“Money well spent - every time”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

Staying at Bank Street Lodge was not the first time for us. So much so that this year was out third stay there!! Ken and his staff makes us feel at home although we come all the way from Malta!! Rooms are clean with ample space to move around and includes ensuite facilities. Day and night staff were always cordial and my wife got on very well with Katy, Laura and Toty!! The fact that Bank Street Lodge is very close to the bus and train stations and well served with bus service makes you more mobile to wander smoe kilometers away!! Indeed, we do recommand Bank Street Lodge and we promise to come and stay when we are around!!

Spent one night here with my husband and 9 year old daughter,we were given a family room,which consisted of a double bed and a single bed,tv with freeview,kettle with tea/coffee etc and we had our own private shower/bathroom.
Room was slightly dated,but,bed linen was clean and fresh,room was warm and there was plenty of hot water,there were a lot of rooms here but it was very quiet,had a great view as well.Perfect location for exploring the town and only two minutes from the railway station.Staff were all very nice,and if it's just a base you require to rest your tired bones then i would absolutely recommend The Bank Street Lodge.

I wasn't expecting much for the price, but it turns out that this is not a bad place at all. The rooms are clean and comfortable equipped with tv and a decent bathroom. There is no breakfast or dinner here, but there is a kitchen to make you're own stuff. I didn't bother, as it was the last night of the West highland Way and i was catching the early train. It's smack bang in the middle of town where the are plenty of restaurants. Its a great place and considering the price, its astounding value.

Stayed there with my friend for two nights in 6-bed male dorm. The location is very good - stores are nearby, rail and bus station is at 10-min walking distance. The place was clean. Shower room ok, hot water available. Extra things like towel, toothbrush etc. are available for a small fee. Only the kitchen and eating/resting room were rather small, could have been bigger for such a hostel. Recommended for budget travelers.

Myself and 4 friends were booked in here on a walking weekend.We had spent 10 hours climbing Ben Nevis and this was our refuge on the Saturday night.We arrived very tired and ready for a hot shower at 7:15pm.The check in was friendly,quick and efficient and first impressions of the place were good. The location of the lodge is perfect as its in the town centre. Rooms were very nice,basic but very clean,nice clean bathroom and towels and soap supplied.Bed was comfortable too, had a good nights sleep...great value for the money.

I would definitely return when our walking takes us back up north. I have stayed in worse hotels and payed good money for it. A cracking wee lodge!!

Room Tip: The rooms to the rear of the property would be quieter,though noise not a big issue.

I stayed here for one night with my brother and a friend in august. I booked by phone just two hours before my arrival, and the staff has proved friendliest. We had a triple room, with a bathroom just in front of the room. The room and the bathroom were clean. And the hostel is very closed to center town. A really nice place!!
