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... More

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

Thank-you for your review! We are the perfect spot for exploring Loch Ness and the surrounding area by foot, by bike, or on the water with Nessie herself! There is numerous hiking trails and cycling routes accessible from the hostel and we can provide maps and advice on where to go. We have a fully stocked self-catering kitchen but we... More

My daughter(25) and I(62) were on a cycling holiday along the Great Glen in the last week of August 2014. We stayed at Morag's on 25th, total cost was £52 for a twin room (there was room for 4 people) and we paid £3.60 each for breakfast. When I booked the room, I thought that Morag's was a guesthouse, whereas... More
