The pods were really nice and reminiscent of hobbit house and great for a trip away. the staff were really friendly and welcoming. The people in the village are all really friendly and made the trip, and the scenery is beautiful.

Welcoming place to stay after a hard days walk on West Highland Way. Communal area to cook and very pleasant place to stay . Would highly recommend. Accommodation was lodge and came with good facilities and a TV which was welcome after a few hard days on WHw

We were a small group of 6 staying in a shared room. The Blackwater Hostel had friendly staff, a great rec room and were flexible about us cheking in slightly early. No problems and I'd recommend it to others.

We always receive great service - have been coming here for years. The rooms are all clean and warm with ensuite facilities. Kitchen facilities and equipment are very good. We come as a party of nearly 50 people every year and the family always ensure that our stay is a great one. Would highly recommend this hostel!

Everything fine, clean hostel with a big kitchen and a friendly owner. It was although possible to play billiard and to know other guests of the hostel. It lies in a nice quiet area with a lot of beautiful mountains around.

We stayed in one of the micro lodges next to the hostel. It was clean and very cosy. The toilet facilities in the main hostel were clean and well looked after and the reception staff were very welcoming. A few hooks in the lodges to hang up coats would be great - there is a drying room for wet kit... More

This was a fantastic location and a wonderfully cozy lodge to stay in and have a fun few days with friends. Very comfy beds, nice showers and very clean facilities. The lodge had everything we needed.

3 of us stayed in a Mega Lodge for one night rather than camping and thank goodness we did. It poured with rain all night and we were comfortable and warm in our lodge. Lots of room with storage under the beds and a table to eat at. Microwave and kettle ideal for our needs and a fridge to store... More

We have been staying at the hostel for the past few years and always look forward to returning each time. It's always clean, tidy and cosy with a lovely friendly atmosphere. The team from the family run business are always very friendly and helpful. HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!
