Its located almost in isolation (not in a town or next to any attraction), but because we rented a car, the 15-min drive from the Loch Ness Centre and Exhibition did not bother us.
Room / common area
The room totally makes up its distance from the town. We paid 20 GBP per person per night, and we got a superb room – 4 beds, a small living room with sofa & TV, spacious toilet with bathtub. This was really unexpected. I felt as if I cheated to get such a huge room at such a low price!
The common dining area was huge with sufficient space to lounge and use the internet (there's only internet in the common area but its fast enough to do videos on Skype). The kitchen was also a marvel – huge and spotless. Very rare for a hostel. Thumbs up to the staff.
The hostel is run by a nice man who makes you feel welcomed when staying at the hostel. He brings you around the hostel and explains things to you; most other hostels just let you figure them out yourself unless you ask them. Perhaps this is what they call Scottish hospitality! :)
Overall, a super value-for-money hostel, with great rooms and common areas. Definitely choose this if you drive!
