This bunkhouse was a great find. Location ideal as a central base for walking and climbing (conditions dictating). Bunkhouse compact but comfortable, the kitchen well-equipped and impeccably clean, rooms more than adequate and bathrooms very clean with great showers. Nice fast wifi. Drying room upstairs was warm with racks and hangers. Off road parking around the back. Laurie, the owner,... More

This is a great hostel, with a friendly owner. They helped us out when road closures through snow drifts interrupted our other plans, and were able to give good weather advice. Local shops and good pubs just a short walk away.

We stayed here with teenagers and went skiing and hiking. There were hot showers, comfy bunks and a pretty well equipped kitchen. There are a couple minor jobs that need doing e.g the doors. There were plenty of hooks and a good drying room. A soap dish in the shower would be useful .We found the hostel friendly ,cosy and... More

My wife and I booked a room to ourselves with our small.dog before Christmas 2014 for our trip to Newtonmore January 2015 . This booking was confirmed by Lauries by e mail. He subsequently rented the whole bunkhouse to large group meaning our previously booked room had gone to someone else. Not pleased I contacted him , he apologised and... More

A wee group of us (7) stumbled upon this wee gem on Hogmanay. The owner, Laurie, was really welcoming and friendly, telling us all we needed to know about the towns annual celebrations. We had an ace time with Scottish music at the local, torch procession, fireworks, impromptu ceilidh shortbread and stags breath. Hostel was warm, had everything you needed... More

Me and a friend booked in to stay here at the very last minute, New Year's eve to stay for five nights starting New Year's day. We were fitted in which was amazing. We spent our time winter mountaineering and found the hostel suited for this. A good drying room, kit space and lashings of hot water available all the... More

I booked this budget hostel last minute. I found the basic room very comfortable after a few days of wild camping in the Cairngorm mountains. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a nice couch and a TV in the livingroom area. The owners were very friendly. There's a supermarket nearby, so you can buy any food your heart... More

Stayed here during a road trip with my brothers - they had three beds available which was great as everywhere else was full! Very relaxed atmosphere and the owner Laurie (Lori?) made us feel very welcome (he even put the commonwealth games on for us). Beds were comfortable, and the living room was very home-like (I imagine it would be... More

I don't expect 5-star facilities from bunkhouse accommodation but have to agree with other reviewers that say this place is "awful" and "dreadful". The kitchen/dining area was filthy with the rest of the place not much better. It is an affront to Scottish hospitality that places like this are allowed to remain in business. The conditions might have just been... More

This hostel looks great on the web and in leaflets, and it probably was at some point in the past, and might be again in the future, but now it is simply dreadful. The place hasn't seen a coat of paint in years, the furniture is ancient, the bunks sway whenever anyone gets in or out, the mattresses are lumpy... More
