It was just that bit further away from Ben Nevis than I had hoped.

Very friendly and pleasant hostel near canal and Neptune's Staircase. Wifi is not included (you can pay extra for 18 hours) which I found a problem, since it is not near the town and bus info, directions, maps, etcetera are online. Beautiful area to visit.

First time staying in a hostel and wasn't disappointed. Henry was very friendly and helpful. Nice comfy rooms and great storage for bikes.

This place needs to get its act together. It was still as fly-blown last weekend as it was last time I stayed, two years ago. Plus something now seems to have gone wrong with the plumbing - the loft-cistern is adjacent to dorm 4, and goes off like a steam-hammer every time somebody runs water. Sleep was hard to come by. I thought this was poor value for £20 per night, especially with a bathroom out of order, leaving only two loos to serve a full 42-bed hostel

Thanks for your feedback re the plumbing. We do have more than two WCs you know... but as for the knocking, we think this was due to an air-lock in the pipes?? Chase that wild goose....!

Perfect for backpackers. Best value for money. Clean bathrooms/toilets (plenty there so no problem of queuing up) with hot water. A posh looking hotel next to this has a good restaurant and a bar so don't need to go far for breakfast/ dinner.

Overall the stay and service from the staff was great, especially from the young lady who booked us in on our arrival. She was able to advise on local pubs, shops etc within walking distance from the hostel. However the microwave and toaster/grill in the kitchen where not very efficient and could do with replacing. Apart from that the hostel was great value for money!!

Ideal location for our stay. Car park space a bit limited though.

Absolutely awesome hostel. Staff is soo nice. Nice big kitchen. Only cons os that you have to pay for wifi and it only really works on the common room... Whoch is really nice and cozy. Also be aware that it is not in Fort Williams... So bring your food / beer/ whathave you. But really comfortable and beautiful setting.
