As a family we hadn't had much experience of hostels. Glad to say it turned out to be a good choice for us. The room for 5 (and when can you get THAT in a standard hotel?) was nice and spacious, with a large and clean ensuite bathroom, and the kitchen facilities were excellent and saved us a heap of...

The hostel is the real monster of the lake! All spaces are dirty and not well maintained. The room was spacious but not so clean. Noisy and very cold. At our arrival the cover on the bed was completely wet! The host was not so kind at our arrival, providing us with only minimum information (answering after question). Despite the... More

We were a group of 4 that showed up for our reservation however we were booked for 5 people. When my friend entered the office the proprietor said to him 'you know what your getting right'. Which immediately set off a signal, and then he insisted on cash payment. We had booked for 5 people, and the booking said the... More

Stayed at this hostel during a Glen Affric / Glen Cannich walking weekend. The twin accommodation that I'd booked for a single night was fine; we were two in a room that could sleep 5 (two bunks; one double bed, one single). The facility was nice -- kitchen / lounge in a separate building, an ensuite in our room, and... More

On its website, the BCC Loch Ness Hostel describes itself as a 'luxury, top quality hostel with superb facilities'. Whoever wrote this was clearly deranged. I'll start at the beginning. The day of our visit, we called to ask when we could check in and were told 'anytime'. Needless to say when we arrived at 2pm our room wasn't ready... More

A lovely location with all home comforts. The log cabin was warm even in the winter and it was peaceful and relaxing in the evening. The staff were helpful and the whole establishment was clean and tidy:) close to all the necessities such as pub, town and loch ness! Would definitely recommend.

Comfortable cabin, wonderful environment. Peaceful. There was a little stream right next to our bedroom window, best nights sleep I've had in ages. Very good bathroom, too. Fancy new shower. I wouldn't try to get here without a car, though!

We visited this place for one night on 26 September 2015. We were a group of four colleagues, three guys and a lady and had booked two separate ensuite rooms (one triple ensuite and one single ensuite) via hostelbookers.com about 3-4 days before the travel. We made a 12% down payment. The website specifically said that it was a down... More

We booked this hostel for an overnight stay on our way to Inverness. The room and shower were warm and a good size for a family of four. There is also a comfortable common/dining room and WiFi. What let the hostel down was the kitchen area, which shows signs of wear and tear. At breakfast the cereals were stale, which... More
