Property Description

Achmelvich Beach Youth Hostel sits on the NC500, beside a beautiful, sheltered white sandy beach, close to the iconic mountain of Suilven.

This small and friendly hostel provides a relaxing base to explore miles of unspoilt coastline and discover quiet secluded beaches, crystal clear waters and abundant wildlife.

The hostel offers guests mixed gendered shared room accommodation with private lockers. Guests can enjoy a 'Wee Breakfast' of cereal, Scottish yogurt, fresh fruit, tea and coffee; or take advantage of the recently refurbished and well-equipped self-catering kitchen to prepare their own.

Other facilities include a cosy dining area with wood burning stove, a laundry and small shop in reception selling basic provisions, soft drinks and snacks. There is no WiFi because of the hostel's remote location. Chargeable parking is available close by.

Achmelvich Beach is a dog-friendly hostel. If you would like to book yourself and your dog into the hostel, please phone the hostel direct to check availability. There is a small charge of £7.50 per night for your dog when staying in our hostels.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

Please take time to read the house rules before booking accommodation for under 16year olds at this hostel.

I really liked this hostel, there were a few reasons why but mostly i'd say it was the location itself. The staff working at achmelvich yha this season are also great, accommodating and social. As for feed back I can only think of 1 thing tbh (it's not major), but i think a guide on how to use some of the appliances e.g. induction hobs, would go a long way. They are a bit different to other hobs & a struggle to use.
