I, like most of the people on here, stayed here as part of the Haggis Adventure tour and I have no real complaints. We had a 4 person room, which had two sets of bunk beds (they were comfortable enough, even if I DIDN'T get the top bunk) and there was plenty of space in the room. The pillows were... More

I stayed here during my Haggis adventure tour for two nights. They turn the heat and hot off at night. They open the windows during the day for some reason. I came into a cold room, without heat. The shower was not draining so I asked if they could look at it. The front desk said they have a stopper... More

If you are on a longer haggis tour this accommodation will probably be included. From a solo traveller point of view there were a couple of things which would make me stay elsewhere next time. Firstly I'm not a fan of mixed dorms. Also the communal areas are a bit short on space particularly if there are coach loads of... More

I stayed here for two nights as part of a tour of the Scottish Highlands. The hostels was good in regards to cleanliness, service and facilities. The only draw back was the cost as I feel it's a little expensive. The breakfast was not included in the prize and was now worth the added cost. Internet only worked in the... More

I stayed at Mo's for two nights during my tour with Haggis Day Adventures and I enjoyed it immensely! The atmosphere was upbeat, the beds were comfortable, the food amazing and the bathrooms were huge for a hostel. The service was fantastic and the bar was a huge plus. Mo's set the stage for many happy memories with friends. I... More

My wife and I and our two young daughters stayed in a very comfortable family room (double bed and a bunk bed) with a spotlessly clean ensuite bathroom. The shower (the most important thing for me) was hot and powerful- a very pleasant surprise after many previous experiences in hostels (and hotels) around the world. The staff were also very...

The hostel was well located near the centre of the (small) town (bikes are available to hire). The staff were friendly and our room was good with an excellent bathroom facility. Loch Ness itself didn't provide many walking opportunities around the loch, so I would recommend one of the boat trips. The kitchen was small and the dining room wasn't... More
