    This is a great hostel! As a family with kids we had everything we needed, spacious beds, access to the kitchen, comfy lounge and a designated bathroom due to Covid restrictions. The best attraction was the chickens - the kids were allowed to look for eggs that we bought for breakfast!. There is a cycling path Great Glen Way 300 m from the hostel.

    A wonderful, clean and friendly hostel that had everything we could dream of. One downside is it is located on a busy road and you must walk on that road to get to it - feels quite unsafe.

    Woderful place though pricy. However, it's hard to find anything as cheap as this in the area. The reception guy was friendly and responsive. Kitchen facilities are great, a whole range of dishes can be prepared with the equipment they have.
