Fort William is a wonderful home base to explore the highlands from and this is a great location within the town. Just don't expect anything more than a place to sleep, eat, and shower at.

This hostel is wonderfully located - very close to train and bus stations and just off the Main Street in the centre of the town. It is great to have a well stocked kitchen and a good sized room where people can eat, write and gather.

It was a perfect location and great for the price. Simple didn't have any bells or whistles but wasn't expecting any. The only thing I would suggest is bring some hooks. The ones with the suction cups. The showers have no hooks so you're trying to figure out how to make it work. If the facility would add even just one hook in the girls showers that would be awesome.

Staff, location, security, cleanliness of bedding all top notch. Staff were very accommodating to guests needs. Self-catering kitchen too small, and guests weren't attentive to cleanliness--this is a common problem, not just at this hostel. Shower areas need better dehumidification following showers. Parking area could become more of a challenge as cars that people drive are getting larger. Staff did everything they can, given the limitations of space they have in kitchens, bathrooms, etc.

Strong perks - the location, beds made for you and good showers. However, everything felt crammed. There was little space for cooking and the bedrooms were very tight.

Not the hostel vibe at all, just budget accomodation which is what it calls itself to be fair. Its fairly noisey with people coming in from clubbing and shouting in the corridors. The hallway is also pretty creaky. Staff were okay, just gave me the key really. There is a small kitchen which is good but the lounge area isn't somewhere I would want to hang out. Bed was fairly uncomfortable and it was hot when i went to bed but cold in the morning. Would only recomend as a last resort really!

Used the hostel as a base to ascend Nevis via Carn Mor Dearg Arête. It is perfectly located with free 'underground' parking or paid parking directly outside which is free 18.00-08.00. Staff were very friendly and willing to offer advic on things to do and see. Shower/bathrooms were dated with sink taps running virtually no water so brushing teeth and washing hands not so easy. No mention of a safe to store belongings. Rooms were basic but ok. Overall a good hostel.

The place is more like a cheap, run down hotel than hostel. Pros are it's a great location, near bus station, grocery store, etc, but still a quiet spot. The beds are clean and decently comfy (you even get a top sheet!), though narrow so you can't sit up on the bottom bunk. Not a ton of plugs, but ok. Kitchen is fine, but doesn't really have bowls, which is irritating. No lounge area, just some hard chairs and tables. Thin walls and really squeaky stairs make noisey nights. Ok, but not great.
