Lovely atmosphere, very friendly staff! Everything was very clean. The dorms had a cozy feel about them and there were plenty of sockets to charge your phone overnight. Only thing that I didn't like about my stay was that my bad creaked very loudly, so I felt a bit sorry for the other person in my dorm. The other beds did not seem to creak though! Located close enough the the bus and train station and shops are almost right outside the door.


Located in the centre of Fort William, right off the high street, cosy place, very nice and helpful staff. No complaints.


Room was clean but could have been more spacious. After arriving, there was a strong chips or old fat smell in the room which didn't really go away, even after opening the window. The kitchen is quite tiny for the size of the hostel and it could be better equipped, and so is the common room. The bathroom on the bottom floor didn't have a fan, after showering it felt like being in a steam bath. Location is great, 5 minutes to the train / coach station, supermarket is reachable in 2 minutes.


Hot water inconsistent at high demand times. Very little cutlery. Toaster needs repair/replaced.

Good facilities with kitchen and lounge area and wifi. Liked that the room was small, only four beds, meant my two companions and I had the room to ourselves. Clean place and nice warm shower! We only had one room key, not sure how that would have boded if we weren't together. Also kind of inconvenient sometimes.

I've been on many many hostels but never got such a good greeting as here. Alan, the man who checked us in was absolutely the beat guy ever and helped ua so much with out plans for fort williams and out travels. We only stayed one night but i would without doubt go back to this hostel if i'm ever in fort williams again. Great beds, great facilities. Go here, you won't regret it.
