    Perfect place to stay if you're completing the Great Glen Way. The hostel was advertised as fully booked/no vacancy, yet it was basically empty during my 1 night stay. Made for a great night's rest and a good time using the facilities (kitchen, showers, TV room).

    Basic but functional, we were a little surprised to find that the twins were bunk beds rather than 2 single beds. Great location if you are walking the great glen way.
