No lockers in the room. No toilet and bathroom in the rooms, but very close access outside the room. Staff only available in morning and after 5pm.

Kitchen is great if you plan on cooking, dining area is huge and there's a nice lounge as well as an outdoor area. Only three showers for 36 people isn't great. I saw another review saying there were no lockers for your stuff. There's nowhere for your stuff, period. People with smaller bags shoved them under their beds but too bad if you've got a suitcase/big backpack or if you're in a top bunk. Tiny rooms, not secure at all.

Cozy hostel with an amazing view! The beds are a tad thin but comfortable enough. It is an older building so facilities are limited but the staff and people are very friendly. No lockers or safe room. Good for short stays.

This hostel is okay. The security is almost non existent though, it would be easy for anyone to just walk into this hostel. There are no lockers in the room and no place to lock up any valuables. Wifi worked well and everything was reasonably clean. Lots of great hang out space.

The hostel is just up a hill from everything you need in Fort William, and theres an entrance to the hills all around for some awesome walks. Didn't fully know who was staff and lots of the guests were kinda grumpy. I think the vibe was very relaxed and the beds were comfy. Would recommend.

Itţs a nice house from outside. But inside is tiny and has old and dirty furniture. The rooms are not so clean and they don't have enough showers and toilets. The staff (a guy who speak french) is not helpful. He don't make attention at the reservations and details and it's unfriendly. Also, the check-in hour is after 16.00, very late and you have to wait 30 minutes before the check-in. They hostel don't have a luggage room and at noon it's full of luggages in the lounge.

Reading the great reviews was looking forward to staying after a week camping &walking West Highland Way. Checkin the guy couldnt tell me where the official end to West Highland Way was or if any shops/restaurants open in town. Mattress on bed was so thin. I was hoping for a decent comfy bed. Unisex bathroom had two showers both dirty &no lockers in the room, nowhere to set belongings while in shower. Condescending manager, but got refund &left. First hostel walked out of in 15years hostelling!!
