Wonderful hostel. The SYHA hostels are always very well run. Clean, spacious, with everything you would expect from a hostel. Always a fantastic place to visit, and meet fellow hikers. I have stayed here a few times now and are never disappointed. Double thumbs up from me.

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.

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Glencoe Youth Hostel is ideally located away from the main A82 in the quiet countryside of Glencoe, surrounded by fields and trees with stunning view of the hills. The youth hostel is popular with walkers, climbers and families as it offers budget multi-share accommodation but also private family friendly rooms too. Glencoe Youth Hostel has a large open plan kitchen/ dining room with ample cooking facilities and dining tables. According to one of our customers, Glencoe Youth Hostel has one of the best drying rooms in the Scottish Highlands! Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding ... more   less
