! The staff were attentive, informative and very welcoming, leaving you with plenty of space to relax, or happily ready to chit chat and give you information about... More

Friendly hostel with large and comfortable dormitories, very helpful staff. The only drawback is that the hostel is relatively far from the centre of Fort William and of the hiking spot, it is better to have a car during your stay there!

I stayed here with family and friends in August 2015. The staff were excellent; accommodating, welcoming and very helpful. However, the condition of the property is very poor. It needs some TLC. The décor is very worn and dated. The rooms are needing renovated: they were hot and we could not open any windows, they were painted shut. The bathrooms... More

We stayed here for one night in preparation for the Three Peaks Challenge in early July. The receptionist was pleasant and welcoming as were the other guests we met. The rooms was pretty basic, but pretty standard when it came to a dormitory standard. The beds were well spaced with adequate room for each individual. I forget which room we... More

The best part of the hostel is meeting and making friends from around the world. The hostel has got very good facilities with the kitchen, bathroom and dinning area. The staff are also very friendly and attend to your needs. The hostel is about 10min drive to Ben Nevis if driving and also about 2 miles to the supermarket for... More

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
