Hostel was still quite "far" from the loch itself, however it was within walking distance. Also same thing with shops. We had a private room, which was good value. Seemed like there were (almost) no other guests, so atmosphere was ...eh... Haha. Glad I wasn't travelling alone :)


Great little hostel in the middle of Drumnadrochit and a 20 min walk from Urquhart Castle. We arrived after their closing hours and the staff were gracious enough to check us into a room even though the room we had booked was not going to be suitable for us. She even had some great suggestions about where to visit in the area.


This hostel is in the middle of everything, it's only 1 mile in either direction to the castle or the falls. The location also makes it easy to he to a market or rent a boat to go out on the loch. The friendly staff also makes for an enjoyable night. They have a bar that opens in the lounge area and during my stay everyone there engage in conversation, so it was easy to socialize and meet new people. The hostel only starts checkin after 5 pm so store your bags and head out on a trail till then.


Very friendly atmosphere in a cosy hostel relatively close to Loch Ness.
