    Excellent stay. Great central location in a lovely old building. No bells and whistles, just all that you require for a comfortable relaxed time. Staff excellent. Location far better than some other establishments charging a lot more. 'The Crofters' just a few doors along did excellent food and opened at 9 am for breakfast, so this was no hardship.

    Staff and location were fabulous. Even though Ossian's was bang in the centre of Fort William, they still offered free parking. Breakfast was also free and there is a great reception area where you can eat your own take away food and have drinks from the bar. I would say the room and bathroom decor is a little tired and needs updating but this is a hostel after all! Very good value for money and I would be amazed if you could find anywhere in the centre of Fort William for that money.

    Overall we had a comfortable stay. We actually found it very quiet, even though they say on their website it can be noisy. Perhaps it depends on which room you get! Staff were helpful and it's located right in the centre of Fort William. They give a very honest description of the hotel and the rooms are a bit patched up! But it's clean and everything works. I can see why it's listed as a hostel to manage expectations, but there are no kitchen facilities which is a bit confusing.

    We loved our stay at Ossians!! The ladies at the front desk were lovely and helpful! The location was perfect, the room had everything we needed and we managed to get clear skies for Ben Nevis! Had a great weekend!

    Very Good

    This is an old building, once a traditional hotel. If one accepts that, and the somewhat hit and miss provision of modern facilities, what's offered is perfectly adequate. It is unlikely that I was a typical visitor, my requirement being an overnight stay in a busy tourist area at high season. A similar consideration applies to price, which might be thought high but is well-below the local average for the time of year.

    This is a hotel, not a hostel. Everything is in the very honest hotel description : dated, cramped, noisy, no parking, incomfortable bed and doubtfull cleanliness. But it have a « harry Potter’s closet » charm, and is quite cheap for that location in hiking season. If you need a very central location at an abordable price and do not care about all the rest, go for it. If not, find another place !

    It's an over priced dump. Knock it down and start again.
