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

This place is a gem - the warden (Thomas) is extremely helpful and friendly, and has a time for everyone. It has a great kitchen and a really cosy place. The hostel was clean, and in a great location.

We stayed as a family of 5 just before Christmas so the hostel was relatively quiet. It was warm, clean and well wardened, and well situated for the Glen Coe and Glen Nevis regions. Even though it rained fairly continuously while we were there, we were still able to do some star-gazing, as the sky is very dark. Meals were... More

Hello, Thanks for your post, we always make the small lounge available to our guests in the main season during the team's cleaning hours but during the winter we are on reduced staffing hours, so we only have the front porch available to guests if its raining, but I totally empathise with your comments and we are trying to find...

Great valley, fairly close to public transport, 15 mins from the pub, plenty of space. Weaknesses are the just adequate drying room (especially in a place where you are likely to get soaked) and the kitchen gas rings/oven not being switched on until 08:00 hours - far too late in winter to get a reasonable day's climbing in. Wardens very... More

Right in the heart of Glencoe and close to lots of walking and other outdoor activities, this hostel was a wonderful place to spend two nights. We had a private room with three beds, which was clean as could be. It had its own sink, but we shared a shower and toilet. The kitchen was spotless and the staff was... More

The location is quite far from bus stops (around 30-minute walk), however, there is a pedestrian trail to there. No shop around, so prepare your stuff carefully or buy it at Glencoe village. The Nisa grocery in this village opens 7 days. I stayed in a dorm for six people. The duvet cover, bed sheet and pillowcase are changed for... More
