    The most welcoming and friendly staff, lovely large, clean dorm room and great facilities in the kitchen and communal areas. The lovely girl who welcomed us gave us some great tips on where to explore and I would highly recommend anyone exploring that area of Scotland to stay at this hostel! Thank you!

    Loved my stay at Crianlarich Youth Hostel. The staff were warm and welcoming and gave me fantastic recommendations for hikes in the area. They took the time to look over maps with me and even lent me some maps other travelers left behind. The hostel is very clean and in a beautiful remote area with trail walks to beautiful mountain views directly from the property. It's also very close to the train station and local grocery store, making it a very convenient stay. Would come back!

    What a nice getaway! This place is in the middle of nowhere- which is exactly why I was so eager to go. Surrounded by the Scottish highlands, it was a nice place to both relax and invigorate (with plenty of opportunities to hike and a knowledgeable staff that will point you on the right path). It is secluded, so don't expect much in terms of nightlife or even restaurants- in fact, there was only one within a 15 min walk. Even so, well worth the stay- the staff were very welcoming :)

    Very nice hostel. Located just fine in a wonderful area. The staff was super helpful with things to do : hiking paths away from the crowds and up to our abilities and places worth a visit, and not to do like touristy places which we could avoid. There's a small grocery shop 5min from the hostel and they have some emergency supplies as well. It's on the West Highland Way and you can tell by the friendliness of everyone from staff to hosts and the easy chat you can fall in in a matter of seconds.

    Standard Scottish youth hostel. Well located for walking. It’s a shame the kitchen has been downsized, but it’s still fine.
