    Such a beautiful little country town near a lake with plenty of hikes to do. This hostel is nice and close to shops, supermarkets, and restaurants. The kitchen is amazing, with all the utensils you need, and the hostel is super clean and the rooms and bathrooms are really nice. The staff was great and it just had a very homely feel. I recommend anyone stay who wants a relaxing night and is looking to do hikes or activities around the area.

    Absolutely enjoyed ourselves! The mattresses were comfortable, but the metal bunk beds did have a tendency to shake. The showers were nice and hot with great water pressure. Only thing we noticed was the outlets in our rooms (via the bunk beds) seemed to not work while the USB ports did

    Nice place to base yourself (with a car) for exploring the Loch Lomond national park. Cute place above a cafe. No lockers in the rooms was my only real issue.

    Great location but wondering whether the mattresses had been donated by the prison service. Woke up feeling assaulted by the springs

    Awful mattress that’s probably 30 years old with springs completely poking through. No heating in room made for a cold Autumn night. Door broken to en-suite bathroom, people could just walk in when you were showering. Blind covering window completely broken. Hot water randomly switched on and off, almost burnt myself from the scolding water. Metal wire lockers under bed has sharp edges. I completely cut my foot with it and have been left with a scar.Smelly room. Rubbish under beds.
