The place was great...it is an older house/hotel refitted as a youth hostel (shows its age) though in great condition, couple of brand new bathrooms...the beds were very comfortable and clean/comfortable sheets...wifi and breakfast not free (should be for the price)...incredible staff!! Location is perfect for hikers and climbers with Ben Nevis and the Cadelonia Canal (Neptunes Staircase) right across the street...


This hostel is nice. But keep in mind that you have to pay for the breakfast, the lockers, the wi-fi. Otherwise it's a good place to stay! We just had a little issue... A familly of 12 arrived around 23:00 and they cooked diner, they opened every light in the dorms and a baby cried until 1 am.

Many thanks for your review. We are sorry your stay was marred by a difficult family upsetting the peace after 11.00pm. Unfortunately they 'smuggled' in a baby (we don't accept children under 5 years) so after midnight we didn't have the heart to ask them to leave. Thank you for your very kind understanding.
