    I wish I’d had the time to stay much longer. Easily the best hostel I stayed in throughout my 3 week travel around the UK. The location is just exceptional with amenities close if you have a car. The beds are very comfy, rooms extremely spacious, secure place to put luggage with your own padlock, individual toilet and shower rooms, sink in the room, spacious common areas with a very practical kitchen with all the utensils you’d need and more. The free tea and coffee is a bonus as well!

    One of the best hostels I've been to. Very clean and well-kept facilities, beds quite comfortable. Very conveniently located next to Ben Nevis Mountain path start point. Only drawbacks are limited parking space and lack of public transport to the hostel - it's a very long walk in from Fort William's main town.

    This place was right by the Glen Navi’s trail. It was very lovely and the brekkie was good. We were close to a restaurant and we were able to get a really good night sleep. We were not there to hike but if we were It would have been the perfect hostel.

    It was perfect location for a day hike to Ben Nevis. Lovely atmosphere and staff in the hostel. Rooms are nice and clean. Only one thing, there wasn’t any wash liquid in the toilet. It really doesn’t matter if you’re carrying your own.
