We stayed there for one night, we had a private room which was clean and comfortable. Staff on reception was super helpful and friendly. All facilities available and meeting everybody's needs. Great starting point for hikes. Would definitely stay there again.

Stayed at the youth hostel for five nights and found it a very comfortable place to stay. There is also a very good drying room, a necessity in this part of the world. The kitchen is well laid out and spacious. Even when fully booked, the hostel never felt crowded and there was always space in the kitchen and dining... More

We stayed at the Youth Hostel for 2 nights in July while exploring Torridon and Gairloch. We were greeted by a very friendly and accommodating warden and found our room comfortable (we paid extra for a private room which had 5 bunks), good beds and very clean. The facilities are excellent with a very well equipped kitchen, common rooms and... More

It's... Okay. The site is basic and very boggy (camp on the edge the middle is water logged currently) the toilets and showers are okay but the girls shower was out of order and boys doesn't have a lockable door. Personally I will wild camp next time with a place that has views not a main road next to it.

We recently stayed in this youth hostel after doing the North Coast 500. We were greeted on arrival and then left to find our rooms. The rooms were small and beds were uncomfortable. Showers were not great, there were no cubicles to get dried and changed after wards, your just left standing in the middle of the bathroom! All facilities... More

What a brilliant hostel. We stayed here on a climbing/hiking trip and couldn't have been happier with the accommodation. The Hostel staff are really friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The hostel itself was clean, spacious and had a huge fully kitted out kitchen. The dorms are exactly how you would expect them. They also have a drying room for... More

Fantastic location and perfect for training with no distractions, apart from the stunning views of mountains, glens and sea loch. The manager could not be more helpful and has a wealth of knowledge about the area. Very clean and well managed.

We stayed here for two nights in October. I'm not usually that keen on hostels but this was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Matt (the warden we met) was really friendly and helpful. Due to a delayed flight we were due to arrive 15 minutes after the last check in time and phoned through to the hostel to explain. Matt... More

The hostel is in a fantastic location with views from every window. Staff are on the ball, efficient and friendly with good sense of humour. The place is immaculately clean and the kitchen is the best laid out I've come across with 4 sinks, 3 cooker spaces and lots of room for food storage.

Outstanding purpose-built (1970s) SYHA hostel in a stunning setting at the foot of one of the largest of the Torridon mountains. Parking on-site. Staff efficient, friendly and welcoming. Building is well maintained and decorated. Dorms spacious and comfortable. Modern toilets and showers. Large guest kitchen well equipped. Large comfy lounges. Shop nearby in village. Pleasant stay. Recommended.
