Property Description

    A nights stopover while walking the Great Glen way. Knowledgeable staff, close to the Loch and lovely well-stocked bar downstairs. Had I not fallen asleep so early would have stayed up to sample more of the drinks. Large variety of people staying and using the facilities. Thank you!

    Lovely friendly and welcoming staff, great in-house bar, and the room was very comfortable and spacious. The staff were very happy for me to use the communal areas beyond my checkout time as I couldn’t check in at my next hostel until late into the evening. One of the best hostels I stayed in on the Great Glen Way. This hostel offers fantastic value for money and I hope to return in the future!

    Really friendly and nice staff. Very cozy environment, nice location for a couple of hikes, if you don't have a car. The hostel is very clean and the kitchen is great aswell. And bit to mention the bar, where they serve a lot of great bears and whiskey. The dorms are a bit small, not so much floor space, which is nice when you need to get organised in the morning before you leave. And I could feel the springs in the mattress. Other than that, it is a very nice place.

    Location is not ideal - can’t reach the loch u less you pay to see the castle about 20 mins away (£12/pp). Supermarket reasonably close though. No Atmosphere AT ALL!! weird rules (eg: couldn’t use kitchen after 10pm, couldn’t shower between 11pm-7am). Kitchen was well stocked with good utensils and pretty clean. Had a bar that was mostly empty. Beds comfortable. Shower was terrible - basically flooded if I didn’t stop the water every minute or so. Staff friendly and a relaxed environment.
