Stayed here while studying abroad for a few days and totally had a blast! Their staff was probably the nicest I've ever met! Julia is the BEST! Definitely recommend it to anyone interested in traveling to the area!

Great live music!! There's a bar in the hostel that has live music and they have their own local beer. 5-10 minute walk to the little town and the Loch Ness boat cruise. Breakfast, all you can eat, for about £4 including boiled eggs! Which was a pleasant change after a week of cereal and toast.

We stopped here for two nights in our 3 day Haggis Adventure tour. It's a great little hostel with good facilities. We enjoyed the pub quiz and the haggis stuffed chicken on our first night was extremely delicious (particularly the whiskey cream sauce). We took the river cruise on Loch Ness and were in awe of the size of the... More

I stayed at Morag's lodge for 2 nights during my Haggis Adventures tour, it was really great! The pub is small but fun, the staff is great, and the rooms are clean. It was great to have a bathroom in our room, not down the hall like most hostels. I ordered dinner one of the nights, it was tasty and... More

Arrived one rainy Sunday. Nobody home but the keys had been left in the porch (we had pre-booked) so we were able to change, shower and make a drink. Diodn't see the host till next morning but the place was clean and well-appointed.

Good facilities. Good showers. Absolutely fine if you're a student hut otherwise just annoying. All most people want is a cheap bed for the night after a long day, not a load of "entertainment" and "banter". I got up at 4 am and slept in the reception due to some snoring idiot. I was glad to leave and cycled on... More

This is what makes hostel life exciting! The communal nature of hostel means that "banter"... More

Stayed at Morags as part of a tour for 2 nights and enjoyed both! The room we were in was fairly small for 6 people but the ensure bathroom was a good size.

We only stayed one night and rented out a "castle" room which was like a four bed dorm because there were no doubles left. One of the bottom bunks was a double bed so that worked out fine. The room was basic and clean with an ensuite bathroom. We really liked the downstairs lounge areas as well with comfy couches,... More

Clean, well located, friendly staff, good live music, fun bar and laundry service available. Decent dinner and continental breakfast.Wifi only available in lobby. If you think of this as a hostel, you will see it as a bit pricey but if you see it as a budget hotel, you will be pleased.

We only stayed one night but It felt like we were family. The meals were great, the activities in the bar are a plenty and the staff were fantastic. The rooms and facilities were very clean. I can't wait to go back to Scotland and I will definitely go back.
