    Ideally situated along the Great Glen Way. For walkers out this spring it’s a great stopover point with friendly staff and all the facilities you need along the way - well recommended.

    The guy on reception was lovely, the shop was really useful, the kitchen was well-stocked, clean and it was great to have a living room area as well as a dining room. The position of our room meant there was a lot of noise from reception but other than that, all good!

    A super hostel run by a fab host. our dorm was perfect when we arrived and a couple of extra towels were instantly available upon request. Our stay coincided with the 1st week of reopening after covid -19 so there was only one other couple staying at the same time so we really had the place to ourselves.

    Although you have to walk the last small part along the road, the hostel is ideally located for everyone walking (part of) the Great Glen Way! All the facilities you need are there. I was there when it was quite empty, so I had much of the place for myself. Would recommend it to anyone visiting the area and who is looking for an affordable place to stay!

    Very Good

    The only property that was open in South Laggan when tackling the Great Glen Way due to the coronavirus, this was a basic hostel with a friendly owner and adequate facilities. The twin room had bunk beds, which were less than ideal, and the temperature in the room overnight was a little too hot but the beds were comfy and the showers very good. The kitchen was well stocked and the communal areas (dining room and lounge) had lots of extras (TV, comfy furniture, board games). Would recommend.
