We booked this hostel for an overnight stay on our way to Inverness. The room and shower were warm and a good size for a family of four. There is also a comfortable common/dining room and WiFi. What let the hostel down was the kitchen area, which shows signs of wear and tear. At breakfast the cereals were stale, which... More

After travelling around Scotland till later than we predicted we became stuck for a camping place and BCC Loch Ness hostel saved us by letting us book and showed us around at a very late hour. My 7 year old daughter especially loved it as it was "like being a hobbit" for a night. It had beautiful surroundings and good... More

After my husband returned to our car upon check-in, he was told the private en-suite double room we booked was "just at the top of the hill" and the key was in the door. Made me wonder what we were in for, especially as we drove up a rather steep hill in deep gravel. Nowhere on the website does it... More

Claims to offer 5-star luxury hostel accommodation, but it plainly isn't. We stayed in a 4-bed room which had comfortable beds with warm duvets, but no pillow protectors. The shower was good, but towels stayed damp all week (and no sign of a general drying room). The big communal room was good, but the kitchen facilities were poor: limited utensils,... More

The rooms are spacious and luxurious for a hostel, the staff is very nice and helpful. There is a well equiped kitchen that is clean and useful. We had a bit of a struggle to find but if you keep going on the main road you can see a sign. I will defo stay there again. There is no wifi... More

Pretty relaxed place, nice commen areas, clean kitchen and bathrooms. Small dorms, but ok beds and plenty of fresh air. Not much electricity in the rooms - I had the soklet. Do it yourself breakfast for 3£ is a bit too much. If you stay more days go to the supermarked. There is a good supermarked in town.

I booked for private triple room ensuite few weeks ago and paid for the down payment. Unfortunately without any pre-noticed, they gave the excuse for not receiving my booking upon my arrival. Without any apologies, the owner of this hostel Donald, simply direct me to another hostel called Lochness Backpacker. He said Ms Wendy will be able to help me... More

We actually booked a room here by mistake...we meant to stay at a different glamping site down the street. But I am SO glad we ended up here! We had a hobbit, which was lovely. I was traveling with my boyfriend (mid 20's) and my Mom (mid 50's), so I was worried that the glamping experience wouldn't be a good... More

We stayed here for 1 night whilst doing the Great Glen Way. It's actually 10km from Drumnadrochit so not very convenient! We had to pay £24 for 2 taxis as we had missed the bus! When we arrived there was no record of our booking, although I had the confirmation email! They did manage to find room for us but... More
