It was easy to find it and close to the down town with stores and bars. At my times, there are a lot of moscitos in this area. Facilities are useful. The micro lodge hostel had a original idea with this round shelders, which its make that destination special.

We were lucky to get the last pod with a late booking. Great location next to the river. Our pod was really warm and cozy, TV was appreciated by some of us, though others were surprised to see it. We rented sleeping bags with liners which were easy to use and much better than dragging bed linen around with us.... More

We stayed a few days in the Pods and had a great time, plenty of good eating places in the surrounding area and you won't be short of places to go hill walking ; ) We took an inflatable kayak with us and a short ten minute walk gets you to a good launch point at the loch. The locals... More

Beautiful place and lovely and sunny and the owner Callum was very helpful and friendly. We stopped here as part of the west highland way. We walked only a few steps off the path to our bed. There is a coop very close by to buy food and pubs too.

This would have been 5 stars but for the fire alarm that went off in the middle of the night. Clean, tidy, well set up, excellent facilities, fresh linen, easy to book, good showers, good drying room. Highly recommended.

Fantastic location, absolutely beautiful. Wonderfully designed Glamping Pods, apart from the rock hard mattresses! Take midge spray with you or get eaten alive like we did! Great fish and chips in the village and interesting exhibition about the aluminium history of the village.

We as a group thought the hostel was well catered for and the management were perfect. We have raved about it since finishing the west Highland way and would recommend anyone who does the west Highland way to definitely stop over at the hostel xx

Friendly staff, clean properties, beautiful sight on the mountain and the river. People were really respectful of the place, not making noise at night or early morning. Charming place with the sound of the river to lull us. The room had all the needed equipments.
