Ahhh I loved this hostel! I ended up staying an extra night too! The staff were all really, really lovely and beautiful. Super clean, more of a family crowd I found but nevertheless a really good atmosphere. They have a huge kitchen where you can prepare and store your food or you can order dinner! No plugs in the bedroom but more than enough downstairs!


Great place good food and friendly stuff!


Thoroughly enjoyedy stay at the hostel. The facilities were great, especially the dry room (much required in Scotland) and the bike shed. The only problem I had was that there was no plug in my room. Beautiful place, I will be back again.

The hostel is in a really great location. In the middle of nowhere. I've just loved it. There is a lake next to it where you can swim (if you are brave enough, the water was reeeally cold!). Gary, the guy at the reception was really cool. He helped us a lot. Suggested some trekkings to do around and printed us a map. He is really easy going guy and really kind. Hope you enjoy your staying ;)
