A really nice little hostel, not far from the waters edge. Really glad I stayed here and not inFort William as you get a much better view of Ben Nevis (UKs highest mountain) from Corpach. Nice little village, awesome, friendly staff. Would love to stay here again.

Owner was grumpy and rude, and most of the guests were senior citizens, which meant extreme snoring (someone actually moved their bed out into the hall it was so bad) and ignoring hostel etiquette, such as talking in the dorms at 1am or 5am or whenever they felt like it. Quite far out of Ft. William, you will need to take a bus. Overall, just not a very good experience, especially considering the price paid.

Cliff and Kristy were excellent and very entertaining hosts, they were able to share great Scottish tales. The eight bed dorm was pretty tight, but very decent for a one-night stay.

Nice location with good views of the mountains from the front (we had room on this side). Also only 10 min drive from Ben Nevis. Good base if your there on a walking weekend.

The hotel closes from 10 am til 4.30 so you feel like , you have to hurry every morning. But didn't feel very welcommed;. As soon as we have checked in ; the receptionist start to say a list of rules to respect. Not really nice atmosphere when you have spent a long day on the road to get there But overall everything is very clean; there is a nice lounge and bar ; and if you looking for just a room; i guess that's fine.

We've made sure we advertise everywhere we can to make people aware of our closure during the day. For us to make sure the place can be as clean as possible we ask guests to leave so we can achieve this instead of just clearing up after people as soon as they reuse what we have cleaned. We're not the only hostel that does this. As for the rest we can only say sorry you didn't feel very welcomed. All our staff enjoy meeting new guests on a daily basis. Two rules listed are actually Scottish law.

Be aware about you arrival time because it really matters to the staff. Terrible shower, freezing room.. they turned the heater off at night!

Well actually we like knowing the arrival time of our guests so we can make sure we're not in the middle of cooking or eating dinner and/or if it's a big group we make sure more than one member of staff is on-site. Heating is working fine, turning the radiator off at the wrong end doesn't help. 3 out of the 4 showers are new. If you had trouble asking for help goes a long way. We're always happy to help.
