Stayed 1 night in this lovely hostel with 4 other friends in a 5-bed bunk. I have to say its really rare to have a 5-bed bunk nowadays and the number just fit nicely. The staff was friendly and helpful in assisting us with our check in. He even offered to stayed after opening hours for reception for another guest that might be coming in late. Good service.
The room was just about right for 5 grown adults and it was nice and clean. We took the 5-bed room which was right at the top. I was expecting it to be dusty especially when we checked in really late, but there wasn't the case.
Two commendable points of this hostel was the toilets and the kitchen. There plenty of toilets (at least 4) in the 2nd floor and it was more than sufficient for a hostel this size. It was well maintained, the heat was working well and I had absolutely no complains. 5 of us could clean up in quick time and simply waste no time. I found out about how good the kitchen is only in the morning. Everything was neatly place and the variation of utensils and crockery available was fantastic. The kitchen was spacious and could easily handled more than 2-3 groups cooking.
The only complain about this place is the location. Its not as near to the city center of Fort WIlliam (at least a 5-10 mins drive, not walking distance) as I would like it to be. So it can be a little inconvenient. Still its a great hostel and I would gladly stay there again.
