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

This hostel is the most shabby, delipidated, unclean I have ever been in, the rest of the party I was with could not spend another night there, ashamed it is offering accomodation in Scotland.

The website for the hostel is completely misleading as this place doesn't deserve any stars and actually should be shut down by EHO. We ended up being allocated to the small 'bothy' behind the main hostel, as he didn't open up the hostel for just a few people (we had seen the hostel though when we arrived and it's no... More

3 males and a couple booked in for 1 night on a motorcycling trip. The owner said that he would be away when we arrived so he would leave the key under a stone near the door. The accomodation was a small cottage behind the main hostel and to say it was rough would be an understatement. It needs a... More

This is a complex story. We booked into the hostel, which all accounts is three star and looks quite impressive on the website and from the physical exterior. The only problem came with the fact that we were not located in the hostel. Due to a double booking we were located into a cottage to the rear of the hostel.... More
