It was really wonderful! The beds were comfortable and I met a lot of people here. Also the location was very near to cow hill summit. The staff were helpful like where you can go. I love the free hot chocolate haha!! The wifi is a bit slow on the lounge area but in the kitchen it's faster. One thing I didn't like was the directions were difficult to understand? Or maybe it was just me haha! But I really recommend this place! It's also cheap :)

One night became 3 great nights at Fort William Backpackers! The very friendly staff, the setting and the other guests made up a lovely and homey atmosphere. Wish I could have stayed longer.

One of my favourite hostels I've stayed in, my only thing would be that I would have liked a locker in the dorm room. Staff were very friendly, lovely hostel with everything you require and best of all close to the hills.

The staff, specifically Ruthie and Andy, were super friendly and helpful. Was a decent hostel with a very cosy chill out room with a fireplace. Would stay here again.a

Great cosy hostel with a warm fireplace, comfortable beds (two pillows!) and very friendly staff. The only problem I had was with the showers where there was no hot water in the evening after a long day's hike. Other than that it was top notch.

This is a perfect place to stay if you are looking for the Highland experience. The atmosphere here is so cozy and comfortable and the staff are awesome. Make sure to ask Ruthie to share some highland folklore and songs when you're hanging out by the fire in the living room. I would definitely recommend this place and would stay again in a heartbeat!
