Great place to stay, very calm and cozy. Great staff that are welcoming and there is a very wonderful atmosphere and fire place to hang out around in the common area. I really enjoyed my stay here, and so did my two friends with me. Good kitchen to make food in. The wifi was weak but you got good signal in the dining room area.

Toilet and shower facilities were a little basic and could have done with an upgrade but everything else was good

We were upgraded to a twin private for no extra cost. A really lovely hostel in a top location overlooking the town of Fort William. Staff were friendly and it had a really nice and cosy atmosphere. Highly recommend it.

Location isn't the best, but Fort William isn't big so it's a relatively easy walk into the centre. Fantastic staff however, so helpful with planning the rest of my trip. Good value hostel overall.

We have been to many cheaper hostels so far and this was one with the worst service. The hostel is very nice, clean and greatly located but the staff we encountered was not very willing to help. There were no lockers, we had to leave our baggage in the corridor when we went for last hike to Ben Nevis (on the check-out day). When we came back from 7-hour trip we were refused to have a quick shower before we left, even though there were no clients taking shower at that time.

This is such a wonderful hostel! The beds are comfy, the atmosphere is laid back and social, and it's in a great location (less than a 10 minute walk from the train station). The staff is also super friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend staying here!

This is a great hostel right of off the main road, not far from central Ft. William. Everything very comfortable and clean. Great value.

Near to the city centre, nice staff. Small rooms with no lockers, but clean and tidy. Lovely dayroom with a real fire and friendly atmosphere. Wifi working only in the dining room (open until 11:30 pm). A nice breakfast is available for only 2 pounds.

A lovely house with beautiful views. Good hostel environment. Frustrating things: the wifi only worked in the kitchen and in one of the rooms - not in the common space. Also, the staff aren't present from 12pm-5pm, which makes checking in in the afternoon difficult.

Good location! The dorm room was very spacious, however I felt uncomfortable having the permanent resident couple staying in our dorm sharing a single bed, also the snoring made for interruptive sleep. The girl at reception was friendly, while the rest of the staff working didn't seem to aknowledge you. The wifi worked well but only in the dining area, which got crowded. The kitchen could be cleaner. More bathrooms would be better and breakfast should be included for the price.

Great hostel, the atmosphere here can't be beat. Great kitchen, lounge, and even a little private Skype/sun room. Staff was good, room was spacious and had a great view. The location is beautiful - on abit of a hill but the view is worth the climb! Only a short walk from the train station. The only downsides: no lockers in the room (though i felt totally safe leaving my bag), check in times are a bit awkward (before 12:30 or after 5pm). Would definitely recommend.

. Loved the facilities, but top floor sink could do with a fixing as water doesn't drain as normal, and maybe finding a dry place to change when other people are around, but that's being a bit fussy) . very comfy beds . not enough plugs though . great spaces ( quiet room, Skype room, kitchen, outside fire place, and the size of that lounge! wow )
