Property Information:

Looking for adventure? Want to experience the very best of the Scottish Highlands, Glen Nevis Youth Hostel is the ideal place to stay.

Glen Nevis Youth Hostel is the largest and longest established youth hostel in the Glen Nevis/Fort William area. Hosting hill walkers, climbers and backpackers at the foot of Britain's highest mountain since 1933, it has a proven track record of providing quality budget accommodation for individuals, families and groups wishing to visit the Lochaber area.

The youth hostel has a kitchen and lounge to relax in as well as a boot and drying room for wet weather gear.

The youth hostel offers full catering for those who prefer to take the hassle out of getting a meal ready after a long day on the hills and also has a great selection of beers and wines.

With spacious bathrooms, accommodation for groups, families and independent travellers from around the world, Glen Nevis Youth Hostel is never without a great atmosphere and you are sure to make a friend or two.

We can also advise on and book local guides as well as recommend some of the best in out door pursuits available in the Lochaber area.

From sea kayaking to downhill mountain biking and late night Celidths on the Nevis Range, Fort William and the wider Lochaber area is a very difficult place to become bored of very quickly.

*We now offer Free Wi-Fi/ Internet access.

    + The location is great, though a little bit hard to get there. Buses from the city only leave at 16:55 or so. + The dining room is great. Kitchen is very nice. + The staff was also very kind, but - I felt there were few working there, and they were pretty busy most of the time. - No plugs in the rooms. - Ovens turn themselves off every couple of minutes. - Wi-fi didn't work for over a day.
