Apart from a visit to Lake Garda, this is the best view we've ever had from our bedroom window. Great location but getting a little old and in need of a revamp I'm afraid. Spacious kitchen and lounge/eating area but little reading material to chose from. Warm and very homely. Great service and very clean. Prices a little high so... More

The views from this hostel are brilliant ! Literally on the banks of Loch Ness. I had room 5 so my view was directly over the loch. The staff member that checked me in was confused by simple questions and looked like a deer in headlights when asked. I had breakfast which was good but on my second day it... More

Spent one night here and it was clean and staff helpful and friendly. It backs onto a busy road and while double glazed, our room had a grate/vent thing on the external wall which made shutting the window pointless, and I only slept a few hours. Kitchen was large and clean, but the place desperately needs upgrading. There was one... More

We stayed there for one night just before heading to Ben Nevis. The receptionist was kind enough to wait for us as we were arriving just after midnight. The room was very well prepared and had all the necessary amenities. We could see the lake just outside of our window, which was very impressive. Overall, very happy with the stay... More

Very accessible by public transportation. Citylink buses stop there several times a day between Fort Williams and Inverness. Make sure to take food with you, although a few staples and canned goods are available for purchase. No wifi, but one computer with internet access for 3 pounds/hour. But, if you're staying there you are probably there to enjoy the location... More

Without a doubt the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in! Beautiful location overlooking Loch Ness with a huge common area to relax and meet other travelers. Perfect for relaxing and enjoying the outdoors! Additionally, the lady working at the hostel made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in... she was wonderful! Can't wait to return to Loch...

Loved this hostel, I can highly recommend, if you're looking for something basic but great value. The hostel is small, and looks a little shabby from the outside, but has clean, warm and comfortable rooms. We had two sockets in our room, so I guess this must be missing only in some rooms. The bathroom was shared but fine. We... More

If you like the YHA experience you will love this place. It is in a great location, right on the banks of the Loch. We had a private room (without toilet) and it was clean, neat and comfortable. We had two powerpoints in the room for charging the usual equipment everyone travels with these days. The toilet and shower were... More

We stayed in a private room here in May. The room was perfectly adequate and had a double bed on the bottom and a single bunk bed above it. There are no plug sockets in the rooms which was really strange. There was one socket in the hallway which people were using, but everyone else had to plug stuff into... More
