“Excellent conversion of former Fisherman`s Mission.”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

Lochinver has always been missing hostel type accommodation until now. It is the former Fisherman`s Mission and has been refitted as a fine, modern hostel with an attached cafe to boot.
Staff were very friendly & gave me a full tour of the hostel which was very clean throughout.
Excellent showers, good dorm accommodation & a super lounge with leather sofa`s, table & HD TV on the wall.
The Cafe on the ground floor of the hostel is also excellent, with both a daytime & evening menu. I enjoyed sea bass one evening & pizza the next.
The location is great giving easy access to hikes up the classic Assynt hills of Suilven, Canisp &
Quinag, and also close to the fine beaches of Achmelvich & Clachtoll.

What a shame we only had one night at the Lochiver Mission on our cycle tour. We arrived during the melee of the Assynt Highland Games, which were right outside the hostel, and their cafe was very busy, but we were readily shown our room and shown the facilities and everyone was really friendly. A nicely equipped kitchen (there might be a shortage of pans if all occupants wanted to cook) and a couple of luxurious leather sofas and a big tv made for very comfortable stay. We didn't want to leave! We will be back!

My friend and I, stayed here 2 nights during May 2012. The staff were so helpful, in showing us around firstly.

The bedding was very comfortable, and the beds themselves comfortable also. The 'dorms' were actually small, so our dorm had only 6 beds on 1 night, and 4 beds on our 2nd night - That's great also, not to many people getting in one anothers way.

Showers were great, and the shower rooms, with toilet, and area for dressing were great actually without stumbling around.

The sitting room, ith Leather sofas, and a flat screen TV, with great facilities for cooking were great also.

Finally, the surroundings and modern decor of the place was amazing also. It was also super clean throughtout, which is appreciated also. I will be visiting this place in the future for sure. Well done.

Lochinver Mission was fantastic place eat sleep and hang out on our breif one night visit to the area. Super clean @ bright throughout, quality bed linen & towels, great showers with powerful water flow, excellent dinner with fresh local fish selection on menu, enormous breakfast. Only niggle was bedrooms were a little on the hot side even with the radiators turned off. But thus was only a slight niggle because there are no two ways about it - this is the best bunkhouse we've ever stayed in, bar none.

We were delighted with our stay at the Lochinver Mission. We were lucky to have a room to ourselves, however it was spacious, clean and warn. The communal area again was very clean, spacious and with a well equipped modern kitchen area too. The showers were exceptional, spacious, clean and there was always loads of hot water.
Like all bunkhouses you are left to get on with things after checking in, but there was always either staff downstairs in the cafe or available at the end of a telephone if there were any issues or problems.
We would highly recommend upgrading to the Full Breakfast option which was a bargain for an extra £2 a day.
The staff were also helpful in telling us where to get replacement walking equipment (the Boat Chandlers over the road) and groceries.
We will come back here again and again and again.

Sorry, I can't comment of the "Hostel-iness" of this location, but I can comment on the cafeteria / restaurant part of the place.

On a tip from my B+B owner, I dropped in here for a meal in early September, and I was rather impressed. The place was very clean and shiny, and the staff we utterly enthusiastic - they really seemed to be having fun there.

Menu-wise, it veered between "Greasy Spoon" and cafe, but the quality was very good. Local ingredients and made to order when I was there. (Had a pizza followed by Sticky Toffee Pudding - perfect comfort food after a moist day on the coast.) I'd be very happy to return.

The Lochinver Mission only opened around July 2011 and is a welcome addition to hostels in the North West of Scotland. Great location at the harbour area of Lochinver. This is not a hostel in the traditional sense it is a new building and is quite luxurious. Perhaps lacking a little character compared to say for example Achmelvich Youth hostel but in more than makes up for that

When you arrive you are given clean bedding and a towel. The quilts in the room are lovely and warm

All the rooms in the hostel are on the 1st floor with no lift access so probably not suitable for disabled travellers

3 dorms, one with 3 bunk beds one with 2 bunk beds anda family room with 5 beds a double bed with a bed above and a bunk bed. There is a communal area which will have a TV with freeview connected shortly, 2 comfy leather sofas and 3 tables and chairs. If full the hostel will have 15 guests however the kitchen area is just like one in your home. State of the art cooker, large fridge freezer, microwave and toaster and one sink. Very limited storage space for foods. If everyone wanted to use the kitchen I think this could be a problem when the hostel is full

Central heating throughout, one toilet and 2 tolilets with showers. The showers are fantastic power showers and there was always plenty of hot water

For the price £17 breakfasy=t is also included in the cafe downstairs. Cereal, toast and tea or coffee. If you wish you can upgrade for an extra £2 and get a full cooked breakfast.

Cafe downstairs is open from 8am until about 10pm with great range of food most of which is local produce. Prices are excellent a main meal typically around £6to £8 as well as daily specials. I did not try the food but it looked excellent and the portions were decent as well. Cafe was busy even on a Thursday night in September.

Compared to Achmelvich youth hostel this place is 10 times better, cleaner and it costs less, per night. When you consider that you also get breakfast this place is superb value

Highly recommended
