Superb hostel in a stunning location which ticked all the right boxes in relation to friendliness, cleanliness, informed local knowledge and comfort. Cracking showers with oodles of hot water and a warm, spacious and private room for two. Kerry and I should know what makes a good hostel as we run the Smugglers Hostel in Tomintoul and really appreciated the... More

Have stayed at many superb independant Scottish hostels. Was utterly appalled at SYHA's laughable policy of locking the front doors and kitchen doors at 11pm, leaving you rushing home early from the bar and unable to get your supper. Absolutely disgraceful policy and not acceptable. The bunkrooms were large and I had to share with numerous snoring strangers (most hostels... More

Stayed here a number of times over the years. Lovely location, and parking outside the hostel has never been difficult - even though it's the main high street. Hostel is clean and comfortable. Good facilities and friendly welcome / service. Great views from the front of building.

We stayed at the hostel for two nights in a double room with a shared bathroom. It was fairly pricey, at almost £50 per night for the room (as we also had to purchase 'temporary memberships'). However, it was clean, comfortable and in a good location. The cleanliness and comfort chanes significantly on the second day with the arrival of... More

I have stayed in Ullapool hostel several time over the years and it has always been a good experience. The dorm over looks the loch and what a view. The staff are helpful and friendly. A big kitchen which was well equipped with all you need to cook a hearty meal from scratch. I'll no doubt be back again .

The very polite, pleasant and helpful chap behind the reception desk was able to find a double (yes, a double!) bed in a private room for my boyfriend and me. The room was basic and clean, as were the showers. There seemed to be quite a few rooms, yet the place still retained the atmosphere of a small and friendly... More

The hostel was nice and the staff were very friendly. You have to make your bed when you get there. The room had 3 beds (one bunk and a single) and was pretty small, but it had a great view of the harbour.
