    Fantastic location and facilities, everything you need for hiking, skiing etc in the heat of Glen Nevis. Location is perfect - straight across the road from the trail to Ben Nevis. Spotlessly clean spacious dorms, great bathrooms and kitchen, staff were really helpful, lots of info available on hiking.

    I was positively surprised. The place sits literally on the bottom of Ben Nevis, with an amazing view. The staff is super friendly and helpful, breakfast is a good value for money and has a good selection. The dorms are spacious, clean and tidy. Loved it.

    This is a lovely newly renovated hostel with great facilities. We did have a problem with our room not been ready and cleaned following the previous people however this was quickly resolved by Jamie the staff member on that evening who showed excellent customer service and we were offered drinks while we waited and breakfast the next day. All staff were very professional, polite and welcoming. We would definitely stay again.

    Amenities are very basic, but the facility is clean. Staff is friendly. Location is just a short walk to Smoo Cave and to a beautiful beach landscape.

    Very nice facilities in every regard. Greatly appreciated being allowed to use some of the facilities the day before my reservation was active due to a scheduling glitch. The staff were very friendly and the kitchen facilities superb. Best hostel I stayed in over 5 weeks.

    The staff were lovely and so helpful especially as we arrived tired from a day in the hills. The private twin room was clean and tidy, with a good shower. Kitchen amazing. Wish we'd stayed a second night. To get 10/10 the price just needed to be a wee bit lower.

    Everything was fine with this wonderful hostel, except after midnight there’s a person came back to the room and went to bed with smelly feet. I was awakened by this foul smell and had hard time to fall in sleep again.

    Excellent hostel. More pricey, but you get what you pay for. It's sparkling clean, new looking, and has lockers and power outlets by each bunk, which isn't the case for many hostels in Scotland. Staff are very friendly and helpful, and you can walk to the Ben Nevis trail directly from the hostel. Great stay.
