we had a very good stay, the bunkhouse was clean and tidy, well equipped kitchen - just needed a few more plates. Access to washer and dryer, which was fantastic as i was travelling with 4 chilldren. The owners were friendly and helpful

We stayed 2 nights here and had a very good stay. There is a BBQ that is free to use and supermarket is not far away. It is a great location for climbing the north face of Ben Nevis but it is a bit far from town if you don't have a car. There is a small co-op 5min walk away but a much larger supermarket in the next village. People were staying in other parts of the house but we had 3 showers, 2 toilets and the entire downstairs to ourselves. The lady at the hostel was very friendly


Great place to stay. The staff are lovely. Would recommend this hostel to everyone.


It's an amazing place. Located in Corpach which is just beside the rail station and only 10 mins from Fort William by train. The view outside the house is wonderful, especially during the night. Big kitchen, lovely dinning room and garden. Big surprise. Excellent staff. Highly recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Definitely gonna come back(actually we are planning to come back when we saw it!!!!!!!!!!!!!).


Simply fantastic
