    It's a hostel, so it as secure as those go with other guests staying in the room as well. It is quite secluded so probably can only go there by car, but other than that it is perfect. It's in the middle of nature with a waterfall and hiking paths nearby, there's also a lodge just up the road for food, and the owners/managers are super friendly. The facilities were great and everything is nice, clean and orderly. Would recommend if you're looking for a getaway far from the buzz of the city.

    Lovely little out-of-the-way place to stay, ideal if you have a car. We stayed as a stop-off on our way up to the highlands, we were almost sad to only be staying for one night! My only complaint is that I still have no idea how to pronounce the name - everything else, perfect!

    Clean rooms with linen included and nice showers with space to get changed. Nice to have the key to the dorm room too. Great kitchen if you want to cook.

    Group of 4 of us stayed here after a week of canoeing nearby. We were greeted so nicely and shown our rooms quickly and allowed to get settled. The showers are small but warm and had a decent pressure so we felt clean after a week wild camping. It's a 15/20 minute drive into Fort William so food wasn't a problem, although the kitchen was good for coffee in the morning. Perfect for us to rest and relax after a week on the water, thank you!

    Very Good

    22 Jul 2019
    This hostel is pretty good. The location is pretty out of the way, would want a car for sure. It was quite dirty and smelly, the toilets and showers get very wet and never really dry so in winter it could be pretty cold and wet! Great kitchen with lots of tables which makes it easy to meet people though.

    Room was dirty, filthy and small, not to mention that room had emergency exit for the facility and needed to be unlocked.
