Great place to meet other hiker and outdoor enthusiasts. The decoration was great and the atmosphere was awesome as you were living with all other outdoor lovers. Love the lounge with huge glass window looking out to the city as Fort William is a very lovely place with great views. Facilities were great. The kitchen was clean and even had free coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and milk. There were also a lot of information on tours and activities to do in Fort William

The place has lots of charm but the hostel needs alot of tlc. The first in the lounge is ideal when it is pouring outside. The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable of the area. However I was glad to be visiting out of season as i am sure it can be hard to use the three showers with lots of people staying.

CONS: Arrogant, rude staff. Tiny kitchen/common rm, rarely available due to staff hogging. NO LOCKERS! No space under bed for belongings. Limited space in room w/out blocking dorm mates. Bed=Flimsy foam on wood. Wifi=worst in 5 months! Tiny, mixed gender showers w. no place for belongings. Staff leave windows in your rm open all day in dead of winter. The "VIEW" = the SUBURBS. Hostel at the top of a hill, far away from "nightlife" (pubs). PROS: A place to stay. Leaving. Downhill to the station.

Nice location. Close to train station. Staff are very nice. Comfortable beds. Found some stain on the the sheets but overall bed is clean. Bathroom is quite small but facilities are fine and functional. It is shared by male and female guests, which can be a little uncomfortable at times, especially in the morning when the bathroom is so crowded. Overall a nice place for its price.

Hi Zhirong, Thanks a lot for your review, I am glad you enjoyed your time with us! Unfortunately we do not have enough bathrooms to separate males and females. Please call again if you come by Fort William in the future! Romain
