    Excellent Hostel. Good facilities, good hospitality, good location. In the interest of improvement only, wifi was available in the lounge and if wifi could be extended to the kitchen this would be even better.

    Good facilities specially the drying room which helped a lot after a rainy day. They had enough space to park multiple cars. Friendly hosts, had a good stay.

    This was a wonderful hostel to stay at near Ft William. Everything was great. The kitchen is well equipped, the bathrooms were clean and showers all worked well with great hot water, the rooms were comfortable and clean with the beds made for us in advance. The equipment drying room was a lifesaver. We didn’t use the sauna but it would have been great after a cold rainy hike. There are no lockers, but the rooms lock and the owners are always around and keep a close eye on things.

    After a long days motorcycle ride up from Staffordshire the Hostel was a welcome stop off to Adventure into the Cairngorms & Isles of Skye the following day. Everything was as I anticipated, quiet natures setting, cosy bedroom hot shower. Good drying room. Would use again & recommend. Big thumbs up.

    For the price, you really can’t go wrong with this place. Perfect for an alternative to staying in Fort Williams as it is only a short drive.

    On a chilly and very wet day we really appreciated having the radiator on in the common room, where we were able to access WiFi to further plan our trip, although as expressed by the manager the internet was slow.

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