The staff were awesome! So welcoming and kind! The location is absolutely beautiful! Beds are a bit squeaky and can keep you up if you are a light sleeper. They have a great guest kitchen, so I would recommend bringing some groceries with you. Also inconvience is that they shut down parts of the hostel for cleaning, and we had to wait over two hours to access our rooms. Other than that it was a great few days and we would happily return!

Fantastic location, friendly staff, everything you need. Only problem is it doesn't open until 5pm, so not possible to come early and leave bags

Absolutly beautiful location. The bus stops right outside the door. Rooms and all facilities were insanely clean. The only thing missing in the kitchen was som basic Spice like salt and pepper. The internet isn't great, but that doesn't matter because you will want to be outside alle the time anyways :D A great place to stay!

Nice hostel with a welcoming and homey atmosphere. The showers could use a little bit of updating or fixing. Loved the location!

Ideal location near Loch Morlich and starting point of multiple walking trails. Bus stop is right in front of the lodge. The staff is very welcoming and helpful. Clean spaces. Spacious and fully equipped kitchen. Beware that there are no locker to keep your valuable belongings.

Highly recommend if you want a good base pre or post adventure in the Gorms. Hostel clean and facilities are well equipped. Camp shop close by also which is always handy if you are inclined to cook your own food and not pay for hostel meals. All of that topped by very welcoming and sociable staff.

All of the staff was friendly and check in/out was essy. The hot breakfast available was hearty and tasty. The room was a disappointment. There wasn't a single outlet in the room. Charging was available in the main lobby. They said this was typical for all their second floor rooms. No lights by the bed so need people coming in later had to flip on the overhead. A single toilet on the entire second floor though there were four showers. For hiking and being in nature, it was a lovely location.
