Just returned from another visit. This must be the 5th or 6th since it opened in its current guise in 1997. Love the location, Love the atmosphere and "craic". Great facilities if travelling on a budget.
Most rooms are bunkhouse style on the first floor, but there are some more homely family rooms upstairs on the 2nd. Nothing is "ensuite" but at this price who cares. It is all clean well laid out and organised. Their huge dining room is my favourite room in the world - full of character and with a view to die for. Aside from a toast and cereal breakfast any cooking is done by you the customer in a large well (perfectly) equipped kitchen, with multiple cooking stations (lots of stainless steel) and fridges. Great attention is paid to cleanliness and food hygiene. There is constant hot water from a large plumbed urn and complimentary (instant) coffee and tea. Most visitors are here for the great outdoors either walkers or geology students with the occasional biker on tour. SInce you have a fair chance of rain in the north of Scotland at any time of year they have a monster and effective drying room. Next to the reception their is a cosy sitting area with wood burning stove, lots of mags, books and games and usually lots of friendly after dinner chat. Reception sells a limited stock of essential odds and ends indluding (critically) beer.
