Staff were very accommodating- we were coming in on a late train to Fort William and the train arrived late so we missed the bus to Corpach, but the hostel gave us the number of a cab and waited up for us.

Loved my stay here. The staff was very friendly and amazingly accomadating happy to help you with whatever you need and went above and have a wealth of local information about hiking trails or whatever you need. The facilities were kept very clean and it was an excellent value for the money.

The Hostel is generally clean and friendly, but the shower plumbing wasn't very good, so water leaked into the downstairs area where there's electrical equipment.

There were 8 people in my room, no place to store, keep luggage, bathroom was dirty and mouldy all through, the kitchen was very small and congested with water dripping through the ceiling from the toilets and bath above, there was no ventilation in the bed room and it was badly lit. Overall an untidy, grimy and unpleasant place to stay. There is no chance that I would return or recommend it to anyone.

It was a 10 bedded room with only 1 toilet and shower (one room) and you could hear everything when anybody went to the toilet. Especially in a mixed ward, you need to have more "privacy spaces". Even if the toilet and shower were separate rooms it would help. There did not appear to be any toilets in the communal space either. Maybe as a result of space or as most of the other guests were not English speakers, there was not much atmosphere in the evening, but it was not a bad atmosphere.

We spent only one night there on the 16th of August and the room smelled like soaked socks, there were damp patches on the wall, the place was dirty and there was one small bathroom inside the room for 10 people, wich only make worse the smell and the noise. The recepcionist who welcome us was an old man very rude because there was a misunderstanding with how we wanted to pay (cash or card) and he clearly showed very little patience with us. The worst hostel I´ve ever been. Never come back

The owner was very nice, offer to get things from the convenient shop. 8 people sharing a toilet would be a problem and none in the common area. However the hostel is clean, proper kitchen facility although the other one stayed in oban provided oil and salt, some basic cooking ingredients. Lovely dinning area and sufficient parking space for guest.

Great hostel. Lovely view of Ben Nevis from the window. Signed a sheet the day before out climbing Ben Nevis and got back later than stipulated time - hostel staff informed the police to report me as a person of concern. Sorry for the incident!
