For the price you pay I would definitely recommend a stay here! Me along with two of my wonderful friends stayed on the 17th Sept 2014 in one of the microlodges! A change from a B&B and worth it considering we only paid £15 each! The Microlodge is definitely roomy enough and you get a fridge, kettle, tv, heater and... More

We stayed a night in one of the micro lodges. Lots of room with fridge, kettle, tables/chairs. Amenities inside the hostel were great too including pool table and lots of room to make food in the kitchen and chil out. The only thing that would have made it better would have been getting pillows with the sleeping bags as you... More

Very friendly staff, excellent stay in the microlodge, never done that before, everything was nice and clean. When you're doing the West Highland Way, you must certainly book this place in Kinlochleven, you won't be dissapointed.

Although I haven't slept in the Blackwater Hostel myself, I can give a good feedback. My friends stayed in these unique pods and liked it very much. It was a perfect stop and accommodation when doing the West Highland Way.

Fantastic night. Very good room, reasonably priced and very friendly staff. Kitchen looked very good but we ate in town which was very close and a great chip shop. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately there was no breakfast offered which was a bit annoying but other than that it was a very good stay!

First time stopping in a Pod. It was a surprise for my husband and two daughters on our roadtrip of Scotland and apart from the beautiful scenery, which lasts easily over an hour in all directions from Kinlochleven, stopping here was one of my favourite parts. Highly recommend, friendly staff, very clean and every thing looks brand new. Just don't... More

No luxury, but en suite room in a hostel, and very clean. Service efficient, but mostly absent. All amenities nearby in the village. Thin walls, but no complaints as all WHW hikers mostly are too tired to stay up long anyway.

We received a very warm welcome and the pod had everything we needed for a nights stay. The midges were bothersome, even in September, so be prepared! The shower/toilet block was very clean, lots of hot water. The hostel kitchen was very well equipped if you need to use it or borrow anything. Overall, a very good place to stay.

We stayed in a micro lodge, it is perfect for an overnight/2 night break, if you don't take a lot of stuff, if you do book a mega lodge. Quiet, good local amenities. Would stay again, but in a mega lodge, just for the extra room.
