    It's been a long time since I have hostelled and this has given me the old bug back. Great staff, great rooms and such amazing value for money. Thank you to the staff at Glencoe Youth Hostel for looking after us!

    Hostel was fine, but website screwed up the booking so we were given a double room rather than the twin we had booked. Be wary of what they advertise, we were told it was far from the first time such as error has been made.

    Overall it was a ok stay at the Glencoe youth hostel. The location is fantastic. We were there when it was very hot in Scotland, the hostel building is old and not good in the heat. There was a small window in our room which didn’t allow the room temperature to drop so it made for difficult sleeping. The water was only very hot in the showers. When leaving I spoke to the staff and they said it was their next investment to change. If they can do this it would be a great hostel.

    Location, staff behaviour and beds were good. Room was quite small, and facilities like cab and drinking water was difficult to get. One of the toilets was unclean.

    We stayed at the Glencoe Youth Hostel for a night last weekend. The hostel was in a stunning location which I believe was the strongest element of our stay and the receptionist, Thomas, was very friendly and helpful. We were running late due to a car accident having blocked the road and he was very helpful with our check in process. The room itself was nice, but incredibly hot - it would have been nice to have a fan. Bathroom was good, but not the cleanest. Overall, good stay.

    Owner was very nice and friendly. Kitchen was huge with everything Multiple of everything you need to cook. Location was 10/10. But the rooms where Very basic and the beds where awful thin mattresses that felt about 20 years old. Hostel was very loud at night and got no sleep. Tbh for the amount you pay for a bed I personally think it’s worth it when you can get budget hotels for Similar prices.

    My 2 mates and I made a last minute booking here. Arrived early to suss out where the hostel was and initially didn't find it very welcoming. At check in, the kitchen facilities were closed which hadn't been updated on the website... arrived with a bag of food which we couldn't cook. Overpriced stay. Ourselves and the manager butted heads to begin with but after a long chat all was resolved. We were kindly lent plates, pans and cutlery to use on our camping stoves. Amazing showers! Warm rooms.
