Friendly, cosy bunkhouse with kitchen, dining room, sitting room and excellent drying room (very welcome if weather bad). Next door to "snack van" that does homemade ready meals and great venison burgers. (Well worth it especially as Old Forge pub has gone downhill and is often closed or unwelcoming)

An absolutely fantastic bunkhouse with all the facilities you could ask for. The lounge is especially lovely - very comfy sofas and a TV with lots of DVDs for evenings and bad weather days. Everything was incredibly clean and well looked after, and Fiona was very welcoming. I was worried that being in a room next to the kitchen would... More

I stayed as part of a large group who were on a hen party. Everything had been thought of and worked well. There were plenty of extras available via an honesty box system, e.g. towels which was very useful! Fantastic place stay and hope to return again one day!

One of the friendliest bunkhouses I have stayed in. It is a well thought out bunkhouse. Fiona was a star..... "Thank you Fiona" You obviously love your job. We arrived early to the bunkhouse where a busy Fiona took time to show us round the well equipped kitchen where she pointed out the free food shelf, the ovens, microwaves, boxes... More

A clean comfy bed in Dorm 1 next door to the extensively equipped kitchen and just opposite the large friendly lounge. Quality and cleanliness is superb; my one gripe is the suggestion that on one of the nights a dog was to be accommodated in the room. I react badly to most dogs and there was no problem in the...

The room we stayed in was very clean as was the rest of the building. I had just had a shower in what I thought was a very clean bathroom and found Fiona cleaning in there about 10 minutes later although the place already seemed spotless. Fiona was very friendly and chatted to us for about 10 minutes. There was... More

We arrived at the bunkhouse after being in the wild for a couple of days, we were soaked and tired! Had intended to camp but thought we'd have a quick look at the bunkhouse, Fiona was there to welcome us into the warm, cosy building and we immediately decided to stay (only £17pn). She showed us around, the lounge with... More

Fiona certainly has her role at the Bunkhouse for a reason! What an experience for you all, but clearly made bearable with a guest of the right profession and our lovely warden! Thank you for you comments - we will pass them on to Fiona. Hopefully you'll make it back to visit us again soon. More

I came with a group and we were able to secure a whole dorm to ourselves having booked ahead. The bunkhouse proved to be a comfy spot if a little worn at the edges. A cosy shared living room, clean showers and kitchen. Linens and towels are available for a slight fee. As with most hostels the experience probably varies... More
