Facility is difficult to reach. The showers smelled like urine and ammonia. Rooms were tiny and dirty.

A great little place just north of Fort William. The rooms are basic but adequate. Bring an extension lead with you as the only power points are on the corridor outside the rooms. The kitchen facilities are good with everything you need to cook a good meal. The staff are friendly and easy to deal with. If you are using Roy Bridge as a base to visit Fort William then a car or other means of transport is essential. Overall great value for money.


Noisy Germans next door who kept banging their room door at 6am when going in and out. Potential to make the doors "non-springy"!?? Showers in the gents were "interesting". Two showers next to each other, without any partition! Strange... Also, no plug sockets in rooms to charge phones, etc. However! Good/ basic digs for any hill-goer. Cannae grumble at £12.50 per night for a well-stocked kitchen, warm showers (just get in there before anyone else!), good pub, clean sheets. Camping costs more!

The place is far from Fort William (25km). The room was no more than 6m2 for 2 and not quite clean. The shared bathrooms were not clean at all, and don't even have private boxes to take a shower! The bar was a bit creepy as well, with sticky tables, although the food was cheap and ok. It's probably the cheapest place of the region, but i would not recomment this hostel.

Stay away, bathrooms extremely dirty and badly equipped, kitchen old and dirty, no electricity on the second day. Beds uncomfortable. Better sleep under the bridge!


It's very cheap but that doesn't mean the hostel shouldn't be cleaned. It was very dirty, a lot of the lights aren't working and there are no plug sockets in any of the rooms! It means you have to charge your phone in the hall whilst standing guard to ensure no one steals it. Not very practical at all. The showers were disgusting, as were the bathrooms and kitchen. Also it states it's in Fort William but it's not, it's a 15 minute drive to Fort William.


Dirty. They seriously need to get a grip on the muck and mess in the hostel rooms, especially cleaning under the beds. Arachnophobes watch out! We had to sleep in our car- terrible.


The staff was really kind to us. But the hostel.. well, the room was pretty dirty, had some dirty spots on the floor and the bunk beds were all written with a pen. The shower.. one of them was broken, the other one worked well, but the bathroom in general was dirty as well. The location wasn't to bad, it was sourrended by trees and that it was nice. Nothing else...


Very nice location with great views, close to beautifull places of Isle of Sky. Definitely happy with hostel staff and services.


Awful experience! Even if it is announced as a fort william hostel, it is actually locasted 20 miles away. The hostel was VERY dirty and one of the beds was broken. I found an orange under my matrass, the scent of the livingroom was horrible and the bathrooms were filthy. I totally advise you against gpoiung there


A welcome warm shower, comfortable bed, quiet outlook on lawn, good drying faciities. Brilliant location in Glen Spean for hillwalking and enjoying the Highlands.

The rooms with a very narrow size, neither chair, neither cupboard did not fit. A smell was very bad in the rooms, the bed linen was not rather clear. The place not friendly, unattractive.


The room itself was fine for the price but we really could've done with plug sockets in the room. The doors, corridors and beds were also really noisy so we didn't sleep too well. Apart from that, the kitchen facilities were good and the bar was nice. Thanks.


Had a good kitchen to use with fantastic view of the mountains. Other than that was pretty average, no major criticisms or compliments.
