    Sean the desk clerk was very friendly, upbeat, and went above and beyond. He helped us do our laundry, made us feel very welcome, and answered all of our questions. Blair the manager kept a tidy and comfortable lounge and dining room. This was the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed at, and I've stayed at hostels in 7 countries. It was extremely well equipped with complimentary coffee and tea, hot showers, and even a sink in our room. Thanks for the great stay, we will be back!

    Really enjoyed our stay. Great location for the hills we had planned. Friendly , helpful staff. We had an en-suite room , spotless and perfect for our needs. Due to covid the kitchens weren't fully available for use but we had what we needed, unlimited boiling water, tea bags , coffee etc. Will definitely use again!

    This was my second time staying here and I would absolutely come back. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, taking the time to ask you where you’ve been and where you’re headed. The facilities are clean and there is a nice lounge area. Perfect stop if you’re hiking along the West Highland Way, but there are short little day hikes with great views accessible from the hostel.

    We had a lovely stay at the Crianlarich Youth Hostel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the drying room was brilliant as we arrived soaked and the kitchen, dining room and common room were perfect. It is however, a very long - and in the rain somewhat treacherous - walk from Rowardennan to Crianlarich.
