Hostel is about 3kilometers from the main road but it didn't feel that long to walk as the road is surrounded by beautiful nature. There are plenty of nice daywalks around the hostel. The staff was quite helpfull when asked about paths etc. Overall hostel is clean and nice, but a bit gloomy. I got the impression hostel is more... More

Thank goodness this hostel restored some of my faith in the Scottish Youth Hostels. The place is well set up with clean rooms and the mattresses go with covers on them albeit being a bit narrow. Helpful staff and the beer still over priced f a bottle which is a shame. Go there and you will be fine. Nothing major... More

We have stayed in hostels in many different countries. Others could learn well from the SYHA example of cleanliness we have experienced. Glencoe is no exception. It was very busy when we stayed so we had bunks in the separate male/female dorms. The kitchen is well equipped and the staff were great. There was secure storage for our bikes. In... More

Our room was for 4-- beds were comfortable, sheets clean and warm. Bathrooms were always clean (they close down the hostel daily in the afternoon for cleaning) Kitchen and eating area were GREAT! So much room and places to cook. There was also a quiet reading area to use if needed. Only complaints... WiFi was soooooo unpredictable (no biggie). But... More

I stayed here when walking the west highland way. It is about 2 miles from glencoe village so not ideal if you have no transport and need to get into the village. The clachaig is a 10 minute walk. Perfect for beer and food. The rooms were clean. The windows a bit old, but it was fine. The kitchen was... More

Stayed here for three nights in Jube 2016. Great youth hostel, with comfy rooms, decent breakfast and with very friendly and helpful staff who know the local walks. Good location a short walk from the inn. Access to the hostel by car from Clachaig Inn or from Glencoe village

This hostel is located well away from busy, noisy roads along a pretty tree-lined road beyond Glencoe village. It's not too far to the Clachaig Inn which has good pub food and atmosphere in the evenings. The hostel building itself is fairly basic but well maintained, with a car park that's not quite big enough if the hostel is full,... More

Amenities

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

The youth hostel is popular with walkers, climbers and families as it offers budget multi-share accommodation but also private family friendly rooms too.
